The fall/winter season is definitely an exciting time for handbag trends. It is no secret that I am not a fan of those colder months. But when it comes to handbags, I do look forward to the trends that reappear year after year just as I am getting ready to break out all my sweaters. Don’t get me wrong, summer trends can be fun. I just feel like the fall/winter trends have a more sophisticated vibe, which I happen to love. So if you are looking for a handbag to add to your holiday wishlist, I highly recommend picking something that falls under a currently coveted trend. Below are some suggestions from my favorite fall/winter trends. Enjoy!
Red is always right! A lot of people don’t realize this, but red is actually a fantastic handbag color. It is bright and bold, yet somehow neutral at the same time. Personally, I love red satchels. They look so sophisticated and they really do go with just about any look.
White is no longer an after Labor Day faux pas. You can wear whites year round, just as long as it is in a seasonally-appropriate material. For handbags, this typically means leather. I prefer a shoulder bag when it comes to white pieces. That is because you want to keep it as far away from your blue jeans as possible (i.e. color transfer!).
Favorite Trend #3: Rocker Studs
Tom Ford Jennifer Studded Leather Mini Bag. $2690
Milly Studded Mini Bag. $225
This season is all about textures! My favorite texture is definitely studs. They can be contrasting or tone-on-tone, whatever you prefer. But with all that detail, I think studs look best on mini bags.
