Ladies and gentlemen, I want to go shopping. To be honest, I almost always feel itchy, but I don’t necessarily always allow myself to scratch. That said, this time I’m scratching a storm – and using all of the hottest bag trends of 2022 as a metaphorical back scratcher. They do the job!
OK, let’s drop the whole itch metaphor and get down to business. I really don’t need a new handbag right now, but I’m looking to spice up my wardrobe and can’t afford a brand new one. When you’re in a similar situation, let the accessories be your savior. A few new pieces can transform your current staples when styled correctly!
So what are the top 2022 bag trends to keep in mind? Lately, it was flexible silhouettes, but the tide is turning and the structure is there. Box bags and classic, more rigid shapes are certainly in the mix, but often made in softer leathers which still allow a little more to give. Let’s take it slow, don’t we?
Of course, all of your favorite brands have slime-worthy bags on the market right now, from STAUD and Coach to celebrity favorites like JW Pei (EmRata is obsessed) and even sleeper hits like Charles & Keith (my new go -to).
Below, read on for all the bags I discuss impulse buying. You have been warned!

Agnes Street Zip-Top Grab Multiway
Radley London is my current benchmark for affordable leather – and QVC has chic styles on sale, so I’m even more eager to buy. I’m stuck between this trendy red box bag and another more practical black style, both under $ 200.
Tabby Soft Shoulder Bag
I have a feeling that the Pillow Tabby will be available by 2022, but the Coach bags and the general silhouette of the Tabby will still be relevant. This version reads much more timeless and practical, without sacrificing that same trendy look.
Tommy Bag with Pearls Bordeaux Argyle
Oh, do you want a beaded statement bag? Look no further than STAUD’s Tommy bags, available in a range of designs. The Gossip Girl the lover in me wants to wear this argyle preppy instead of a Constance Billard school uniform.
Small T-Monogram Coated Canvas Tote
A good tote is almost impossible to find, at least so far. This pick from Tory Burch checks all my boxes: durable coated canvas, multiple strap options, and of course, a trendy shade. Sold.
Single chain shoulder bag
Charles & Keith has become one of my latest favorites for everything from shoes to handbags, and I love the unique push closures. I also like that there is a chunky shoulder strap that you can attach in addition to the pretty gold chain.
Lou shoulder bag
Guys, I’m crazy about all the new Rebecca Minkoff bags. Can you believe ?! This little red bag feels like an absolute must before heading into the holiday season. Don’t blame me for arguing about buying it green either.
The small tote bag
Adding another tote to the list for good measure, I’ve been watching Marc Jacobs’ one for some time. It’s available in tons of different fabrics and in multiple sizes, but the classic little canvas is as practical as it gets. Moreover, you can get it with Prime 2 Day Shipping.
With green reigning as the It hue of the moment, this pretty top-handle bag from SINBONO is a must-have. There are a ton of different colors if you prefer neutrals, but I plan on getting shiny.
In terms of what I really need – a classic black everyday bag – this new silhouette from JW Pei fits the bill perfectly. I love the big gold hardware accents and the slightly angled shape. It’s all about the details, guys!
Quilted leather bag with chain handles
Last but never the least, a bag that I will certainly buy impulsively on my next unnecessary run at Zara. I can attest that they’ve nailed some handbags this season, and this antique gold chain and bright blue faux leather combo is one of their best.
