Dogs are conversation starters between dog lovers, but handbags do the same job for the style set. There's often the exchange of a nod of approval (in real life) or a like on Insta once we spot a new bag that's captured our attention for all the right reasons.
But there are certain styles that are so loved they gain instant cult and/or classic status, and you'll see them en masse on the most stylish of arms. We don't know about you, but we've spotted at least five girls this week alone carrying the Ganni beaded bag. Then there's the Staud bucket that's just launched in brand-new colorways. These little bags may at first seem like one-season wonders, but they've been popular for years now, proving longevity doesn't have to come in the form of boring, plain shoppers.
It can be tricky to keep up with the best ones, but this is why we've sifted through the street style shots to find out exactly where everyone is shopping for their new arm candy. You are very welcome.
