2023's Hottest Handbag Trends


As we enter the new year of 2023, keeping up with the ever-changing fashion trends can be challenging. As the seasons change, so do the styles and designs that are in demand. The handbag industry is no exception, with stylish new bags emerging all the time. That’s why the fashion experts at ili New York are here to give you the inside scoop on the hottest handbag trends of 2023. Read on and shop today!

Belt Bags

Belt bags are a popular style of bag because of how versatile they are. For instance, Ili New York’s belt bags come in a variety of sizes and colors, featuring adjustable straps, secure zippers, and even multiple compartments. The great thing about belt bags is that they can be worn around the waist or over the shoulder, making them the perfect accessory for a festival, a night out, or a day of shopping.

Crossbody Bags

Crossbody bags are the perfect balance of style and substance. They’re lightweight and comfortable, yet still big enough to fit all of your essentials. Even better, they can be dressed up or down to complement virtually any outfit in your closet. We expect to see a lot of statement pieces in 2023, so look out for crossbody bags with bold colors and prints.

Hobo Bags

While hobo bags have been around forever, they’re certainly making a comeback this year. You can count on their spacious interiors to hold all of your belongings while you’re out and about, but don’t undervalue their aesthetic impact. If you’re looking to replicate a slouchy, slinky style with an urban edge, there’s no better accessory for the job.

Satchel and Tote Bags

Satchel and tote bags are another great option for fashionistas who like to carry around everything they need. At ili New York, we offer women’s satchel and tote bags that range from timeless and trendsetting to bold and bespoke. No matter what your individual style is, we can help you keep up with the latest craze.

Now is the best time to get ahead of this year’s handbag trends, and ili New York is the best place to shop! Discover your new favorite handbag and make sure your style is on point  all year long!

4 Ways to Style Your New Crossbody Bag

4 Ways to Style Your New Crossbody Bag


If you don’t have at least one crossbody bag in your wardrobe by now, you’re seriously missing out. Smaller than purses but larger than wallets, crossbody bags are the perfect size to carry your phone, cash, and other essentials while going out. At ili New York, we have dozens of crossbody bags inspired by the fashion trends of the Big Apple, and today we’re sharing four of the best ways to integrate one into your outfit!

Wear With Jeans and a Tee

Crossbody bags are the ideal accessory to dress up this iconic, casual look. Pair your new ili New York crossbody bag with a plain white tee and dark wash jeans for a simple yet stylish appearance that’s perfect for a trip to the coffee shop or a night out with friends. Consider adding a pair of statement earrings and some chic sunglasses to complete the outfit.

Layer With a Leather Jacket

Leather jackets are a great way to add a bit of stylish sophistication to any outfit. Throw on your favorite leather jacket over a dress or skirt and add a colored crossbody bag for a cool and effortless look that’s sure to turn heads. ili New York offers a wide selection of crossbody bags in a variety of styles, colors, and materials, so you’ll be able to find your next wardrobe staple in no time.

Go All-Out Glam

If you’re looking for an evening look, try pairing your ili New York crossbody bag with a sequin dress or skirt for a glamorous and chic ensemble. Add a pair of strappy heels and some bold jewelry, and you’ll be all set for a night on the town. We recommend the Envelope Clutch Crossbody for this look, which seamlessly elevates your outfit while keeping all your belongings at your side.

Style With a Summer Dress

You might need to wait until the weather warms up a bit for this one, but once summer hits, you’ll have the optimal outfit for any day of the week. Summer dresses are always a great option when you want to look stylish, and they pair perfectly with a small leather crossbody bag like the Midi Sac Crossbody. Opt for a bright colored dress, sandals, and sunglasses for a cohesive, summery style.

No matter how you style your new crossbody bag, we’re confident it will become a go-to accessory in your closet. Find yours at ili New York, and don’t forget to check out our women’s backpacks, wallets, and more!

Find the Right Cleaner

When cleaning your leather wallet, it’s important to use the correct cleaner. Regular soap and water can cause discoloration and damage, so it’s important to find a gentle cleaner with natural ingredients like beeswax or plant-based oils.

A soft cloth

Use a Soft Cloth

When you’re ready to clean, use a soft cloth or brush to gently buff away any dirt or grime. Make sure the cloth is dry and free of any lint or fibers that can scratch the leather.

Keep it Dry

To keep your leather wallet looking its best, keep it away from moisture. The leather can become brittle and cracked if exposed to too much water. If you do get your wallet wet, be sure to dry it off immediately. Make sure to also give your wallet some time to air-dry!

Store Your Wallet Properly

Leather wallets should always be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Sunlight can cause the leather to fade and crack over time. It’s also important to make sure the wallet isn’t stored near any heat sources, as this can cause the leather to become brittle and dry.

At ili New York, all of our leather wallets are crafted with the highest quality materials and come with RFID protection. No mater if you seek a classic black style or a more colorful wallet, you can find the perfect wallet to suit your needs. Shop with us online today!
