From faux fur to denim and chain-link straps, these bags will carry you through the season.
From the distinct smell of new leather to the smooth feel of suede, a brand-new purse is more than just trying to stay on trend. It’s an easy, adaptable way to flaunt your personal style. This fall’s class of carryalls come with classic silhouettes updated with fun twists such as chain links and fur that will add some punch to your wardrobe. “A handbag is meant to complete your outfit,” says Linda Marconi, owner of the Hidden Closet in Chagrin Falls. We’ve made choosing your next bag as simple as throwing one on as you head out the door.

Gray Fringe Mini Bag, $24.99

Bid farewell to bags that can fit your entire wardrobe and opt for this softball-sized version instead. “Having to carry a big bag can be such a hassle,” says Tieisha Mitchell, a sales associate at Target. “This particular bag is simple and stylish to use every day, and the fringe gives it that extra added attention.”

Faux Fur Tote, $98

Get two looks for the price of one with this plush faux fur tote that can be worn as a leather bag with fur accents or reverse it for an entirely faux fur style. “This bag is the definition of function meets fashion because of the combination of leather and the faux fur,” says Jill Braun, a sales associate at the Hidden Closet. “It’s like a warm hug in bag form.”

Chain-Link Crossbody, $88

Make a bold statement with this bag’s structured shape and a chain-link strap. It can be worn as a crossbody or clutch, which adds to the versatility. “It’s edgy enough for a date night, but you can also make it dressy depending on other accessories,” says Jessica Lally, a sales associate at Knuth’s. “You can easily set yourself apart with this bag.”

Denim Crossbody, $70

Since denim easily conceals wear and tear, this carryall is a carefree option. But the bag also ups the fun factor thanks to its cleverly placed leather accents. “It’s an extremely popular style that works all the time,” says Sharon Nelson, a sales associate at Blush Boutique. “It’s denim, it’s durable, and you can do your own thing while having a great time wearing it.”
