Classic, duffle-style satchels are hot this year, and chances are, you have one hiding in the back of your closet! Whether you call it a satchel, a small duffle bag, a small weekender, or a doctor bag, this roomy handbag is a great everyday choice for carrying around everything you might need in a day. Love that!

Designers and brands such as Coach, Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Khaite, and more, showed these roomy satchels on their runways for the spring 2024 season. You can choose a structured style such as the Givenchy Antigona, or a softer style from Khaite. The type of fabrication you choose will be both classic and timely for the spring season; just don’t pick the logo fabric, that’s not really “in” right now.

The good thing about this so-called trend, is that it is also a timeless handbag style which you can feel good about investing in for the spring season and beyond. While there are plenty of trendy colors, especially pastels, available for spring 2024, if you are looking for longevity, I would recommend a neutral hue or black. This handbag style will take you well past the spring season and become a staple in your wardrobe for many years. I have had my Givenchy Antigona for close to a decade and I still reach for it often.

Chain bags for spring 2024

Don’t you love it when a classic style is hot on the streets? I do! The classic chain handbag, popularized by Chanel’s famous classic flap shoulder bag and 2.55 shoulder bag, is hot by any designer right now. While the anonymous handbag is hotter than hot, the chain bag is right there along side it.

Chain shoulder bags for spring 2024 should be as classic as possible. Steer clear of logo fabric bags and stick to smooth, exotic, or quilted leather. You want your chain bag to be timeless, and an investment for your overall wardrobe. You can choose a seasonal pastel, which will work every spring season for years to come, or go for a black or neutral hue you can wear all year long. It’s up to you and what you need in your handbag wardrobe. Love that!

If you have a collection of Chanel bags with chain straps, you’re good! If not, there are several designer, mid-range, and affordable chain bags on the market you can choose from. Personally, I love the ones by YSL, Jimmy Choo, Marc Jacobs, Coach, and Tory Burch. They are chic and timeless.

Also, if you are jumping on the TikTok “Mob Wife Aesthetic” trend, chain bags are perfect with your faux fur coat and large hoop earrings to complete this look.

Here are a few fabulous chain bags from around the web you can shop online:

What do you think of the chain bag for spring? Are you a devoted fan of the look? Or will you continue to resist one of the most classic handbag styles of all time?

Designer or Deal casual tote

affordable version the row margaux

This beautiful, soft tote bag from The Row is hotter than hot right now. The catch? It is really expensive! If you don’t mind the price, go for it. The Row Margaux is a beautiful, investment handbag which can be worn for a lifetime. But, if the price is a bit of a shock, there is a similar version in suede which is priced under $1000. Love that!

While the suede version looks floppier in the photos, keep in mind the handbag from The Row is soft leather which gets floppy after being worn for awhile, so they are more apples to apples than the photos suggest.

Which one do you prefer? Designer or deal?

Thanks for stopping by!
