These 5 Handbag Trends Are Coming in Hot

Straight from the fashion month runways, we’re breaking down the best handbag styles for spring.

Altuzarra Spring 2023

Bags were definitely never out, but we went a long time (read: the entirety of 2020 and a lot of 2021) without really needing them. And while lounging around at home had its perks, we missed topping off our ensembles with cute purses, totes, and clutches. Enough is enough! We’re embracing bags again—whether it’s for a quick run to grab coffee or a full day at the office. Thankfully, all the newest designs we’ll be seeing this spring are can’t-miss options.

We’re seeing purses of all shapes and sizes—from little bb ones to extra-large totes and everything in between. So whether you need a party-ready purse to hold the basics while you’re out or you’re looking for something more heavy duty, there’s a style in here that’ll inspire you to make an addition (or several) to your accessory collection.

From sophisticated to slouchy, there are multiple trends we will be seeing in Spring 2023 bags, and we plan to give you a glimpse at many of them. Some bags might be considered classic, or you might say they never went out of fashion, but we promise you they will be even more popular in just a few years!

The latest fashion bags range from shimmering, big bag shapes to baguettes, metallic and boxy bags. See the spring 2023’s must-try bag trends ahead.


If there’s one spring 2023 handbag trend that will surely never go out of style, it’s the baguette bag. With its signature snug under-the-shoulder carry and flap closure, you can’t go wrong with the shape made iconic by Fendi. For this Spring of 2023, luxury fashion houses looked back into their archives to re-issue classic styles, such as Fendi, JW Anderson, Ganni, Staud, and many more. This small, compact handbag, which became an icon when fashion company Fendi founded it in 1997, was also popularised on Sex and the City in the late 1990s and early 2000s. This bag is often cited as the first bag.

Whether you’re an avid frequenter of the farmer’s market or not, consider investing in the luxury iteration of the practical market bag next spring. The unstructured silhouette, with two handles or a single long shoulder strap, will work just as well for your daily commute to the office as for a quick trip to the grocery store. This season, big bags are still trendy and very much there in all designers’ Spring 2023 collections like The Row, Michael Kors, Altuzarra, Tommy Hilfiger, Luar, Proenza Schouler, Marni, Altuzarra, and more. Somedays, all you need to carry along with that good mood is a comfy bag to carry around, and these kinds of big ones are a perfect choice!

The always-classic boxy bags are back this season! It’s cool to be square, at least that’s the message being served on fashion’s buzziest runways including Luar and Rejina Pyo. The box bags for Spring 2023 are classic yet fresh, following modern shapes, vibrant colour blocking, cool cut-outs, and more.

Carolina Herrera

Metallic bags will be the most wearable trend of the season. These kinds of bags fit in perfectly for any evening event, and they also look wonderfully fresh during the day.

This season, most designers nailed it, and there are many great silvers and golds to pick from.

This season’s #1 trend in bags is clearly the stylish kind. Designers like Proenza Schouler, Carolina Herrera, and Khaite added clutch bags in their latest spring 2023 collections. Small, chic, and classy… everything you need in a one-only bag.
