This is important information.
I work in fashion, so my friends (and strangers I meet at parties) are constantly asking: “What trends should I know about?” And I always have an answer. After all, I’ve prepped for this. I skim retailers’ trend reports, keep a pulse on what went down on the runways, and peruse shopping websites for the latest product drops. (My wish lists are never-ending.) Though I can toss out new clothing trends in my sleep—for a refresh on those for 2020, here you go—there’s more to the story. Aside from the ready-to-wear trends, there are the must-have jewelry, shoes, and bag trends to consider.
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 gotten 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.
Quilted bags of all sizes and colors ran the gamut on the runways, from Alexander McQueen (pictured above) and Burberry to A.W.A.K.E. Mode. This classic style lends an air of sophistication to any crossbody or tote bag you choose for the 2020 season. Like most things in fashion, what is old eventually becomes new again, and quilted accessories will have its moment this year. Whether you end up choosing one from the likes of Chanel (Coco Chanel first created her quilted leather 2.55 handbag in 1955!), which is a timeless choice, or from other more contemporary designers out there, this style is sure to last you a lifetime.
