These Are The Handbag Trends You'll Want To Watch Out For This Fall

A fun handbag is a great way to spice up any look. It's essential to have new bags that both fit current trends and complement your outfits. Sure, we love our old faithful, but sometimes it's fun to branch out and try something new. Fall 2022 runways brought forth plenty of new handbag trends, some even playing off of existing trends. Fun colors, textures, and silhouettes lit up the runways and certainly have made a splash in the market as well (via Woman & Home).


The handbag market is always changing, though some classics, like the Hermès Birkin, stay in style. In 2022, the market is looking for brands that showcase great craftsmanship while sticking to luxury trends (via Harper's Bazaar). Whether you're looking for something chic for everyday use or playful for a night on the town, the fall 2022 handbag scene has you covered in both wearability and style.

Denim bags

Hello, early 2000s! With the resurgence of Y2K fashion, denim has made a huge comeback including denim handbags. Think Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake on the red carpet in 2001. Denim is being used to give a casual feel to everyday handbags. Thus, luxury and contemporary brands alike are hopping on the trend. Marc Jacobs has even incorporated woven Italian denim into its latest handbag campaign featuring Bella Hadid (via HNHH).

Doubled up bags

What's better than one bag? Two bags. Necklaces are not the only accessories for layering. Doubled-up bags are handbags with smaller bags attached (via Who What Wear). We have seen this on mini bags such as the Prada Re-Edition 2005, as well as bucket bags like the Balenciaga Le Cagole Bucket Bag. In fact, the traditional Balenciaga Cagole Shoulder Bag is well on its way to cult status, earning the approval of Kim Kardashian. Of course, you can purchase or DIY your own doubled-up bags for much cheaper.

Crescent bags

Thanks to the rise of the Bottega Veneta Jodie, we are now seeing crescent bags from every mainstream designer. A mix between the hobo and shoulder, crescent bags are taking the lead in 2022. Much like the baguette bags were in 2020, these will be a staple in every "it girls" wardrobe. Like baguette bags, they are a vintage style that you can often also find secondhand for a great price if you are an early adopter of this upcoming fall's biggest trend (via Who What Wear).

The large tote bag

Totes are a classic being reimagined this fall. The tote started from humble beginnings. After all, you can still get a basic canvas tote for as low as $5 today, yet it's now also been reimagined for luxury brands and can cost thousands of dollars (via Vox). Not only can they hold everything you could possibly need but they are also a great fashion statement. Different textures and colors make up a mighty collection of totes to choose from. Suede, quilted, and shearling totes are just a few of the fashionable textures that hit fall 2022 runways.

Furry bags

Fur and fuzz always trend in fall and winter. In 2022, you not only can have fuzz on your coat, but you can also have it on your handbag. Even better, many of these furry bags come in bright colors. Many brands are even opting for faux fur and leather on these bags to keep up with the times, which really caught its stride in summer 2022 but will carry on into fall (via Brunette from Wall Street). By Far, Serpui, and Themoire are just a few of the brands getting on the furry bag trend this fall.
