Sure, a gorj leather handbag makes your heart flutter. But in wet weather, it'll spot and ruin faster than you can say, "designer disaster!" When it starts snowing, switch to the Dooney & Bourke Smith Bag ($228). The nylon will hold up against the elements while the leather straps and detailing are a decent compromise. The bag comes in eleven different colors, so there'll be one to compliment your coat.
