It has been a long time since I have seen something so bold, so much, so shiny, as the attack of the silver handbag. I am perplexed by the myriad of handbag options in this in-your-face color. I mean really, how wearable is a big, bold silver metallic bag? So maybe tasteless heiress Paris Hilton can sport one, but can the soccer mom (no offense)? And these aren't the only ones. I have also spotted new silver bags by Furla, Michael Kors, Tod's, Bally and Lambertson Truex. So take cover - we are under attack!

To see my vote for the most wearable (and cheapest!) silver handbag I've seen so far,
Nine West Pocket Squared Hobo, $62.10. This matte silver bag delivers this wild trend in a subtle, totally wearable fashion. It is not gaudy or flashy, it's just right. And when the trend is over, you won't feel bad about chucking it to the curb (or not).
