From your earrings to your shoes, from your head to your toes, you want to look your best and you want to be in style. Some trends are already emerging that can help you stay up-to-the-minute with your wardrobe you look fashionable and chic in any situation.

Of course, your handbag is one of your most important accessories. You can use it to dress an outfit up or down, and it can be as functional as it is beautiful. Here are a few of the hottest trends in handbags that are emerging for 2013 to help get you inspired to create some new favorite fashions this season:

 

Scout Bags

Scout bags come in a variety of styles, from doggie bags to more traditional tote bags. They are not only fashionable handbags — they can also be used as functional bags to carry your lunch, your beach gear or even your workout gear. You can look fashionable no matter if you’re going out on a date or running some errands.

 

Fun Clutches

Clutches are simple and elegant, but they can also be a lot of fun. Clutches that come in bright colors or unique shapes are hot right now. Think of clutches shaped like books or a Rubik’s cube, or traditional shapes in bright or neon colors. You can transform what has traditionally been a staple of evening wear to a fun daytime bag.

 

Flared Gusset Bags

Flared gusset bags are like a cross between a boho bag and a tote. They have a sturdy basic frame that also features gussets on the sides to extend the purse for additional storage. Think about all those times you needed to carry additional items and you tried to cram them into your already limited purse. This purse gives you the option to look fashionable while also getting more functionality out of your purse!

These are just some of the hottest trends to emerge this season, but as always, fashion is what you make it. You can adopt these trends or reject them to create your own. The most fashionable thing you can wear is confidence. Be yourself and choose what you love, and you will create a hot style that is all your own.
