If you're looking for timeless elegance to carry everyday, these Carolina Herrera crossbody bags, available in bright and pastel hues, are all you need. It boasts of a sophisticated look, all thanks to its statement buckle detail.
4. Mansur Gavriel
Mansur Gavriel started earning its popularity for its round leather totes, but the brand's fans now love it even more in its bucket shape (especially if it comes in a millennial pink color). The shape makes it super easy and convenient to stow away your essentials.

7. Danse Lente
Danse Lente quietly made its way into the bag collections of fashion girls like Camille Co and Liz Uy. And we can clearly see why they can't get enough of this brand. Its sleek design and minimalist aesthetic exude understated elegance.

This Parisian brand might just convince you to hop on the boxy bag trend. It's a known favorite of Heart Evangelista and Jinkee Pacquiao, and if you're an avid follower of runway trends, then you'd be glad to know that they have a bag made with PVC, too!
We're ending this roundup with the biggest bag trend we've seen online so far: the Dior Saddle bag. Its newfound popularity definitely had us lusting over the bag's reissue. It checks all the boxes: logofied, retro-inspired, and customizable.
