There are so many fabulous handbags under $1000 for the spring 2024 season, it is unnecessary to spend thousands of dollars on a handbag; unless of course you are absolutely in love with it and know you will get a lot of use out of it, but I digress. . .

The spring 2024 is still all about the anonymous handbag. The ultimate IT bag is a bag no one knows, unless of course, they know! haha

Handbags right now are all about high quality, expert craftsmanship, and no loud logos. Think, investment handbags!

While fun colors are hot for spring, neutrals and black are also hot right now. A fun color can be an investment just as much as a neutral or black handbag. When shopping for a color, look for a hue you love and can picture yourself wearing every spring/summer season. Don’t buy a color because you think it is trendy, buy a shade you love and will cherish for years. That will make a colorful handbag a true investment.

So, without further ado, here are a few fabulous handbags from around the web priced under $1000 and investment worthy. Love!

I hope you find your forever bag under $1000!

Spring is in the air! This means the spring 2024 handbag trends are in the air too, and on the streets; and hopefully on your arm! Love this!

The spring season is all about lighter hues, investment dressing, and easy, breezy styles. Your outfits should not be fussy, and your handbags should be equally effortless. So, if you have been collecting investment bags over the years, you are in luck! If not, then this is the time to start your investments.

Spring 2024 is all about the anonymous handbag, and classic styles. If you have been keeping your Chanel bags in boxes in the back of your closet, pull them out! The chain bag is back with a vengeance; not that it ever went out of style, but you get my drift. So, check out this list, pull from your archives, keep what you wore last year, and invest in what you know you will love for years to come.

Chain Bags: The chain strap shoulder bag never went out of style, but it definitely is having a starlight moment. Pull out your chain bags from the back of your closet if you stored them, and rock them on a daily basis. If you don’t own a chain bag, here are a few in various price ranges which are both classic and fabulous. Love!

Hobo Bags: The hobo bag is still going strong. You can wear soft hobos, structured hobos, large hobos, small, hobos, and everything in between. It’s all about the hobo!

The Anonymous Handbag: Keep on storing your logos, they will return eventually. In the meantime, this is the moment for timeless beauty made from high quality materials, expert craftsmanship, and chic style. People who don’t know, will need to ask. Those who know, will know!

Happy Colors: If you are bored of neutrals and black, this is the season to have a little fun with color. Look for happy colors such as green, yellow, blue and pink. A classic style, with anonymous branding and a fun color will be the perfect pairing to your spring ensembles. I’m a yellow handbag fan myself. Love!

Small totes: The small tote continues to be a favorite handbag style on the streets. It is small in stature yet offers a roomy interior for its size. Plus, small totes are easy to get in and out of while going through a busy day. I recommend one with a zipper for safety on public transportation and in busy areas. My go-to is pictured above. Love it!

Satchels: This classic handbag style is hot in every imaginable version. You can go structured and doctor-bag-like, or soft and slouchy. Also, this includes top handle bags you cannot define, as well as Lady Bags. A satchel with a shoulder strap is the ideal workhorse. As always, I am huge fan of the Givenchy Antigona, but there will be more affordable styles hitting store shelves soon. So, stay tuned if you don’t already have the perfect one!

Here are a few of my favorite, on trend handbags for spring 2024 which also happen to be classic styles you can wear well past spring and 2024.

What is your favorite spring 2024 handbag trend? Stay tuned for more spring coverage, I am just getting started!

Trends for fall 2024 from NYFW

New York Fashion Week was quiet this season, as many designers opted for more creative ways to showcase their fall/winter 2024/25 collections instead of traditional runways. In addition, NYFW’s behind-the-scenes organizers, such as the CFDA and IMG have removed the covid-era live-streams from the majority of designer shows and brought back the exclusive, you-had-to-be-there vibe.

In addition, fashion week has taken a backseat on social media since the covid-era, making it a quiet event in the background. As someone in the press, I continue to follow the shows from home, instead of trekking across the country and attending in-person as I did a decade ago and pre-covid. I have to admit, covering the shows, and seeing what is coming in for the next season is rather enjoyable from the comfort of my office as opposed to braving the snow, flying across the country, and worrying about my daily outfits. It will be interesting to see, as social media evolves, if fashion week eventually turns back into the event it morphed into from 2016-2020, or will it stay in its pre-influencer, exclusive bubble. I guess only time will tell. In the meantime, let’s talk fall 2024 trends from New York Fashion Week!

First off, speaking of non-traditional runways, how fabulous is this photo from Leanne Marshalls fall/winter 2024/25 show? She showcased her fall collection on the ice, and showed how the fabrics can flow, movement, and a lighthearted vibe. It was a return to Bryant Park, NYFW’s old home, and a nod to her fifteen years of fashion since her debut at Project Runway. When I used to attend NYFW in person, I always enjoyed her shows and collections. She is extremely talented, and her designs are always amazing. I love her use of color for fall in this collection. Fabulous!

Now, let’s chat about a few dominant trends from the runways for the fall 2024 season.

  1. Oversize Suiting: Gone are the days of the cropped blazer, the fitted blazer, and the slim trousers. The power suit for fall will offer relaxed fits, and oversize silhouettes. Thankfully, this is a comfortable way to wear a suit.
  2. Metallics: Not really groundbreaking, I mean, it seems like a “trend” every fall season. But, all shades of metal are hot for fall. So keep your silvers, golds, and metals, they will still be relevant in the autumn season.
  3. Feminine Touches: Touches of lace, bow details, flowing skirts, one-inch heels, soft fabrics, and skirts that blow in the wind. There is a return to feminine fabrics and dressing as a whole.
  4. The return of Faux Fur: It was only gone for two seasons. I guess we couldn’t resist! Pull out your faux fur from the back of your closet, this trend is back. Look for faux fur touches on collars, as well as full blown coats and jackets. It’s fuzzy time.
  5. Autumn Hues: Traditional autumn hues are hot again for fall. Think reds, oranges, greens, and yellows.
  6. Chain Bags: This classic handbag style seems to have moved to the front of the handbag pack. Pull out your Chanel bags, or invest in a more affordable version from Tory Burch or Coach. Long live the timeless chain bag!

Well, there you have it. The short list of what’s hot for fall 2024 from the New York Fashion Week runways. Continue to invest in your wardrobe with timeless pieces and save trendier items you love. The pendulum keeps swinging, and what you have stored in the back of your closet will eventually swing back in!
