The Top 2020 Handbag Trends to Know


This is important information.


For the handbag obsessives, let's dive into the latter a little more. This year will bring a fresh array of bag designs, and already we've got a sneak peek of what both spring and fall 2020 collections have to offer. In order to make all this information digestible, here are the top bag trends to know for 2020. Bookmark this page or text it to your group chat, because everyone deserves to know about the latest must-buy arm candy.

Hobo Bags


This style is defined by their crescent shape and slouchy silhouette complete with a handle or strap that makes it easy to wear over your shoulders. Though they were once on the arms of every It-girl in the early 2000s, trends like micro purses have eclipsed their popularity. Have no fear, though—in 2020 hobo handbags are making a comeback in all sizes and textures. We spotted them on the fall 2020 runways of Brandon Maxwell (above) and at Zimmermann, so designers are poised to get this design back on your shelf asap.

Chain Embellished Bags


Chains are popping up everywhere, from your jewelry to shoes  and now handbags. Look for your favorite totes, satchels, and minaudières to all receive a chain strap as an added detail. Tory Burch's fall 2020 collection debuted a host of chain-embellished handbags (as pictured above) while JW Anderson decided to make it the statement design on its accessories. Meanwhile, Ulla Johnson offered glamorous thick, braided chained bags on its fall runways. If you're feeling ambitious and crafty, you might even want to DIY your own gold or silver chain on a bag in your closet.

Multi-Compartment Bags


It's not enough to carry just one bag—in 2020, you'll want to carry two or more. Multi-bagging, or bags with multiple compartments, will be everywhere if Coach (pictured above) or Staud's pre-fall 2020 collections have anything to say about it. On a recent trip to the latter's showroom, I spotted a tote with three detachable pouches hanging from the handles. J.W. Anderson and Peter Pilotto are some of the other fashion houses that have hopped on this multi-bagging train. Though the style availability is limited right now, expect more retailers to pump out this design as we head deeper into 2020.

Larger-Than-Life Bags

Larger-Than-Life Bags


The itty-bitty bag had its moment. and now it's time for the extra-large ones to have some fun. From Opening Ceremony's super large tote, which could probably stow away a human, to the huge croc-embossed ones on Sies Marjan's spring 2020 runway to Longchamp's fall 2020 offerings, big bags are flaunting their sizes and popularity. Even Jacquemus, who gave us the beloved "Chiquito" minis, upgraded their bag dimensions for 2020, proving that the theme is: the bigger, the better. Fingers crossed you won't run into trouble carrying your oversized tote in pesky situations.

Bamboo Handles

For spring 2020, designers have been looking for ways to incorporate more natural elements into their accessories. One such earthy material we spotted on the runways was bamboo, fastened into handles on the runways of Miu Miu, and Prada.  The detail is unique, but wearable, and offers a textured look to your handbag. Sign me up for this design, please. I will happily part with my regular leather strap crossbody bag.

Puffy Pouches


Overnight, it seemed like every fashion girl had Bottega Veneta's gathered leather bag under their arms. It's cool, minimalist, and tasteful—everything you want in an It accessory. The fervor for this style will only continue to grow in popularity as more designers create variations of these cloud-like pouches in different colors and sizes. Tory Burch sent a vibrant red pouch down her spring 2020 runway, while Louis Vuitton opted for more ornate options. 

Rope Bags


For their spring/summer collections, designers always seem to alternate between nautical-inspired details, crochet, or raffia for accessories, so it's no surprise we've all landed back on the rope theme again for spring 2020. This summertime-appropriate design was present in the spring 2020 runway collections of Ulla Johnson (pictured above), Givenchy, and Valentino. Style these handbags with your favorite espadrilles and maxi dress on vacation.
