Contests: The 5 Must-Have Handbags of Winter 2014. You’ll Never Guess Who Topped The List

*Hint, hint* At the bottom of this piece, you’ll have the opportunity to win winter’s must-have handbag!

Depending on where you live, you may have already experienced that first blast of cold weather, which means it’s time to start priming your wardrobe for the winter ahead. It’s easy to focus on scouting out that statement-making coat or gathering up as many so-cozy-you-don’t-want-to-take-them-off sweaters, but there’s another style staple that should be top of mind come winter: your seasonal handbag. After all, when winter’s chill really sets in and all you want to do is pile on as many layers as possible, it’s your gorgeous bag—not that scarf you’ve had for ages or those boots that are on their last leg—that will stand out and reveal your true fashion savvy.

And sure, any great-looking bag will go a long way toward brightening up your often-neutral winter ensembles. But wouldn’t you rather be carrying one of the five must-have bags of the season!? Keep reading to see our top five picks for winter (and don’t forget about the special contest that you and your accessories collection do not want to miss).

5. Joni Suede Fringe Clutch by Michael Kors, $895

4. 31 Hour Bag in Glacier by 3.1 Phillip Lim, $750

Take winter whites to the next level this year with this super-sleek foldover bag from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Roomy enough to tote to work, but compact enough for carrying around on your Saturday shopping trips, this timeless white number is practically made for pairing with ankle-zip skinny jeans, a creamy white turtleneck and crisp white car coat.

3. Medium Tapestry and Leather Bowling Bag by Burberry Prorsum, $2,295

This structured bowling ball bag comes from the stunning Burberry Prorsum collection. It’s a smaller (and less expensive!) version of its hand painted cousin that was plastered all over the Fall/Winter ’14 runways.  The bold colors in this geometric ethnic bag pair perfectly with slim ponte pants and cozy camel sweater.

2. Classic Flap Bag by Chanel, $3,700 

Velvet was another taking over the runways for Fall/Winter ’14 collections. From Fendi to Emporio Armani and Nina Ricci, this sensual fabric is back in full force. The silky velvety bag by Chanel is too luxurious not to covet. Pair this with a leather skirt for happy hour with the girls or jeans or a faux fur vest for a cozy  lunch-time rendezvous.

1. Cleo Cross Body Bag by Jimmy Choo, $882


This is Wantable’s most coveted winter handbag. It’s perfect for this season’s holiday parties and this pint-sized beauty has all the sparkle and shine you could ever need—plus some to boot. Mixing eye-catching metallics with blindingly beautiful gold glitter, Jimmy Choo’s cross body bag will give that winter LBD the extra kick its been needing.
