These Are The Handbag Trends Coming With Us In 2022

With the hectic lives we’ve lived in a pandemic these past two years, it's easy to feel as though 2022 will be a repeat of what preceded it. While I can't predict what the future holds, I can guarantee that there will be plenty of exciting moments filled with unforgettable looks ahead. As we press reset, one way to head into a new year is by making space in preparation for more to come in our lives, especially in our closets. When it comes to accessories, handbags are my weakness.


I’m always keeping an eye out for new styles to add to my overflowing collection. As someone who believes a woman can never have too many bags, I’m not shy about my love for a simple yet chic affordable one. Whether micro, mini, midi, or oversized. While maintaining a low-key obsession, there are a number of styles I can’t go without in 2022. Whether you love vintage, designer or somewhere in between, there's been a number of trends that left such an impression they’ll be right alongside us throughout the new year.

From everyday shoulder bags to oversized totes, there’s a style, color and silhouette that suits everyone.

The Oversized Tote Bag Trend

This oversized shopping tote is the new statement bag perfect for a range of looks and occasions. What makes this carry-all stand out is its intricately weaved yet structured design that elevates this bag for more than just running errands around town. Paired with a sleek leather skirt and matching blazer jacket, this is the only drama I’m bringing into 2022.

The Pencil Bag Trend

Simple yet sophisticated, the pencil bag is a modern design that can be worn with anything. Big enough to fit our essential items yet small enough for a compact yet chic addition, this is one of my favorite purchases. For a mute classic, go for a neutral-colored structured shoulder bag that you’ll love wearing both day and night.

The Handle Bag Trend

The handle bag made its mark in 2021 so it’s only right that we carry it with us into the new year. I’m loving this combined style with the quilted trend, making it great for dressing up or down in your winter's finest. Whether worn with leather on leather or a sporty but chic look, this is the perfect bag fit for almost any fashion-forward occasion.

As they say, create the change you want to see in this world, besties. That’s why xoNecole linked up with Hyundai for the inaugural ItGirl 100 List, a celebration of 100 Genzennial women who aren’t afraid to pull up their own seats to the table. Across regions and industries, these women embody the essence of discovering self-value through purpose, honey! They're fierce, they’re ultra-creative, and we know they make their cities proud.

Less & Less Of Us Have Close Friends These Days. Why Is That?

German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.” At close to two decades of working with married couples, I agree with this man 1000 percent. It’s actually the main motivation for why I once penned, “Are You Sure You're Actually FRIENDS With Your Spouse?” because, the reality is, if you’re not friends with the person who you vowed to share every aspect of your life with, for the rest of your life, it’s going to be very difficult (if not damn near impossible) to honor that level of commitment. Without question, I will now and forever die on the hill that if you like your partner, you can make it through the not-so-in-love-right-now moments. Vice versa? Eh…not so much.
