Micro-bags are out, supersized purses are in.

"Bigger is better" is seemingly the motto when it comes to handbags this season. As much as we enjoyed every last bit of carrying itty-bitty micro-bags over the last few years, luxury designers are thinking big again with supersized purses. Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta, and Chloe were just some of the few fashion houses that sent reimagined jumbo silhouettes down the runways during Spring/Summer 2023, and now It-Girls around the globe are catching on to the trend. Everywhere you look on the streets or scroll on social media, there's an influencer or a stylish star lugging around a Mary Poppins-esque style.

The reintroduction of big bags into the trend cycle makes sense when you think about it: they're practical in that they can basically hold everything under the sun, convenient as heck, and reliable when you're on the go. Oh and if you're traveling? Even better—they make great personal item bags. All of this to say: this is one spring fashion trend we're expecting to stick around for a while. From leather totes to raffia hobos to beach bags, here are our favorite big bags to carry now and forever.

This YSL shopper counts Zoë Kravitz and Angelina Jolie among some of its famous fans—but that's not even half of it. Between the slouchy silhouette and the roomy interior, it's a workhorse bag for sure.

Go bespoke with Dior's sturdy tote, which can be personalized with your name, phrase, or lucky number of choice.

Big bags are cool as is, but when it has geometric handles and an unexpected shape? That's just about the trendiest purse imaginable.

This relaxed chained shopper is cool and classic, and most importantly, will come to the rescue when you have a ton to carry with you.

Bottega Veneta's beloved Jodie bag, but in crossbody form? You need it.

Tory Burch's cult-favorite Ella tote recently got an upgrade for SS23 with a plant-based leather alternative. It's just as luxurious as the original and is incredibly durable and lightweight, so you can throw your life inside without having to deal with aching shoulders. Oh, we're calling it: that buttercream hue is going to be the perfect complement to all your spring/summer outfits.

With chic color-blocking and a bucket-style silhouette, everything about this bag screams Parisian elegance. Wear in the crook of your arms to really fit the part.

One thing's for sure, this super-sized raffia hobo will be tagging along with you to all your visits to the farmer's market, brunch dates, and beyond throughout the warmer months.

Sleek, classic, and elegant, this is a bag you'll have in heavy rotation for years to come. Bonus points for the organization-friendly interior.

A big black carryall will always be a wardrobe staple, no matter the time of year.

Everyone needs a reliable bag they can sling over their shoulder at a moments notice. This leather shopper from Madewell is that bag.
