New Delhi, Feb 11 (IANS) Bags are important accessory for women. They not only carry their essentials, but also help them make a style statement. So, keep up with the latest trend by getting your hands on quilted or trunk shape bags.

Kushal Chudiwala, founder of Toteteca Bag Works, shares a list of bags for women that are in trend right now:

* Trunk shape bags: The classic trunk shape is something that's very much in vogue right now. Its old school look has made a comeback in recent months. A sling based on a classic trunk style is absolutely the bag to have right now.

* Large sized messengers: A slightly more feminine take on what is traditionally a unisex shape is really hot right now. For example, a sleek envelope inspired messenger. It is just right for a confident work look.

* Transparent handbags: Showing off what you are carrying, the transparent bags work best in small sizes and compact proportions.

* Quilted bag: The next best thing is a quilted bag. Functionality and simplicity is key for the look. Basic but durable shapes in quilt pattern look stylish on the runway and off it.
