Hobo handbags for spring 2017 are an emerging trend which is not getting enough press! The hobo has been a quiet, emerging trend over the past few seasons which we noticed splashed all over the fall 2017 runways in New York last month. While those were fall runways, hobo handbags had already graced the spring 2017 runways back in September; so this trend is positioning itself to unseat the current satchel trend, shoulder bag trend, and mini bag trend.

Last month in New York, designers favored soft and slouchy handbags; many of which were hobo handbags. The hobo is a casual closet staple, although, it has not enjoyed it’s place in handbag society over the past decade. For spring 2017, designers are including at least one hobo handbag style in their warm weather line-up, this makes the hobo handbag a fabulous up-and-coming bag to invest in now.

Most of us have already invested in fabulous satchels over the past few years. The shoulder bag, or saddle bag trend, is a classic style which most have us already have in our closets. In addition, we seem to all have at least one mini bag. While mini bags are a hot trend, they have held this position for a few years now. The mini bag cannot last forever. It will eventually fall victim to the IT bag style curse of being “so last season.” If you want to invest your dollars wisely in a casual, everyday handbag, the hobo is your best best.

For investment purposes this season, satchels and shoulder bags are good bets to have staying power over the next few years. If you want to invest in something at the beginning of the bell curve, look for a soft and slouchy hobo handbag for spring 2017.

I love hobo handbags! There is something luxurious about a soft and slouchy hobo. In addition to a scrumptious hobo, a structured hobo has it’s place in every woman’s closet too. The structured hobo handbag is easy to wear casually, at the office, and out to dinner; while the slouchy hobo is more of a weekend bag. The hobo handbag at the top of my wish list is this beauty online here. For a structured hobo handbag, I have my eyes on this one in blush.
