THIS IS THE LAST SEASON’S FASHION REPORT – GO TO SEE 2019/20 BAG TRENDS INSTEAD
And it’s time for a new trend report and new shopping list. Since you already learnt the Shoe Trend Report by your heart and already shopped most of the shoes from my shoe shopping list. By the way, how many shoes did you get? I’m already halfway through the list. My next purchase is luxe pool slides. After I get the IT bags of the season.

WHAT BAGS ARE IN FASHION FOR SPRING SUMMER 2018
Anyway, shoes aside, it’s time to discuss bags this time. I bet you can’t wait to see all the must-have bags fashionistas are buying and wearing this season. Luckily, our shopping list is shorter than the one for shoes and swimwear. And we actually own few bags from the shopping list already.
So what bags that are in fashion for spring summer 2018 we already have? As said few. Although unfortunately many of them only kept their name while the design, well the design is all new now. Making our old bag look old and outdated. In short, out of style.
Whatsoever, all about what bags are out of fashion for spring summer 2018, what bags from the previous season are still in style a bit later. First, let’s play your favourite game. Tick the bags and bag trends you think are in fashion for spring summer 2018. Ps. Be sure to share your results on Instagram and Twitter #BSuqadKnows
BAGS THAT ARE OUT OF STYLE FOR SPRING SUMMER 2018
Before we head on what bags are in fashion for spring summer 2018, a quick stop at bags that are officially out of fashion for spring summer 2018. Surprisingly the list is not that long this time. Or not. I mean what girl can let her favourite bag become a dust catcher while walking around with a new trendy bag she doesn’t love as much as the old one. I definitely can’t.
Yes, that’s the reason why you keep seeing me holding the same bags. Sorry but not sorry. Besides, I make sure I always buy bags that stay in fashion for a long time. Well almost always. Because that small black bag that I still carry on repeat, well that little bag is out of the style for spring summer 2018. And no not even that top handles make it fashionable. Read one handle too much. Plus it’s not small enough either. So yes, I’m officially out of style when it comes to the bags this season.
Well, at least I’m not wearing bags on bags (this year we wear a bag in a bag), clutch, fur bag or Jansport backpack. Yes, these bags are out of fashion too. Also, the fashionistas’ favourite last year’s bucket bag is out of style for spring summer 2018. Although the emphasis is on last year’s because the bucket bag is still in fashion for spring summer 2018. If we can even call it that way. As to me, it looks completely different.
In short, toss clutch, black two handle bag, big city backpacks, fur bags, woven bags (because these bags are just horrendous) and everything that is not on the Fashionista’s approved Chic shopping list. Keep reading to see the list!
Oh, almost forgot! Be sure you don’t match your bag with the shoes this season! Read more about this here.
BAGS WE WORE LAST SEASON THAT ARE STILL IN FASHION FOR SS 2018
So what bags from the previous season you can still wear to look fashionable this summer? Apparently, the belt bags or fanny packs (yet don’t know the official fashion term for that funny bag), chain shoulder bag, raffia bags. Yes my Nannacay bag https://brunettefromwallstreet.com/dress-up-spring-picnic/(last seen here) is still in fashion. And also fringe bags. But only because it’s festival season. Don’t wear a fringe bag for the city.
SPRING SUMMER 2018 BAG REPORT
Finally, the spring summer 2018 bag report. Not sure if this is actually the entire spring summer 2018 bag report, but I did my best to find all the bags that are in fashion now. Apparently, the classic bags are still trending, and you should wear them regardless the shape or colour because they are called classic bags for a reason.
So yes, your Birkin is still in fashion. Although, I wouldn’t wear it. This is an investment bag. Rather keep it safe. It’s like a stock, only that you can see it hanging in your closet. Or deposits in your bank account, only that this one is actually getting on value while your money is just lying there.
Whatsoever, enough of financial talk. Ps. For money-investment related questions send me an email. I’m a financial consultant in my free time. Because fashion, well fashion is a far more serious thing, you know what I mean?
Back to the bags and my spring summer 2018 bag report. As usual, I’m starting this fashion report with colours first.
By the way, you can pin, save and print all the EDITs – fashion cheat sheets you see in this blog post. Furthermore, the EDITs are shoppable too. Meaning, you can shop all the bags you see in this blog post simply by clicking on it. Yes, same goes for the bags you see out of the widgets. See that pink box around the bag? Well, that means that I added a link to that bag. If you click/touch it, a link will take you straight to the store, where you can buy that bag.
