6 Handbag Trends That Are Taking Over This Fall
Time to switch out your tote
We agree: Nothing beats a trusty leather carryall. That is, until you're ready to climb out of your outfit rut and mix things up a little. Here, our six favorite bag trends you're bound to spot everywhere come fall (maybe even on yourself).
Chain-Link Flap Bags
This wear-anywhere style perfectly toes the line between “Sunday brunch” and “girls’ night out” with its dressy chain strap and roomy-without-being-bulky interior. Yes, it’s a classic, but expect welcome updates to fabric color and stitching patterns just in time for the new season.
In the same vein, iconic fashion houses are taking those flap bags and getting a little crazy with the prints and appliqués. Anticipate major retailers to catch on quick with everything from floral stamps to surprising fabric combos.
Let a tiny structured satchel be your workwear wildcard this autumn. Its ladylike flair can be fun—but still has that classic silhouette. (Just be sure you can travel light, Mary Poppins.)
Say hello to the newest neutral for fall. Expect to see burgundy-hued pieces in every size, but we’re personally drooling over a large tote in the colored leather that packs the perfect amount of punch with our favorite blazer.
Metallic and Opalescent Bags
As for evening bags, summer can have its straw clutches. We've moved on to shinier things just in time for the jam-packed fall social calendar. Look out for crossbody styles to keep the trend relaxed without going overboard.
