What has 2016 looked like in terms of bags?? PurseBop wants to celebrate all the special handbags YOU all have loved and appreciated the most this year. We’ve taken into consideration instagram posts, BopTalk posts, and blog posts, and have compiled a list of the Top 10 bags loved by our community this year. Find out the top 10 below!
*Remember this list is no particular order! If you want more info on the bags listed, click the links below each description.
Saint Laurent Wallet on Chain
The Wallet on Chain is a forever favorite since it is such as practical accessory. This year we’re giving the Saint Laurent WOC a place on our top 10 because it continues to attract a wide variety of fashionistas with different personal styles and from all different ages. The Saint Laurent WOC in particular has a very modern, fresh look, which is why we think it is such a hot bag!
Gucci has really been killing the luxury game this year with the help of their new creative director, Alessandro Michele. Gucci has a new, funky and fun look, and has also made a big splash on the digital landscape and social media platforms. The Gucci Marmont is a beautiful flap bag that is a little reminiscent of the Chanel Classic Flap. However, the Marmont is about half the price and has a more playful look for those who are looking to stand out!
Goyard Saint Louis Tote
The Goyard Saint Louis Tote continues to be a PurseBop community favorite. We’ve created many extensive reference guides about the Saint Louis since so many of you have proven to be “Goyard Girls”. Every girl needs a cavernous, carry-it-all tote, and the Saint Louis fits all those parameters! Plus, the Goyard monogram is offered in many colors with options for personalization such as initials – you can truly craft your bag with all your desires in mind!
Louis Vuitton Mini Palm Springs Backpack
Every year, we get hit with the bug of “mini madness”. Mini bags have always had a certain appeal, however, mini backpacks have been this year’s biggest craze. The mini backpack we saw all over Instagram this year was the Louis Vuitton Palm Springs mini. In addition to just being simply adorable, the LV mini backpack has a casual, chic, and even athletic feel. By attaching the additional strap, you can also carry it like a traditional, crossbody bag.
A few months ago, we boldly claimed the Diorever might just be the best bag of 2016. Although we don’t want to pick favorites on our list, we have to say that this statement still remains somewhat true. The Diorever was released this year, and was immediately sought after by many bag aficionados. Celebrities have heavily endorsed the Diorever and further reinforced its status as an “it” bag. Initially, there was some criticism over whether the Diorever was a “Birkin Copycat“. However, the Diorever holds its own as an unique, beautiful bag. The Diorever scores points on two major trends this year: mini bags and top handle bags. We can’t wait to see if the Diorever will become a Dior “classic” like the Lady Dior Bag and the Diorama.

8 Reasons We’re Obsessed with the Diorever
Hermes Birkin 30
The Birkin Bag is an ever classic bag, and even the ultimate Holy Grail Bag for some fashionistas. This year, the Hermes Birkin 30 makes our list because handbag size has been a big topic of conversation as of late. With trends constantly changing, it’s hard to know whether to go mini or go big. The Birkin 30 is a happy-medium, and is a versatile, everyday bag. Yet, the question remains: will the Birkin 30 be the most popular bag size next year too?
Hermes Mini Kelly II
Praise the Hermes Gods, the Mini Kelly is back! This year, Hermes re-released the vintage K20 as the “The Kelly Mini II”. The Kelly Mini II is shaped slightly more like the Kelly Pochette rather than the traditional Kelly handbag, There was a lot of excitement and hype over this release, and we only expect the enthusiasm to grow.
Along with the Birkin and Kelly, the Hermes Constance is one of H’s most popular bags. The Hermes Constance has been a hot bag this year because Hermes recently put it back into production. We’ve seen Hermes aficionados posting the Constance all over instagram, and our admiration for the Constance just keeps growing. Hermes offered the Constance as a special order last season and is speculated to make more Constance bags for the upcoming seasons.
Last year, Fendi’s satchel bag, the Fendi Peekaboo, was named the “it” bag of 2015 by Vogue Magazine. This year, we feel like the Fendi Dotcom deserves a spot one of the top bags of the year. The Dotcom is one of Fendi’s newer designs, and it is very practical and sleek. If you’re still looking for an everyday bag or a work bag, the Dotcom could be your best bet!
The Givenchy Antigona is a bold and edgy, yet classic and feminine bag. It makes our list because it has proven itself to be a best seller over and over again. Extra points for its practicality and durability! The top handle and strap for crossbody wear are other major selling points.
