As January’s pay packet has arrived, I’m finding a few friends asking “What bag for spring and summer should they be on the look out for this year?” Well I’ve written 3 articles so far on what SS’20 bag styles that will be popping up (scroll to the end for links); from what bags are showing up on instagram, what styles were featured on the SS’20 catwalks, as well as a round up on the key fashion trends. Now that the New Year sales are pretty much finished. you can start to see the refreshing spring bag trends on the shelves and in the searches on shopping websites. So where should you head to…
To save you time, here are the latest bags or new entries for 2020 and you can rely on me; this is a list to suit all budgets. This list isn’t influenced by kickbacks from the retailers – this site is commission free and therefore totally unbiased.
