A chic bag is your best friend. You carry it everywhere to house your essentials and act as a brand ambassador for your personal style. In 2024, we see oversized, structured, and slouchy chic handbags with muted, metallic, and earthy color palettes, embossed or woven textures, and eye-catching silhouettes.
Crescent purses, clutches, totes, hobo bags, and bucket shapes are back – in an array of natural or vegan leather materials, pops of pastel or metallic, and even snakeskin shades.
Check out these top 10 exciting and trend-defining bags to carry into 2024.
Prada Arqué Leather Shoulder Bag
This sleek and exquisite bag is a current recreation of a ‘00s hobo-style bag. Warm and understated gold hardware adorns the crescent-shaped design in smooth Black, White, Travertine, or Cognac leather for a quiet luxury vibe.
It’s already a favorite for celebrities, influencers, and modern fashionistas such as Sofia Richie, Emma Watson, and Gigi Hadid.
The Original Bogg Bag
The Original Bogg Bag is a popular tote bag that is big enough to stash all your essentials for a girls’ trip or a family day at the beach. With its structured design, perforated EVA material, and two clear inner bags with white snap buttons that keep you organized, the Bogg Bag is durable, wipeable, and tip-proof to give you peace of mind wherever you go. Rinse and repeat to keep your Bogg Bag clean, tidy, and sand-free.
The covetable Bogg Bag is available in bright or pastel colors such as Blue-Eyed, Blushing, Bad to the Bone, and Carolina On My Mind. If you are looking for a more affordable option, look for a good Bogg Bag Dupe.

Big bags are back – and hotter than ever in 2024. Made in Bulgaria from sustainable leather materials, the Rafaella Trapeze Tote is a new take on the classic bucket bag.

Despite its small size, it features an interior pocket and an inside space that fits an iPhone 12 Pro Max or any phone smaller than that model.
