The hobo bag is back! Yes, I am serious! I know, I know, for the past few years I have been telling you that hobo bags are coming back; but seriously, they are finally here! This is an important handbag trend for 2021, and well into the next few years.

Hobo bags slowly began to re-emerge as a handbag trend a few years ago when designers began to take inspiration from the 1990s. Everyone in the 1990s owned a black hobo bag; big or small. As the new millennium came in, hobos bags continued for a few more years, even presenting themselves as extremely oversized. Watch out for that on the runways in the next couple seasons. But I digress. . .

Last year, we started with the Coach Swinger, a classic from the 1990s, and the new Prada Cleo. These structured hobo bags offered a retro vibe, and took us back to the end of the grunge era when minimalism was king, and hobo bags rested upon our shoulders.

Fast forward to 2021, and designers are giving us classic and chic renditions of the hobo bag. These modern hobo bags could easily have been pulled from the archives of designers in the ’90’s. They are chic, simple, and timeless. Love!

If you still have your favorite hobo bag from 20-30 years ago, pull it out of the back of your closet and rock it! If not, it’s time to invest in a new bag! There are small hobos, micro hobos, medium hobos, and large hobos. Pick the size that works for your life. You can also be like me, and invest in more than one! Why not? This is a classic style you can wear even when it’s not on the runway.

As you know, I love the Coach Swinger and the Prada Cleo, but I do have my eyes on a slouchier style too. One can never own enough handbags I always say!

Which type of hobo do you like? Are you a structured hobo fan? Do you prefer a soft and slouchy hobo? Are you like me, and want both?

Thanks for stopping by, and happy hobo shopping!

There are so many fabulous IT bags under $500 this summer 2021 season! It is so nice to know we don’t have to break the bank in order to afford a beautiful IT bag which will definitely turn heads this summer season. Love that!

This beautiful straw tote bag is priced just under $500, and it’s an IT bag which is hot this summer season, and has been hot for several years now; it may already qualify for classic IT bag status! It really is a great investment bag!

Also, as you already know, pouches are hotter than hot right now, and these two are priced nicely at under $500. I own the yellow one and love wearing it often. It fits everything I need it to fit while being comfortable to wear; plus it’s super soft. Love that!

Do you see that cute little tan hobo in the collage above? I am in love! This bag is on my wish list. I am in love with it’s east/west, slouchy silhouette, and it’s ’90’s era strap. Plus, the color is on point for the summer season, and early fall. Love!

My spring 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe is a mix of fun and practical. This spring season, I really want to add some cheery style to my everyday looks. This cute little yellow pouch fits into the pouch clutch trend, and adds a fun pop of color to a casual outfit. Love that!

Natural fibers and texture are also huge this spring season. This small straw tote bag is perfect to fit into that trend and provide a roomy handbag solution for day-to-day activities. I love this little tote!

Classic IT bags, and IT bags from the 1990s are also a huge trend this year. Reach into the back of your closet and pull out your IT bags from ten to twenty-five years ago! They are relevant! My favorite is my Chloe Marcie which is soft, slouchy, and great for daily use. It is hard to photograph with a group, which is why you don’t see it in my group photos.

Since I am still working from home, I don’t really need a tote or large work bag right now. I have stored my totes which will come in handy later this year to use as beach bags, and hopefully travel bags after we all get our vaccines! So for now, I am wearing smaller bags which are great for running errands and daily activities.

Which types of bags are you rocking this spring?
