When you invest in a handbag, chances are you wear it to absolute death. Sometimes, after weeks (or months!) of toting your go-to crossbody or satchel, you don’t even want to know what lies at the bottom of that black hole. And unfortunately, the less expensive bags also start to fall apart at the seams — handles unravel, zippers and buttons break, and the shape gets all sorts of wonky. Needless to say, bag fatigue is a harsh reality — I can’t even bear to lay eyes on the shearling tote I carried all of last fall and winter, I’m just that sick of it. So the new season is the perfect time to refresh this essential part of your wardrobe.
It may not be time quite yet to swap your tanks and shorts for scarves and sweaters, but it is time to start thinking about quick ways to revamp your look for fall. And the easiest way to do that is with a killer on-trend bag for fall.
From structured shapes to mixed materials, fall's bold bag trends should be embraced with open arms. Not only are they practical, but they can even take the laziest girls’ everyday jeans-and-a-tee outfit to the next level. Read on for the 5 major bag trends headed your way, and feel out which one is right for your style.
