Splurge or Save: Fall Handbag Trends

I am definitely an accessories lover. Most of my clothes are fairly classic, and I have fun mixing up my look with shoes, jewelry, and bags.

Come spring or fall, I like to change out my bags for the season. Of course, it always fun to pick out a new handbag or two, as well!

There are some really great styles out this season. These are my favorite fall handbag trends:

  • Satchel: carry everything for work or elevate a casual look.
  • Crossbody: keep your hands free when shopping.
  • Retro-Inspired: wear with a shift dress for a sixties vibe.
  • Foldover: dress up jeans and a tee or carry it on a night out.
  • Backpack: sling this nineties throwback over one shoulder and go.

I’ve rounded up a favorite for each of these trends: one affordable and one a little pricier. Choose whether you want to splurge or save!

Bags and coats are my weakness! As a stylist, I believe that a great handbag and an awesome coat can camouflage a bad outfit. This is a great collection Ginnie. I especially like numbers 2 and 10 by Sole Society.

Oh I love the satchel style! They are hard to resist…I guess it’s a good thing I don’t have room for many than a few!
