If you’re into luxury fashion, I’m sure you’ve seen everybody and their cousin rocking these popular looks in 2017. While they are gorgeous to look at, will they still be hot in 2018? Will you get your money’s worth? Let’s discuss!

First of all, Gucci has really made a comeback in all three categories discussed in this post including Footwear, Handbags and Accessories.

Footwear

Gucci

The Gucci pool slides. Although it’s very cold outside, these are still sizzling hot! People are buying them now and saving them for summer!

The Gucci Princetown mules with or without the fur. I KNOW I will see the furless ones come summer.

I predict the Gucci footwear will stay

Valentino Garavani

Valentino Rockstuds which come in a variety of colors and heel heights. These have been around since 2010 and I don’t see them going away anytime soon.

Valentino Rockstud slides. I’m certain these will be poolside come Summer 2018.


Rockstud Jellies. Yes, these too!

Stuart Weitzman

The Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots are the bees knees! They come in different colors and heel heights. Many stores had them on sale for Black Friday. They are definitely a great investment for many Winters to come.

Handbags

Gucci

The Gucci Soho Disco bag has been popular for years now. Some of the past colors are no longer available on the website. Popular in 2018? Yes!!!

The Gucci Marmont bag is definitely all the rage. The chain strap slides and lengthens enough to wear cross body. Critics wouldn’t stop talking about the heart on the backside. I think it’s adorable but perhaps a bit too cute for such a serious price point? No! I find it quite charming and whimsical! Regardless, I predict this will become a Gucci classic.

Louis Vuitton

The famous LV Pochette Metis is the coveted bag again for 2017; So much so that the Monogram Canvas print is currently unavailable on-line and in the boutiques. Rumor has it that LV is decreasing the amount of canvas prints in the stores. I’m certain it will continue to be popular mainly due to the increase in popular demand.

Following the bucket bag trend, this remake of the classic Noe which was originally made to hold 5 bottles of champagne, will predictably be popular in 2018. Dust off your vintage Noe bags ladies because they are back in style. Don’t forget about the preloved market if you don’t have a vintage Noe. The Neonoe is becoming difficult to find on the website and in boutiques.

Celine

The Celine Luggage Phantom bag was still popular in 2017 due to its distinctive shape and exquisite design. I believe it is a true work of art. Considering dupes of all of their luggage bags are popping up on the highstreets, it probably will continue to stick around for at least a few more years.

Chloe

Of all the popular Chloe bags which include the Drew, Faye, Marcie and Nile, The Chloe Nile bag with its “bracelet” feature is my absolute FAVORITE. This bag can be worn cross body with its leather strap or on the wrist with its bracelet handle. I predict it will continue to be popular and maybe even iconic. I HAVE to add this to my collection for 2018!

Accessories

Gucci

The Gucci belt with the double G buckle! Seen on Instagram, YouTubers and regular people all over the place. Wasn’t there an early 90s version that was popular too? I fondly remember clowning my friends who jumped on this pretentious bandwagon. I’ll admit that it is definitely eye catching. It’ll stay for 2018!

It’s baaaack! Yes, the fanny pack which now is called a belt bag. I suppose it’s a hybrid between a handbag and an accessory. Nearly all of the major luxury brands including Chanel have their versions. Since Gucci is on fire this year, of course their GG Marmont matelasse leather belt bag version would made the most popular list.

Bag Charms

There are so many designers of these bag charms that I had difficulty choosing which to feature. I included the above Burberry and Laduree charms that I saw on my Holiday NYC trip. I love Tory Burch’s heart-shaped pom poms too. I have to admit that my inner fabulous child has gone crazy over bag charms. I mean you can go to any high end boutique such as Louis Vuitton and Fendi and find a vast selection. They are in the contemporary high street boutiques such as Kate Spade and Michael Kors. Don’t forget about Claire’s, Ebay, Etsy and even Walmart! I don’t care if they go out of style, I will continue to put these on my high end bags and backpacks.

Okay, so I know I missed some others but I at least hit the high points. If you think I missed some major hotties, comment below!
