The New Year is just around the corner, and you know what that means, don't you? No, we're not talking about resolutions (though those are important, as well). We're actually referring to the new 2019 fashion season, which brings with it a slew of fresh trends that are officially making their way from the runway into the street style scene. Now is officially the time to invest in these staples, and first up on the list are the biggest bag trends for 2019.
To figure out which bags will be huge next year, we tapped celebrity stylist, Britt Theodora, for her expert insight. From the perfect party clutch to the sleek and practical crossbody, 2019's accessories have something for everyone, whether you like the glitzy and sparkly or the minimalist, everyday picks. Ahead, see five bag trends predicted to be everywhere come 2019, along with Theodora's picks.
Crushed glitter clutches
"I cannot get enough of this Edie Parker clutch. Finally, a cute little clutch with a handle! Love this for a party or dressing up jeans and a leather jacket."
Top handle bags
"I love this Mark Cross bag. There is something so polished about the simple square shape. "
Pick a crisp white bag to brighten up any outfit in an instant.
Elevated see-through bags
"Staud has finally mastered the see-through bag without seeing everything inside. Love this bag in pink because the concept is already so playful. Why not wear a little pink?"
"A lot of people ask me what kind of backpack they should get for work. I love this Miansai black leather backpack. The finish of the bag is matte, which is perfect for making a sophisticated statement without feeling you look like you're back in high school."
Black crossbody bags
"I love this Givenchy crossbody because if you want to wear the bag in the evening, you can store the leather straps and wear the gold chain that is draped on it as a little handle. It dresses it up for nighttime, but the crossbody leather strap is great for the day."
This one hits on two major bag trend: the top handle style as well as an elegant black crossbody.
