Most fashionistas would agree that getting a new handbag is like falling in love all over again, bringing an excitement you can’t ignore. Handbags have come a long way, from being a staple statement accessory to becoming a must-have for every closet. We've parsed through the Fall 2022 runway collections to give you an overview of the most noteworthy bag trends. 

Fur Love

Furry handbags, with either trims or all-over designs, are everywhere this season, and while the trend is nothing novel in terms of styling, the trend is ideal for winters and fall. The classic furry handbag offers a warm feeling with a trench coat or even with a regular shearling jacket. If you are someone who doesn’t want to think of fur as a regular choice, we hear you. There are many faux fur designs to choose from. Minimalistic designs that sync with the trend include options from Fend. You can view more here.

Oversized picks

For a lot of corporate girlies, handbags are like an extension of their life to carry everything at once. After a long haul of mini and micro bags, we are back to oversized totes and shoulder bags for fall 2022. But let's be real, oversized bags will never go out of trend, they're the perfect workhorse for all seasons. Bottega Veneta and Brandon Maxwell had some fantastic designs to choose from, and you can even find options that have dedicated space for your laptops and tablets. If there has to be one thing from this list that you need, this is the one!

The slouchy tote

Totes have always been a perfect pick across seasons, and if you are looking for new ideas, go for the slouchy tote, which is basic, easy to carry around, and offers adequate space for your essentials. The slouchy tote also has one more advantage – the handbag itself doesn’t have as much weight, and therefore, you can make it a practical option for everyday use. The Row should be credited for bringing the style back into fashion, although other brands had their takes on the trend.

Fun clutches

If you thought the clutch was only for special occasions, the fall 2022 collections will make you reimagine this. The return of the clutch is here. Bottega Veneta had some amazing clutches this season, including an pillow-esque one, perfect for napping anywhere. Clutches are fun for two reasons – you can carry one and leave right away, and secondly, the style never really goes out of vogue. This is a great trend to work with for those who prefer to step out on the town with minimal baggage.

A quick mention about hardware and handles this season. Designers seem to be obsessed with making the small things about handbags stand out. Find your pick!
