A/W 2021 Bag Trends

No matter your personal taste or style preferences, handbags are arguably the most important part of every look, both functionally and aesthetically. Common textures like suede and leather are always safe bets, but 2021’s fall handbag trends include some surprisingly fun picks in the mix as well. Feline patterns like leopard and cheetah print are big players this year with some of the heaviest hitters in handbags, like Louis Vuitton and Dior, churning out feisty renditions of some of their most recognizable silhouettes. And then there’s the newest member of the club: the phone bag, which, you guessed it, holds little more than your trusty iPhone.

Here are some of the Autumn/ Winter bags trending this year …

First Monogram Bag, When you think of monogram handbags, luxury names like Louis Vuitton, Dior, Gucci, and Fendi probably first come to mind. After all they’ve been leading the pack on the logomania craze for decades now. As of late, these labels are releasing new buzzy styles splashed with their signature logos. The fashion world is hooked on Dior’s Book Tote this is seen everywhere and brands like Primark and many others are making bags so similar but obviously cheaper. Another must-have among the style crowd Fendi’s Baguette 1997 bag because clearly, it’s no secret the world is obsessed with the ’90s. Additionally the early ’00s seem to be making a comeback.

Secondly Shoulder bags, Chances are your wardrobe is jam-packed with shoulder bags and with good reason. Whether you’re headed out to grab an iced coffee or you’re in for a late night out on the town with friends, the silhouette is perfect when all you need is your wallet, AirPods, and phone Luckily, no matter your personal fashion taste, there are tons of fresh styles in the new arrivals sections of retailers. They come in many different styles and patterns and sizes so you won’t be running out of choice.

Thirdly Phone bags, Micro-handbag trends like Jacquemus’s Le Chiquito have made us rethink our typical oversized shoulder bags. This season designers have found a happy medium with phone bags, a bag that fits nothing than your phone. Whether you’re out running errands, walking the dog, or window shopping, and unlike true mini bags, they actually fit your phone.

Fourthly Fluffy bags, want a cosy cut bag then definitely this is the way to go score snuggly pieces with signature details, like the homage silhouette of a Fendi baguette in monogram sheepskin fur. Or for a cheaper version then head to shops like Zara, which have good quality and good price bags.
