Pretty in pink right now

Up here in the northern hemisphere, I’m seeing more and more pink appearing in the stores for this spring and summer. The good news, is you don’t need to channel your inner Naomi Campell as seen at the Versace S’22 runway show, looking fabulous in a pink trouser suit, to channel your inner fashionista. This much pink up top and below the waistline may not be the preferred choice for everyone. The alternative is to grab a pink bag and still look pretty and on-trend this year. Here’s a quick edit from some cities in Europe where there’s lots of pink bag inspiration for you, with lots more over on insta @thebagwhispers_.

What has the start of this year served up in the fashion feeds on Instagram? Has your feed been full of designers getting ready for the new Chinese lunar year?

SS’22 bag trends for every budget

The spring and summer runways welcomed the return of the shoulder bag. A staple in many wardrobes but it has been overshadowed for a few seasons by its somewhat more boxy and cute cousin, the crossbody bag. Good news, the shoulder bag trends for SS’22 don’t dictate shape or colour as it’s all about matching (not contrasting) your outfit. It’s all very easy, think one colour, minimalist and if you’re missing detail, opt for an accent stitch. You can crack this trend at every budget level. Here are some examples of the shoulder bag trends from under £100 to up to £5000.

Hands up for a preview of the SS’22 designer bag trends

I’m not a fan of sharing an edit of next season’s trends too early; it can be frustrating waiting for new collections to come in or having to preorder without even seeing the bag IRL. But let’s break with tradition because November is a mix of sale events; from Singles’ Day, Black Friday to Cyber Monday. Between now and end of November, plenty of fashion stores will be offering great discounts. And my top tip for sale shopping is to research the future trends, because sometimes you can get a bag that rocks a key shape and colour of the next season and you’ll be able sashay into spring or summer having saved some well-earned cash. So, with a week to go before some big discounts are due to appear, here’s the rundown of the SS’22 bag trends as set by the top fashion designers.
