Up Hi/Down Lo: Top-Handle Bags

Sure, we’ve yet to meet a handbag shape we don’t like, but a structured top-handle bag is quickly becoming our go-to purse for, well, everything. A proper and elegant office companion, this trendy iteration is equally fit for a night out — especially ones with a longer strap for hands-free convenience.
They usher in our most feminine sensibilities and stand out in a sea of slouchy satchels. From The Row's soon-to-be-iconic, colorblock top handle — an instant favorite of Miroslava Duma's — to Anne Klein's classic black mini, this is an arm party calling your name — no matter your budget.
