I try to switch my bag up every season, but I normally end up doing it more frequently – I have somewhat of a handbag obsession! If you’re looking for a new bag (or two, or three…) for fall, check out my top 5 handbag picks this season.
1. Wild Prints
While definitely not for the faint of heart, handbags with animal prints, geometric shapes, loud colors and funky designs are a huge hit for fall. This particular hobo bag, available in zebra or leopard print, is roomy enough to hold all of your essentials and then some. Plus, the attached coin purse makes it easy to find exact change without having to dig through the bottom of your bag !
Whether on a clutch or a shoulder bag, fringe seems to be one of the hottest handbag trends for fall. This sturdy bag from Etienne Aigner takes inspiration from retro 1970’s style, and is made from glazed leather with suede trim. Brass metal hardware completes the look. Plus, five interior pockets means this bag has plenty of room to neatly organize everything you need.
This gorgeous wallet from Charlotte Russe has an all-over pattern of (faux) snakeskin, and because it’s oversized it would work great as a clutch when you just need to carry around your i.d., credit cards, change and a lipstick. If you’ve always wanted a snakeskin bag but were too afraid to take the plunge, this wallet adds just enough oomph to your ensemble without going overboard. Plus, you can’t beat the price!

4. Bucket Bags
Bucket bags are very popular this season, and even the simplest design is oh-so-stylish. Take this bag from J. Crew, for instance. The gorgeous pebbled leather, must-have detachable strap and gold metal detailing make this bag absolutely irresistible. Don’t be surprised if it becomes your go-to bag this season! Available in true black, henna (a mustard-y yellow) and warm burgundy.
For those who like to walk a little on the wilder side of life, this edgy handbag is the perfect accessory this season. A multitude of studs, chunky chain strap and fierce styling all combine on this cross-body bag to for the perfect edgy accessory for fall. Plus, an interior zip pocket means you can keep the items you’ll need on a moment’s notice safe and secure.
