Like every other aspect of women’s fashion, handbag trends vary from season to season as innovative designers create new styles and also repurpose old motifs. Today’s trendy handbag might be tomorrow’s frumpy style and you don’t want to get caught in an outdated bag when the trends du jour have already moved on!
In the same breath, you don’t necessarily need to jump on EVERY new trend just to look fashionable. Oftentimes trends can be fleeting, so it might not be advisable to invest heavily in a trendy piece, when it will become outdated in a short while. However, it is still useful to stay abreast of what’s in vogue, so you can keep your sense of style current and move with the ever-changing times.
These days, practicality is just as important as style when choosing a handbag. Designers recognize this and today’s trendy handbags are just as functional as they are beautiful. Here are a few of the most popular handbag styles on the market, so you can choose the trend that intrigues you most and stay on top of new developments in handbag fashion.
Cool Crossbody Bags
Sometimes you just want to grab a few essentials and go. That’s when the crossbody bag is ideal! This small, easy to wear style features a long strap that you can sling across your shoulder for easy carrying. They are highly convenient and their hands-free feature is especially attractive for those girls on-the-go who just can’t be bothered with lugging around a handheld bag. Large messenger bags are especially convenient since they are both stylish and functional for carrying all your coveted possessions.
Cute Envelope Clutch Purse
An envelope clutch is often larger than a typical clutch and oozes style from its every square angle. These can be made of various fabrics and materials, but we are partial to cute leather clutches. They are perfect a night out on the town when you need a chic bag to complement your outfit. They’re the perfect size to fit your cell phone, keys and other essentials, plus they’ll look great in your social media pictures! A cool celebrity clutch will be a wonderful addition to your handbag collection.
Chic Oversized Tote Handbags
Ladies are often guilty of stuffing their handbags with virtually everything they think they’ll need throughout the day. Wallet, makeup, cell phone, tablet computer, even shoes have got to fit in there, and it’s a feat of engineering how we find space for all these items. Admit it, you’re guilty! Handbag fashion has (finally!) caught up with our need to be prepared for any possible scenario and huge stylish bags are totally on trend. These super size bags will carry all your essentials, and non-essentials too, and still look stylish.
