8 Best Handbag Trends of Summer 2017


Issue Date 05 - 11 Aug, 2017 at 2:00 PM

A new season calls for a new handbag but with seemingly endless options on offer, deciding which one to add to your already swelling collection can be a task in itself. Not this time though, because we have rounded up the best handbag trends of this season for you.

The mini bag
A trend that’s been going strong for a few seasons now, the mini bag is here to stay. A teeny-tiny bag is perfect for all your everyday essentials. These bags usually come with a long strap, allowing them to be carried crossbody, making them the perfect handbag for your girls’ night out or you can carry one without the strap for a more formal party. It could be a miniature leather purse with chain strap or a Valentino tiny bag made of delicate material.

Chains
Bags with a chain handle detail add a bit of glitz to your everyday attire. The chain trends from last year are still going strong this year. Whether as part of the strap, or as an adornment, chains walked down the runway in many prominent shows. The chain straps come in brass and gunmetal shades, and contrast interestingly with the more classy leather and suede styles of the body of the bags.

Box shaped bag
Solid shaped bags are the best ones! Box handbags have an avant-garde ingenuity. These bags combine utility with beauty. Made of solid metal, these bags are outrageous due to their print. The tiny ones are cuteness overload and the medium sized ones remind us of high fashion lunch boxes.
Fringe and tassels
Bags with Tassel attachments hanging on to them are definitely something to look out for this summer. The tassels can perfectly blend with the suede material or even studded with some metal giving it a more ‘girl-in-the-hood’ look. Fringe and tassels make for fun, eye-catching accessories for festivals and city street alike.

Large bag
Oversized bags are still chic and sophisticated. A large duffle bag is your go-to bag for vacations or day excavations and easy hobos are slouchy laid back bags that can fit all of your essentials. Many brands have released large bags with striking symmetrical prints and exotic flowers that set the right mood for this season.

The basket bag
Making their mark back in the 70s, basket bags are back this summer. You can opt for a hand-held basket, a cross-body style or an oversized tote made with straw. This style will look just as good on a seaside holiday as it will on a summer brunch. Either they are round, square or hexagonal, these cute bags are all over the place this season.

Metallic
Finding a bag that will go with pretty much anything in your wardrobe is a difficult task but metallics will do the deed for you this summer. Once considered a dangerous choice, shades of gunmetal, silver and gold have become a fashion staple of modern girl garb. Whichever shade you go for, this is a trend that gives you instant style points. A metallic bag has a unique, modern look that is difficult to ignore.

Bucket bag with drawstring
The bucket bag returns on our must-have list, this time with a drawstring detail – the more strings, the better. This season bags are meant to be daytime essentials without looking too expensive or formal. The drawstring design is certainly on the casual side and has a certain world traveller charm. The bag can be made of either delicate fabric or a drapery leather and can either have prints or be plain.
