If you’re anything like me, you will have a secret burning desire to possess all the cutest bags on the face of the earth. Because bags are important. Check out the entire fall Pantone colours here:
This autumn season colours were important. Some of the top colours to look out for are:
With so many tints and shades, colours are important for handbags, not to mention design and distinctness. Here are some of the top features to look out for when shopping for a handbag this season:
1. Bags with labels and logos
Who doesn ’t want to show off their brand new and expensive purchase? These bags don’t shy away from their brand names, and now you can get slogans printed on bags to bring out your personality as you strut your stuff. Did we mention bold text is a design in itself? Think type and text this season, and stay bold girl!
BROWN & WHITE
2. Jewelry Box Bags
We’ve always known our mom’s old jewelry boxes would make it big in the bag world, and now it has. We’re seeing adorably embellished handbags to pair with an evening cocktail dress. Totally an investment piece!
3. Circular Bags
Vintage has never left the scene when it comes to fashion and style. Circular bags have been around for decades, since the circle is a shape that was created centuries ago. It’s a timeless classic, and with the right shape, colour and texture, you can get away with wearing circular bags to a formal evening out.
4. Chained straps
A personal favorite, chains on a clutch or a bag can instantly glam up your look. We all have days where we feel wearing an earring or bracelet might be “too much” for the look. Opt for a chained bag to bring the right about of hard metal embellishment to your look.
5. Embellished bags
What’s the big deal with statement embellished bags? They usually make your look complete. When you have nothing to wear but jeans, kitten heels and a tee, an embellished bag magically turns your entire outfit glamourous. Always pair a statement bag with something easier on the eye, or pair with another statement piece such as a printed skirt.
6. Belt bags
7. Gold detailing
Much like a chained bag, gold detailing can bring a touch of glam to your outfit. And with the type of gold hardware you choose to carry, you can personalize your entire outfit on your bag. Think of it as arm jewelry!
8. Fur and fluff
We’re all for faux fur, and what better pay to play than with colourful furry bags? They’re cute, may not last long in the fashion world, but we cannot resist this K-Pop inspired accessory. Pair furry bags with your evening out look.
9. Burnt Orange
A Pantone colour of the year, burnt orange is everywhere this season. It’s become more of a neutral colour, much like navy blues and greys, so styling this colour with anything in your wardrobe is definitely doable. Pair a burnt orange bag with anything and everything.
10. Tartan Bags
Another trend that may or may not last is plaid bags. Why? Because plaid is a trickier game to play, since plaid is usually paired with gothic or Oxford British looks. But as we shift seasons, plaid is something you will need to compliment your jewel tone colours of the season. It’s a perfect splash of texture and print. It’s the new and improved tartan!
11. Croc Bags
Again another faux crocodile print we all support, this print and texture is a classic. It’s the right amount of colour and texture to spice up your look. There is no wrong way to overdo a crocodile print bag. Just don’t pair a croc bag with another croc print.
12. Oversized bags
An oversized bag is something we all have regardless of fashion. It’s about functionality and usage more than style. However we can get stylized oversized bags that carry all our supplies and still look trendy. We’d suggest you get a clutch to keep in your bag so you won’t be rummaging around for your car keys every time.
13. Pink is the colour of the season
If you didn’t know already, pink is huge this year. Whether you think millennial pink suits you more than a dusty rose, pink is a win for everyone. So how do we wear pink? Since pink isn't a neutral colour, you need to be careful how you mix and match colours and textures. But pink is a super fun colour, so only the bold can pull off a colour like this. Pair with jewelry.
Strappy bags are important because when the bag’s designs have overpowered your overall look, the straps usually subtle-s down. But what do you do when your outfit is a pop of colour and your bag is boring? Up the game with a loud strappy strap.
15. Shaped bags
If you haven’t noticed already, geometrical bags are all the rage this season, and vintage handbags have a tendency to sell at high auction costs when they’re limited edition collectors items with unique shapes and colours. Think the iconic Dior saddlebag for example. So next time you shop for a bag, try a new silhouette. It’s sure to stay in trend forever.
16. Boxy bags
Inspired from the jazz era, these box bags are not to be mistaken with makeup storage suitcases. A box bag can actually bring more dimension to your overall look, keeping you look so fly. Opt for a small box bag to bring tons of attention and talk to your look.
Backpacks are more of a functional piece than it is a fashion piece. It’s for the girl on the go. Now you can look stylish while your hands are free to hold nothing. Many women are confused with how to sport a backpack fashionably. Here’s a clue: pair with a heeled boot or closed-toe heels and strut your stuff effortlessly.
18. Multiple bags
Why you ask?
Because it’s a trend! We suggest you start with mini bags to layer, and possibly combine both bags at the straps for the right style. Pair with anything. It’s totally versatile and fresh.
19. Fanny Packs
Ahh, a personal favorite! Fanny packs were huge in the early 90’s but now it's about the design and structure of the new and improved fanny packs. Since fanny packs have always has a bad rep, designers such as Gucci have styled these gold hardware bags with dresses, suits and so much more. Think of it as a belt and bag combined to cinch your waist! It’s a three -in-one.
20. Mini Bags
Because who has time to haul a suitcase, unless you’re running to work. These mini bags are best worn in the evenings, with your girls out on the town. I never know that to pack inside these itty bitty bags, so i’ll carry my keys and a lipstick only. My phone is in my hand anyway.
21. Bucket Bags
These adorable bags fall into the season’s silhouette of shapely bags. Pair with anything, day or night.
22. Wicker Bags
Sustainable fashion has always been a thing, and we’re happy to feature them as an important commodity. If you’re environmental friendly, you need to get your hands on these straw bags!
