1. The chain-link shoulder bag
2016 is the year of the chain-link strap, specifically the Gucci Dionysus. The Dionysus has received a lot of attention from fashion bloggers and celebrities and is definitely one of the most popular bags of 2016. Chanel has also introduced a Metallic Chain flap bag with a much chunkier chain than its classic sisters.

2. The micro bag
Basically every major fashion house has introduced it's own miro it-bag, from the Fendi Peekaboo to the entire nano collection by Louis Vuitton. While the micro bag might be the least functional bag you'll ever own, it's absolutely the cutest. Pick a stand-out color or embellishments. A micro bag in punching pink or a sequin covered one is perfect as the little eye-catcher to any outfit.

3. The top-handle lady bag 
The last seasons we've seen a big revival of the seventies decade. With this new trend comes the top-handle lady bag. Especially pieces in classic and warm colors with a clean structure are the best picks for 2016. Examples are the Diorever tote, the Mansur Gavriel mini Lady bag, the Gucci Sylvie bag, the Louis Vuitton Normandy bag and of course a lot of Hermès pieces.

4. The structured backpack
Backpacks have been making waves in high fashion these days. Many designer brands are introducing backpacks, such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton, and they're all met with extreme enthusiasm. The backpack of 2016 will be a structured version such as the Givenchy Pandora backpack, the Alexander Wang Prisma backpack and the Balenciaga Le Dix backpack.

5. The tassel bag 
The tassel bag is perfectly in line with the bohemian seventies vibe that has been taking over the runway. A tassel bag usually works best in a neutral or classic color as the design itself is fussy enough. One of our favorite tassel bags is the Chloé Hudson Fringe.
