A lady can never have too many handbags. We’ve found three new bag trends you simply have to add to your ever-growing collection. From the runways to the streets, the circular, chain strap and mini-bags have earned their spots as must-have bags this season. Whether it’s their shape, size or detail, all these bags have a unique element that we’re obsessed with and which have helped us rank them at the top of our must-have list this season.

Chain Straps

Chain straps are back! There’s a timeless yet edgy feel that we love about the chain strap, a favourite on the runway. You can wear this as a cross-body, over your shoulder or even wrap the chain around the bag and carry it like a clutch.

Circular Bags

The circular bag has a dainty, romantic appeal. Whether it’s woven or leather, small or large, this playful handbag is the perfect accessory to any outfit and can easily make the transition between day and night.


The mini-bag proves that dynamite comes in small packages. It’s a hit on the runway, streets and with celebs. What’s not to love about this miniature creation? Its size does, however, make it more of an accessory, rather then a functional bag, but who needs functionality when you’re carrying this statement piece?
