The handbag is one of those fashion items that a woman can never have too many of in her closet. Handbags change with each season and now that fall is here, it’s high time to switch things up – yet again! With so many different sizes, materials, silhouettes, designers, etc. it’s sometimes hard to know where to begin. So, instead of overwhelming you with endless options, we have narrowed it down to 10 must-have handbag trends for this fall season. You’re sure to love one of them!
If you’re a woman on-the-go – which most of you reading this probably are – a tote, top-handle satchel, structured or bowler bag will be the perfect match. These types of bags are practical because they can carry all the essentials…and then some, and can polish off any outfit by making a sophisticated statement. Did we mention Serena Van Der Woodsen’s classic Burberry “Orchard” bag in oxblood and navy (blackcurrant/plum) equine stripes? How elegant is her suede bag? You’ll be seeing it soon on Gossip Girl, not to worry!
A crossbody or bucket bag is perfect for days when you don’t want to be weighed down. They’re also great for transitioning to night, as you won’t be hindered by them or worried about forgetting them in the bar. Clutches will always be in style, but this fall try an oversized clutch for added drama.
The oversized look adds more sophistication to an ensemble. Plus, it’s not reserved strictly for evening wear, it’s also stylish and allowed for day. For some trendier options this fall, we suggest bags with tassels, colorblocking, shades of oxblood (which is simply just another fancier way to say burgundy, bordeaux, or maroon), and embossed with something exotic or reptile.
Below are our 11 “it” handbag picks based on the most exciting fall 2012 trends. Both practical and stylish, you can’t go wrong with any of these. And, you certainly won’t want to pick just one!
