Handbag trends: hobo bag, chain handle, and studded bags

Fall is a perfect time to revamp your handbag collection. This autumn, try a studded, mini, hobo, and chain handle bag. At Yoogi’s Closet, we love the classics, but as fashionistas, we always keep up with the trends. Read on for some of our favorite must-have trends for this season.

Chain Handles

Originally used by CoCo Chanel in her iconic Flap bags (both 2.55 and Timeless flap), chain handle bags are a perfect way to add some glamor to your everyday ensemble. This metal-heavy accessory acts like jewelry for your day to night look.Sometimes this chain bags feel heavy or painful on the shoulder, but that’s a personal preference. Nowadays, it seems like every designer has a chain strap bag, but we think you can’t go wrong with Chanel.

Hobo Bags

The hobo bag has been a favorite of fashionistas since the hippy-chic revolution of the 1970s. This easy to carry shoulder bag sits comfortably under your arm as your run errands with hands-free convenience.Typically designed in a half-moon shape, these shoulder bags can be structured or slouchy, but certainly functional. Some of our favorite hobo bags are made by Bottega Veneta, Gucci, and Chanel.

Studded Bags

Instantly add an edge to your ensemble with a studded bag. Channel your inner punk rocker with a bag covered in studs, or choose a bag with more prominent metal hardware for a rock chic vibe. These glam accessories can easily kick your outfit up a notch. Pair these with distressed jeans, boots and your favorite leather biker jacket for a motorcycle-inspired look. Studs can be found in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Valentino has tapped into this trend with their wildly successful Rockstud line, but you will also see studded bags throughout our luxury designers.

One of our favorite trends of the last few years, mini bags are typically shrunken versions of their larger counterparts or just tiny ways to carry your daily essentials. These nano bags usually come with a long strap for crossbody wear, creating a hands-free way to carry your essentials.These little cuties go by many names: BB, Nano or Mini. Try an adorable Fendi Mini By The Way bag or a Louis Vuitton Alma BB bag.
