After a rough few years, no one can blame us for being a bit superstitious when it comes to the fast-approaching next one. That’s why, this time around, we’re not just crossing our fingers that things will be different. Rather, we’re doing everything in our power to start off 2022 with the cleanest slate possible. First up on our pre-NYE refresh: our wardrobes—better yet, our handbag selections.
Ahead of the new year, our fashion editors discussed the handbag trends they’re willing to leave behind in 2021 and what they’ll quickly replace them with. Think of the latter as a sartorial New Year’s resolution, a promise to shed an outdated accessory and try out something new. But unlike most of our standard resolutions, we’re confident that this is one goal that will succeed far past January 30.
Ahead, see which handbag styles, from bold party bags to purses that really do go with everything, we’re bringing into 2022.
