Fall is just around the corner, and as much as I love summer, part of me can’t wait to whip out my cozy sweaters, suede jackets and booties! Beyond the usual style staples, Fall is another great time to invest in a new handbag. Working in handbags for the last year and a half, I’ve come pretty close to the industry when it comes to spotting trends and the next “it” bag. With several exciting trends, fresh colors and fabrications, there is so much newness in the handbag market right now which makes it the perfect time to snag a new bag to take your fall outfits to the next level. This season it is all about sleek and chic, so in todays post I wanted to share with you guys the 5 handbags that may just reserve a spot in my wardrobe!
The Slouchy Clutch
Elegance with edge, this simple bag is the easiest grab and go style to make a statement. Available in small or large silhouettes, this bag takes a basic outfit straight from zero to ten! I love the look of wearing this bag tucked under your arm with a blazer for a true “power” style.
The Chain Shoulder
If you like the look of the above style, you might just LOVE this chain shoulder bag. Taking the same silhouette from the above clutch, this shoulder bag adds a thick chain for the ultimate style statement. Throw on over your shoulder or wear draped on your arm – either way, you’re bound to turn heads with this trendy piece.
The Quilted Satchel
Quilting is always in style (thank you, Chanel!) which is what makes this satchel a must-have. If you’re looking for a bag that is not only on trend but also timeless, this is the bag for you. I’ve owned a quilted satchel since my high school days and even now, still find myself gravitating towards a quilted satchel. What can I say, it’s timeless!
Woven Detail Bags
This bag is really all about the details. Otherwise simple and sleek, the woven details of this bag really make it pop.
The Travel Tote
Traveling looks slightly different these days, but you should never have to sacrifice style or function when it comes to having the perfect travel tote. Whether you’re hopping on a plane or taking a weekend road trip, these totes combine style with function (we’re talking pockets galore!).
When was the last time you treated yourself to a new handbag? I am definitely very particular when it comes so finding styles that I love while also not breaking the bank. When it comes to trendy handbags, I always stick to under $50 as trends do come and go which is what makes these styles so great! However, I think that when you’re looking for a timeless bag that will hold it’s value, it is definitely worth investing in and spending a little bit more.
