Today’s blog is about one of the best women’s addictions. We can’t live without them because they make our life more pleasant and give us a blast of confidence while carrying them! I’m talking about our most crucial accessory, our bag!
My obsession with bags started when I was a little girl. Each year when we celebrated the Sugar festival because of breaking the Fast, I got a new purse for al the sweetness I collected when visiting my family. I remember all the little girls back then were comparing the bags with each other to see whose bag was the prettiest. From that moment on, I always was very conscious when choosing my bags, just to make sure it was my personal statement.
So back in the days I had a bag filled with candy and sweets and nowadays, like most women around the world, I carry my whole life in my bag! Because of its importance, let’s stay ahead of the trends for this year. Keep reading this post to get the top 5 hottest bag trends for Fall Winter 2018.
1. Mini, Midi, Maxi
This fall the size doesn’t matter! We still love the mini bags, make sure you wear the small bags around the neck or cross body. Besides the mini’s a lot of medium sized bags were also carried on the runway this fall. They all had a special touch of detail, like a chain strap, an expressive print or with metal features on it. We go from midi to XL; if you go for big, don’t forget the bigger is the better. Stella McCartney’s showed some of her big bright pouches during the fashion shows. I think a lot of women, including myself, are very fortuned with the trend of big bags this winter.
2. Fake it
We are talking about fur ladies. This year your handbag can be as furry as a Persian kitten hiding under your arms. The furry handbags have a luxury appearance and they will keep your hands and arms warm this winter. Fur example Fendi and Oscar de la Renta showed already some of these cozy designs during the Paris Fashion Show.
3. Multi Bagging
One of the surprising trends this year is the build-a-bag; a combination of multiple bags together, so you have your bag layered with more bags, it really is bags on bags. Layering has moved to another level! The fun part of this layering is playing with differences in the length and the various colors and patterns of the bags
4. Back to high school
This 90’s trend has made its big comeback on the runways this year; The effortless backpack!
This practical, easy-to-weir bag comes in several styles, colors & designs. They can be huge or petite, simple-all-day-everyday or classy and sophisticated, it doesn’t matter which style you choose they go with absolutely any look.
When I saw this bag, I literally could think about one thing; A warm baguette with tuna and green olives in Paris! Don’t ask more..
When it comes to clutches, to me they are the most glamorous bags of all. I love wearing them with a cute cocktail dress or with a super chique evening gown for a fancy event. At Chanel and Saint Laurent we saw some beautiful long and thin clutches popping on the runways this fall. Some of the clutches were held by hand while others were accentuated with chain straps.
As you can read, it seems like we have plenty of design bags to choose from this fall. Which of these trends will you be trying out? Let us know your thoughts by commenting below…
