The temperature is dropping, snow is falling, and holiday cheer is in the air. And along with your favorite cashmere sweaters and leather pants, it’s time to pull out some of your favorite winter accessories.

Select your new favorite with this helpful guide that can help you find a one-of-a-kind winter bag that blends seamlessly with your cold-weather wardrobe.


Try on these 7 winter bags for the holidays and beyond


Whether you’re running errands, going to the office, or heading to a formal event, the right winter bag fits both the season and the style you’re going for. These 7 winter bags are great functional accessories to add to your winter wardrobe:


  1. A bigger convertible bag

If you’re looking for an everyday purse that fits every occasion, look no further. A large, convertible purse like the Midi Maestra is exactly what you need this holiday season. This sleek Italian leather purse comes in a variety of colors, from sand and ice to more festive options such as forest and merlot. Wear this bag as a backpack while you run your daily errands, then convert it into a shoulder purse, crossbody, satchel, or tote for your holiday events.


  1. An oversized bag 

When traveling between cities for the holidays or through your daily commute, you’ll need a sturdy bag that can hold all your essentials. The Doctor Bag is a great oversized option that offers plenty of space for you to store anything from a laptop and your favorite pair of headphones to an extra cardigan or a scarf. Made out of genuine Italian leather, this large tote will last the test of time.

  1. A clutch

With so many layers, a large purse can sometimes weigh you down. Whether you’re going out for a date night, or attending a formal event, a tetured clutch works perfect for both. Choose either a neutral tone for all your winter outings, or make your purse a statement piece and opt for a bold, holiday color such as gold or red.


  1. Bucket bag

For a winter bag that’s bound to turn heads this season, try a festive bucket bag. SENREVE’s Fiore Bucket Bag features a structured shell in croc-embossed vegan misto leather with a soft interior pleat. This bag is essentially a trendier, studier, more practical version of Santa’s famous sack. Go bold and add a unique twist to your winter wardrobe with a fern or currant hued purse.  


  1. Shoulder bags

A timeless classic that pairs well with every outing – come Christmas snowfall or winter sunshine – is a shoulder bag. For the best winter shoulder purse, choose one that’s made using high-quality materials that are water and stain-resistant, such as leather. These purses are chic and sleek, making them the perfect accessory for a holiday dinner or a casual shopping trip.


  1. Quilted bags

A cozy, quilted bag is a great accessory to top off your winter wardrobe. With a cushioned exterior, this bag is the middle ground between sleek and sophisticated, and is right on trend for the current moment. The soft square pattern adds texture to any outfit, making this a great option for a wintertime monochrome look.


  1. Fur bags

Fur boots, fur coats – why not add in a fur purse to complete your wardrobe? Whether faux or real, these items are a statement accessory this winter with their unique textures and fun colors. If you’re feeling daring, choose a fur purse as white as snow or a deep purple, or go more neutral-toned with a sand, black, or brown hue.

What should you consider when looking for a winter bag?


The perfect winter bag is within arm’s reach. Just keep these features in mind when looking for the ideal winter bag:


  • Closure and interior materials. When it comes to winter bags, it’s important to look for one that features zipper or clasp closures and a soft interior. This way, you won’t need to worry about your electronics getting too cold or any moisture getting inside as you head from one destination to the next.

  • Material. Choose a purse that will last you through the snowy, cold winter season and long after. Handcrafted Italian leather and vegan leather, especially splash-resistant or water-resistant designs, can help combat stains as well.

  • Interior space. Choose a purse that offers enough room on the inside to store your winter cap, gloves, scarf, or even an extra sweater if you’re expecting a chill. Especially if the winter weather is unpreditable where you live, you never know when you’ll need that extra layer.

  • Pockets. The last thing you want to do is dig to the bottom of your purse in below-zero weather searching for your car keys. Instead, try a purse with multiple interior and exterior pockets so you can have a dedicated space for each of your essentials.

  • Style trends. If you want to choose a bag in season, go for it! But keep in mind the longevity of that style. Bright colors or bold patterns may not last the test of time, when sleek designs in more neutral colors will.

  • Color. Neutral hues such as black, brown, or beige pair well with any winter ensemble. Or, if you’re feeling festive, a red or green bag is bound to put you in the holiday spirit.

  • Durability. Ideally, you want to purchase a bag that can easily carry your laptop, keys, lip gloss, wallet, gloves, and hat without pulling at the seams. A high-quality leather bag will ensure that you can hold all your items without worrying about your straps ripping.
