5 standout bags at Milan Fashion Week


Forecasting the next season’s IT-bags is a challenge; it involves hunting for common designs in new collections, searching for trends on Instagram and making guesses as to what will actually catch on. However, there is an alternative: you can just look out for what street style trends models and celebs carry during fashion weeks.

Milan Fashion Week Spring 2020 wrapped up recently and from shoulder bags to mini buckets and giant purses, the runways have got all your bag needs sorted. So take your pick from these 5 must-have handbag trends for the next season.


Handheld Purses



Some standout bags are far too special to simply sling over your shoulder; they’re meant to be held close. They are also a great option if you are a more-is-more kind of a person who needs space in their bag. Hold these supersize purses closer, however the style doesn’t shy away from occupying a bit of hip support in order to carry it around.


Fanny Packs



Everyone loves handbags that offer function and convenience at the same time and the belt-bag is ultimate in this category. The hands free approach triumphs all other styles and now it is turning into a wardrobe staple. What started as a cool kid look has now transformed into chic and sophisticated fashion. You can tie it as a belt over your waist or carry it as a crossbody carrier.

Geometrical Shapes




Square and rectangular bags are common, but fashion connoisseurs believe that it’s time to think out of the box, literally. Bags are also shape shifting; now we have circles, triangles, trapezes and cylindrical shapes en vogue. These look like art pieces and help elevate any understated look.


Crossbody Bags Revamped



A crossbody bag is spacious enough to hold everyday essentials, but small enough not to take up too much room. How often can you say that for a bag? It is a trend that fuses menswear and womenswear, with its practicality and effortlessness. When it comes to styling, recent fashion weeks hinted opting for brighter tones or bold prints thus adding an extra layer of chic style to your outfit.


Retro Structure



The structured top-handle trend reminds us about the 60s style. With its boxier shape and exquisite neat grip, the vintage silhouette has been re-imagined and introduced with a few twist to cater to fashionistas of 2019, who look for statement bags to stand out as accent pieces. This one is perfect for working women as it looks sharp and powerful.
