Top Handle Handbags Are Trending Right Now

We all have our different fashion vices. For some it’s an obsession with shoes, for others its coats but for most, we fall into the handbag category. We appreciate the iconic investment pieces and will continue to place them front and centre on our mood boards until savings make that dream a reality but what really gets us handbag lovers going is the excitement of a new accessory micro-trend and the challenge of welcoming it into the 2019 fashion scene.

This time around we’re all about the top-handle handbag, worming its way into our wardrobes as elegantly as possible. Just think back to that top-handle handbag you’re super glam nan used to carry. Now give it a 2019 refresh à la Fashion Month street style stars and voilà, you’re practically one of them. Sure a crossbody bag and a strap may be practical but there’s an air of femininity and elegance created by the top handle bag that just can’t be beaten by functionality on the fashion front. This season it’s all about structured and scaled-down when it comes to handbags, embracing bold colours as you do so.
