The handbag trends to add to your handbag rotation
There’s a sweet spot where those who follow fashion trends religiously and those who only dabble in them can meet: the handbag. Unlike trends focused on clothing, which don’t come with a guarantee of lasting power, handbag trends are a lot more flexible. Practicality is (almost) always baked right in, too.
Like the top shoe trends of 2022, the trends this year are notably less about the gimmick and more about function. Granted the Spring 2022 presentations also offered the occasional just-for-fashion’s-sake item here and there, in the handbag category, it’s all about balancing fun and no-nonsense. Ahead, is a bag for your consideration.
