These Messenger Style Bags Are The Season’s Hottest Accessory

When we say messenger style bags are trending this fall season, we don’t mean the standard messenger bag you’re picturing in your head. While normally the style is notoriously known to carry around items like laptops and other work essentials, this season is welcoming in some new versions. Whether small or big, top-handle or shoulder—there are a million ways to wear modern style messengers. Better yet, they’re pretty easy to style together with dresses in particular. If you’re especially looking for more room in your handbag, you might just be surprised with what this style has to offer. And luckily, you don’t have to just stick with the traditional version of the bag. 2022 has brought us a new meaning to messenger style bags, and we’re certainly stocking up on a couple!

No Time For Style

The Modern Version Of Messenger Style Bags

As mentioned, the modern messenger style bag is not all that you think it is. Rather dull and everything but stylish, the traditional style is the last piece we’re adding to our wardrobe. Luckily, the same style is possible amongst others, making it a great fall ’22 addition. If you’re looking for more space to bring more out with you, you might love the GUCCI Mini Ophidia Gg Shoulder Bag. Similarly, the ISABEL MARANT Leather Satchel Bag is quite large for its style, making it a great go-to bag. And just because these two options bring a ton of space, they still have a lot of style to offer. More importantly, they’re far from your average messenger style bags, but a modern, elevated version you won’t want to put down.
