The designer handbag trends 2024 are stunning but I’ve also included luxe for less versions that are more friendly on the credit card. As well as quiet luxury bag brands to embrace the stealth wealth fashion aesthetic and buzzword of the year!

It’s not just clothing that’s got the high shine, glam update this year but handbag trends 2024 have got the sparkly treatment as well. If metallic bags were the bag trend last year, this year it’s all about crystals, sparkly sequins and gold.

Embellished and sparkly bags are one of my favorite handbag trends for 2024 and one of the most popular handbag trends for 2024. It’s definitely my personal style and the more sparkly and glam the better.

From designer handbag trends 2024 to luxe for less styles these are the best purses to nail the embellished handbag trend for 2024. The Balenciaga hourglass bag might be the most stunning designer handbag trend of 2024 bag but there’s lots of more affordable luxe for less versions around. The one I have (above) is under $100.

2. 2024 handbag color trend – Go Gold

Gold was big last year and it’s still in style for 2024. It came down the Spring Summer 2024 runways in all iterations from gold wrist watch bag straps to gold chains and bracelets as seen at Valentino. The only problem now is choosing just 1!

If you’re not a fan of gold, other handbag color trends for 2024 include pink, red especially for Fall/Winter 2024, metallics and if you’re doing quiet luxury, neutrals will always be in style.

Shoulder bags have been everywhere at fashion shows for the last few years and are set to stay in style for 2024. Feminine shoulder bags in compact sizes were seen at so many of the 2024 fashion shows. Although it doesn’t matter with this 2024 bag trend if they’re slouchy or structured, boxy or round. Logo or non -logo are also both in style.

As seen at Gucci, Alaïa and The Row. Bonus points for creating a monochromatic look with is as seen at Balmain and Hermès or going for details like gold handles as seen at Bally.

4. Trending bags | Size up with oversized Bags

This bag trend is still going for 2024 and I’m thankful for it as my bags always seem to be bulging. The oversized bag trends for 2024 are both structured and unstructured as seen at The Row, Ferragamo, Prada, Miu Miu and Balenciaga 2024 runway shows. 

After years of impractical micro bags, the large bag trend is one trend I can get behind for daily life and everyday use that means no more overstuffed bag.

Whether it’s an oversized bag tucked under your arm or a shoulder bag, this practical bag trend can stick around as long as it wants to. Which is why it’ll probably continue to be one of the most popular handbag trends for 2024. If you don’t want to splash on a designer bag, check out this luxe for less leather tote by Radley London.

Faux croc bags add texture and warmth to your outfits and you don’t have to worry about them getting scratched like you do lambskin. It’s another ladylike bag style which is one of the biggest trends this year. Think high shine faux croc clutches and shoulder bags. As seen at Ferragamo, Jil Sander, Mansur Gavriel and Demellier.

6. Classic Style Top Handle Bags

Top handle bags will always be a classic but this year they’re a trend again and one of the most popular handbags for 2024. They came in all sizes on the 2024 runways from Miu Miu to Louis Vuitton but it’s duffle shaped bags we’re seeing the most in recent seasons.

If you’re unsure what style of bag to invest in and want to splurge, classic top handles will always be in style and are one of the designer handbag trends of 2024 worth splurging on.

Envelope clutches are back in style for 2024. As seen at Max Mara, Tom Ford and Chloé SS24. Think more business and daytime such as Bottega Veneta’s woven leather version or Drie Van Noten’s denim envelope bag and less evening glam sequin iterations. 

Structured, solid box clutches with and without chains in black, gold, red, white and green were seen at Proenza Schouler, Carolina Herrera, Michael Kors and Khaite. 

8. Ethical and sustainable bags and brands

Ethical and sustainable brands are becoming more and more sought after and some of the most popular handbags for 2024. So although this isn’t a specific handbag trend for 2024, it is a trending way of shopping. Some of the best purses for 2024 just happen to be vegan and brands like Stella McCartney and Public Goods are great for finding sustainable and vegan leather alternatives.

If you’re fed up of losing everything in your purse, this handbag trend is for you. Handbag trends for 2024 include bags with lots of pockets and compartments. As seen at Fendi, Simone Rocha, Ferragamo and 3.1 Phillip Lim SS2024. Whether sleek or more cargo style, it’s great for those of us forever losing our keys. 

Bucket bags in all sizes and held however you want. From nano to XXL the bucket bag was seen everywhere from Loewe to Miu Miu and Toteme. Although my favorite might be the Valentino Mini VLOGO Leather Drawstring Bag in ivory.

Whether it’s neutral tones or something colorful, they make the cutest addition to your 2024 wardrobe.

11. Re-Edition bags

It makes sense with Y2K and 90’s styles being in style that bags like the Prada Re-edition 1995 are in. Last year it was bowling ball bags in all sizes, leather hobos, Prada Re-Edition 2005 shoulder bags, 90’s bags like the Lady Dior and Balenciaga’s City bag. For 2024 it looks like Prada could be having a moment with not just their triangle bag but their structured re-edition 1995 handbag.

12. Fringe handbag trend 2024

Are fringe bags still in style? Yes! Fringe bags were everywhere at Versace, Dries Van Noten and Cult Gaia. From shorter length to floor grazing styles. For practicality maybe stick to the shorter to mid length styles. They’re one of those bags that always make a statement and are perfect for Spring/Summer 2024. So if crystal bags aren’t your thing, you can still bring the drama with a fringe bag.

Vanity cases Another ladylike style for 2024, this is the trending bag for 2024 you’re going to see a lot of. Which means I can get my Chanel vanity shoulder bag out of its dust bag. Other designers with vanity-case inspired designs in their latest collections include Louis Vuitton, Loro Piana, and Jaquemus. Zara has some good options if you don’t want to splurge on a designer bag. Plus you can wear it as a shoulder bag or carry it.

Wicker bags are a summer classic but this year they’re not just reserved for your summer vacation but to use for everyday too.

Which purses are out and which purses are in style 2024

If you’re wondering which styles in your closet to put in their dust bags for this season and which to take out and about this year these are some of the styles that are out and the trending bag styles and purses that are in style for 2024.

Are top handle bags in style 2024?

Yes, absolutely! Some of the best purses that are in style for 2024 are top handle bags. They were at all of the 2024 runway shows from Versace to Chanel to Rokh and influencers like Leonie Hanne and In The Frow are always carrying them. They’re a classic style that never really goes out of fashion but are most definitely in fashion for 2024.

However, if yours has been gathering dust or you were thinking of buying one, now’s the time to bring it back out or go get the one you’ve had your eye on as they’re most definitely in.

What bags are staying on or coming back into rotation in 2024

Since top handles are in those will definitely be staying in rotation. I purchased the pink Versace Medusa bag as soon as it came out in Fall ’21 and am still going to keep wearing it in 2024 along with my top handle medium Lady Dior bag.

I’m also bringing back out my gold studded Christian Louboutin bag that hasn’t seen daylight in a few years since metallics and studs are back in style.

Are bucket bags in style 2024?

They’re on pretty much all fashion editors bag trends lists for 2024. The last time I saw them on a runway was Dior’s fashion show back in June 2022 but they were all over the streets at Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2024. They were more predominant at the fashion shows like Flying Solo, Louis Vuitton and Chloe. So while they’re in for 2024, I’m not sure how much they’ll stick around going into 2025.

The handbag color trends for 2024 are bright or metallic! Some of the most popular handbag colors for this year are burgundy, pink, lavender, blue, all shades of green and metallic. As seen at Balmain, Loewe, Valentino, Ferragamo and Giambattista Valli Spring/Summer Paris Fashion Week to name a few.
