The Designer Bags On My Wish List For 2022


fashion blogger wearing a camel cape and paris texas boots for fallLast year, I shared this post on the best designer bags to invest in, and I had gotten such great feedback on it that I decided to do another one for 2022! The start of a new year is typically the best time to reflect on your wardrobe and think about the pieces that you really want to invest in. If you’ve been saving for a while, there are definitely a few things you should consider before making the jump. I always like to think about how much wear I’ll get out of it – and how well the item will retain its value. I’ll sometimes be a little more flexible on the value aspect if something really brings me joy and I know I’ll use it for a long time. If you’re wondering what those bags are for me right now, keep scrolling for the 8 pieces on my wish list. I also include more affordable dupes for each of my top picks too.

Kelly Mini

Here's one of the most desirable bags on the market right now. I just love the lady-like look and sleek structure. It's seriously the apex of designer bags.

Tory Burch

Kelly Dupe

The Hermes Kelly is super exclusive and insanely priced. Luckily, there's this Tory Burch one that gives you the look for significantly less!

Triomphe Shoulder Bag

If you're looking for something chic, practical, and timeless, this bag is it! It's been everywhere lately and I have to admit, it's growing on me.

Triomphe Dupe

This luxe shoulder bag reminds me so much of the Celine one except it's way more affordable. I love the archival logo clasp.

Cleo Mini Bag

I'm all about investing in pieces that stand out from everything else in your collection. The curved edges on this are so fun - and great for night outs.

By Far

Cleo Dupe

With the Prada bag being so new, there aren't any pieces like it. This By Far one comes closest.

Shearling Tote

I've had my eyes on this bag forever! It can hold so much, making it the perfect companion for all your winter travels.

Marc Jacobs

Tote Dupe

If you want the same cozy vibe of the Chloe tote, this Marc Jacobs bag won't disappoint. It also comes in an all-over beige shearling texture, which is sold out everywhere.

Saint Laurent

Niki Shoulder Bag

Here's the best designer bag if you want something pared back but still luxe and high in quality. I love how the logo blends in with the bag.

Niki Dupe

It was a pleasant surprise to stumble upon this under $100 bag. It has the same aged finish and flap design as the Saint Laurent Niki.

Bucket Bag

I'm already thinking about spring and summer bags - and here's one that I bet will sell out fast. It'd be so cute styled with summer dresses.

Clare V

Bucket Bag Dupe

This bag delivers the same quaint, carefree look as the Chloe bag.

Bottega Veneta

Jodie Mini Bag

This bag in the woven texture is so iconic, especially with the round shape. It catches the eye every single time.

Melie Bianco

Jodie Dupe

The texture on this bag is similar to Bottega's intrecciato - and adds a touch of luxury to every outfit.

Louis Vuitton

Petite Malle Souple

I'm obsessed with the trunk-inspired design of this bag. It's so unique and unlike anything else on the market.
