We’ve featured denim shoes before, and now it’s time for a different denim delight: handbags.

Our favorite fabric often lends its tough blue exterior to our favorite accessories, and purses are no exception. In fact, they’re quite common. How do you like Coach’s Charlie bag that you can buy on Coach?

If you’ve always wanted to try wearing denim on denim but the thought of doing so sounds scary, then toting a denim handbag with your favorite jeans is the perfect baby step for you to take.

It’s not as much of a commitment as, say, Ashley Greene’s denim shirt and denim skirt, but a denim bag will let you try different colors, cuts, and washes of denim as much as you want if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous.

Just like on jeans, denim on handbags can be anything from beat-down and weathered to studded and sequined to opulently bejeweled. Here’s a compilation of ten different bags, backpacks, and purses that you can wear with your jeans.
