Like all ensembles, no good outfit is complete without the perfect complementary handbag and this year the resort collections are placing extra emphasis on ready-to-wear handbag pairings across the runway.

So what can we look forward to this year in handbag fashion? The resort world is bursting with fabulous handbag designs for Spring 2014, but we had to pick just one favorite.

Reminiscent of antiquated mid-century fashion accessories, top handle handbags have recently evolved into a fashion staple suited for all seasons and style lovers alike. Easily adorned, the top handle handbag gives a posh polish to any ladylike ensemble, day or night.

The fresh take on the classic style is presented through modern ombré colors, fashionable graphic prints and intricate embellishments like neatly placed studs and geometric cutouts.

The truly versatile design is perfect for street style fashion. The top handle handbag can instantly add a touch of femininity to a stone wash denim boyfriend pant and oversized sweater combination. Not only does the little handbag add a touch of chic to an otherwise more masculine look, the top handle handbag can be paired with a sweet party dress or a LBD for a show stopping evening out on the town.

The top handle handbag is a must-buy for all of the style savvy shoppers out there.
