Prepare To See These 10 Bag Trends Everywhere Come 2019

A new boot trend hits stores on a near-weekly basis. Yet another animal print takes over Instagram with practically every refresh. But why is it that one bag gains a little hype and we must wait months, sometimes years, to get a different, fresher option? Don't get us wrong, beaded bags and fanny packs are a definite wardrobe staple. But even the best things start to feel a little stale after a while. In other words, we're ready for a few bag trends that we haven't seen.
Thankfully, it seems designers are as restless as we are. From chain link mini bags to purses that resemble Chinese takeout containers, we're doing a deep dive into this winter's biggest bag trends. So, before you settle for last season's recycled trends, let us introduce you to 2019's most sought-after purse collection.
Take a look at the 10 new bag styles we're betting big on this winter. And remember, trends like these don't come around often, so we suggest snagging one (or three) before they all sell out.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

Out Of The Safari & Onto The Farm
We may have predicted a safari-themed spring ahead, but for now, we're very much living the farm life. From cow print bucket bags to spotted calf hair crossbody bags, there's no shortage of cow-themed purses for you to collect for the time being.

Borrowed From Grandma
Other than strict manners and one hell of a chocolate chip cookie recipe, the best thing our grandmas shared with us was a massive collection of vintage handbags. From patent styles to carpet-like embroidered bags, we're taking a cue from grandmothers everywhere this winter.
