These Days, Nobody Wants A Purse Just To Store In The Closet Like Some Kind Of Trophy. Instead, Eye For The Best Bag To Incorporate Into Daily Life. And, We Have Curated The Kinds You’ll Want To Carry Over And Over And Over Again. Dive In!

    One category that moves a little slower is accessories. After all, an exceptional handbag is the difference between a good outfit and a great one. So, if you’re interested in refreshing your look at the beginning of the summer season, we are not going to suggest a long list of “must-have” pieces; instead, we want to focus on the big one that will actually make a difference to your wardrobe: a new handbag.

    Well well well, the 2024 runways have already settled the tone, offering a harmonious blend of functionality and style with innovative silhouettes that will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on the fashion landscape. Because there is no better way to treat yourself than a new arm candy, we have rounded up the key 2024 bag trends to look out for below.

    A warm-weather classic, this season’s woven bags capture the carefree spirit of summer f lawlessly. The Gabriela Hearst leans into the mood with its relaxed Lambskin tote, as the brand’s fishnet meets elaborate fringe detailing for a sweeping, dramatic effect. Well, that’s not all, it redefines the beach bag this summer break with the netted purse trend. As seen on the Chanel, JW Anderson and Gabriela Hearst runways, knitted and macramé bags of all shapes and sizes are conveniently on trend for the warmer months to come.



    Compact and ladylike, the shoulder bag that reigned supreme on the spring runways is characterized by clean lines and a short strap. Turn to Tod’s for a head turning moment, to stay stealth with the soft suede style. This boxy mini bag comes with the T Timeless turn-lock buckle on the upper part. Crafted in soft calfskin leather, this creation with contemporary mood also features an adjustable and removable handle.


    What is the office siren’s work bag of choice? A generously-sized top-handle, of course. The best ones have a lived-in look. As you know, oversized bags have been popular for a couple of seasons now. But there has been a recent shift in how they’re styled. Initially, bags were big but completely zipped and sealed. They offered a nice, polished solution for carrying everything you need in your daily life. However, last season saw a noticeable shift at Balenciaga with an overstuffed bag, that the contents hang out on the sides.

    Well, all of this is because bags are now starting to reflect not just compartmentalization but also the bustling nature of life. It’s as if they’re giving you permission to be your full, messy self, allowing flaps to fling open down the runway. And the funky personality dangles from purses, to loading them up with character.



    With oversized bags everywhere, micro bags feel like a true relic of runways past. And we couldn’t think of anything better, but the bucket bag—a hot silhouette from the mid-2010s—is making a comeback in the most bite-size proportions. At Gucci, models dangled the bucket bag as they sauntered down the runway. The trend has taken a slightly different shape, structured more like a vintage makeup bag. The best thing about this look is that you can’t just toss it over your shoulder; you have to be fully present when wearing it. It’s a bag that demands everyone’s attention, including your own.

    For those who haven’t been paying attention until now: yes, bucket bags are back! Whether mini or oversized, clutched by the strap or slung casually over the shoulder, the silhouettes we love the most strike the perfect balance between slouchy and structured. Consider suede, leather, or drawstring canvas pouches—the ultimate summer companions.



    What happened to the pocketbook? The term is rarely used to describe handbags anymore, because most recent styles don’t possess that dainty, ladylike energy … until now. For Chanel’s most recent show, it showcased the vintage tapestry to parade a small bag down the runway. The polished look is enough to make you yearn for simpler times, when you’d just need to pack a little book instead of your cell phone.

    And yes, we have accepted the mantra that mini bags aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. From mini versions of classic signatures to micro bags that provide just 5 enough space for a couple of loose changes. Tiny arm candies have been spotted on the runways of Chanel, Staud, Versace, Fendi, and Schiaparelli.



    At Simone Rocha, models carried what appeared to be fluffy stuffed animals, often with beady red eyes. And while “accessories shaped like children’s toys that are actually inspired by dark lore” was not a trend on the runway, bags with a similar fuzzy texture certainly were. What everyone wants right now is not just a bag to hold, but one to actually touch as well. Well, the models clutched them close to their chests, like treasure chests filled with the little pleasures of everyday life.
