Ladies and gentlemen, I want to go shopping. To be fair, I pretty much always feel the itch, but I don’t necessarily always allow myself to itch. That said, this time I’m cooking up a storm — and I’m using all the hottest 2022 bag trends as my metaphorical backscratcher. They get the job done!

Okay, let’s drop the whole metaphor and get down to business. I really don’t requires a new purse at the moment, but I’m looking to add some spice to my wardrobe and I can’t afford brand new everything. When you are in a similar situation, let accessories be your savior. A few new pieces can transform your current staples when styled right!

So what’s great 2022 bag trends to remember? Lately it’s been all about sinuous silhouettes, but the tide is turning and structure is in. Box bags and more rigid, classic shapes are definitely in the mix, but often in softer leathers that still allow for some give. Let’s take it easy, am I right?

Of course, all your favorite brands have drool-worthy bags on the market right now, from STAUD and Coach to celebrity favorites like JW Pei (EmRata is obsessed). Corperni and Brandon Blackwood are bringing out new It Bag silhouettes second hand, and of course I’ll never say no to cute NY-based brands like Freja New York.
