Boldness is the key word when it comes to accessorizing this season. Browse through the new Ralph Laurent fall/winter 2012-2013 handbag collection for a variety of covetable, on trend arm-candies.

Stocking up on new season essentials? Don't neglect the power of well chosen accessories in defining your look. Whether you're looking for luxurious, glamorous alternatives or look for an investment piece, the Ralph Lauren handbag collection can definitely prove a worthwhile source of inspiration. With a bold approach, the brand aims to make handbags a strong focal point of the new season outfits rather than a simple practical addition to them.

A simple glance through the designs can easily clear any doubts regarding what are the trends that define these colder months. You can embrace the wild side with bold animal prints or through a classy and less conspicuous route with exotic skin texture. Opt for patent leather and a bold color and you'll waste no time trying to find another way of injecting a little more interest into your look. Or, if you're loving the accent on golden tones the new season brings, you can definitely find plenty of alternatives worth indulging in.

The fun part of the collection is certainly the fact that the label brings plenty of alternatives for various comfort levels. If you're not quite ready to show off your love for controversial yet bold elements like golden snakes, you can definitely find more subdued alternatives which can still have that sexy vibe you are looking for. Practical or elegant additions both subscribe to this lovely perspective, so your options don't feel limited to a very particular type of style preference or a well defined age group.

You always have the option of making a statement through color alone. For this purpose, the label suggests jewel tones in a variety of classy shapes especially when it comes to clutches as the least effort-intensive way of making a fabulous statement and rocking the season's hottest style trends. Dare to inject a touch of boldness into your looks by letting your accessories do the talking. You'll definitely manage to set the tone of your outfits with similarly bold alternatives, paired, of course, with a confident attitude.
