If you're in the market for a new handbag (or just want to spend the next five minutes looking at some beautiful accessories), then you're going to like the trends that are set to be huge in six months' time. It might only be December, but as fashion editors, we are paid to look forward to the next big things. So, we're about to introduce you to the handbags that you'll be on first-name terms with in 2018. From pretty ice cream–coloured mini bags to Loewe's patchwork beauty, handbags are one of the things we're most excited about for next spring. Keep scrolling to see our guide to the six big handbag trends that you'll see everywhere come spring.
Jonathan Anderson always creates a buzz with his handbags at both J.W. Anderson and Loewe, and his leather woven bag for Loewe is set to be just as loved as the brand's iconic Puzzle bag.
You can pre-order this beauty now on Moda Operandi.
For spring, bags are supersized again, reminiscent of the Olsens' Venti handbags from the aughties. The key bag we are lusting after here is Gucci's doctor-style handbag above.
This spring, one of the biggest changes in handbags is with colours, rather than form, and tan bags are poised to replace your black totes. Victoria Beckham tapped into this trend (as shown above), along with a number of others, including Staud, Wandler and Chloé.
Speaking of colour, pastel handbags are also having a moment for spring. Come March, we reckon you'll be craving ever-so-pretty mini bags in ice cream colours, like the Adeam bag above.
The aughties have been making a comeback for several seasons now, and in spring, it's time for retro logo handbags to explode. The likes of Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner have already been wearing these nostalgic logo bags from Fendi, Dior and Gucci.
