This season, the hippest handbag shape is square. Labels such as Proenza Schouler, Lanvin and Valentino all sent this more serious, uptown style down the runways. For spring, I recommend taking a break from your slouchy hobo in order to trade up to a structured, ladylike tote like the ones shown below.
