Autumn/Winter 2022 bag trends

It was back in March when the fashion world introduced us to the autumn/fall/winter fashion trends and bags.

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.

The chain gang! The bag style for AW’20

As you sashay through autumn and right up until the end of March next year, make sure your look is a bag with a chain strap, or at least with a chain embellishments, to rock one of the trending bag styles.  If you’re someone who loves investment bags, this’ll be the season to remove the dust bag from your Stella McCartney Falabella or the classic Chanel flap shoulder bag; lucky you if you have one in tweed as you’ll double down on the season’s trends; chain and check!  However, if you find that chain straps can make a bag unnecessarily heavy, it’s time to give them a second go as there are lots of new designs to consider.  Here’s my top buy chain bags for you…and your shoulders.
