Bags are making a BIG comeback this year. Long gone are the days of teeny tiny micro bags (for now), as this season we welcome the return of the supersized chunky bag.

Spring/Summer Trends to Look Out For This Year

Supersized Chunky Bags Are Trending

If you have your finger on the pulse, you’ll be well aware of a big (literally) upcoming accessories trend: huge handbags. Not only are these bags a statement item for any outfit, they’re also packed with functionality. We’re talking wide, long-bodied, trip-hazard-sized bags that you could squeeze half the house into. The ideal grab-and-go bag.

And it seems the chunkier, the better. Many brands stormed the SS22 runway with bags at the ready, slung over shoulders or skimming the floor in a loose grip. From Chanel’s queen-sized quilted handbags to Chloé’s big basket bags, the season is anticipated to be larger than life (in more ways than one).

You can shop our edit of the best oversized bags for 2022 below, but before you shop make sure you don’t have something you can use at home. While we’re all for exploring what’s new at our favourite boutiques, we must remember to be mindful of the planet. With many trends the product of style recycling, it’s easy to instead try digging around the back of your wardrobe for your next obsession. Alternatively, try sourcing from rental and resale sites.
