While we’re still on the fence about some Gen Z outfit choices (Portia from The White Lotus didn’t do that generation any favors), the 20-something set has taught Us to take more risks with our style. Lately, we’ve been inspired to experiment with bold silhouettes and pops of color. It’s time to retire our drab wardrobe and add some new staples to the mix!
This year, the fashion forecast is all about turning accessories into accents! From belt bags to box bags, and hobos to handles, the 2023 purse trends are all statement pieces. We selected our 18 top picks below, most of which are under $50. Treat yourself to some new arm candy with these must-have handbags below!
