For us ladies, the perfect handbag has to speak to our personal style as well serve as a form of self-expression, right? That’s why we have different handbags for different seasons.
No matter your personal taste or style preferences, handbags are arguably the most important part of every ensemble—both functionally and aesthetically. Though bag styles change from season to season, we’ve been trend-watching for our new fall favorites. Common textures like suede and leather are always safe bets, but 2021’s fall handbag trends include some surprisingly fun picks in the mix as well.
And this fall season, here are some of my personal favorites I’m enjoying purses that I’m sure that you would love to have to match your fall outfits!
Gilda Super Mini Crystal-Embellished Leather Tote – Amina Muaddi
Amina Muaddi’s ‘Gilda’ tote is every bit as glamorous as the label’s signature martini-heeled pumps. Supermini in size, this boxy bag has been made in Italy from smooth pink leather. It’s embellished with light-catching crystals at the straps and a silver logo plaque.
A head-to-toe look is something that always feels sophisticated and pulled together. Make it happen by pairing your hot-pink bag with an equally stunning dress and shoes.
Goya Bag – Loewe
Loewe has just welcomed a new family of bags to its accessory lineup. Dubbed “Goya” the line of bags arrives in saturated colors and featuring a minimal design. The Goya debuted as part of Loewe’s Fall/Winter 2021 womenswear runway collection and sports Loewe’s recognizable anagram logo atop a full calfskin construction.
There’s nothing like a daily fix of designer fashion, so we love a bag that we can wear everywhere. We predict this sophisticated silhouette by Loewe to quickly become the next It bag so act fast.
Green Pouch Mini Leather Cross-Body Bag – Bottega Veneta
Bottega Veneta’s green Pouch bag is formed from an enlarged iteration of the label’s signature Intrecciato weave, recalling traditional Japanese origami.
