Some Trends for 2020
Attempts to predict the long term future of fashion often seem comical in hindsight. But fashion conscious people always find the present trends to be interesting. Here’s a few trends that we see as 2019 morphs into 2020.
The Sling Out
We always said that the strap was the underappreciated part of any handbag. For one thing it needed to be just the right length to sit right on the shoulder. But this has changed form with the sling strap.
The bag with the sling goes diagonally across the shoulders, holding the bag at the hip. This new design element is in many bags of many styles, from neat conservative leather to colourful and bizarre bag designs.
The big ‘in your face’ buckle has become popular, as has the moderate buckle than neatly fits in with the bag design. This is very different to the older subtle clips that previously held the bag closed.
Some big buckles are fashion ornaments only, they perform no practical function.
Tiny bags have been around for a few years; almost a purse on a strap. This year they are getting even smaller. Not always practical, but damn cute.
In contrast to the mini bag is the big tote bag. This has plenty of storage space, but not the separate compartments of may other bags.
Totes are available in anything from sleek leather to open weave designs. Simple, yet effective if combined with the right outfit.
Draw String Bags
A bucket bag – loose with a drawstring top. This is another design element that can be used for anything from crochet to suede leather.
