The Bag Trends You Need To Know This Summer, According To Zara’s New Arrivals


When it comes to nailing the next big trend in fashion, no one does it quite like Zara. The major retailer has a way of spotting particular styles before they become full-blown crazes — and in a way that seamlessly takes them from the runway to your closet, too. With that in mind, it comes as no surprise that Zara has already tackled the summer 2019 bag trends in its latest arrivals.

Whether you first saw them on the Spring/Summer 2019 runways or your favorite fashion girls, there’s no doubt that a few key trends have stolen the hearts of the fashion world — and Zara’s getting on board. The brand’s new arrivals section is chock-full of these looks with their latest bags, and they’re bound to be head-turners.

From season-specific details such as fringe and woven leather to year-round trends like structured silhouettes and animal prints, these bags are the perfect way to add a summer trend to your ensembles. Ahead, here are the five bag trends you’ll be wearing every day this season.

Fringe Embellishments

As a staple among old-school western wear, fringe has come full circle in the form of the updated and It girl-approved fringe jackets you saw earlier this season. For summer, if you want to carry the trend in a slightly subtler fashion, sport the $149 Feathered Leather Bucket Bag on your next night out. For your daytime affairs, you can't go wrong with the Fringed Fabric Shopper, which is available for $69.90.

Structured Silhouettes

If you’re looking for a bag you can wear everyday, a boxy purse will feel both modern and polished. Seen on the runways of designers like Marc Jacobs and Rejina Pyo, these architectural mid-size bags easily make a statement without overpowering the rest of your look. The neutral-hued Animal-Embossed Baguette, $49.90, will easily go with anything you wear.

Animal Print

It’s clear that the animal print movement has become stronger than ever before, with new and unexpected prints taking the spotlight as pattern of the moment. That said, both the Animal Print Mini Bag and Animal Print Box Bag, which both cost $39.90, prove that this classic trend is taking on a colorful approach for summer.

Woven Leather

Let’s be honest: Nothing says summer like a woven handbag, and for 2019, they’ve become chicer than ever. Between structured clutches like the $149 Woven Leather Mini Crossbody Bag, and more relaxed options like the $99.90 Woven Leather Mini Shopper, these will easily become your go-to options for the season.


Glittering bags — whether they feature sparkling beads or flashy sequins — have been making their way to the surface of the fashion industry’s radar over the past year. And for summer, they’re about to be everywhere. Once reserved for nights out on the town, you can incorporate the Metallic Mini Shopper, $49.90, into your everyday outfits for an eye-catching accent piece.
