The popular style for 2023 will be the boxy structured satchels. This is a minimalistic design with square, rigid shapes, and top handle bags with a heavy emphasis on the handle. I’m showing you here a shoulder bag I saw in Paris. Minimalistic look with hard edges. It comes in black and brown as well.

It’s simple and easy for a minimal look. You throw in your lip gloss, hopefully, your phone fits and you’re ready to run out the door. It’s like you’re carrying an oversized wallet. I always enjoy the shape. It’s fun to try to fit things in, and just makes me feel like a girl playing grownup elevated-toed bag.
The baguette bag brings back so many memories from the 90s.
Elevated Tote Bag
Think luxury on full display on your tote bag. I thought this one looked interesting to brighten up your mood perhaps. This, to me, looks well made, and I won’t be surprised if you see cheaper remakes in this style.
It’s certainly not your classic tote. Something more wearable is the leather coach tote, for example, is very roomy and well made by maintaining its shape when placed down, as opposed to everything melting away with a soft shell tote. I particularly like the white strap that can be placed around the neck and bonus if you’re looking for a less flashy style. This one here has no visible logos. It says if the cross body is now being replaced by the tote body, so if you’re used to seeing the $10 tote bag this year, they’re leveling up.

Why wear one bag when you can wear two? Apparently, your back needs a back too. A nice matching set or even in the same shade, but a different style.
Now, unfortunately, I don’t have a lot to show you here because they’re not out yet, so here’s one example I found from free people to give you an idea. They will be joining through a link or something easy you can create is to style two bags you already have on top of each other. You want to make sure that there are different sizes. So they don’t clash.

We talked about the trend a lot in clothes and fashion trends for 2023. Here we will see crystal embellishments, sequence, feathers, and fringe. I like the details of the wicker texture for warmer weather wear.
Buckles, lots and lots of buckles on the purse. Remember, one of the biggest trends in fashion is the moto look, which will be incorporated into every component of the outfit. Bags will be no different. We will see a lot of buckles and metal clasps added to the handbags.
Silver buckles are a great way to match the silver shoe trend. Make sure whatever bug you get, it matches with the shoes and the belt. If you are wearing one.
This style is very easy to detect. You have your usual handbag with lots and lots of pockets on the outside, sort of like cargo pants or purses.
Puffy Fluffy Pillow Bags
Puffy, fluffy pillow bags that are so touchable and squeezable, extra large supersize bags that can cover half your body.
So here we have the famous bag. It looks like a plushy toy on your shoulder. I chose this tote because it has so many trends in one. It’s oversized and is that fluffy trend we will see everywhere. It somehow looks comforting and huggable. It’s the ultra-big size that will make a statement this year as it covers a big part of your upper body.
You know, the floral trend is something we’ve seen in clothes and shoes as well. One of the details I enjoy about this trend in bags is that we can see options of bags not only with floral prints, but an actual shape of flowers. It’s so unique and interesting, and if you like feminine lines, this is a nice addition to your collection. Once in a while something special comes along and you can’t help but feel like we need to take a moment and appreciate the art of craftsmanship at its best.
Bright Color Bags
To make this trend easy, think of all the citrus colors we have in greens and oranges. Also, let’s not forget about the big pink trend from this year, and of course the cobalt blue, silver, and metallics.
I recommend pairing this carefully with. Silver jewelry and if wearing any additional buckles in the outfits, a match in shade. It’s not an easy task, but it’s doable. Speaking of color, we also talked a lot about fashion trends the black colors, and the monochromatic styles, which will be all over the bags as well.
I really like this trend as it will make it very easy to style your outfits. One of my favorite ways, To combine the different shades is to just have an entire set top to bottom, the same color, or with lighter and darker shades within the same family. Doesn’t need to be exact.

This reminds me of the 90s again. I used to own these and find them, figure-flattering. They tuck in so nicely under your arm. I also like the soft curves as it homogenizes better with the overall feminine physique.
Vegan and Sustainable Alternatives
Be on the lookout for vegan and sustainable alternatives as they are on the rise this season
The perfect example of a straight angle, a rectangle, simplistic style. We will see a lot in bonus detail. It’s made out of recycled nylon. We are seeing the popularity of sustainable options and the increase in interest in eco-friendly alternatives.
