Forget The Micro Purse — The Oversized Bag Trend Proves Bigger Is Better

A must for fashion girls on the go.


The past few seasons have celebrated teeny-tiny mini purses (remember Lizzo’s microscopic Valentino satchel from the 2019 AMAs?). But the consensus for fall 2022? Go big or go home. Get a head start on the supersized trend by shopping TZR’s edit of the market’s best oversized bags.

Per the lineup of trending handbag silhouettes, irregular is in. HEREU’s Ventall Tote perfectly encapsulates the buzzy look in that it’s unique without veering into “Is that a bag or an art piece?” territory.
The Row’s textured tote is the ideal option if you’re heading out in the morning for a fully scheduled day that doesn't allot for pitstops at home. It’ll hold your phone, a water bottle, a book — even a change of clothes if needed.

Large Osa Tote Bag
When Khaite describes its Osa bag as ‘large’ — it means it. At 31 inches long and 19.75 inches wide, this bad boy is as big as tote can get while remaining wearable.

As evidenced by sustainable handbag brand behno, gargantuan silhouettes aren’t just for totes and satchels. This large baguette bag feels like something Carrie Bradshaw would graduate to if she ever felt the need to level up from her classic Fendi style.
