Anyone who’s had to get dressed and leave the house in the past month knows that choosing clothes and accessories when the seasons are shifting is tricky at best. Which colors are will work? Which textures? How do you make sure that the things you’re buying now will work both immediately and in the coming months? When looking for handbags, the best thing you can do is buy yourself a solid leather bag in a neutral or mid-range bold color and use it as a wardrobe staple into the coming season and beyond. Lucky for you (and all of us, really), the Gucci Cruise 2013 Collection, which includes the Gucci Soho and Gucci Sunshine handbag lines, just popped up on for your buying pleasure.

The Soho Collection includes everything from the fun, casual Disco Bag in a slew of leathers both bright and neutral, to several larger, more businesslike shoulder bags that would look great paired with either a suit or a T-shirt and jeans, depending on your plans for the day. The sleek Soho bags feature leather construction in classic shapes with the iconic Gucci interlocking-G logo embroidered on the front, while the Sunshine bags feature the brand’s Micro Guccissima monogram embossed on leather in a variety of fun colors. Check out our picks from the collection after the jump, or shop the whole Gucci Cruise 2013 collection (including a new chapter in the legendary Gucci Flora pattern) via As an added bonus, Gucci will be offering free two-day shipping on all orders through October 19! Get it, ladies.
