As we hang up our slouchy woven and canvas bags and eye the Fall handbag bounty, we're reaching for bags that touch on all of our favorite trends. This season, the shapes are smaller, structured, ladylike — and most importantly, make us entirely more efficient with on-the-go crossbody styles. As for the details and finishes, hands-free, smaller satchels are textured and embossed, darker in rich berry and shades of midnight blue, and come on chains or classic leather straps. To make your Fall shopping just a little easier, we've curated our top 25 picks at every price point. Before you click through, keep these key takeaways in mind:
- Invest in a classic leather saddle bag in a rich brown or berry color. This will become your neutral, everyday bag that you can wear with everything from '70s denim to your midi skirts and Fall dresses.
- Look for subtly luxe details like embossed snakeskin, leopard calf-hair, or chainstraps for a day-to-night style.
- Opt for midnight blue bags as an alternative to black; they'll add more interest and dimension to your look.
