We will never have enough handbags! Especially this season after almost one year of lockdown. If you are a bag lover, then your handbag is one of your closest friends. Because in addition to carrying your essentials it expresses of your attitude as a person. Whether you are a practical, chic, or fancy kind of gal this season has some treat for you. Below is your ultimate guide to fall\’s latest bag trends. Enjoy 🙂
1 || Texture: Tiger-Skin, Python Skin, Rope Bags
So how do you update an older trend? Make it in a different texture of course. Fashion brands have added everything from python skin to tiger-skin to their traditional shapes in the attempt of luring us back to them. If you have a relatively basic wardrobe, let’s say, work-appropriate, then this trend could really help up the fashion ante… These bags are party-favorites too. Consider a rope bag like the one we saw at Bottega for an instant update.
2 || Phones’ Bags: Just For Your Phone
Mini and micro crossbody bags be gone! The newest trend to invade the streets and our lives after COVID-19 is the strappy mobile case, or the cellphone carrying case, different names but the function is one! This new must-have accessory wound its way into our lives following the massive changes overtaking us. Perhaps the calls for more practicality and functionality resulted in this slim and sleek strappy purse that can be worn as a crossbody or a neck purse, and will only hold our mobile phone and perhaps a couple of cards and keys. So if you want to ditch your stuffed tote and lighten up your load physically and mentally phone bags are your best choice.
3 || Ladylike: Flap Bags Or Top Handle
This is the trend that just won’t go away, hence making it a timeless option at this point. The flap bag has proven itself to be versatile and efficient in its formal job description: holding our belongings. In a variety of shapes sizes, the flap bag isn’t just a shoulder bag anymore. Numerous iterations have been introduced, from top handles to clutches. Once again the way a bag is carried will also update the look; shoulder, clutch hold, or rope hold.
4 || The Work Tote: Back To Work
A bag that fits it all… One of the most trending handbags this season is the “back-to-business tote”. As many of us have gotten back to working from the office phase, it is essential we feel supported in carrying all of our daily essentials.
5 || Oversized Or Undersized: Huge Or Tiny
Huge and tiny handbag sizes are no longer as ridiculous as they used to be. If you opt to shop an oversized tote, always go for a supple or soft leather option that will fold where it isn’t full. This will allow the bag to inflate or deflate depending on the contents of your bag. When shopping for the teeny tiny handbag of this season, make sure it\’s structured and the best advice we can offer you is to try and narrow down your handbag essentials this season.
6 || Fuzzy: Wool And Shearling
Aka the huggable bag. We have seen plenty of wool and shearling babies on the runways. Maybe designers have considered our overwhelming desire to beat a hasty retreat to our living room sofas. Seen on the likes of Burberry, Chloe, and off-white this trend will offer you the coziness and the warmth you need this winter.
7 || Retro: Saddlebags And The Old Papillon Tube Bags
Seen at Prada and LV, these handbags take us back 50 years ago. They are super trendy and go super well with this season\’s functionality.
8 || Chains Are Here To Stay
We have said it before, chain handbags will look as trendy in five years as it does now. Chains are one of the most trending features this season that proved to have become a must-have. Steadily growing and reminiscent of decades ago, almost anything with chains amongst its design has become popular and won’t be as quick to date itself… You can own a necklace, a blazer, a pair of stilettos, or a handbag with chains as the hero feature, and rest assured it will look trendy for many years ahead… Having established that, treating yourself to a new chain-embellished handbag this Fall will give you the IT look of the season… Rich, timeless, and sophisticated…
