Forget dumpy purses and shoulder bags; this season it’s all about the trendy box bag. Jagruti Verma brings you a few pieces to start your shopping trip with

In a day and age when we need structure, it’s no surprise that we’re turning back to the box bag. A trend that was inspired by hatboxes of a bygone era and is dressy without being too over-the-top, this one has been sweeping through international style files since autumn last year. We’re ready to waltz into 2017 with this clever and stylish piece on our arms and in our wardrobes, but while the Louis Vuitton styles may be the most coveted, we’re looking for something a little less exorbitantly priced. Here are a few options to get you started.

Casually formal
Looking for a bag that’s neither too casual nor too formal? Here’s an option from Betsy Johnson for you to consider. Available on for Rs 5,760, this black and white beauty is a classic choice that you simply must add to your collection.

Carry it all
The super chic mini trunk from Chumbak is a great carryall. Apart from being an attractive addition to your wardrobe, it’s a great pick for almost any outfit. Get it for Rs 1,495 on

Classy impressions
This little white sling handbag from Marie Claire is a good option for days when you need to create an impression on those who matter. It’s a classic option with minimalistic embellishments that help it stand out. Get it on for Rs 2,699.

Simple & sober
If you’re too lazy to change your bag every few weeks or even for special occasions, here’s an option that you can use every day. Available on at a discounted price of Rs 1,575, this Zinc Wan Olive satchel is a good pick.

College and more
Looking for a cool carry-all option for college? This orange-blue bag is a good pick! At Rs 1,790, it’s not too pricey either. Pick it up on

Rock and roll
All set to party the night away? Take this red and gold TONIQ clutch along! It will add the perfect amount of bling you need to stand out from the crowd. Get it on for Rs 950.

After hours
This little clutch box bag from Hepburnette (we love how the name reminds us of one of our favourite style icons — Audrey Hepburn) will be the perfect companion on a night out. Pair it with a dark, solid-coloured dress and some stylish pumps. Get it on for Rs 675.

The celebratory splurge
Put that Vuitton down and turn to this bag if you’re ready to splurge, but don’t want to have to go into debt for your latest fashion obsession. At Rs 19,000, this blue bag from Furla is an expensive pick, but worth it if you’re a fan of the brand! It’s available on
