As you know, spring 2022 is all about smaller handbags, and lots of colors! In addition to small and colorful, we are looking at handbag styles for spring 2022 which can be found in many of our closets. The hottest handbag trends for spring 2022 include the bucket, the small tote, top handle bags, the continuation of the pouch and the hobo handbag.

Since I was a huge bucket bag fan seven to eight years ago when the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag reached its insane IT bag status, I knew I had this trend in my closet to shop. While spring 2022 is bringing us new versions of the bucket bag, I prefer to stick with the classic that I already own. I decided for spring 2022, I would pull my pink bucket bag out of the back of my closet. I have found myself reaching for it often already! It’s so easy to wear and has fabulous interior capacity. Plus, the light pink hue freshens up a foggy day and adds a touch of spring to my overall look; even in my workout cloths. haha Mansur Gavriel has a lot of really pretty colors in stock for spring, just in case you didn’t invest in one the first time around. You can see them all here.

The small tote bag is a great returning trend too. I had this blue tote bag in the back of my closet, and it’s still in stores! I love how small tote bags give the illusion of being a small handbag but are actually quite roomy inside. The cross body strap on most small totes comes in handy too. Love that!

This fabulous yellow tote was from Coach’s spring 2022 runway. They released a small batch right during New York Fashion Week, but plan to release more very soon. I will keep you updated for their in-stock return! In the meantime, they do have larger versions of this classic tote online. I love the neutral hues and the green.

The hobo bag and the pouch are continuing to be hot in 2022. So, if you already invested in these two styles, keep wearing them! If you don’t have a hobo yet, you can still invest in one, they will stick around awhile. Love!

Well, since there are two types of handbags I am loving right now; I had to split them into two photos by type! The top photo is my hobo bag capsule wardrobe, and the bottom is my pouch bag capsule. These are the two handbag styles I am loving to wear this winter season.

The handbag trends we will see this winter 2022 season will include hobo bags, pouch bags, small totes, bucket bags, and micro-mini bags; and as we move into warmer weather in the spring season, we will see more straw bags-just like last year! So, for right now, in the winter season, I am rocking the hobo bag trend, and the pouch bag trend. Love them!

Structured and slouchy hobos are everything right now. So, I have a mix of both styles, as well as differing colors. I hope to add an ivory hobo to my collection soon. I also have a mix of pouch bags for both casual and dressier occasions. I love having different colors and sizes, it helps mix it up. I love the pouch bag trend, it’s fun!

Handbag capsule wardrobe holidays 2021

Can you believe the holiday season has begun? This year has flown by! In order to be ready for the holiday season, I have assembled my holiday capsule wardrobe. My holidays 2021 capsule wardrobe pulls from both fall and winter trends, with a festive vibe. Of course, I always love starting with my handbag capsule for any given season. I mean, you love handbags as much as I do, right? Of course!

So, without further ado, here is my holidays 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe!

This holiday season, my handbag capsule wardrobe concentrates on my three favorite handbag trends. The pouch, the structured hobo, and the mini bag. Mini bags are ideal holiday bags since they are petite and perfect for the party season. It’s a great way to rock the mini bag trend since, at least for me, they are too small for frequent daily wear. Love that!

Pouch bags holidays 2021

Ah, the fabulous pouch bag. This is an IT bag trend I never thought would have lasting power. A large and slouchy daytime clutch? No way! Well, yes way! I resisted the trend at first, then when I indulged in this black pouch bag, I fell in love. These bags are actually comfortable to carry around, and they are a great way to spice up a casual look. Pouch bags are also the perfect day-into-evening bag since they fit everything we need during the day, yet turn into a classic evening bag. Love that!

This holiday season, I am continuing to wear my beloved black pouch bag, and this fun, fabulous chain pouch. I love wearing both these bags, and I look forward to pairing them with my holidays looks. If you haven’t invested in a pouch yet, what are you waiting for? This trend is proving to be long lasting, and surprisingly practical!

Structured hobos holidays 2021

I love my structured hobos! This is the practical handbag trend we have been waiting for! It took close to two decades to return to the handbag world, and it was worth the wait. We loved these bags in the 1990s, and we love them now too! These structured hobos are comfortable, fit everything we all need during the day, and fit snugly under our arms. They look chic and put-together. Love that!

Since many brands and designers are still showing structured hobos for 2022, and they are coming out with their own versions, as well as new versions as we speak, this trend looks like it has some staying power. I highly recommend investing in at least one.

These two structured hobos will work well with my holiday capsule wardrobe. They are both classic neutral hues, and perfect for pairing with casual looks, as well as dressier holiday outfits. Love!

Small bags holidays 2021

Small and mini bags are ideal for the holiday season. They can turn any denim or dressy look into a festive party outfit. Since sparkling jewelry is hot this holiday season, I like to keep my bags understated so that they don’t compete with with a pair of sparkling earrings or armful of bangles. Plus, these two classic bags can be worn during the day with casual looks, and they will also be relevant well into 2022. These are investment bags, not sparkling evening bags which collect dust in your closet the rest of the year. I’m all about investment dressing!
