5 Handbag Trends To Know This Fall

In a season when your coat often covers up the rest of your outfit, the right bag can make all the difference. It’s one of the first pieces people will see when you walk into a room and one of the last when you leave. So once you’ve got your outerwear all sorted, it’s time to shift focus towards what you’ll be carrying every day.

Sure, you might still be hesitant to let go of that perfect basket bag or mini crossbody you used all summer long, but now that the weather’s changing, it’s time the silhouette you’re using does, too. No longer are your days spent worrying about the next time you’ll go to the beach — Q4 is crazy at work, you’ve got a few travel plans lined up, and there are plenty of holiday parties in your horizon. That’s why you need a bag to match.

Whether it’s a sleek tote or a itty-bitty pouch bag, click on for the five styles that should be making an appearance in your fall wardrobe. The picks ahead are sure to be the double-tap worthy focal point of your outfits from now through the new year.


The Drawstring Pouch

Consider this the more polished, grown-up version of that nylon drawstring backpack you carried your gym clothes in during high school. To make it feel more formal (but not too dressed up), we suggest gravitating towards metallics, embellishments, or pleated fabrics to give this little pouch an unexpected twist.
