While we all love our trusted, classic bags, every once in a while we can’t help but get swept up in the trendier, “it” bags of the moment. Every year, a cluster of different bags seem to take the handbag world by storm. First, they get carried by well known faces, then they infiltrate all of our social media platforms, and eventually become “it” bags. Which bags are “in” and fading “out” changes so quickly that it is hard to stay on top of your game. PurseBop’s complied a list of some of the most popular “it” bags of the year to help you catch up on the trends.
Let’s take a look at 2015’s handbag game…

Iridescent Chanel Bags
Chanel’s latest iridescent bags from the Cruise 2016 collection are simply irresistible. The rainbow colored hardware has us head over heels. The shiny purple hued bags have been released in both the classic flap and boy bag styles.

The Gucci Dionysus bag perfectly combines simplicity and flair. The monogram material, leather contrast, and bold hardware together give the Dionysus a unique aesthetic. Styles from the past few seasons include print designs laid over the monogram, which add artistic detail to each bag.
Givenchy Mini Pandora Box Bag
Givenchy has released a lot of interesting, new styles for this fall. However, Givenchy’s Pandora Box bag in particular has received a lot of new attention.
