Aren't You Lucky? Spring's 6 Biggest Bag Trends Appeal to Every Type of Girl
It seems like every season, the bag shapes on the runway get more inventive and eye-catching. It was definitely easy to reinvent the wheel for Spring 2018. Designers are offering geometric pouches we like to describe as "insanely cool" (hello, Danse Lente!), but iconic fashion houses are also bringing back the monogram logo, refreshing the most popular emblems in quirky ways, or just leaving them as is for the gals who are big fans of tried-and-true looks that date way, way back. In between, we've got pastel colorways, flashy stripes, and so much more — all of which you can shop at every price point ahead. No matter which bag you choose, you can rest assured you're on trend, but also just wearing what you like.
We've graduated from the basic fanny pack and welcomed functional belt bags you can weave through the loops of your denim. Then there are the delicate, girlie pouches equipped with chains. Strap them around your coat to cinch in and flatter your waist or even swing one over your shoulder. There are countless ways to wear this trend.
