Following the main trends of the season and the most relevant shoes, it's time to understand the world of bags. This season turned out to be extremely diverse, and there were a lot of interesting bags on the catwalks. For all this, designers generally maintained moderation, playing more with colors and decor than with forms
Stripes are a trend not only in clothes, but also in bags. They enliven any bag and give it brightness. For evening bags, this print most likely will not work, but for the daytime - just right!
Delicate pastel shades are an ideal choice for the warm season, accessories in soft blue, dusty pink or lilac colors look very feminine.
One of the rare form experiments this season. Small round bags, resembling embroidery hoops and often decorated with embroidery or other decor, look catchy and stylish.
The bags that have been hanging on top of the fashionable Olympus for the third season are less and less resembling their sporting ancestors.
Small bags of tight shape
Small bags of hard shape with rich decor in the West were called funny packs. Such a bag will definitely become the central detail of your image.
One of the most striking trends, both in clothes and shoes, is plastic. Therefore, there is nothing surprising in the fact that this material crept into the trends of bags. Why did he get in there, powerfully speak! Moreover, if you want to try on this trend, then a plastic bag is the easiest way.
A trend that migrated from last summer. Funny wicker baskets and straw bags will appear not only on the beaches, but also on the streets of fashionable capitals.
Minimalism manifested itself both in color and in design. But if you want to make a white total look relevant this spring, then you can not do without a white bag.
Bags with appliqués
Stickers and applications were relevant only 4 years ago and now they are back again. Some of the designers chose to turn to the 70s, others played a surrealist card, decorating the bags with bright colored spots or drawings in the style of Salvador Dali.
Bags with chains instead of handles
The chain on the bags instead of the handle, the invention of Coco Chanel, in the spring-summer 2018 season acquired a punk mood.
If even in the summer you are not ready to part with fur, then a fur bag is the best solution. True, in the wake of the latest news about an increasing number of fashion brands that have decided to abandon the use of natural fur, the bag will most likely be made of artificial fur.
Voluminous and comfortable, pillow bags will fall in love with those who are used to carrying not only a smartphone and lip gloss, but also those who like soft shapes.
The return of the trend from the early 2000s. Flaunting your bag brand again is not at all embarrassing!
Small bags with a rounded bottom - for those who love simple shapes.
Triangle Hobo Bags
Familiar bags changed shape from rounded to triangular, and, we can safely say, we like such a transformation!
This form is also popular for several summer seasons in a row, so if you looked at it last summer, now is the time to buy!
Another trend that we can’t get away with: fringe lies in wait for us in clothes, shoes, and bags.
# 1 Saddle Bag
It is no coincidence that a rigid bag with a semicircular bottom line is called a saddle bag. Her form has developed historically, as the most convenient when riding a horse. Thanks to the smooth lines and the absence of corners, the bag trimmed to the saddle did not interfere with either the horse or the rider. A rigid form protected the contents from deformation, and a solid lid covering the upper and front parts protected from rain and snow.
As a fashionable women's accessory, a saddle bag was especially popular in the “hippy” 70s, and now returned again, along with many other trends of those years. Couturier handbags with miniature and medium sizes complemented the images of their spring-summer collections, once again confirming the cyclical nature of fashion. Fashionable handbags-saddles differ from their predecessors from the 70s by large metal fittings, chain handles, and bright colors.
# 2 Round shape
The trend towards clarity of forms and the desire for originality have created a new trend - round handbags. In general, bags resembling a drum are known for a long time, in the literal translation from English they are called “hat box” (Hat box).
However, compared with the traditional Hat box, the models of round handbags presented for the spring-summer season of 2018 have much more elegant shapes that fit, perhaps, the smallest hat. The fashion for the original round handbags will please lovers of everything extraordinary.
# 3 bucket bag
In pursuit of the original form, fashion designers remembered the “well-forgotten” bag model in the form of a vertical cylinder. This trend will delight lovers to carry with them a lot of necessary things, because the compact-looking bag-bucket is characterized by increased capacity. Distinctive features of the bag-bucket are a hard bottom, well-kept in shape, and a drawstring strap. The material of a fashionable handbag can be either whole leather or a patchwork sewn from colorful fragments.
