Essential Bags From Zara That You Need This Fall

From the hands-free crossbody bag to totes, there are the classic bag styles every woman should have in her closet.  Every season has its new collection of IT bags and the options can be rather overwhelming.  There were bucket bags and itty bitty micro-minis that dominated the trends not too long ago.

Instead of being overwhelmed by the many shopping options, here are the key types of bags every woman should have in her wardrobe for this season and beyond.


Shoulder bag with flap from Zara

The classic shoulder bag, once the main handbag of the ’90s, is back with a vengeance. It is an easy bag to hold, can go over the shoulder, in your hand, or clutch for a night out.

Crossbody bags are popular because of their hands-free appeal. Just throw one across your body and forget about struggling to carry both your grocery paper bags and phone at the same time.

The Bag Trend You Will Be Seeing In 2020

If you have not noticed already, big chains are everywhere since Fall.  The breakout accessory trend, chunky chain necklaces have evolved into a favorite accessory of the season – Chunky Oversize Chain-Strap Bags.  These chains are made of materials such as resin, acrylic and metal which creates an eye-catching effect. What’s the best part about chunky chain strap bags?  There are so many ways to wear them.  You can go big and bold with acrylic chain or stay low-key with a metallic gold chain on a black bag.

Vintage Trends That Are In High Demand In 2020

We all know the saying – what goes around, comes around eh? This applies to fashion too because the fashion trend is cyclical in nature. We often see trends returning from the past.  Designers are always looking into the past to reinvent the fashion from one decade before moving onto the next.  In recent years, we have seen fashion trends from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s being brought to the present day.

From the 70’s are the colorful scarves and the knee-high boots. Searches for scarves are at an all-time high and many fashion girls are styling scarves in creative ways, from tying them up over their heads to knotting them around their neck.

From the 80’s are the puff sleeves trend and I must say that it is such a delight to wear.  I am happy that this trend made a comeback.

Metallics is synonymous with the 80s styles.  They are getting more interest this year in the form of 80% bags and party dresses.

Who can forget the Baguette Bags from the 90’s? Remember the Fendi’s Zucca Baguette and Prada’s nylon shoulder bag?  This style is getting a big revival.

This Bag Trend Will Be Everywhere in 2020

Lately, the fashion crowds seem to adore all things nostalgic such as the 90’s inspired denim to flared jeans.  When it comes to handbag styles, there seems to be a resurgence of styles that some of us toted back then, such as Dior’s Saddle bag which has made a comeback this year.   Just recently, Jennifer Lopez stepped out with a cult bag from the early 2000’s – Longchamp Le Pliage tote in croc-embossed leather.

Remember the nylon Prada bags?  Elsa Hosk has been seen toting around an updated version of the nylon Prada tote bag.   Another popular one which supermodels, celebrities and fashionistas have approved is the return of the 90’s / 2000 underarm bag which is known as the baguette bag. This handbag style sits just below the armpit and was very popular 20 years ago.  If you are ready to embrace the best of the bags from the noughties and earlier again, it is time to invest in one now.  Check out the more affordable cult bags below.
