4 handbag trends for fall
Update your handbag, and you update your entire look.
That’s not a meme, but it should be.
If you’re looking for a way to heat up your style this fall, grab one of our favorite purse styles. Here are four must-try handbag trends for fall 2015.
1. A bucket bag:
This is about as convenient as a purse can get. It’s practical, casual but totally on point. A bucket bag typically has a cinch or drawstring around the top instead of (or in addition to) a zipper, giving is a slouchy, boho look. We love the faux leather bucket bag at Nordstrom. Bonus points for a zip pouch for your keys. ‘Nevin’ Faux Leather Drawstring Bucket Bag, $59.95 (plus Cash Back), Nordstrom.com
2. Warm-weather fabrics:
Fall handbags this year are getting creative with fabric, and borrowing ideas from your favorite fall tops. Look for wool bags, plaid flannel, shearling and other fabrics with great texture and warmth. This Ugg Australia red and black flannel handbag is the perfect example. Ugg Australia Muir Buffalo Check Tote, $245 (plus Cash Back), Nordstrom.com
3. All of the fringe:
Fringe is still totally hot this fall, and there’s nowhere more fun to sport it than on your handbag. Go big, with a full fringe bag, or look for small fringy accents and tassels. Target has a great selection of fringe handbags, but the Women’s Fringe Crossbody really stands out. It’s chic with nice detailing that makes it interesting. Women’s Fringe Crossbody Handbag, $22.99 (plus Cash Back), Target.com
4. All three in one:
For the ultimate fall 2015 handbag win, check out Target’s Adam Lippes plaid flannel, bucket bag with a fringe accent. A trifecta of fashion awesomeness. Adam Lippes for Target Large Crossbody Bucket Bag, on sale $27.98 (plus Cash Back), Target.com
