Handbags we are lusting after this season!

In winter we're forced to cover up our lovely outfits in giant jackets and coats. So if anything needs to stand out, it's our accessories – specifically, our handbag.

Whether your bag is purely for show or whether it contains your entire life (laptop, wallet, make-up, tampons…), it's an essential for any style-conscious lady.

Here are a few we're dying to get our hands on this season…

1. The clutch
Unless you're seriously minimalist when it comes to personal possessions, a clutch bag is strictly for nights out, but it beats carrying your giant leather handbag through a nightclub any day.

Hard Glitter Clutch, €52, Warehouse

2. The shopper
A hold-all, functional bag will see you through well into next year. We love this leather and suede mix one:

Leather Suede Lucy Shopper, €69, Oasis

3. The satchel
Perfect for accessorising your winter woollies. How gorgeous is this structured burgundy one?

Panel Satchel, €29.99, New Look

4. The "holds everything, and I mean everything" bag
It's an overnight bag, an airplane carry-on and everything in between. We all need a bag with seemingly endless capacity for storage. So what if you need to replace the zip every once in a while?

Pebbled Faux Leather Tote, €25.45, Forever 21

5. The budget buy
If you're the kind of girl who wears a different bag with every outfit, budget buys are your best friend. We're in love with this navy snakeskin number:

Contrast Shopper, €22.99, New Look

6. The backpack
Festivals, nights out or general day to day wandering around – a backpack will see you through.

Pile Backpack, €29.99, H&M

7. The obligatory expensive one
A girl can dream…

Michael Kors Bedford Zip Top Satchel, €350, Brown Thomas
