Let’s be real: Nothing is a more universal conversation starter than, “Where’d you get that bag?” These upcoming winter bag trends make for the best ice breakers, no matter the temperature. There’s a trend for you regardless of your aesthetic, whether you’re a wannabe coastal grandmother or more Euphoria-friendly. What makes bags fun is that you don’t have to choose—you can carry a different bag, and thus a different vibe every day of the week. This winter, there are plenty to choose from.
We all feel a little wonky sometimes, and so do these bags. Take the Hermès Kelly Disorder, introduced on the brand’s FW22 runway, for example. Perfectly imperfect, they’re a great way to add a twist to your winter wardrobe.
Between the broccoli bag carried at Collina Strada’s SS23 show and JW Anderson’s FW22 pigeon clutch, the It bag for the upcoming few seasons is all about the object. If you want to eat your vegetables rather than carry them though, try out these bags for the same effect.
Match your puffer coat this winter with an equally puffy bag. Go big with a Stand tote or small with a color-blocked Kate Spade.
For those of us who consider animal print a neutral, this is a pretty safe trend. If you’re not of that mindset, a cute zebra or cow print bag is a perfect transition to cool girl winter.
There are soft, pretty bags, and then there are bags with some edge. These are bags whose structures and hinges aren’t meant to be hidden, but to take the main stage.
Nothing says luxe winter like expensive velvet. These aren’t bags you bring to be spilled on at a club—you bring them to tea club (Zero Bond, Soho House, you name it).
If you need to touch the grass, but all the grass is dead and covered in snow this winter, at least you can find comfort in these touch-and-feel bags. They might not be the real thing—but hey, you won’t have to water them.
The Y2K renaissance is as strong as ever, so why not have a bag to match? Only this time, update your glitter with a sleek new Fendi (who of course invented the “It bag”) and reinvent your rhinestones with the help of The Attico for sparkle that won’t fade away.
What could you possibly need to carry around in a bag this winter, ten dollars? That’s about all that will fit in these ultra mini bags, but this is a fashion story, not a self-help article.
Julia Fox invented denim, or at least that’s what social media would have you believe. You don’t have to sew your own jeans together to get in on the trend—these brands have you covered.
