    So, which bag trends can we expect to see for spring/summer 2019? Well, if, like me, you’re a big fan of cute bags, you’ll be pleased to hear the trend isn’t going anywhere, in fact, it’s gaining momentum.

    At Oscar de la Renta, models carried micro bags aplenty, from tasseled orbs to adorable mini birdcages, while you’ll be lucky to fit in an iPhone XS in the tiny box bags at Brandon Maxwell or Zimmermann, though of course that’s not the point.

    But if you’re not fan of the micro bag, then the oversized is for you. Proenza Schouler had bags big enough to fit your entire life and then some.

    Cushnie, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Coach all carried on championing the Western trend with fringes and tassels to go with those faux snake print boots you’ll be investing in this winter.

    For something a little more feminine, look to Marc Jacobs, Mansur Gavriel and Kate Spade for ladylike bags with serious 50s pastel vibes.
