I have no idea what's going on. 2021 has had more plot twists in the last three months than it's had all year, so much so that I've thrown out my bingo card. I'm just going to go ahead and count on 2022 having even just a little more consistency, because the only thing that feels consistent right now is celebrities' dedication to oversized bags.

Since you can't leave the house without hand sanitizer, a handful of KN95 face masks, back-up hand sanitizer, hand moisturizer, and more face masks, the death of the mini bag and subsequent rise of the macro bag is the only thing I can predict with any certainty. Amal Clooney has famously been on the big satchel wave for a while now, and Angelina Jolie was seen toting an oversized $2,700 Salvatore Ferragamo Studio Top-Handle Bag at the D.C. airport recently, which is how I know we're about to see this trend everywhere. Jolie wore the Ferragamo with a simple black face mask, and if I had to guess, it was probably her go-to Evolvetogether (and there were likely some extra in that bag). 

Since the end of 2021 is starting to look like the beginning of 2020, it's probably worth stocking up on Hollywood's favorite masks before they sell out again, as they always do. And if you want to get a bag as big as Jolie's to fit them all in, you can get so many designer options on major sale right now at Nordstrom.

There's a best-selling Tory Burch satchel for under $300, a supersized Frame tote bag for under $125, and a large Kate Spade leather bag for under $250. Even Jennifer Aniston's go-to Rag & Bone has an option majorly marked down to just $298. If you have the funds and want to outspend Jolie, there's an incredible blue $4,500 Bottega over at Matches. And if you don't, Ganni's very large banner tote, which I'm sure will be all over Soho in a couple weeks, is a very reasonable $375.

Like variants, this trend has staying power. If you can't take your oversized bag to the airport right now, take it on a short run to the grocery store instead.
