For starters, retro is no longer a thing of the past. More and more trends have returned in the past couple of years, and to be honest, we’re jumping on the bandwagon faster than you can say “fanny pack.” (As we reported last fall, fanny packs—or “belt bags,” if you want more fashion sex appeal—are back.)
A few of our other current favorite handbag trends include top handle bags, which make for the perfectly chic office bag; box bags, which brings structure to anyone’s bag collection; furry bags, because why the hell not; and, finally, one of our latest must-haves, the circle bag. Each one can be worn from day to night, work to play and everything in between.

Ahead, we break down these five major handbag trends, what they look like, how to style them and some purses to shop right now. Welcome to handbag heaven.
