15 Big Bags To Buy In 2024 To Take Part In The Hot New Trend

The new year is here, and so are new fashion trends. From February’s extra day to the upcoming presidential election in the fall, it goes without saying that 2024 is going to be a big year. With big years come even bigger bags. No outfit is complete without a purse. Why not wear a bag large enough to fit your Stanley cup, hoodie, laptop, headphones, and book of the month all at once? Hello, oversized totes and chunky handbags!

International fashion company Who What Wear included large bags as one of 2024’s newest fashion trends in a recent Instagram post. TikTok Shop is already on top of this trend, with creators like Janey Ricacelle showing off how many items she can fit in her “Carry My Life” tote bag, which has received over 5 million views. Big bags are quickly proving to be extremely versatile and stylish. Whether you use one for school, work, the gym, or the beach, you can guarantee you’ll be looking organized and trendy. 

Don’t worry my fellow purse enthusiasts, I’ve got you! I’ve curated a list of 15 big bags in a variety of different colors that you can match with specific outfits and wear as a statement piece this year.
