This fall season is full of trends. Most are the “typical” trends that you see with the return of cooler weather, but there is one that really caught me off guard. It seems saddle bags are becoming popular again! This classic style has come and gone many times over the years, but one thing always remains the same — that distinctive saddle bag shape. It just feels strange seeing so many during the fall season. What I have seen so far though, has been pretty impressive. My favorites? The unlined styles! Nothing is better than an unlined saddle bag! Here are my top two picks (so far).
Madewell Woven Flap Saddle Bag in English Saddle – $168
Madewell has been around forever. And yet, it seems to get overlooked a lot. This gorgeous saddle bag, however, is sure to make a Madewell lover out of anyone! I love the leather on this piece. It is smooth and soft, plus the color is just so rich. It really gives this bag a great vintage look! The unique toggle and drawstring closure is pretty cool too.

Rebecca Minkoff Studded Saddle Bag in Sage – $295
Rebecca Minkoff is not really known for her saddle bags. Odd, considering there are several styles available from this designer. I really love this one because it has those lovely gold tone studs. They add a nice extra touch to this style. I also love the colors it comes in… black, putty, cherry, almond… and this beautiful light green called sage. Definitely go with the sage!
