Among the major styles for Fall, exotic skin handbags were an overarching trend, and one that we saw on the runways of Valentino, Chloé, Derek Lam, Gucci, and more. The best thing about these bags are their versatility; you can use one to liven up an otherwise solid look, or add depth to an ensemble that showcases mixed prints and patterns. Whether it's python, crocodile, ostrich, or completely faux, a striking skin handbag can take your Fall looks to a sexy, sophisticated new level. We've rounded up 15 of our favorites, from big ticket investment pieces to the best budget bags under $100. Click through to see and shop each one.
