Tech hasn’t always been so fashion-friendly, especially for women. However inventions like the Mighty Purse, as well as others, give us hope that more essential accessories like handbags will be modernized, functional and easy on the eyes.

These trendy bags and clutches will tote your things, and keep you plugged in, so you can get back to working or playing.
