Handbags & Purses for Women

If you want to truly get to know a woman, take a peek inside her handbag. Our handbags are like tiny windows into our lives, and these all-important storage bags aren't merely just fashion accessories; they help keep our sanity intact. Whether you're more of a clutch carrier or you never met an oversized tote you didn't love, women's handbags and purses come in all styles and designs to meet every need, from work to evening and everything in between. Switch bags out for different seasons or for occasions and keep your purse on point.

The Cold Shoulder

Easily one of the most popular purse styles, shoulder bags are roomy and spacious with a handle long enough to slip over your shoulder for easy carrying. From high-end Chanel bags to casual straw shoulder bags, there are endless varieties to choose from. Some options offer an additional longer strap that you can remove or add to create a crossbody option. Styles like a slouchy hobo create plenty of storage space for your essentials, and more. With interior pockets for your phone and keys, shoulder bags are a good option for women on the go who need a handbag that's long on room but not short on style.

A Cross to Bear

You can stash just the right amount of stuff in a crossbody, and with a long strap that slides across your chest for a hands-free design, these purses are perfectly created to free you up for more important things. Though designer crossbodies by brands like Louis Vuitton and Dooney and Bourke are lovely, there are plenty of options for colorful crossbodies by brands like Vera Bradley and Michael Kors. Simple, chic, and functional, these can't-miss carriers offer the perfect amount of purse versatility.

Tote the Note

Toss everything into an oversized tote and head out the door without worries. Larger than a shoulder bag but smaller than a weekender, a tote is generally open on top to make it easier to reach inside and access items. Also referred to as shoppers, totes are a chic compromise between carrying a briefcase or backpack and a purse. Combine everything into one handy handled bag and get it together.

Falling into Your Clutches

For those nights when all you need is some cash and a lipstick, a clutch is the answer. Some clutches have a handy loop for carrying around your wrist, while some are envelope-sized and perfect for carrying under your arm. Another clutch consideration is the built-in wallet; these options offer interior pockets for credit cards and cash, keeping your clutch compartmentalized. Only bring the basics with a chic, classy clutch.
