From the iconic 2.55 quilted leather bag by Chanel in 1955 to Bottega Veneta Pouch Bag in 2020, bag model trends have come a full circle with color pops, styles, functionality, and a quirky element. As with the trends, we all know they keep coming back, but bag trends seem more fleeting than clothes, accessories, or shoes. After a hiatus of around two years when the need for carrying bags had disappeared overnight, bag trends seem to be catching up again with the latest fashion in the post-covid era.

Or take, for example, the trendy Tomme Studio's basketball bag with the Jordan air logo. While this is one of the coolest-looking bags out there, it can give you pain after hours of wearing. Plus, it is not that functional.
Or, the trendy Moschino Biker handbag, which actually looks super trendy and chic, but it doesn’t carry any functionality and, with all the hardware, it is quite a heavy one to carry.
There are many trendy, quirky and fun bags that fashionistas love to carry without them being functional, comfortable, or easy to carry. On the other hand, we believe fashion should be timeless, comfortable, and stylish besides being cool and functional. Through this blog, we will discover some of the coolest yet hottest bags for spring/summer 2022 that are equally fashionable as these quirky little odds but far more functional, evergreen, and worth their price.
The Hottest Bag Trends for Spring/Summer 2022
As seen with the recent trends, shoppers are far more involved with luxury-focused shopping post the covid times. They want a luxurious yet spacious bag that can comfortably carry everything. Durability, longevity, and versatility are equally important too. The ‘It’ bag is a revived version of the old classics.
Another essential factor buyers focus on is the vegan alternative to leather bags. From PU leather, mushroom leather, or apple peel leather, there are many alternatives to real leather now as compared to earlier. And they are equally stylish and trendy, although a little less durable.
Overall, spring/summer fashion talks about a mix of fun colors and the latest fabrications that blends well with your aesthetics. But sometimes, having a little fun is equally important. Let us explore a few options that are as trendy as they are stylish, comfortable, and evergreen, along with some fashionable ideas to style them.
