Bags have finally gotten a rock star moment. Guitar strap bags were seen on the Fall ’16 runways of Lanvin, Prada, Valentino, Burberry and Fendi. Now they are being knocked off by more reasonably priced brands like Rebecca Minkoff (which knocks off everything) to Steve Madden (who also knocks off everything).

Good Lord. It is so hard to keep up with all the handbag trends this season, but one that is back in a BIG way is an oldie, but a goodie: the chain link bag. If you already have a Chanel bag you are in luck. If you don’t and can’t quite afford one or want to spend the money, or if you are just looking to add another to your chain posse, there are some phenomenal options at virtually every price point.
If the the thought of spending $3,000+ on a designer bag seems frivolous to you, or simply out of your range, the hot bag trend of the moment is the miniature version of your favorite designer bags. As long as you don’t need to carry a ton of things (it never looks good to have your bag look overstuffed) or just want to use it for evening many of these nano or doll-size versions of popular handbags come in at well under $2,000.
