We see trends come and go, but what we see this year is a nod to the ‘old school’. This year the ‘grandma’ trend is in, and vintage looking pieces, especially bags, are super in. What qualifies an item to be a ‘grandma’ item is hard to describe, but we all know one when we see one and these inspired items have people obsessed. These vintage inspired bags have a retro feel to them, and we have already seen these trends on the runways, on social media, and those who are fashion-forward. They are available now from luxury brands to the high street.
Here are a few retro bags that are trending right now:
Every fashion-forward girl has a shoulder baguette bag, as they have a retro shape, naturally playing into the vintage trend. If you’re new to the trend, a classic neutral color will make it so you get the most wear out of your bag and be able to pair it with more in your wardrobe. Or if you want to play with color and material, pick a bag in your favorite color and perhaps try an animal texture. If you want to wrap two trends into one, go for a shoulder baguette that plays with asymmetry as well. You can find all of these options online, for example on websites like Mirta that sells Italian leather shoulder bags handmade by authentic Italian artisans. Could you fit a baguette inside? You can give it a try for fun!
Beaded bags are cute and a way you can show a little extra personality with a handbag. They come in all different sizes, but the most common ones right now are the mini beaded tote bags and crossbody bags. The crystal-clear beaded bag is one of the most popular choices in terms of color, though you can also find designs such as tropical fruit, stripes, flowers, and small wooden beads. So choose your favorite design and show your personality with the beaded bag you choose!
Teeny tiny bags
The tiny bag is now the teeny tiny bag this season. The Jacquemus Le Petit Chiquito is arguably the bag that started the tiny bag trend, and now you can find options of colors, sizes and details. If you want to make a statement, opt for an animal print, standout detail or pop of color for your teeny tiny bag. Just remember that while fashionable, they are not always practical unless you are ok with just bringing your iPhone out with you. Otherwise they are great for going out with your ID and lipstick!
These pieces give major 90s vibes, a trend that we have been seeing quite a bit of in the past year and we will probably continue to see in the second part of 2020.
