Bag Trends Spring / Summer 2005

Ah yes, after I had featured a few key trends for spring/summer 2005, how could it not be time to finally feature bags? This season, big bags are in, (thank goodness. I mean, how did you ever fit everything you need in a tiny bag?) The big bags are part of the world-trotting trend this year, (such as bohemian luxe, safari, holiday themes.) Hobo bags continue to be fashionable this year, but some are different in terms of style and colors. Here are some selections that can be worn with any daytime outfits (and some night wear.):

by Chloe

The IT bag of the season: Chloe leather paddington bag. It goes with ALL the trends this year, and would definately be wanted by all the fashionistas this season.

by Chloe

A lovely bag which I love from Chloe this season. Its perfect for the rich girl traveling around the globe. Well, and also good for going out everyday.

by Burberry

The Burberry Prorsum bag featured in the ads and heavily campaigned on this year. The two pockets and extra long straps give a more casual bohhemian luxe feel to the bag. Oh, and did I mention that this kind of woven handles are seen in a lot of bags this season? Make sure you look out for them.

by Coach

A fabulous hobo bags. Notice that the hobo bags have evoled from the bent shape to this slouchy square shape.

by Anthropologie

Another lovely evolved hobo.

by Urban Outfitters

A classical hobo bag perfect for a shopping spree and a day in the city.

by American Eagle

Notice the floral patterns, which is an important trend this year (thanks to Burberry.) An excellent tote for all casual occasions, such as going to the gym, the beach, to school...

Faithful sling bag from &

This metallic comfortable hobo was seen on Cameraon Diaz and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Need I say more about how nice it is?

by Gucci

Rememer to check out Gucci on your next shopping trip. Gucci is offering a lot of excellent choices that can serve multi-purpose (day & night), luxe looking, and even go with the posh holiday theme.
