Our bags hold our life. So when it comes to picking out the perfect carryall for our day-to-day, practicality is just as vital as style.

This Fashion Week, we saw women take the streets with their totes in tow, sporting a variety of purses that fit all the bills. There were expansive envelope clutches (with creative stickers and personalized twists); structured, luggage-style bags that made even the most casual of outfits feel elegant; and low-maintenance backpacks and fanny packs, ideal for the girl who is always on the go.

With fall right around the corner, what better way to enhance your purse collection than by pulling inspiration from the best looks we've seen on the city streets? If you're on a mission to take your bag game to the next level (because let's be honest, who isn't?), look to these 42 gorgeous numbers for some serious shopping motivation.
