Winter 2022 Bag Trends — Best Winter Bags of 2022

Let’s be honest: nothing is a more universal conversation starter than “Where did you get that bag from?” These upcoming winter bag trends are the best icebreakers, no matter the temperature. There’s a trend for you, regardless of your aesthetic, whether you’re a wannabe seaside grandmother or more euphoria-friendly. Bags are fun because you don’t have to choose – you can carry a different bag every day and therefore a different vibe. There is plenty to choose from this winter.


Street style Loewe bag

Christian Vierig

We all feel a little shaky at times, and so do these bags. Take the Hermès Kelly Disorder, for example, which debuted on the brand’s FW22 runway. Perfectly imperfect, they’re a great way to add a twist to your winter wardrobe.

collina strada broccoli bag

Yuchen Liao

Between the broccoli bag worn at the SS23 show by Collina Strada and JW Anderson’s FW22 dove clutch, the it-bag for the coming seasons is all about l’objet. If you’d rather eat your veggies than carry them, try these pouches to get the same effect.

Team your down coat with an equally puffy bag this winter. Go big with a stand bag or small with a colour-block Kate Spade.

animal prints

For those of us who consider animal print neutral, this is a pretty safe trend. If you don’t think so, a cute zebra or cow print bag is the perfect transition to cool girls winter.

Street style handbag

There are soft, pretty bags, and then there are bags with rough edges. These are bags whose structures and hinges should not be hidden but should be in the foreground.

Rich velvet

Nothing says luxe winter like expensive velvet. These aren’t bags you bring to dump at a club – you take them there the Club (Zero Bond, Soho House, whatever).

‘Grass’ bags

Street style handbag

Christian Vierig

If you need to touch the grass, but the grass is dead and snowy this winter, at least find solace in these touch-sensitive bags. They might not be real – but hey, you don’t have to cast them.

Improved shine

prada sparkling bag

Edward Berthelot

The Y2K renaissance is as strong as ever, so why not have a bag to match? Just update your sequins this time with a sleek new Fendi (who, of course, invented the “it-bag”) and reinvent your rhinestones for a shine that won’t fade with the help of The Attico.

Dramatic denim

Jeans bag Julia Fox

Rachpoot/Bauer Griffin

Julia Fox invented denim, or at least that’s what social media wants you to believe. You don’t have to sew your own jeans together to join the trend – these brands have you covered.
