As fall draws closer and closer it’s only natural to start to flip through your wardrobe and prepare for the change in season. While there are always new styles and trends in clothing, accessories shouldn’t be forgotten about.
If you’re looking to pick up something new for fall why not go with one of the season’s top five must-have bags for women. There are a variety of sizes, styles, and materials to choose from which means there is bound to be at least one that fits your budget and tastes.
Here’s a look at the top five must-have bags for this autumn season:
1. Oversized Bag or Carryall
Women who tend to need that extra space in their purse will appreciate the fact that oversized totes, bags, and carryalls are once again in style for fall. This is a trend that seems to just keep coming back, probably because it is so versatile. Whether you prefer a more defined shape or something a bit less restrictive such as a slouchy bag, these purses are perfect for the women on the go.
As for the materials, leather bags are trendy and popular in terms of oversized bags. Opt for warm neutrals such as brown, camel, and rust if you want to be ultra-trendy.
2. Animal Print Bags
This next purse isn’t so much a particular shape, style, or size rather it is all about the print. Animal print is making a huge splash on all the top runways, which means it’s time to find your favourite animal print out there. What’s fun about this print is that it often acts as a neutral colour, so you can pair it with various outfits, jackets, and shoes and still look put together.
If you want to take the trend to the next level, look for an animal print bag that has texture to it. This provides that extra element of style and flair.
3. Box-Shaped Purses
Another big trend that is popping up is purses that have a boxy design to them. These structured bags have a look of elegance and sophistication to them and can go from the office to a night out on town. They have a more traditional vibe about them, that can almost feel a bit too stuffy for some. If you want to give this trend a try but don’t want to come off too traditional, pick a bag that has an interesting design or use of various materials. By doing this the purse will come off more modern and almost cutting-edge.
4. The Return of the Knapsack
Remember when knapsacks were all the rage, and we aren’t just talking with students? Well it seems as though knapsacks are ready to have another moment as these are one of the “it bags” for fall 2018. Think smaller, more compact and stylish versions of the traditional knapsack though. Opt for popular materials such as leather, suede, and patent leather.
5. Necklace Purses
While this next trend isn’t always going to be practical, it is definitely high fashion. Necklace purses are one of the hottest fall trends at the moment, and not just in terms of handbags and accessories. These small purses hang from your neck and have just enough room for money, a key, and credit card. This style can work for a night out on the town when you plan to do a lot of dancing and want to be hands-free.
Before you do a total overhaul of your fall wardrobe, you may want to start by taking a close look at your accessories, in particular the purses you have.
