The Bag Trend of Spring 2018 that’s Everywhere

the must-have bag trend for spring 2018! - M Loves M @marmar

I’m not usually one that goes crazy for trends. For me personally, I prefer items that I can wear year after year. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve worn by fair share of trends {and you might remember some of them}, but I usually try to incorporate only the ones I absolutely love. I’ve purchased a few new bags lately {mainly affordable ones!}, and I didn’t realize until after I got home that they all have a very similar detail. Without even knowing it, I’ve already been sucked into the bag trend of spring 2018 that’s probably going to be everywhere! Any guesses?

The Bag Trend of Spring 2018 That’s Everywhere

Ring Handle Bags

Ring handle bags are everywhere, now that I’m aware of it! I love that some of these bags also allow you to hold them by the ring handle, so they’re not just for decoration. I think this round detail is one of the more unique changes I’ve seen to bags lately and I don’t mind it. Frankly, it’s nice to have a different option. The bags are modeled after ones from this designer, but I’m happy that there are several affordable options out there as well!

The Bag Trend of Spring 2018 That's Everywhere - M Loves M @marmarCan you believe this gray tote bag is under $25?! It’s 50% off and I have a feeling it will go fast. The bag was on such a great sale and I love the idea that it could double as laptop bag. If you’re looking for a new affordable bag for work, this might be the one!

    All three bags are fantastic and so trendy right now but that first, tote bag would be my 1st pick! 🙂

    • I love the tote too! Especially because of the price!

  • Rach

    I love that you found bags with ring handles and regular handles too. Definitely makes them more functional! I really love that pink clutch. So pretty!

    • I love the clutch too! I think it just sold out but hoping it comes back in stock!

  • I love all three bags; the ring handle adds so much!

  • Allegra Liu

    Definitely a fan of this ring detail, adds such a sleek touch of hardware. Loving the pearl detail on the light blue tote and oh my goodness the splurge gray Chloe bag is gorgeous!

    • I love this detial too! It makes them so fun! (and I’m totally craving that Chloe bag! It’s gooorgeous!)

  • The ring handle is definitely one of the classier trends, and I love it. I really love that fold over clutch. The colors are perfect!

    • I love the fold over clutch too!! It’s a cute one!!

  • Louis Dupond

    Beautiful and delicate outfit … also happy to see that sandals are already coming back 😉

    • yay me too!! In SoCal I feel like sandals never quite go away!

  • I actually really love that tote. I’m looking for a new bag for work and it certainly looks big enough for a laptop and agenda! Thanks for sharing.

    Gorgeous sandals Mara! It’s so pretty. 💕💕💕 I am a bag girl so I like it but I am not in love with the ring handle trend. I do like that it’s different and stand out unfortunately I am just not into this trend.

    • totally fair! It’s always interesting seeing what trends they do! I’m really excited about the straw bags for spring!

  • Actually, I love this bag trend! I’ve been eyeing the Chloe Nile for SO long, but can’t seem to pull the trigger. Maybe someday!

    • yess that Chloe bag is goooorgeous! I don’t blame you!!

  • All beautiful options, but I especially love the gray tote – so much nicer than a standard laptop bag for work, and a gorgeous color for spring!
