Trending Bag Trends of 2024

1. Bigger is Better

2024 is all about embracing grandiosity, which is why oversized bags are making a major comeback. Approved by fashion maestros Givenchy and Bottega Veneta, oversized totes are expected to be in trend throughout 2024. Say goodbye to the itty-bitty bags that you have to cram everything into and go for practical carryall bags. To meet the demands of a transient schedule - from gym to work and then an evening out—these bags are perfect.                          Large Everyday Tote Bag for Women
