It is time for celebrations, and we’re ready to end the year with a bang, or bag! But before you buy one, take a look at the biggest bag trends that had everybody hooked in 2019. This year, it wasn’t about price or luxury — but the shape, materials and size, speaking more about what women want, and also making a statement that fashion rules no longer apply. From high fashion brands to runway collections, they have spearheaded the bag trends right from beaded bags to the good old baguettes for everyone who likes all things classic to those who enjoy the present trends.

Here are the five styles we spotted everywhere, and which you too should consider adding to your collection.

Belt bags

They say comfort scores over fashion and mind you, belt bags top that category. While we always have a desire for handbags that offer convenience, it essentially started out as a cool street style look that was later elevated for a sophisticated audience. Moving from a youthful vibe to practical handbags which are chic, the belt bag got way cooler in 2019. If you don’t have one, it’s time to make place for it in your wardrobe as it’s more refined than ever.

Miniature bags

This year, while iPhones got bigger, sneakers got chunkier, and earrings got wider, handbags got smaller. When  Jacquemus, introduced the famous ‘Le Chiquito’ bag in his Fall 2017 Ready-to-Wear collection, there were only two models holding tiny bags. And yet, they made an gigantic impression. The trend set the fashion industry on fire. And while belt bags to an extent did focus on functionality, clearly this trend didn’t go on the same lines. Rather, the high price tag and air of exclusivity were its main features. So tiny (small is an understatement), the bag was declared “ridiculous,” with claims like it could only fit just a pair of earrings or a single Air Pod. But not all were haters and it shows.

Baguette

Carrie Bradshaw and Fendi’s Baguette bag — name us a more iconic duo. Shooting to fame with its appearance on Sex And The City, the baguette made a major comeback in 2019. Also, at the same time giving us a major throwback when jeans were low-slung and crop-tops were in plentiful supply, it was the must-have accessory for every teen in the early 90s. The baguette is indeed a fun style, super playful yet feminine and certainly an understated elegance that goes easily with a broad range of looks. Take a look at how it took 2019 by storm.

Beaded bags

The bag market this year was flooded with more choices, will no longer burn a hole in your pocket or edgy, atleast in style. Proof of this shift can be seen in the beaded bag takeover that began last spring and carried over into 2019 and became bigger than ever. Undoubtedly, it’s the perfect accessory to elevate a casual jeans and t-shirt look or to make a statement on a night out. Walking around with a bag made up of jewels sounds a bit extra, but most of these outfit add-ons are generally unassuming and easy to wear. It doesn’t end here, they’ll remind you of your childhood while also making every outfit slightly more sweet (especially if it has cherries on it).

Bucket bags

If you do not know what a bucket bag is, allow us to simplify it — the Indian potli took 2019 by storm. The bucket bag’s popularity remained strong with chic modifications to the same. While it shares a similar pleasing understanding of its predecessor, the bucket is nothing but an oversized bag with more baggage just as your utilitarian self prefers to carry around and its structure is more refined than ever. Take a look at these cutesy bags.
