This time of year, everything feels new. The year itself, of course, the healthy habits you're trying to adopt, the goals you're hoping to achieve — it's all surrounded by a shiny, new feeling of excitement. Also new on the scene? A slew of pretty, updated accessories to liven up your closet in 2019. And while some of your favorite labels are sure to turn out styles more than worthy of wearing in the seasons ahead, a new turn around the sun is also a great time to find some fresh favorites.

Also on the style set's radar? Which bags will make it big in the new year. So when three new bag designers dropped on go-to fashion destination Net-A-Porter, you can bet everyone from editors to street style stars takes note. Keep reading for the new handbag brands you'll soon see everywhere, and shop them now before everyone else.
Founded by British-born Iranian Lilian Afshar, Dubai-based L'Afshar crafts box bags from sleek materials ideal for evenings out. Thanks to the brand's super-elevated vibe, L'Afshar's bags have been carried by the likes of Bella Hadid, Laura Dern, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner for red carpet events and beyond. Now available at Net-A-Porter, L'Afshar's inventive clutches (one acrylic piece looks as if it's crafted out of ice) are ready to be snagged for your next evening soiree — but look equally as chic when styled with simple daily separates.
For an icey effect, grab L'Afshar's new acrylic top-handle bag. With the continuance of PVC, acrylic, and other transparent-chic accessories, it's a sure bet for 2019.
Carry this marbled clutch as an evening bag for a luxe finishing touch, and add the chunky resin chain to transition it to an edgy daytime bag.
A classic style with a cool update, this black acrylic clutch features a current transparent acrylic "ice" top handle. Carry it with denim to dress it up, or with a little black dress for a night out.
Crafted from premium Italian leather in Poland, Chylak's bags are as practical as they are pretty. The Warsaw-based brand, started in 2014, focuses on sleek designs that dutifully carry all your daily essentials while still looking polished and elegant. The brand's latest drop, now available on Net-A-Porter, utilizes currently trending materials like patent leather and croc-effect embossing to create stylish pieces you'll wear all year long.
With two compartments and a zipper pouch, this belt bag is small but still easily fits all your must-haves. The designer even disclosed to Net-A-Porter that it's her personal favorite, so you'd do well to grab one for yourself.
With bucket bags clearly not going anywhere in 2019, and croc-embossed styles still going strong, this chic bucket bag is a must-have.
High-shine patent leather and a unique shape give this daily-wear bag a cool, eye-catching vibe.
Considering this handbag brand was initially founded in 1931 and carried by some of Hollywood's most iconic starlets then and now (Zendaya is a current fan), Bienen-Davis is far from new on the scene. It has, however, received a reboot for the current generation — while still paying homage to the elegance of old-school Hollywood. Shop the revamped brand on Net-A-Porter and you'll find small satin purses with polished hardware, and disco-era inspired evening bags made from shiny gold lurex. Wear with a demure little black dress or a statement-making jumpsuit for your next date night.
Black satin and shiny gold hardware make this an ideal evening bag — but try it with your relaxed weekend looks for a fun contrast.
Luxe brocade in a cool grey-toned leopard print is great for a night out with friends.
