Sorry Structured Bags, Fashion Girls Think This Bag Is More Important Right Now

It seems like a lifetime since I picked up any of my structured handbags now gathering dust in my closet. Ever since working from home back in March, my bag choices have been akin to my clothing—soft, slouchy, easy, and unstructured silhouettes in lieu of office-ready polish.

Curvy and carefree bohemian-inspired bags have been having a major moment this season. On the F/W 2020 runways, hobo bags were given a modern twist—from Bottega Veneta’s chic woven leather iterations to Brandon Maxwell’s combination of sumptuous suede and jewel-tones—a far cry from Sienna Miller's hobo bags that may come to mind when we think of the name. Fashion girls have been quick to take on the relaxed and carefree trend—a natural extension to their more relaxed attire in 2020.

If you’re looking to sling the cool-girl bag over your shoulders this season, then take a peek at some of our absolute favorites below that are fresh, modern, effortless, and unabashedly cool—perfect to pair with every ensemble this season.
