It’s that time of year again when the weather toys with us and gives one day of summer, one day of winter, and one day in-between. When those peek-at-summer days happen, we all start looking at what we have ready in our closets for summer. One of the big, on-trend items we all need is a straw bag.

The straw bag for summer 2022 is a great summer staple because it evokes vacation vibes, offers neutral hues to match any outfit, and is specific to summer or exotic trips. Love a good basket bag!

As straw bags have increased in popularity the past few years, designers have been getting more creative, and they are giving us more options to choose from. For the summer 2022 season, we can find a basket bag in almost any style we want; and I love it! I own the Loewe tote bag featured in this post, and it is a classic style that Loewe releases every spring/summer. I love having a classic bag I can pull out every summer. If you want a classic straw bag, I highly recommend it!

On trend IT bags on your mind? The drawstring bag is hot this year, and there are a few fabulous options. I linked up the two IT versions of the style in the collage above. If you are attending an event, or you want to rock the straw trend on a night out on the town, this box bag and this clutch, both under $100, are ideal.

Spring 2022 street sneakers are here! For the spring 2022 season, street sneakers are back, and this season, they are more individual, special, and downright funky.

Gone are the days of the simple white sneaker, or the understated street sneaker. For the spring 2022 season, we are looking at bright colors, mixed colors, avant-garde designs, platforms, and unique sneakers other people are not wearing. Instead of season-long styles we can think about for a couple of months and then purchase, many sneaker brands, such as Nike and adidas, are releasing limited inventory which sells out within seconds of being released. While this is nothing new in the sneaker world, it has gone mainstream for spring 2022, everyone wants sneakers other people don’t have.

Of course, with scarcity, comes… well, scarcity! If you cannot get your hands on a pair of limited-edition sneakers, you will reach for the next best thing, which is what is on trend. The hottest trends in sneakers for spring 2022 are the platform. If you already invested in the Gucci platforms, you’re golden! If not, the converse platforms are also hot this season. Seriously, they might be the IT sneaker of the season, and they happen to be affordable. Love that!

The black pair featured above, is the current IT sneaker of the season. My daughter is rocking them on an almost-daily basis, in addition to her Nike Dunks, which were of course, limited edition. That’s what’s hot!

I am loving my Gucci platforms and switching things up with the funky Nike’s pictured above. In addition, I love a classic boat shoe with shorts on warmer days. This is a good sneaker wardrobe for the spring season, and also moving into the summer. I recommend investing in one platform shoe, one funky pair which could be limited edition if you can snag a pair of Dunk’s, Air Jordan’s, or Air Force One’s, and also a classic pair of boat shoes or canvas sneakers you can pair with shorts on warmer days.

Spring is here! This means we all need to make sure we have the hottest handbags front and center in our closets. Luckily, a lot of the spring 2022 handbag trends might already be in our closets, and we just need to move them forward. Love that!

There are five hot spring 2022 handbag trends to covet this warm weather season, and hopefully you already own a handbag in at least one category. So, without further ado, here are the five hottest handbag trends for the spring 2022 season.

  1. The Small Square Tote: Small, square totes are hotter than hot this season. They offer a square silhouette, small size, and often will be found with an alternate cross body strap to make day-to-day life easy. You can snap an investment version from Dior, or you can find a more affordable version from Coach. Either way, you will look fabulous.
  2. The Small Top Handle Bag: Thankfully you don’t have to go micro-mini or nano in this trend, unless you really want to. You can rock the small top handle bag trend, or Lady Bag trend, with a small bag which still fits your wallet and phone. These handbags also tend to come with a cross body strap, making them easy to wear everyday. Love!
  3. The Hobo Bag: This trend started last year, and it is continuing into 2022. You can rock it with a structured version, or a soft version. There are also moon shaped bags and shoulder bags which offer a hobo look. If you haven’t already found your hobo bag for 2022, there is one out there for you.
  4. The Bucket Bag: This trend was hot a few years ago, and it’s back! You can go with a traditional cinch bucket such as the classic one pictured above, or one fashioned after a flower pot silhouette, or cylinder. You will find a lot of versions of the bucket on store shelves. Pick the one that speaks to you. Or, you can be like me and stick with the classic that has been hot since 2014. Your choice.
  5. The Pouch: Lastly, let’s talk about the pouch. This handbag style has been popular for a few years now. I own a few in different sizes as well as one with a funky chain strap. This is a great style to wear casual or dressy. If you own a pouch, keep rocking it! If you have been eyeing this trend for awhile, snap one up now.

Well, there you have it! The five hottest spring 2022 handbag trends to wear now. Which trend is your favorite?
