Oversized, woven, and practical cargo bags are all making a major comeback.
Bags always serve a purpose. More than just a fashionable accessory, bags are an essential tool that holds all our necessities. It makes perfect sense to invest in a new bag, possibly even more than another dress.
Trends in bags can be quite capricious—one moment, it’s all about minuscule purses and the next, we’re stuffing everything imaginable into colossal totes.
As we explore the fashion trends for the upcoming season, there’s plenty to look forward to regarding the world of bags. Fortunately, bag trends went for practicality. This provided ample inspiration for investing in pieces that genuinely assist in transporting your necessities from point A to point B. Cargo bags are making a comeback in the spring 2024 fashion trends, while shoe trends prioritize comfort and practicality, which is a welcome change.
When considering bags, you may be keen to retire your trusted designer tote bag to try one of the current styles in fashion. That’s why we’re excited to share the top bag trends that will be big hits in spring 2024.
Intricate patterns and an airy, open texture find expression in straw, leather, rope, and raffia. While traditionally linked with beach getaways, these refined iterations infuse a playful spirit into more elevated endeavours. This bag trend has been spotted at brands like Chanel, Valentino, Fendi, Loewe, Gabriela Hearst, and Bottega Veneta.
Oversized bags have reached new heights, going beyond being large to becoming extravagant. Brands like Ferragamo, Victoria Beckham, Loewe, Bottega Veneta, Coach, Roberto Cavalli, Sandy Liang, Brandon Maxwell, and Cos have taken the concept of “bigger and better” quite literally in their recent shows. Staud, although perhaps bordering on the absurd, still manages to capture attention and admiration.
While the exact commentary behind these oversized bags is open to interpretation, one thing is clear: they provide ample space to carry everything you could possibly need and more. It’s certainly convenient to have the option to store all your essentials without leaving anything behind.
Cargo bags are making a big comeback for Spring 2024. Fendi has been embracing this trend for a while now, so it’s great to see them continuing it this fall. Simone Rocha has also joined in, adding her own twist to this practical and stylish design. With a cargo bag, you can easily access your essentials without having to dig through the depths of your purse. It provides us with a convenient and organized solution for storing small items.
BOLD & BRIGHT
Get ready to welcome the lively vibes of spring and summer with bags sporting vibrant, attention-grabbing colours. Explore electric blues showcased by Valentino, fiery red hues from HERMÈS, and neon greens at Gucci. Embrace the baby blue trend at Ferragamo and Bottega Veneta—colourful bags are the go-to mood lifters for 2024. Feel free to play with colour-blocking or go for a monochromatic ensemble by pairing a matching bag with your outfit.
Fashion brands like Staud, Marni, Tom Ford, Peter Do, and more included clutches to complete looks. Whether it’s a slouchy oversized tote or a polished, structured design, spring and summer are embracing the clutch trend. Even bags with straps or top handles, as seen at Brandon Maxwell, are often clutched by models in hand or under the arm.
