Year after year, we got accustomed to seeing the runways full of excessive materials and accessories. Don’t get me wrong, I have always found them fabulous, and I was eager to see what the summer of 2018 was preparing for us. My biggest surprise was to discover that this year, designers had something else in mind. If I am to describe the biggest bag trends of summer 2018 in one word, I will go for moderation. Of course, nothing was boring, all the elements were simple and blended well together. I saw a lot of leather, snakeskin and different fabrics that brought another dimension to the pieces. The colors were fun and soft. Yes, there were also some pieces with prints and various accessories to make them stand out. If you want to know who stood out from the crowd the most, keep on reading.
- Hobo fashion handbags
Hobo bags have always been the most comfortable and stylish handbags out there in my opinion. This year, they have been designed in a triangular shape, giving them a more edgy look. What I love about them is that they are very versatile when it comes to matching with your outfits. You can wear them with jeans and a top and even with a dress. For school or the office, hobo bags are a total fashion winner.
- Pillow bags
If you are the type of person who travels a lot and sometimes you use your bag as a pillow, you will love this one. Some designer handbags I’ve seen this season were made of plush with some feather decorations in the shape of a pillow. I found them very luxurious looking and quite comfy. I need to grab one of these as soon as possible.
- Punk bags
Well, a few studs here and there didn’t hurt anyone, right? The runaways were filled this season with a variety of fashion handbags, backpacks, and purses elegantly decorated with metallic elements for that little extra any woman needs from time to time. No matter the shape and size of the bags, they all looked great and gave me a serious punk vibe.
- Stylish handbags with floral prints
No surprise here, floral prints have been in for years, and they are here to stay a little bit longer. All you hopeless romantics out there, I think you will be happy to know that floral prints are one of the biggest bag trends of summer 2018 that designers can’t get enough of.
- Box bags
Box bags are another favorite of mine when it comes to designer handbags. There is something magical about them. They may seem unusual, but they can make any outfit stand out. Shaped as a gift box with a bow or a lunch box, box bags are ready to conquer the world of fashion.
Well, these examples stood out to me the most in the handbag department for the summer of 2018, and I have already spotted them on some wholesale handbags sites, and I can’t wait to get them. I am curious to know what your favorites from the biggest bag trends of summer 2018 list were or if there were some incredible pieces I’ve missed. I can’t wait to read your opinions.
