There’s something refreshing about adding new things to the closet. Depending on which hemisphere you live in, Spring and Winter 2022 collections were launched sometime back, and there are some truly interesting trends that deserve your attention. This post is all about handbags, and we are discussing the styles that were everywhere on the runways and are likely to become fashion goals.
Cutesy Bucket Bags
The bucket bag was a rage some years back. Besides the structured shapes, bucket bags are also practical, especially when compared to the micro-mini variants that were vogue a while back. Team these handbags with skirt suits (another major trend for 2022) or with a nice summer dress. Choose from pop colours for that accent. You can click here to see more of the style.
The Slouchy Hobo
Talk of easy-breezy designs with a practical element, and you would be happy to find the slouchy hobo making a comeback. Hobos were popularized by many designers & celebs, such as Kate Moss, and we believe that the style is an investment for years to come. The slouchy style only makes hobos more practical for regular days.
The Crescent Moon is Here
If you are a 90s kid, you probably have seen your mom carry these crescent moon styles. This style of shoulder bag works for various occasions, including office meetings, and you can find numerous ideas to choose from, although the inspiration remains the same. Check the collections of Dior for a few trending looks. Keep it minimal and simple with basic accessories.
The Extra-Large Tote
Totes are functional handbags that are worth investing in, and in 2022, you will see these supersized and extra-large totes that promise space for almost everything. A.W.A.K.E. Mode, Chanel, and Balmain are some of the brands that need your attention. While more slouchy designs were seen in many collections, you can also go for structured designs that have a dedicated space for your laptop.
Chains can be seen everywhere in spring 2022 collections. From sandals and loafers with chain detailing to chunky chain neckpieces and bracelets, the idea inspired many. Oversized chain straps are also a thing in handbags for the season. Plastic/nylon thick chains in bright shades made a splash everywhere, while designers like Stella McCartney worked with metallic chains to accentuate simple designs.
The last one on our list is an ode to the older times. Hardware designs were inspired by embellished elements and metallic hues. Gold and silver hardware could be seen in many collections, including larger, thicker chains that we just mentioned. Even a standard shoulder bag can be a true trend with just the right accessory details.
