Can you believe we are close to halfway through 2021? Where does the time go? Since we are almost at the halfway point, I thought this would be a good time to talk about the hottest selling IT bags of 2021 from January 1, 2021, until May 21, 2021. (Those are the dates evaluated as of writing this post) Knowing what’s hot, helps us plan our IT bag purchases for the summer and fall seasons!

While we can speculate about which bags will be hot before a season begins, we really never have the data to back things up until the season has passed. That being said, knowing what sold well, and what hit the streets, in a recent season, tells us what to expect for the upcoming season.

During the winter and spring seasons of 2021, handbag fans hit the streets with both classic IT bags, and new IT bags. The top selling IT bag of the year, thus far, is a classic! The Chloe Marcie has proved, once again, that casual and classic are what makes an IT bag sell well; and enjoy longevity. After all, the Marcie has been around for years! If you don’t already own one, what are you waiting for? This bag sells the most in the original, double top handle style; but the cross body version is also a hit on the streets, as it comes in at the number four spot. You can check out my review of my Chloe Marcie here.

The Givenchy Antigona Soft is proving to be a hit this year! It comes in at number two as a top selling IT bag of 2021 so far. This beautiful bag sells well in all size variations, so if you are looking for a daily bag, or a larger travel tote, this is “IT” for 2021! I can see this bag having longevity. It is practical and beautiful. Love that!

The pouch clutch is a hot street style staple in 2021, and Mansur Gavriel’s Cloud is the perfect mix of affordability and IT bag designer recognition. This beautiful clutch is priced well under $1000; which is rare for an IT bag! It’s also sturdy construction, and can be easily dressed up or down. While Bottega Veneta’s version might end up on more wish lists, Mansur Gavriel’s version ends up in more closets. It’s hot on the streets! It’s worth mentioning the mini version of Mansur Gavriel’s Cloud clutch came in at number six. The mini version offers a strap which can be worn over the shoulder, cross body, or tucked in. Love that!

Lastly, the Loewe Basket Bag has been around for a few years, but it is proving to be a classic summer staple on the streets. This cute little straw tote comes in at just under $500 which makes it an affordable IT bag. It’s a great bag for beach days, summer vacations, or just looking summery on a daily basis. I love it paired with espadrilles!

Handbag trends 2021

handbag trends 2021

2021 is here! This means a whole new set of handbag trends to follow, covet, and wear. In past years, we have looked for the next great shape, designer, and IT bag. This year, things are moving a little bit into the past; as well as the classic realm.

The new year is all about classic IT bags, revisited IT bags, IT brands, and a few fun bags. Sound like a lot? It is. There is a lot going on in the handbag world this year! So, make sure you’re sitting down, this will be a lot of information!

IT Designers: This year, if you think seeking the ultimate IT bag is too confusing, just stick with the IT brands of the year. You can pretty much wear anything by these designers and brands; and you will be rocking an IT bag. Look for anything Bottega Veneta, Cult Gaia, Prada, Givenchy, Chloe, Loewe, and Mansur Gavriel.

Colors: Fashion is revisiting color blocking; a huge trend roughly a decade ago. Look for bags in fun and mood-uplifting colors. Also look for the color of the year yellow, as well as grey. You can still wear classic black, but adding some color might be just the right mood-up-lifter after last year. Metallics are also making a comeback, so if you want to sparkle and shine, this is your year!

Fabrications: Leather and faux leather are still important. In fact, technology has really moved faux leather forward in such a way that it can be really hard to tell it apart from real leather. Look for faux leather pieces to help reduce your carbon footprint. Also, straw, raffia, anything woven, and stamped croc are huge in 2021.

Silhouettes: The new year is all about classic silhouettes and retro vibes. Look for the baguette with 1990s inspiration, the return of the hobo bag, oversized and gigantic bags you could fit the kitchen sink into, fan shaped totes, netted bags, half circles, and the pouch clutch.

Specific IT bags: Looking for an exact IT bag to rock this year? Some of these might already be in your closet! Look for classic IT bags such as the Chanel 2.55, Louis Vuitton Neverful, Givenchy Antigona, Mansur Gavriel bucket bag, Chloe Marcie, and Fendi Baguette. Want to buy new? Look for the new Prada Cleo-it’s so hot, it’s already sold out. Old IT bags which are back include the Coach Swinger, Gucci Jackie, and Bottega Veneta Jodie; perhaps you have one in your closet. Additionally, new IT bags (which started to emerge in 2020) include the Bottega Veneta Cassette Bag, Bottega Veneta Pouch, Givenchy Antigona Soft, and the Chloe Darryl Saddle Bag.

Whew! Well, there you have it! It’s a lot of information. Be sure to check out your closet because you might have a few of these styles already stored in the back! If not, be sure to snap up a classic IT bag or two for the new year. Which style is your favorite?
