Handbags are perhaps a vital accessory of any ensemble — practically and aesthetically — regardless of the taste or style preferences. We've already had a preview of what's upcoming in fashion next season, thanks to the spring 2022 runway.
Like the return of box totes or some quirky additions like mini handbags, cushion clutches, and saddle handbags, we spent the past few days scrolling through our Instagram feeds to discover some top-notch collections. Whether it is structured shoulder bags for a boss-girl look or larger-than-life totes that will hold the gym essentials you need, this list has something for every woman.
Step into Summer with your brand-new sidekick, a.k.a. the hottest bag of the season.
1. Baguette Swipe Leather Shoulder Bag

2. Bucket Bag
One for the bucket list this year is indeed the bucket bag. The classic silhouette made several appearances on the runway, and it's as practical as it is chic. Despite the compact appearance, most bucket bags are spacious inside, making them the perfect day-to-night bags.

4. Phone Bags
This season, designers have found a happy medium with phone bags—aka, a bag that fits a little more than your cell phone. Whether you're out running errands, walking the dog, or window shopping, these made-for-tech accessories allow you to go hands-free without sacrificing style. And unlike tiny bags, they fit your phone.
