Handbags are the epitome of chic accessories that can instantly change the look of any outfit. Regardless of the wardrobe, high-quality women’s designer handbags can immediately upgrade your ensemble. All it takes are a few strategic bag selections to amplify your look.
Even if you have a maximalist or minimalist closet, on-trend handbags add a touch of modernity and can easily keep you up to date. Here are the top seven trends in designer bags for women for 2024 to consider adding to your collection.
Roomy bucket bags will be a big trend in 2024 as more people embrace functional styles that can be used every day. Instead of a standard satchel, opt for a practical bucket bag that comes in many sizes and colors. Wear it either crossbody or on the shoulder for truly easy hands-free carrying or choose a micro bucket bag and hold it in your hand or crook of the arm for a chic evening look.
Handbags with studs are a classic yet on-trend way to add a little edge to any outfit without looking overdone. Functionality will be a big trend in 2024, and studded bags can easily go from day to night regardless of your style and are an easy way to quickly elevate any look. Whether you select a micro studded handbag for evening, or a large, studded shoulder bag for daytime use, this hardware trend is both modern yet has stood the test of time.
Patterns will be everywhere in 2024, and graphic iconography will be utilized in luxury handbags. Repeated patterns that either take over the entire bag or are strategically placed on focused parts of the handbag, can elevate any simple outfit. If you’re usually shy when it comes to wearing patterns, try a smaller graphic handbag before graduating to larger pieces such as totes or shoulder bags.
We’ve been seeing metallics all over fashion for the last few years. If you’re ready to try the trend without committing to statement clothing pieces, choose a metallic handbag instead. Wear a neutral-colored or monochromatic outfit, then add a metallic handbag for an unexpected touch. Bonus points if the metallic bag you choose is also adorned with crystals for an extra statement.
Whether it’s fringe, sequins, embroidery, crystals, all-metal handles, unique shapes, or any other intricate detailing, embellished handbags will be a major designer bag trend. The easiest way to wear such a statement-making handbag is to use it for a night out or a special occasion. But if you want to get more use out of it, choose to pair an embellished handbag with jeans and a crisp white button-down shirt, or a simple all-black outfit.
Crescent handbags are a timeless shape but have been making a resurgence over the last year in updated styles and designs and will continue trending in 2024. If you want to add a little ‘90s nostalgia to your look without feeling over the top, a crescent bag is an easy addition to your collection. Crescent handbags are also ideal if you prefer to carry shoulder bags or have your bag sit close to your body.
Quilted handbags are a mainstay style, but 2024 will modernize this classic pattern using pops of bright colors, fresh materials, chains, studs, and varying sizes of quilting. If you choose a quilted bag, let your creativity come out as the modern quilt handbag pulls different details and trends together for a fun yet chic style.
There are many luxury handbag trends to watch out for in 2024 that can easily fit into your collection. Despite your current wardrobe and fashion taste, choosing an on-trend handbag will instantly and easily enhance your look.
