Moreover, are you aware of what handbag styles seem to never go out of style? his year there are a wide variety of handbag styles all done up in great colors,styles, and fabulous materials to choose from. Handbag designers have also made sure not to disappoint when it comes to new styles, and a wide variety of good looking hardware. One such new style is known as the "boxy". The boxy is just that, very square and box like in shape. The new bold boxy shapes are very chic, and are very fashion versatile when it comes to being able to carry the look for casual or formal. So, where did handbag designers get their inspiration form when it comes to the boxy? It appears they borrowed the boxy design from the 1050s. Looking back at photos of "movie stars of the 50s" it's easy to spot a boxy handbag hanging demurely over their forearm. Jumping to present day, it's easy to spot celebrities again carrying stylish boxy.

Handbag Styles That Take Center Stage

Handbag styles such as the tote, gaucho, and saddle bag continue to hold popularity this year. However, for the trendy girl, you'll want to make sure to add a great new boxy style handbag to your handbag wardrobe. Another style that remains popular is the clutch handbag. The Clutch handbag styles of this year are designed a bit bigger, and more classic in design. You might want to check out your closet, you may already have several classic styled clutches you can remix into your fashion wardrobe. Why not save a bit of cash by recycling what you already have at the back of your closet. Save your cash for a handbag design you may not have as of yet.

The Boxy is so on trend. The boxy handbag is a great look, if you are wondering what inspired handbag designers to create the Boxy, think back to the 1950s.

One Of The Most Popular Handbag Trends The Birkin - Can you afford one?


The Fabulous Birkin ! It Remains The Most Popular Handbag Style

Ever since it conception in 1984, Hermes has been kept busy filling orders for the "Birkin" style handbag. In fact if one wants to get their hands on a Birkin handbags one must "stand in line" so to say. A Birkin handbag must be ordered, sometimes years in advance. Its popularity has not diminished over the many years since its conception, this is one reason that the Birkin styled handbag remains the number one style of handbag year after year.

So stylish, so popular with celebrities, so expensive. Yes the Birkin is a handbag that all of us fashionista dream of owning. The style is unbelievably chic, the leather the best in the world, and oh that wonderful little lock makes the handbag so special. However, can the average woman afford the luxury of carrying a true original "Birkin"? A Birkin handbag can cost anywhere from $2000.00 up to $8,000. Yes it would be wonderful to own a Birkin, but most women just do not have the cash to set out on such an extravagant handbag.

The better option, purchase a well made knock-off. There are many designers that are producing the same look using quality leather or in some cases man made materials, selling them at fair affordable prices. I have found some wonderful Birkin inspired handbags at T.J.Maxx and Marshalls at bargain prices.

Silver Boxy - shinny or brunched you will still look like a million bucks!


One of the hottest handbag trend - Silver in every shade and texture. Yes silver, a muted down version of the past shinny numbers.

What's The Hot Trend When It Comes To Color

Moving on to what's popular regarding color for this year's handbags. Expect to see lots of neutrals, and metallic silver shinny or brushed silver is on trend. Classic taupe and tans are also very popular. A variety of soft pastels shades have returned for yet another year? The big trend for pastels this year is pale blush pink Handbags over the years have become quite colorful, from splashy patterns to bright neon's, you name designers have provided it. This year be ready to see a cool down when it comes to color in handbags. Soft pastels as well as all the popular neutral colors will adorn the handbag departments of your favorite department stores. Get ready for soft silvers and blush pinks, as well as classic tans, and the customary blacks and deep browns. Don't fret if you are the kind of woman that has to have bright color in her life. Many designers are still adding lots of brights to their lines. Like Michael Kors, he won't let you down. "Kors new line not only has the soft neutrals but the brights you desire. However, the color trends seems to be heading in the directions of soft unobtrusive colors.

A Bit more on popular pastels - Pastels are hot so hot! The Fashion week runways were full of wonderful pastels of every hue. So, consider adding a soft pastel colored handbag to your wardrobe. I suggest you visit a Marshall or TJmaxx, and shop the handbag department. One can find such great handbags at half the cost of a department store.

You Just Have To Have A Black And White Little Number


The Black An White Craz

If you are only going to purchase one handbag to add to your wardrobe for next Spring, make it a black and white striped handbag. The black and white striped handbag is a classic and been around for ever. The black and white color combination is a sure winner when it comes to handbags, and will just never go out of style. You will be able to pull it out year after year, and make any" Little Black Dress" into an outfit that will get noticed. A handbag with the color combo of black and white can literally be added to most any other color in the rainbow.

Just A Thought - I would love to share

Does one have to spend a ton of cash on a designer handbag, in order to enjoy that new handbag?

Designer handbags can be very expensive, yet it seems that many women are drawn to purchase costly designer handbags. Do you really want or need an expensive designer handbag?

Yes, a handbag is, and most likely will forever be a woman's ultimate fashion accessory. Let's face it most women love handbags. This is one of the main reason handbags are year after year the top selling accessory in the fashion industry. Some women feel carrying the right handbag, is the quickest way to make a fashion statement. Again, for some women, it's all about "who's handbag they are carrying". Many feel it conveys " I have arrived, please take notice of the designer handbag dangling at my fingertips".

The expensive designer handbag has become a status symbol, not only working career woman, but also for the working mother, wife, and single woman with a busy social life. So, is owning a very costly designer bag worth it? I suppose if one truly can afford such a handbag, the question is not really important. However, what about all of the women that live on a tight budget? Actually if one takes the time, and looks hard enough one can find almost any designer handbag in the form of a "knock - off". A knock-off that cost only a small fraction of what the real designer handbag would cost. One also has to face the fact that most high end designer handbags are very trendy, and go out of style from year to year. So ultimately, can most women afford to keep up with the fast pace race of keeping up with the cost of these trendy designer handbags?

If you want to treat yourself to a designer handbag, I suggest you shop wisely. Choose a designer handbag style with a classic design that will give you many years of wear.

      Handbags collection was quite good in Fashion week 2011. I loved all designs in that show. Actually style and pattern used in this year were so ethnic and trendy for every season. I like Clutches collection more than Designer Bags collection.
