Think Small! Designer Mini Bags Are The Rage

Forget about your large totes! This spring/summer is all about the designer mini bag – again. Yes, you are not losing it. This trend as been around for a couple of seasons, but now it has taken on life. OK, scratch that. Don’t forget about your large bags, because if you are like me, half of the stuff jammed in your bag is for the kids anyway. However, if you get a moment to yourself (or an evening) the mini bag is the best option.

Even though some of us are buried in snow, spring is not that far off so I’m getting my wardrobe together. One accessory that’s totally on trend for Spring ’17 is the striped handbag. Vertical, horizontal or blocked, it doesn’t matter as long as you carry the “it” print of the season.

Fall Handbag Trend: The Top Handle Bag

OK, you bought your 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli over 7 years ago, right? I did. So you have a top handle bag, but you may need another one. I’m also asked what are the bag trends of the season and while I am obsessed with the guitar strap bag for fall I am also loving the top handle bag. Again.

Look for extra wide, embellished straps. This is going to be the must-have bag of Fall ’16

Bag To Carry Now And Later: The Striped Bag

Who can resist the Jackie O striped Gucci bag? Apparently nobody because the style keeps coming back. I so wish I had not killed my vintage one (via my mother) in the late 90’s. Anyway, the style of the striped bag with its simple yet statement-making vertical center stripes has influenced the design of a considerable amount of bags this upcoming fall which is evidenced below. How to wear the striped bag? I love it with a crisp white menswear inspired shirt to make the bag stand out. Come winter, try a fisherman’s sweater. Pair either top with a pencil skirt or your favorite worn jeans. It will pop beautifully.
