Have you been carrying around the same boring bag you’ve had for years?
It’s easy to overlook your purse. So many people just get one classic leather bag in brown or black and wear it year round.
Instead of sticking with one purse that matches with everything, get one that stands out!
In 2019, playful colors, shapes, and fabrics are taking over the runway. Have some fun and indulge in the trends.
Sure, bags are expensive. But, you don’t have to buy the designer brands straight off the runway. Get an inexpensive version that mimics these high fashion trends from stores like Forever 21 or H&M.
That way you can have a different bag to go with all sorts of looks.
Your outfit isn’t complete until you have just the right purse picked out. Here’s our top picks for new purse trends for 2019.
1. Furry Fabrics
Furry bags were a fun and silly trend from the ’90s. Now the look isn’t just for Cher in Clueless.
You can elevate the trend by getting a faux fur bag in a subdued color like black or brown. Or just take it to the limit and rock a pastel like they did on the Chanel runway. To rock this trend, you definitely have to have a sense of humor and whimsy when it comes to fashion.
2. Bucket Bags
2019 is all about playing with unexpected shapes. Bucket bags have been seen all over the runway from Chloe to Louis Vuitton.
The trend started to emerge in 2018, but now it’s really picking up steam. There’s the traditional bucket style that’s a little less structured. Generally, the bottom has the bucket shape and then the fabric is gathered at the top.
But now, designers are going more literal. In their 2019 Resort Collection, Hermes debuted some chic bags that have a distinct bucket shape with a flat top.
3. Duffle Bags
Don’t go fishing through your closet for your high school track team gym bag. This trend is more about using the shape of a mini-duffle bag. Instead of a slouchy fabric, the shape is more structured in leather.
Calvin Klein, Versace, and other designers were showing some of these bags in their Spring 2019 shows.
4. Belt Bags
Okay, a “belt bag” might just be a high fashion way of saying fanny pack. But this trend isn’t just for middle-aged moms anymore.
However, it also might not be for everyone. But if you can pull it off, you’ll enjoy the fashion and function of the belt bag.
You can wear it around your waist as the design intends or throw it over your shoulder like a regular purse.
The athleisure look is really in right now. Pair a belt bag with a matching Adidas two-piece tracksuit.
The see-through bag might not be the most practical bag in the world, but it’s been popping up all over the runways.
Obviously, this trend isn’t for people who can’t keep their purse clean. No one wants to see your crumbled receipts and dusty gum wrappers. Although, maybe getting a clear purse will motivate you to get organized!
6. Box Shapes
A box-shaped purse can bring some uniqueness to a basic black or brown leather bag. Runways have been showing bags that are structured and boxy.
You might see these bags with a tiny handle that mimics the look of a briefcase. This shape also works with a crossbody strap as well.
If you want to have even more fun with this trend, try a takeout box purse. Yes, they’re shaped like literal food takeout boxes. One relatively affordable but super hip brand that designs these is Pop and Suki.
They come in all sorts of colors and patterns. You can even have your name monogrammed on it if you order it online.
If you dig through your mom’s basement you might be able to find one of her crocheted purses from the ’60s. These bohemian bags are making a big comeback in 2019.
These bags can be slouchy and made from the standard material like yarn. They can also have a more structured look when woven with straw. That gives it a look similar to wicker.
In darker colors, you can wear these for the remaining winter months. But in lighter colors, these are the perfect bags to bring to an outdoor concert.
8. Big Totes
Big totes are huge right now which is great news for gals on the go. Leave your computer bag at home and just put your laptop in your purse! You’ll still have plenty of room left over for your lipstick or even your whole makeup bag.
The totes popping up on runways have been both structured and slouchy. Versace debuted a bag that capitalized on both the big tote and see-through bag trend.
Other brands like Alex Chung and Self-Portrait have been creating patterned, nylon totes. You can use them as your purse or as the chicest grocery bags the supermarket has ever seen.
9. Neon Greens and Silvers
There were no two colors more represented on the Spring 2019 runways than neon green and silver.
These colors were used in duffles, box bags, furry fabrics, and more.
Neon green might be a hard color for everyone to pull off. But silver is a color that anyone can make work. It’s a neutral color, with a little more pizazz than black.
Silver will go with lots of outfits in your wardrobe. Plus, you can make it work for any season, so you can rock it year round.
