2022’s Essential Bag Trends
These are this year’s must-have bags
By Danielle Viljoen
Bags in Bold hues are sure to make a statement and add dimension to any wardrobe. These bright hues give new meaning to arm-candy in rainbow brights and creamy leather textures.
The Bucket Bag
Bucket bags are truly the shapeshifters of the bag family. While the bucket bag tends to be a recurring theme, it takes on many forms as fashion evolves. Transform your shoulder bag into a sling with a statement strap or accessorise with bangle detailing in the form of a handle.
Clutch bags are hardly newbies to the accessory department. Over the years we have seen the loyal clutch replaced with mini bags and those alike. Unrestricted to their initial designation, ‘evening bag’, these petite pouches are the wardrobe staple you need, day or night.
Bags in high shine and metallic embellishments are no longer restricted to the dance floor. High-shine items in unlikely fabrications will elevate even the simplest of daytime looks.
Circular bags make for the perfect day-to-night companion. Small in size- these disk-shaped bags are ideal for carrying the essentials.
Bold hardware and chain detail will notably be the most popular embellishment or fabrication this season. If you’re one to steer clear of jewellery; eye-catching metal details add extra flair to your overall look.
The Shoulder Bag
The shoulder bag is a recurring trend that has resurfaced over recent, consecutive, years thanks to the 90’s trend. While bold hardware screams 90’s, a colour block version gives this bag an updated look.
If versatility could be represented by anything other colour or hue than black, then tan would be ‘it’ for me. For the woman who carries the world in her bag - look at a bucket tote complete with an additional strap to be converted into a crossbody. Alternatively, lose the baggage and opt for a crossbody phone bag made from up-cycled leather offcuts.
