Best Bags For Fall

Best Bags For Fall

The Vogue September issue is mere weeks away; and like the start of a new school year for kids, the gargantuan Fall issue signals a new season for fashion.

But it’s not just the clothes we can’t wait for; autumn also ushers in the new handbags that go with them.

The trends for F/ W 2016 to keep your eyes on are:

  • VELVET

Not your everyday carry and not one to invest a lot of money in, but a velvet bag adds an aura of luxe and softness.

  • FUR

Real fur never fails to up the sophistication ante.

  • SADDLE BAGS

Get a good one and you’ll have it forever. A workhorse in your wardrobe.

  • CLUTCHES

Even when bags have handles, straps, chains (often all three at once), bags were clutched in the hand for tactile delight.

  • CROSS-BODY

The trend continues and looks especially fabulous slung across a pink fur.
