You've got your turtleneck primed and ready and your coat game is on point. You're all set for the next few months, yes? Not so fast. Make sure your accessories are up to par with one of these to-die-for, of-the-moment handbags.

fall bags bucket1

the structured bucket

The bucket bag is here to stay and for good reason: It's kinda perfect. Roomy enough to fit most day-to-day needs but cooler than your massive tote, this style is a lesson in chic compromise. But before you invest in one of the expected rounded styles, consider this season's boxier update.

Get the look: Lauren Ralph Lauren ($248); Marc by Marc Jacobs ($280); Phillip Lim ($895)

fall bags fringe1

the fringe accents

Fringe is fun. It's also, as designers have proven this season, way more versatile than we expected. From clutches and satchels to shoulder bags and totes, fringe is everywhere. It's also the easiest way to spice up an otherwise straight-laced outfit. To get the most bang for your buck: Find one in a neutral color.

fall bags saddle1

the saddle bag

The equestrian-inspired saddle bag conveys effortless sophistication. Dressed up with heels or down with sneakers, we predict this baby will be in high demand for seasons to come.

the velvet clutch

Less practical than the bucket or saddle bag (but not as high-commitment as fringe), velvet is a simple way to elevate any outfit. Also? The fabric is making a buzzy comeback everywhere.

the tiny top-handle

Oh hey, Ms. Ladylike. This adorable mini carrier doesn't hold much but that's beside the point, isn't it? For a fresh take on the clutch, look to an added top-handle. 

Get the look: Ted Baker ($129); Rebecca Minkoff ($375); M2Malletier ($1,295)
