7 Fall Bag Trends To Shop Before Everybody Else Does
Now that the latest leg of Fashion Month has come to an end, it’s time to spotlight the trends that reigned supreme on the Fall 2019 runways. One key takeaway: when it comes to accessories, handbags are about to get a lot more playful. From doubling up to two bags at once to furry details and even smaller micro bags, fall’s best bags are anything but basic.
Cozy and Cuddly
Come fall, you'll be able to snuggle up with your handbags. Shearling, faux fur, and fuzzy textures took over some of the season's must-have bags. From Chanel's cozy aprés-ski accessories to colorful shaggy totes at Prada, your on-the-go essentials will definitely be keeping warm next fall.
Two is better than one. Designers ranging from Off-White to Givenchy and Fendi made the case for your bag carrying a bag of its own. An ideal solution for those who can't fit all their essentials into one micro purse.
Smaller hand-held bags continued to go strong on the Fall 2019 runways. From structured geometric shapes to tiny hoop handles, some of the most standout bags were those too special to simply sling over your shoulder.
But for those who prefer to go hands-free, belt bags are here to stay too. Fendi and Dior introduced their It bags in fanny pack form while brands like Maryam Nassir Zadeh and Emilio Pucci introduced more compact takes on the style.
Micro Mini Bags
Bags are continuing to shrink smaller and smaller. This season saw an all-time record, with Jacquemus' tiny bags that were barely big enough to fit a pair of AirPods. Designers like Carolina Herrera and Chloé, however, delivered micro bags that can still hold a tiny bit more. The takeaway? Only carry things that *truly* spark joy.
Elevate your look with the help of a luxe croc-embellished bag. The trend took over runways from New York to Paris, done in everything from python-inspired textures to glam all-black box bags.
The Large Caryall
And good news for those rebelling against the micro bag trend: giant caryall totes are making their return for fall. From Proenza Schouler to Giambattista Valli, oversized bags staged a comeback on the runway. In the wise words of Fabolous, "just throw it in the bag."
