We try and keep ourselves updated with the latest trends in clothes but are much more laid back when it comes to bags. This is majorly because bag trends seem to evolve much slower, though one look at the fall 2018 trends is enough to make us rethink this, as the bags are not only unique and out there, but also reveal a great deal about the wearers personality.
Detailing is key when it comes to this season’s bags, for eg: chain straps in many unique patterns like the metallic ball chain or thin multi layered chains to XXL totes or even micro bags. The colors in focus are - Camel, Hunter Green and Cobalt Blue. Let’s take a look at the top 7 bag trends which are popping all over instagram:
Clear Handbags: Ever since PVC bags were showcased by Chanel, the brands have been working on them and now the trend has finally reached the fashion crowd ! What makes it more interesting than the looks is, what you carry inside of it.
Mock Croc: A Mock Croc bags are the texture of the season. The color palettes they come in give a very refined and ladylike look and makes it an ideal work wardrobe staple.
XXL Totes and Oversized Hobos: Extra Large bags are back ! A big and functional bag which is approved by the fashion fraternity is like every woman’s dream come true. Get the right colors in totes for your work and hobos for everything else and you are all set for the season.
Micro Bags: Almost all celebrities will be seen with one of these pinched under fingers. Though it may not be very practical but they are the daintiest trend of the season ! They look chic with dresses and are perfect for after work hours. The mini bag trend has also set in motion the ‘multiple bag’ trend.
Beaded Bags: One of the trends which are worth investing in as they transport you to your younger days. Hannah Weiland, founder of ‘Shrimps’ is largely credited for the return of these bags, “The bag was inspired by the idea of carrying jewellery on your arm,” she says. “It makes you feel special.”
Bucket Bags : The bucket bag trend started in the Spring but is going strong and steady even this winter. We think it's here to stay and for good reason, it’s a bag you can carry to work, lunch date or a weekend trip with the girls.
Tassel / Fringe Bags: Once again, a Spring trend that’s going strong and we will see it through next Spring. There are a wide range of tasseled bags for you to choose from, like Top Handle Bags, Crossbody Bags, Mini Bags And Bucket Bags.
