The spring 2023 season is all about shoulder bags, hobo bags, small top handle bags, and the anonymous handbag. While I am on the hunt for the perfect top handle bag, my spring handbag capsule is full of my shoulder bags and hobo bags which are small or medium in size. They are also my bags without obvious logos.

While many handbags have a logo on them, since designers and brands like to identify themselves, the idea this season is not to wear a bag which screams the designers’ name. If the logo is large, and part of the design, then it is too loud for spring 2023. The idea is to have a bag people will have look closely at to identify, or even ask you about. That is the anonymous handbag.

In addition to the anonymous handbag, the size this season is small to medium. While the runways have also shown oversized bags you can fit the kitchen sink inside, the streets have not taken to the trend. If you want to try and bring it to the streets, power to you, but remember, you will need to allocate extra time in your schedule for finding your car keys. Those bags are huge!

Handbag capsule wardrobe winter 2023

The winter season is here! This means it is time to switch into my winter handbag capsule wardrobe for the new year. For the winter season, the bags I plan to rotate are simple. The winter season is short, and I plan to attend casual events as well as keep things more on the casual side. This means I will be reaching for handbags which are casual, practical, and on trend.

The hobo is still going strong, as well as moon shaped handbags. For the winter season, I plan to wear my caramel hobo handbag when I need a roomy bag, and my smaller, moon shaped handbag when I am in a trendier mood. Love them both!

Of course, shoulder bags are hot this year too. I plan to rock the green handbag when I want a pop of color, and the black one when it is time to be classic. Both of these shoulder bags can also be worn cross body when I am running errands or I want to be hands-free; even though cross body bags are over, sometimes it is nice to have that versatility.

Hobo Handbags

Classic Shoulder Bags

As we move into 2023, handbags trends are moving into quieter territory. Steer clear of logo bags, and any bag that is trying to show off or grab attention. The quiet handbag is all the rage. Invest in bags this year which are high quality, versatile, practical, and simple. Colors are fine, as well as neutrals. As long as the bags are simple and chic.

Size matters in 2023. Oversized bags are over. Of course, when you are going somewhere and need a tote bag, by all means, wear a tote! That being said, wear the smallest bag you can get away with and carry what you need to bring with you when you leave the house. Mini, small and medium bags are what’s hot for 2023.

Rule of thumb for 2023: Small, simple, and chic.

Holidays 2022 capsule wardrobe

Happy Holidays! If you have been following along for awhile now, you might be wondering why my capsule wardrobe post is a little bit different this season. As I look back on the past few holiday capsule wardrobes, I realize that they feature pieces from my fall and winter capsule wardrobes, and really only one look for holiday events. I decided my holiday capsule wardrobe should not be a regurgitation of my fall and winter capsules, rather, it should only feature holiday specific pieces. So, a scaled back and more targeted holiday capsule wardrobe is born.

If you are looking for everyday outfits, please check out my fall capsule. If you are looking for accessories, please check out my fall shoe capsule and my fall handbag capsule. My winter capsule will be coming soon with warmer pieces, so stay tuned!

This holiday season, the events I have lined up are on the casual side. This means my high heels and dresses get to continue to collect dust in my closet. Mmmm, slightly disappointed things are so casual this year, yet slightly relieved I can wear comfortable boots to events. haha, so torn!

This sequin shirt is fabulous for casual holiday events. It is warmer than a dress and can easily be worn open as a jacket over a black top, black tank top or black tube top, or alone as its’ own piece. Of course, you can pair it with any color of top, I just prefer black. I plan to pair it with my dark wash wide leg jeans since they seem like the dressiest of my current denim collection. Paired with my comfy golden boots, and I feel festive and ready to stand at an event. Love that!
