The fashion trends for the start of the New Year have already hit the runway, and we want you looking good as you look ahead to spring! Taking cues from Harpers Bazaar and Cosmo’s fashion guides, we’ve compiled a list of our top picks of luxury handbags to complete or evoke the looks carrying on from last season and into the new--looks that will keep you on trend now AND have the staying power to transition to whatever the fashion world serves up next.
Leather Springs Forward
We weren’t surprised to see leather in the spotlight this fall and winter, but it’s showing up in less expected places as this trend lasts into this spring—showing up in bright colors. Bust out your leather best with one of these bright Prada Saffiano Lux totes.
The Punched Up Trench
Another perennial trend being reinvented as it sticks around center stage is the trench coat. Cosmo highlights the “statement trench” having its moment on the runway. These are not the neutral staples content to blend in—these are bold, blocky, and sometimes incorporating unexpected colors or patterns. They remind us of the Gucci Soho patent leather shoulder bag, which goes beyond its quiet coloring with shine and shape.
We’re also huge fans of this Louis Vuitton Arch, which definitely makes a big statement while using classic colors and lines.
Neon On and On
We wouldn’t have predicted this extended neon energy, but it’s definitely here. Use this opportunity to splash it up with the Louis Vuitton/Stephen Sprouse collab graffiti in a limited edition Neverfull.
If there’s neon elsewhere in your wardrobe, this Prada Studded City Lights Elektra is almost certain to complement the look.
The Long and Short of Bermuda
Bermuda shorts are also sticking around a while longer, and we’re seeing them styled in a couple of ways. The first capitalizes on the spacious, vacation vibe of the garment, which we would pair with a Louis Vuitton Travel Patch Neverfull for obvious reasons.
But these roomy shorts are also being paired with blazers “like a boss.” For that feel, we love the structured yet wavy style of the Louis Vuitton New Wave Chain Tote.
Soon we’ll have the scoop on the new looks on the scene, too. Stay tuned!
