Once upon a time,

there was a single It Bag each season that every fashion girl had to have. The tiny Fendi Baguette of the late 90s made popular by SATC, the Chloé Paddington that set the early 2000’s into a boho bag frenzy and, more recently, that black Celine tote.

In the past few years, we’ve been seeing a lot more diversity on the It Bag scene. Now that Fashion Month is behind us and the Instagram girls have started discovering their fresh favorites, we can clearly predict the bags that need to hold your lipstick in 2018.

THE THROW-BACK DIOR

Fashion is having a field day with nostalgia, and Dior is the latest brand to bring back an archived favorite: their classic saddle bag. Just big enough to fit your cell, lipstick and wallet, and available in a slew of fresh fabrics and patterns, the bag you coveted back in the day is here again — with a little facelift, of course.

THE GOLDNO.8 BAG IN BAG

The double bag is big this year, and nobody does it better than goldno.8. With a variety of chic, on-trend colors (that you can mix & match yourself!) and the luxurious combination of leather and silk charmeuse, it’s a win from a style standpoint. But goldno.8 takes it up a notch — the inner drawstring pouch is actually removable, so you are getting two entirely different looks in one.

CULT GAIA

If a basket was good enough for Jane Birkin, it’s good enough for all of us. Cult Gaia has given the wicker basket a serious update, adding a modern silhouette and ample storage room, but the sweet femininity of it lingers. It’s sure to be a go-to bag for Spring.

MARYAM NASSIR ZADEH TRANSPARENT TOTES

Maryam Nassir Zadeh has created an ingenious way to make luxury bags even more luxe: use them to display all the rest of your expensive tastes. Her see-through bags are about to be everywhere, so we’d advise also investing in a Byredo hand cream, a Moleskin planner and an equally beautiful wallet.