# 4 Waist bag
A handbag on a belt worn as a belt is a wonderful invention that frees your hands. And the fact that the waist bag remains among fashion accessories cannot but rejoice, because it is very convenient. However, not all girls and women know where to put their hands free, many begin to miss something in their hands, for example, handbags or clutches. Be that as it may, the waist bag in the spring / summer 2018 season will be very popular, and most likely will stay with us for a long time, moving from the category of attributes of market traders to the category of everyday goods.
# 5 Clear plastic
The fashion for transparent plastic in clothes and shoes did not go around bags. It seems that the designers gave a cry: “All for show!” And try to convince women that they have nothing to hide. On the fashion catwalks of 2018, all kinds of transparent plastic bags were noticed - shoppers, briefcases, evening ones. If you think about the benefits of such handbags, the first thing that comes to mind is the idea of their fashionability. And they are light and waterproof. And do not hide their rich inner world. Truly, this is a very worthy trend!
# 6 cloak for bag
If fashionable bags made of transparent plastic are not afraid of rain, then for other representatives of marsupials, wetting is not advisable. The world famous brand Balenciaga decided to correct this injustice and released raincoats for bags from waterproof fabrics. In fact, this element could claim the title of cover, but the shape in the form of a cape makes it look exactly like a cloak. The presentation of the novelty took place at one of the shows for the spring / summer season of 2018 and attracted the approval of the public.
# 7 Pastel shades
The trend for pastel shades in clothes did not leave bags aside, because this accessory should be in harmony with the outfit. Having dressed in delicate pastel robes and taking a dark or bright bag, you can destroy the whole harmony of the image.
On the fashion catwalks for the upcoming spring / summer 2018 season, designers demonstrated a lot of handbags in pastel shades. Pale blue, dusty pink, muted turquoise, creamy - which the pastel palette tones were not used by the creators of these feminine accessories!
# 8 Decorative spikes
Such an attribute of punk culture as metal spikes does not contradict femininity. After all, roses also have thorns, and they do not make these flowers less beautiful and delicate. Metal spikes in women's fashion have repeatedly been raised to the peak of popularity, and now they have to decorate fashionable women's bags.
In order for this accessory to look appropriate, the image must be designed in the style of aggressiveness and rock. Models showing bags with spikes at the shows for the spring / summer season 2018 were dressed in total black or black and white monochrome. In the images were used boots, mini, mesh tights, accessories with metal rivets. It is in such a company that a bag with spikes will look organic, but, for example, in romantic images, spikes are hard to imagine, even making a discount on the eclecticism of modern fashion.
# 9 Wicker
Bags woven from natural materials are comfortable and beautiful, and in the spring / summer of 2018 they will also be very fashionable. Designers who included woven handbags in their collections for the upcoming season showed how traditional crafts are in tune with modern times. Handbags with weaving elements are perfectly combined not only with folk-style images, they can harmoniously complement casual clothes, a romantic bow, and even an evening look.
Fashion bags spring-summer 2018: not all that glitters is gold

# 10 Bags with patches
The word “patch” in translation from English means “flap”, “patch”. Handbags decorated with multiple stripes with images of letters and funny pictures were repeatedly seen in the hands of models at the shows for the spring / summer season of 2018. This, of course, looks frivolous and even slightly kitsch. But who said fashion should always be serious? The appearance only wins if it is diluted from time to time with elements of the game, humor and self-irony.

# 11 Volumetric flowers
A flower is an ornament created by nature itself. Floral decor almost never goes out of fashion, in different periods it only becomes more or less relevant. As current trends show, flower decoration is again at the peak of popularity. This is reflected in the models of actual women's handbags, many of which designers decorated with voluminous colors. Fashionable floral decor looks great both on the bags of a strict, laconic form, and on voluminous soft models.

# 14 Large brand
The decor in the form of a major brand name was previously considered an element of kitsch, and now claims to be the top of the list of fashionable details. However, the first does not contradict the second, because kitsch can be treated with a fair amount of humor, and humor is always relevant.
Bags decorated with large brand names in the spring / summer season of 2018 will be very fashionable, but it is advisable that the manufacturer of the bag be directly related to the brand decorating it.
