Handbag Trends To Love in 2020

*Today's blog post is sponsored by Plato's Closet. As always, all opinions are my own*

Handbags: No outfit is complete without the right bag. Your bag can truly make or break your look. We use them for everything from thing like carrying make-up, our sunscreen at the beach, snack holders, traveling, and sometimes we just like to use them as a fashion piece or actually hold our wallets.

I am the type of girl who mainly uses the same 3 staple bags (bags that never go out of style) because they match every single outfit I own. But as of lately, it's been hard to not to want to give into all the great trends, and cute bags I see right now all over stores for Spring.

Today I'm working with Plato's Closet to share a few bag trends that I am loving heading into 2020!


Take your accessories back to their roots by showcasing the bag made out of their original fibers! This creates a way to add fun to your accessories. Most of the time, these bags will be lightweight, and flimsy which makes them perfect during the spring summer warmth to carry all your belongings in. These playful bags always look handmade and remind me of DIY arts and crafts! They are usually bright and colorfully decorated. 

I loved this one for the pom pom effect and tassel detail. It's a nice bright white, and like wearing double the accessory. It's not uncommon to see these woven cotton bags come in the form of a tote or a clutch. 


Chain straps are back! Well... I feel as though they have always been a timeless detail about a bag, but right now you see them everywhere. Gucci and Chanel are known right now for their chain crossbody bags. With tons of other bloggers always strutting around with their designer bags, many retailers have jumped on the bandwagon of creating look a-like styles for the consumer who may not want to spend as much. That's why I loved this bag! It feels super high end to me, but I only paid $9 for it! 

I really loved the sleek, modern look of this bag. Not only will a chain give the bag something a little extra, but it will be sure to glam up your outfit without having to wear many accessories that day. 


 Straw bags make the perfect Spring/Summer bag. They're fit for a day at the park, beach, or even the office, and SO cute. Looks like for Spring 2020 these bags are back and blooming! I've already seen them all over retailers, and I am perfectly okay with this. There's a straw bag for any taste from small handhelds, rounded, crossbodies, totes, oversized totes, and more. 

I picked up this simple straw tote bag, and added my own personal flair to it with this adorable pom pom keychain. This keychain actually ended up being one of my best sellers last year! So cute and comes in tons of colors. 

Over the course of the last few years, I've truly started to love handbags more and more and understand their importance when it comes to not only completing your look, but also functionality. Make sure to take a swing by your local Plato's Closet and see what awesome trends you can spot! As always, thanks for reading!