TELL ME THE COLOUR OF YOUR BAG, AND I TELL YOU HOW FASHIONABLE YOU ARE – SS 2018 COLOR REPORT FOR BAGS
Finally, what colour should your bags be this season? Surely you know these colours quite well already. I mean you have seen them all in my Spring Summer 2018 Fashion Report (the one with all, but seriously all fashion trends of the season – in case you missed that report, check it here) and in SS 2018 Shoe Report (here).
But just to recap, here is your SS 2018 Colour chart for bags.
So what colour should your bag be then? Fashionistas are buying bags in these colours first!
#1 BOLD RAINBOW
For the bold monochrome looks of course. Shop my favourite bold bags from the widget below.
#2 BEACHY BROWNS
All the three brown and natural shades that match the sand and your chocolate ice cream.
#3 SORBET COLOURS
Ps. Match your bag with the ice cream you are eating and not the shoes you are wearing. By the way, do you know how to eat ice cream like a lady? No idea? Then find out here.
PLASTIC, LEATHER OR RAFFIA? SS 18 MOST FASHIONABLE MATERIALS FOR BAGS
So what material should your bag be made from in 2018 then? We loved raffia bags last year. And we still do. The most fashionable bags for 2018 spring summer are all (wait not all, check the list below) made of plastic, leather and raffia. As long as they come in the right shape and size, of course.
BAG SILHOUETTE REPORT
Seems like we are moving fast this time. In comparison to the shoe SS 18 fashion report, I mean. I told you our shopping list will be slightly shorter this time. Whatsoever, we need to check the silhouette report first.
What shape should your bag be for spring summer 2018 then? Think round, big, small, horse … wait, what? Yes! As you read. Well not exactly. I mean saddle. Furthermore the V bucket, by the way, is this even a bucket? Lastly flap, basket for eggs … Not to say anything more, check the EDIT below. Oh and don’t forget, you can shop all the bags you see in this EDIT. Just touch/click on the pink box around your favourite bags that will show up as you scroll down the page.
BIG OR SMALL?
The answer is both. Extra big or extra small. All in between is last season.
TOP HANDLE OR STRAP?
Again, both. Yet top handle should be mono, single handle. Like the one on my pink top handle bag (last time seen here).
CHAIN STRAP OR LEATHER STRAP?
Ha, thinking better the answer is not straightforward here. Apparently, the number one strap is the chain strap. But when it comes to the belt bag, the most fashionable bag of the season, the strap is in leather again. Although truth to be told the most fashionable of all beltbags would be a belt bag with a chain strap. Surely you can wrap your small chain strap back around your waist and wear it as a fanny tuck. But this it’s not legit, is it?
ZIP OR FLAP
Flap. Which means your Chanel boy is even more fashionable than you thought, right?
ROUND OR SQUARE
2018 is all about the round bags. Even the, well especially, the straw basket bags should be round.
THE NEW SHAPES
No, the round bags are not the only new shape of the bag that is in fashion for spring summer 2018. We are wearing other new shapes too. And we definitely didn’t see them coming. Well, maybe we did. But this doesn’t mean we actually like them all. You sure won’t see me wearing disk bag.
Well thinking again, you might. But you certainly won’t see me walking around with the Dior saddle bag. It’s ugly! And my ugly quota is filled with the ugly shoes. By the way, have you seen my new ugly shoes already? Be sure to follow me on Instagram and LIKEtoKNOW.it to see what shoes I mean. Ps. I post my daily looks on LIKEtoKNOW.it first.
Anyway, back to the bags. Even classic bags, I mean the new classic bags such as Chloe, J.W. Anderson and come in new shape this season. And yes, we swap Chloe Drew for Chloe Drew Bijou this season. By the way, which one do you prefer? Chloe Drew or Chloe Bijou? My favourite is actually Chloe Nile. The little one. And no, not only because of the price.
Back to the bag silhouettes. Here are all the new shapes.
V BUCKET BAG
This year the bucket bag is slightly wider at the top edge. As said this doesn’t even look like a bucket to me anymore. Yet we still call it this way. I guess only to make it legit to wear our last year’s bucket bags.
