Clutched To Our Sides

This season is all about coordinating looks, as the must-have item of 2020, hug-and-tuck this ‘it’ accessory from the daytime beach to evening street. Opt for an unconventional statement wristlet, woven piece, or adorable straw silhouette as your new clutch. Worth the following, this oversized pouch brings back our fave style of the 2000s.

Supersize Me

More than a shopping tote or overnight bag but equally dramatic, the XL handbag will definitely be replacing our teeny-tiny bags as a runway favorite of 2020. From elongated straps, colorful pastel tones, woven crochets, fringe hemlines, structured silhouettes, and weekends, totes are turning our utilitarian item into a fashion movement. Designers such as Jacquemus, Prabal Gurung, and 3.1 Philip Lim have proven that bigger is better.

Pouch Bag 2.0

Another iconic style of 2020, we noticed both vintage and upscale designs of this handbag. Clean, minimalistic, untraditional the pouch bag style has become an everyday bag for style and comfort. Update your graphic nylon drawstring pouch bag for these options to wear as a backpack, top handle, or shoulder bag. A clear beachy twist of your coin purse, this catchall is perfect as you head to the beach for brighter days.

Brighter is Better

Not only is bigger better, but the brighter the better, too! Color is the new attention grabber of spring. Certified street-chic, this little addition of color when paired with any basic, is sure to turn heads. Inject some color into your life, no matter the hue, this colorful trend goes with just about anything.

The New Bucket Bag

Throw it in the bag, as this handbag has returned to the runway proving itself as a trend here to stay. Crafted from raffia to straw baskets, the bucket bag is a practical style that has taken on many inventive and minimalist designs. Its functionality in size and silhouette will never let your necessities be overlooked again.
