Keeping up with the latest trends is no easy feat, but the right bag can help you look polished and of-the-moment without a total wardrobe overhaul. From resurrected classics to new-season styles, these trendy handbags will add the finishing touch to any ensemble.
XL top-handle totes made a major impression this season, reimagined with soft lines, playful constructions and intriguing details. Look to Sixdo, Tibi, 3.1 Phillip Lim and other labels for versions that feel fresh and modern. Meanwhile, slouchy totes got an upgrade this season too, with supple leather and canvas silhouettes that have a relaxed, casual appeal. Chain strap purses are also trending, with designers embracing luxe finishes like resin chains and crystal fringe.
Round bags shaped like geodes and spheres are a fun new option, especially in chic metallic hues. Altuzarra and Marine Serre sent smooth leather crossbody circle bags down the runway, while Flying Solo showcased a petal-festooned style and Edher Gin offered a playfully punk wrecking ball design. Other options include sculptural totes in asymmetrical forms, like Givenchy’s self-described “tumbled” shoulder bag or The Row’s raffia-and-leather bucket bag.
Functional bags with plenty of compartments that divvy up your essentials are another big bag trend for 2024. Whether you prefer a utilitarian style like those seen at Bibhu Mohapatra and Givenchy or something with a more feminine flair like Longchamp’s origami-inspired Le Pliage totes, there’s a solution for every need.
