The bag trends to invest in this spring

 

Well hello spring, we've been expecting you. Now that temperatures are well and truly on the up, we can finally embrace spring’s latest looks (without also breaking out in goosebumps, that is), and there's one fashion item that we’re adding to our wardrobes imminently: handbags. This season’s styles are particularly alluring and we’ve identified the ones that are going to have a big impact throughout the rest of the year - from chic tote bags to luxe-look quilted styles, these are the spring/summer 2020 bag trends we can't wait to get our hands on this season.

Living it large



Micro handbag trends are great and all, but if you're the kind of person who carries their life in their bag from dawn to dusk, you need a sidekick that doesn't mess around. You’re in luck - the roomy tote bag trend is on the upswing for summer, with the likes of Bottega Veneta, Loewe and Fendi all supersizing their bags. Not only are they back, they’re supersized enough to accommodate the woman that wants to take everything with her – and we mean everything. If the parachute-sized bags of the runway are a little OTT for your morning commute, a sizeable tote will do the trick.

Summer tan 


During the summer months, a classic black bag can be too harsh against your pastels and summer whites but it’s quietly cool caramel-coloured counterpart is here to help. Tan handbags always look sophisticated, and the simpler, plainer styles will not only look classy, but they'll also be timeless, too—meaning you get more bang for whatever buck you've put down. From slouchy sling-like iterations at Zimmerman to fortune cookie creations at Altuzarra to barrel bags at Rejina Pyo, it’s clear that the spring 2020 runways are of the same opinion – tan bags will be big news this year. All we need now is an actual summer tan to match.

No quaint quilt


A bag we can rest our head on even if we can’t show it off to its full potential right now seems like a good idea to us. While It seems like every fashion girl has recently been snapped toting around a quilted bag (just look to Rosie Huntington-Whitely and ?? for evidence), but we saw them descend onto the catwalks first - Tibi debuted classic-looking chain strap, stitched leather iterations while the quilted bags at Bottega Veneta were extra plush. Black and cream are, of course, a fail-safe option to add to your accessories line-up, while statement shades such as rich reds and fresh pinks will invigorate your everyday outfits.

Carry the rainbow


No summer would be complete without a pop of bright colour. Bold and beautiful hues like flame scarlet, orange peel and classic blue (Pantone’s colour of the year) may be having their moment in the ready-to-wear stakes, but accessories are following suit. The likes of sun-bleached lemon totes at Bottega Veneta, quilted lilac cross-bodys at Max Mara and ?? Chanel bags on the spring runways are enough to inspire even the most colour phobic souls to dip a toe into this seasons rainbow pool. Start with a minimal base of neaurals – a crisp white shirt or racer style tank top - and your colourful arm candy will make even more of a statement. Whether you prefer pastels, earthy tones or punchier shades – just put the black back

Keanu Reeves


The internet went crazy for Keanu Reeves as the face of Saint Laurent AW19, and similarly at the Oscars this year with his mum. Over the years he has demonstrated great style. From muddy brown blazers to sharp suits, he sticks to a neutral colour palette and knows the power of black. His style is slouchy but not sloppy. He often wears varieties on one look – which looks, well, impeccably good.

To emulate his style, learn what works for you and stick with it. For Reeves, it’s a blazer, jeans and boots combination. For you, it may be something different. But also remember to have fun. With the fourth Matrix film coming out next year, maybe Reeves will throw full-on leather into the mix soon. You never know.
