16 Best list of designer handbags - which brands is popular in 2020 SS?

Spring season is around the corner. We’re not talking about the breezy clothes making way into your wardrobe (though those are much awaited as well), we’re talking about the main accessory that will get you going and complete your look. Ah, the glory of bags!

Which designer handbag is the most popular? Spring-summer 2020 runways are showcasing a slew of rather interesting bags with eye-catching prints and colors. Celebrities and influencers are already carrying these bags.  The one styling rule to stick to is – experiment. Mix and match your handbags with contrasting colors and prints. We have plenty of trends in 2020 that are perfect for making a sophisticated statement without making you feel like you're back in the 70’s or the 80’s. There’s a bag for everyone this year and it’s officially the time to start preparing your list of designer bags and carts.

From classic totes with updated stylish versions to chained crossbody bags making it into popular designer’s walks, here are 16 affordable designer bags that will underline your individuality and allow you to make a fashion statement while staying practical.


The mini bag has been popular in fashion for being large on style and small on budget. The compact appeal of these bags is hard to miss and can instantly brighten up any outfit. These small to mid-sized bags are sashaying through the streets right now and the good news is, these are not going out of style anytime soon. These fashion-girl approved and trending d summer bags are also a hit for being super Instagram worthy.


Spring 2020 is truly giving the tote bag a new life as designers are introducing fresh shapes, sizes and bag accessories, each of which celebrities are already taking quite a liking to. From slouchy totes to casual shoppers tote, this all-time-favorite bag is making a much-needed fresh debut for fashionistas who like to carry their world in their bags.

We love upgrades like broader hand-held belts, buckles, and multi-handles for a chic, neat look, when paired with solid color and formals. Moreover, with the knitted and jute totes still around the runways, you can easily create bohemian or wild west inspired looks. It’s only wise to invest in a few great totes this year!


Fashion industry’s current fascination – bucket bag gets brownie points for being so functional. It comes with a barrel shape, top drawstring closure, and shoulder strap. Showcased abundantly on the streets of NYFW 2020 to awesome runway looks, this season welcomes bucket bags in various designs and styles to choose from: cute bohemian versions, solid color leather must-haves, fun straps, etc. If you’re going for a monochrome outfit, complete with a pastel or color-blocked bucket bag and chunky boots.

Box it up

There are great ways to make boxy bags look awesome on you. From casual to formal appearances, you can go for color-blocking looks, mixed prints (we’re still loving animal prints big time), or try on jewel tone clothes. Master the see-through box shaped bag by picking the ones in which you can’t really see everything inside. Also, croc-effect is still trending. These spring, boxy bags will pair up like a dream with lightweight dresses and blouses in neutral, soft and drapey materials. Get yourself one or two…or three of these arm candies in different sizes and colors, we say.

Congratulations, you’ve survived the harshest winters and the first months of 2020. Now is the time to sit back on your couch and surf through these list of designer bags that are not just on-trend but also a match with your existing wardrobe.

Though an investment, we swear by the quality and versatility of these designer bags, they can be passed down to generations. The luxe materials and fabrics are worth the money as they add that rich element to an already trendy bag. If it gets hard to pick one among your favorites, remember you can never have too many bags!
