30723 Interested |

We always have our eye on what's new and easy on the pocket, so we found conversation-starting trendy bags which will attract a whole lotta compliments. Scroll down to see how up & coming homegrown brands have been experimenting with different designs and cuts in women's bags to buy online. They'll make you click add to cart asap!

Cut-Out Bags

Cut-out bags have reached It-bag status this summer, and we're only spotting more and more of them week on week. They come in array of colours - from classic blacks & tans to pretty pastels. Plus we found some options with spacious pouches, making them the perfect 9 to 9 accessory.

Round Bags

Now and then, you've got to lighten your load and live a little — and these chic structured bags are just what you need for those lighter days. Keys, debit card, chapstick, done. They may not be functional enough for your everyday - but the style payoff makes it all worth it. We've currently got our eye on this quirky hand-embroidered elephant bag.

Chunky Chain Bags

Word on the street is that the chunky/thick handbag chain is all the rage and we're listening to the street-style fashion cops, because we're in love too! Despite being heavy weight, there's something feminine and fierce about this style that we think most will appreciate.

Bucket Bag

Sleek, unique and just as functional, the bucket bag ticks all the 'what I need in a bag' boxes. Hold it as a handbag or wear it as a sling, this style is bound to stand out either way. Plus, with enough space for essentials and a look that fits any occasion -- office to errands, we don't see this trend getting lost, ever.

Baguette or Short Shoulder Bags

Serving us all the 90s fashion vibes, the Baguette Bag has made a comeback and how! Everyone seems to be carrying one and in multiple styles and moods -- from vintage to sleek modern styles and everything in between. It may have a compact structure and a short shoulder strap but remember, you are paying to own an iconic fashion accessory!

Phone Holder Bag

Sure a Phone Holder bag may sound impractical, but think of the time you want to travel super-duper light with just your phone and cards or cash? When you're out for a walk or running a quick errand that does not need a huge bag to weigh you down? Besides, brands like Fendi, Chanel and Balenciaga and rolling with it, then why must we not? With affordable alternatives, of course.

Hobo/Slouchy Bag

If now isn't the time you're embracing the laid back slouchy/hobo shoulder bag look, you're doing it wrong. C'mon you're already living in loungewear why not have cool accessories that match! These aren't drab if that's what you're wondering. Instead, these carryalls have been given an elevated update.
