Trending Handbags: Winter 2020

Glitz & Glam

If you’re in need of a pick-me-up this winter, sparkle is just what the doctor ordered. Metallics are the new neutrals, but don’t just take it from us — take it from Harper’s Bazaar:

“The future is here, and that means metallics are the new neutrals. You’ll go for this trend again and again to reflect the winter snow and give your outfit an extra pop.”

Three of our Luxe Crush faves are:

Bag Bonus: This Gucci bag also hits another winter 2020 handbag trend … a sleek and stunning chain detail.

Geometry Class

No matter what grade you got in high school, ace the test of trending handbags for winter 2020 with these funky shapes. It’s yet another Luxe Crush look the experts agree on: Cosmo says fun-shaped bags are indisputably *IN* this winter.

If different shapes are a new subject for you, start with a classic LV cylinder. Then, graduate to an oval or round Gucci — both are fab finds for advanced students 😉

Bag Bonus: Cosmo also says mixed materials are trending for handbags in winter 2020, so this velvet + leather number ticks two boxes.


The Big Boys

Micro bags are cute and all, but in 2020, practicality is the name of the game. Just like your favorite sweater, these trendy oversized bags are roomy and comfortable yet chic enough to take on the town.

Bag Bonus: Chunky chain handle AND a big bag? Pinch us, we’re dreaming.


Fiery & Fab

Winter is cold, but you can stay hot through the holidays and beyond with a pop of fire-engine red. Bright colors are big news when it comes to winter 2020 handbag trends.

But if you’re not ready to pull the trigger on a full-time red bag, try these on for size with a short-term rental. We bet you’ll love your Lady in Red look so much you won’t want to give ‘em back.

Bag Bonus: This beauty is not only a bold red; it’s also oversized, so it pulls double duty for trending handbags in winter 2020.


Prim & Proper

There’s nothing more on trend than a classic, and that’s exactly what you’ll find with our 3 final picks for trending handbags in winter 2020. “Prada, Prada, Chanel” is the new “Duck, Duck, Goose” — and you’re it!

Bag Bonus: Not only does this classic Chanel have a metallic chain detail; it’s also quilted, which is yet another trend shouted out by Cosmo this year. Grab her before she’s gone!
