Trends tend to come and go and sometimes we revisit trends which may have been off the radar for decades at a time. I remember attaching keychains, pom-poms and charms to my backpack in the 90’s and if you’ve been paying any attention to the latest in handbag fashion, you would’ve noticed the return of the handbag accessory trend.
World-renowned designers are displaying retro handbag accessories on the runway, giving this 90’s throwback a fresh appearance.
We’ve listed the most popular handbag accessories to provide you with fantastic shopping inspiration:
- Feather Keychain
With the latest burst of bohemian fashion on the pop-culture scene, it’s no surprise that feather keychains are all the new rage.
Colourful, metallic, beaded, realistic, there are so many variations of this accessory that you are bound to find one that you love!
Faux fur pom-poms are a serious throwback, which can be spotted on more than just handbags.
Hats, shoes and various clothing items are seen boasting this revived fashion trend.
If you want to re-live your playful fashion days, this accessory is the one for you.
- Designer Keychains
Of course, the big names in fashion, have to cash in on all the latest in handbag trends allowing us to purchase keychains
with various designer’s brand names and logos on them. Definitely the most expensive of the handbag accessories but a collector’s item for any fashionista.
Tasseled accessories are a 70’s revival and they are back in a big way.
You can find tassels on everything, including but not limited to: handbags, keychains, jewelry, shoes and clothing.
We’re all about boho chic, so we’ve got a feeling that this trend will be here for a while.
- Decorative Straps
Yet another must-have accessory to add to your arsenal. Not only are these interchangeable straps fun to look at,
they are actually super functional, allowing you to find the perfect strap for your bag, rather than being restricted to the standard strap.
There are so many variations ranging from dainty chains, to bold guitar straps with patterns and textures that will completely change your outfit and give that old bag a face-lift!
6. Silk Scarves
Scarves are now not only for keeping your neck warm, protected from the sun or simply fashionable...
They are also the latest cute accessory to handbags! Scarves that come with handbags are usually silk with a beautiful pattern or print.
They can either be wrapped around the handles, which will keep them clean, or they can be tied around any part of the handbag.
In our opinion, this is an easy way to change the entire look of your plain and ordinary handbag.
Someone once said that you can tell a lot about a woman by looking at her handbag… What will your handbag say about you?
Happy shopping xx
