Season after season, there is always a trend that manages to come back into the fray and surprise us. This is the case with the return of a specific handbag trend: fringed bags. For context, fringe was a key trend in the Spring/Summer 2022 collections. Fringe played a dominant role in the collections of Alaïa and Proenza Schouler, as they sent dresses with car wash fringe on the track. Of course, rocking a head-to-toe fringe look isn’t for everyone, so the next best thing is fringe bags. What’s great about the return of this once outdated handbag trend is that it’s the easiest way to get back into the idea of wearing fringe. Moreover, the new iterations of this trend are much more chic than their predecessors. (Think of the clichés of boho-inspired fringe bags that dominated in the mid-2000s.) Recent iterations focus on unconventional materials, shapes and colors to create truly unique pieces.
Not convinced that this comeback is for you? Ahead, I’ve rounded up the 34 best fringe bags at any price point to buy right now. If these bags don’t make you a fan of bangs, you never will.