Not sure we can say Wandler Hortensia bag is in fact saddle bag, but I’m adding it here anyway. Still, there is, as mentioned before, that ugly legit saddle bag too. Would you wear it?
Luckily, my raffia basket bag hasn’t entirely gone out of style yet. As I really love it. Not mentioning how cute it is. Nevertheless, there is this new basket bag in the town. And it looks just like that basket your grandma used when picking/buying chicken eggs. Although more stylish and pricy of course.
Meet your new J.W. Anderson bag. Not sure if you still have your CD-player, but this is the bag you wanted to have like 15 years ago when you went to your friend with your precious CD collection.
Again, the round bag. Just to make sure you don’t forget about the IT shape of the bag this season.
BAG TRENDS FOR SPRING SUMMER 2018
Finally, the list of all spring summer 2018 bag trends. And yes the list of all bag trends for spring summer 2018 is long. Well at least long enough to break your bank. Ps. Don’t worry I found cheaper versions of the most fashionable bags for you as well. So be sure to check the galleries to see them.
Anyway, I’m sharing all the must-have bags for spring summer 2018 in my shopping list below (you can save or pin that list). But first, all bag trends you really must remember. Ps. The order of these bag trends is more or less random. They all are important.
#1 BELT BAG
If you still don’t have a belt bag, now is the time to get it finally! And no, it doesn’t have to be that big Gucci belt bag. In fact, the little one is far chicer. Not to say budget friendly. So small as it is you can hardly put in your entire paycheck.
#2 BAG IN BAG
Looks like a bag trend that won’t break your bank, right? I mean how expensive should putting a bag in a plastic shopping bag even be. It turns out that this fashion trend is not as cheap as it seems. Well thinking better you don’t get plastic shopping bag at the grocery for free either. At least not anymore.
#3 ROUND BAG
Either in raffia or in leather as long as it’s round. Which one is your favourite? I really love that pink one!
#4 PLASTIC BAG
This one is actually related to the bag in bag trend. Pardon, bag in a transparent bag.
#5 BIG XL TOTE
Not a fan I must say. Yet here are my favourites.
#6 BOLD BAG
Be sure to tone down your look with pastel shoes. Or go for an entirely monochrome bold look.
#7 TOP HANDLE BAG
My favourite type of bag for sure.
#8 THE MINI PURSE
Is there any other more adorable bag trend than minaudière? I don’t think so.
#9 LOGO BAG
I guess I should add this bag trend to the top as it’s really big for spring summer 2018. Everyone wants to shout out loud the name of her fashion team.
#10 FLAP BAG
You know what my favourite flap bag is.
Yes, the wristlet is back in fashion. But we wear it differently this year. This year is time for folding wristlet.
#12 SADDLE BAG
#13 Luis Vuitton MINI BACKPACK
After being named as the most important brand by Forbs, seeing Luis Vuitton’s mini backpack as it’s own fashion trend shouldn’t be surprising at all.
#14 BUCKET BAG
The new bucket bag as said before. Slightly more in V shape.
#15 BASKET BAG
Look for the basket bag that reminds you of an egg basket.
#16 COLOR BLOCKING BAG
Remember how we did the colour blocking, or better say colour clashings last year? Good news you don’t need to bother with choosing the right colours to clash. Just get a colour blocking bag instead. My favourite is this one from Escada.
#17 PASTEL BAG
To match the ice cream, you are holding in your other hand.
#18 CHAIN SHOULDER BAG
#19 NET TOTE BAG
#2O DISK BAG
J.W.Anderson Disc Bag is a must. Although there are some other disk bags out there too.
#21 BEADED BAG
This bag has actually two functions. It’s a fashionable bag, plus it can give you a massage. How cool is that?
#22 WOVEN BAG
#23 RAINBOW BAG
#24 ART PRINT
SPRING SUMMER BAG SHOPPING LIST – THE LIST OF SPRING SUMMER 2018 MOST FASHIONABLE BAGS

TOP #5 SUMMER BAGS
Just a small recap. In case you can only afford one bag this summer. Here are top #5 summer bag trends. 5 bags every fashionista will wear this summer. Ups, didn’t I say if you can only afford one thing? Well, I guess we will have to save on ice cream then! Or maybe not! One is under $40!
