Balenciaga-Papier-Zip-Around-Belt-Bag

Every few years, designers try to give belt bags (often known in the US by their more pedestrian name: fanny packs) their day in the sun, usually to limited-at-best success. These pushes usually coincide with a general trend toward 70s neo-bohemian fashion, and since that’s what we’re in the middle of right now, there are suddenly a lot of belt bags available.

Gucci-Mini-Interlocking-Shoulder-Bag

Mini bag haters, shield your eyes. As fall arrivals come in left and right, designers have somehow found even more bags to shrink down, including a bunch that had somehow escaped the mini treatment in the past.

Whether you think of them as scourge or savior, bucket bags are back for another season of dominance in the accessories market. More brands than every are throwing their hat in the ring for this popular style, so if you can’t get your hands on the Mansur Gavriel version, don’t fret–there are lots of options at every price point imaginable.

Saint-Laurent-Toy-Sac-de-Jour-Bag

If you’ve been among the bag lovers bemoaning the trend for tiny, nearly non-functional micro bags, I have some bad news for you: we are nowhere near the end of this trend, and probably won’t be for another year.

Jerom-Dreyfuss-Nestor-Saddle-Bag

The fashion industry has decided the 70s are A Thing again whether we like it or not, and although tan suede and flared jeans are not my particular cup of tea, the era’s aesthetic resurgence has brought about at least one good thing: the return of the saddle bag.

Vince-Camuto-Lorin-Drawstring-Bag

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the bucket bag is a bonafide thing, and it’s not going anywhere soon. Although the simple, casual bags have their detractors, Mansur Gavriel’s ultra-minimal, perpetually sold-out spin on the shape helped usher them back to popularity among fashion people.

Fendi-Peekaboo-Small-Embellished-Tote

No one would describe me as a maximalist. I carry a Mansur Gavriel bucket bag almost every day, which is almost the same as wearing a sandwich board instructing people to ask me about my love for minimalism.

Fringe Bags Spring 2015

I’m constantly checking new arrivals on my favorite shopping sites and recently noticed a big influx of fringe fashion pieces, handbags and beyond. Fringe is making a big statement for Spring 2015, but something about it feels so familiar.
