Often an investment and always a major focal point of an outfit, bags are important. So much so, in fact, that I decided it would be a good use of my time to sift through every day of every city’s street style from this past fashion month to bring you the best purses, period. After all, I'm somewhat of a handbag hoarder collector myself. Was it worth it? I’ll let you be the judge, but my guess is that after you see what I came up with, you’ll come to an indisputable yes, just as I did.
From statement styles that are definitely on trend to more classic purses that you’ll want to wear from years to come, simply continue on to see the best bags from New York, London, Milan, and Paris Fashion Week Street Style, and, of course, to shop them along the way.
