If you've got yourself a great handbag, it can make you feel like you can take on the world. At times, the same old black leather handbag can get boring. It's fun to explore new fashion styles and it's always easiest to do so with your accessories, rather than your clothing.

Keen to try something different and out of your comfort zone? It may be a cool style like the 90s-inspired shoulder bag or you may want to discover a new brand like Brie Leon. Whatever the case, we're here to help.

We've scoured all the hottest Instagram trends to find you the top handbag brands that you need to know about. To help make your decision just that little bit easier, we've also picked out our favourite bag from each brand.

1. est2026 – The Curlewis

When it comes to versatile handbags, The Curlewis takes the cake.

The bag – which just so happens to be est2026's first launch – is designed in Australia and made in Turkey, and embodies a classic, timeless yet extremely versatile shape.

The handbag arrives in a multitude of colours like burgundy, black and rose, as well as a mini and medium version. You can also take your pick from an extra gold chain to dress it up, or a canvas strap to dress it down.

2. Brie Leon – The Chloe

If you're after a good quality vegan leather handbag, you need to check out the range at Brie Leon. The unique shapes paired with the gorgeous croc detailing ensures you'll be receiving plenty of compliments when you hold this handbag.

In particular, we're obsessed with The Chloe Bag (and may or may not own it in multiple colours). Take your pick from a black, burgundy or powder blue shade. It also arrives with an adjustable shoulder strap, so you can really wear it as your own.

Where to buy: Brie Leon and THE ICONIC

3. ORLES – Wicker Bag

The basket bag is easily one of the hottest summer trends. How do you find the best one? Head on over to ORLES, a brand that was created by a woman for women. The ORLES wicker bags are made from 100% sustainable wicker. They're also hand-woven, buffed and polished by specialist artisans. No two bags are exactly the same, so each one has its own unique factor.

We're obsessed with the honey tones and gold hardware, making this bag the perfect addition to your summer dress.

Where to buy: Orles

4. Naked Vice – The Christy

The 90s short shoulder bag is making a comeback and so many brands are jumping on board. Looking for something Australian? NakedVice was born right in the heart of Melbourne. The brand is really gaining popularity and is now stocked in loads of top retailers.

The Christy is one of our personal favourites from NakedVice. It's the perfect length and arrives in a range of colours and finishes – that way, you can find something that suits your style best.

Where to buy: THE ICONIC, Myer, Princess Polly and Beginning Boutique

5. iismii – v1.0 Canvas

Personalised handbags are all the rage right now. You can choose to decorate it with your initials or your full name. Whatever the case may be, we recommend checking out iismii. It's another Australian brand on our list that you need to check out.

iismii is where you can find unique and hand-crafted monogrammed handbags. Because of the high quality, it does limited drops every few months so is a brand to keep your eye on. The latest style is the v1.0 canvas and it's our top pick – a fabulous eco cotton canvas bag available in black and neutral.

6. Margi Gaba – The 2515 Baby Bag

If you were looking to incorporate more colour into your wardrobe, we recommend doing so with your accessories. It allows you to keep your outfit minimal and basic, with a fun pop of colour. You can find a range of different styles at Margi Gaba, like the 2515. Again, it arrives in the 90s-style shoulder bag that we all know and love. But, we adore this brand for the use of premium leather and fabulous colours.

This baby pink is definitely a favourite, but there's also a baby blue, yellow and cow-print to choose from.

7. mimekmi – The Lizzie backpack

Sure, a backpack is not the same as a traditional handbag but they are certainly in style and right on-trend. The Lizzie backpack by mimekmi arrives in crystal clear beading and it's a unique piece to add to your collection – one that not many other people would have.

mimekmi is a label founded by an Aussie fashion student. The range of accessories available are all hand-beaded and designed in Australia. Decide between the clear beads, pink or multi-coloured. Although, the Lizzie backpack in Crystal Clear can be worn with any outfit, making it much more versatile.
