The runway has spoken, and larger sizes are in style this year. From major names like Louis Vuitton to newcomers looking to disrupt the status quo, larger styles of all kinds are becoming the go-to daily carry bag for women.
The appeal of using a weekender travel bag as an everyday carry is so wide, men who have usually opted for messenger bags are even starting to make the switch.
From the Office To Happy Hour
Flexibility is the name of the game this season. Designs that are hot range from the baguette style handbag to travel bags that allow you to carry what you need to transition from your work life to your social life without a trip home. More space, interior organization, and a fashion-forward style that invokes the moves made earlier in the year by runway icons like Michael Kors define the new look at the classic travel bag as an everyday handbag.
Travel bags are also ideal for the daily commute, even if you’re not headed anyplace special after the office. By design, this style is made to accommodate the range of personal items you need when traveling overnight or for a couple of days. No wonder they are taking over as the choice work bags for women. There’s even enough room for a simple wardrobe change or two. That makes it easy to hit the gym at lunch and the nightlife after work.
For That Weekend Getaway
The best part about a travel bag revival in the fashion industry is that they suddenly become a great option for discretion when you are on the road. Whether you are meeting up with a new flame for a quiet couple of days that allow you to get to know each other better or a simple retreat to balance yourself away from the city, you can pack what you need without necessarily tipping your hand that you are traveling away from home. If you’re taking public transportation, a good bag in this season’s style lets you blend right in with the short-hop commuters.
There’s a bit of extra security that comes with a weekend bag that can double as your purse, because all your personal supplies can be kept with you, whether you’re at your accommodations or you’re out. That makes it easier to stay out late with confidence, and it also gives you the option to change your plans at the last minute. Travel bags have always been about enabling spontaneity, and this season’s trends are no exception.
Colors To Match That Style
Oversized bag styles are not the only trend to hit this season. Combine the trend in larger silhouettes with a lean toward lighter colors including citrus and earth tones to hit the core of the 2023 look. Crystal ornamentation and box-shaped looks are also in, largely because the Noughties nostalgia is in full force for many top designers. That’s funny, considering that so many of them were around for these trends at the time.
It’s the novel combination of contemporary tastes and throwback style choices that set the tone for 2023. That’s something to keep in mind as you are bag shopping for the next season.
