It’s no secret that we spend a lot of time on Instagram, but while scrolling through our feed this week, we noticed something that we had never noticed before; style bloggers all seem to have the same two bags. As we started searching through some of our favorite bloggers and industry friends, we realized that almost every page we went to featured either a Valentino Lock Shoulder Bag or Saint Laurent Monogramme Shoulder Bag, if not both.
The fashion industry has hosted a logo renaissance over the past few season, with brands like Alexander Wang and DKNY plastering their logos all over clothes, much to the pleasure of streetwear-obsessed fashion customers. When it comes to accessories, though, the trend has been a bit different.
A new season always brings with it lots of new choices, but Fall 2014 feels particularly full of brand-spanking-new handbag options from some of the biggest accessories labels in the world. Now that all the dust has settled and these designs have arrived in stores, we combed through the collections to find those that are most worthy of your new handbag dollars.
Fall is upon us, and we love covering the seasonal trends as we see them arise. Amanda already shared 20 burgundy bags to start your fall wardrobe, and today I’m revisiting the subject.
Burgundy bags can be found in almost every designer’s handbag selection for fall, and it doesn’t take much wondering to figure out why.
Burgundy may be the perfect fall color; it’s rich, versatile and basically a neutral, but it’s not quite as obvious a choice as an actual neutral. Black, grey, tan, navy–burgundy looks flawless with all of them, and depending on the undertones of the particular shade, it can read as anything from a particularly warm brown to just a shade off aubergine.
Mini bags have been making waves in the handbag world for a while now, and I hope you love the trend, because it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. After the short-lived trend for massive, overly heavy, totally unwieldy oversized bags, the trend pendulum swung toward minis, and all of our arms and shoulders rejoiced.
Whether you’re a Coachella die-hard or a casual concertgoer, one thing we can all agree on is that there’s nothing worse than having to fuss around with your bag when all you want to do is dance. While crossbody bags and backpacks leave your hands free for taking pictures and enjoying an ice cold beer, they can sometimes get in the way of your ridiculously good dance moves.
