Fall Designer Handbag Edit
I recently shared my Luxe Fall Edit post and it was a huge hit… so by popular demand here is my fall handbag edit featuring the most modern, luxe and versatile handbags!
Handbags are worth the investment because they will elevate even the most basic look. If you are wearing jeans and a tee, add a swanky bag and you automatically look more expensive! Designer bags also make an impression. They say …I mean business. If you have a great job or hope to secure a great job, dressing in a more high-end way might help you get that promotion. If you are going to a soiree that feels a bit out of your league, don’t underestimate the power of the designer handbag. You don’t have to be friends with any of these people, but with help from the bag, you can make a great impression! (The sharp and witty small talk is on you.)
These bags are all REALLY expensive so please don’t go into debt or spend more than you can just to get a designer bag. In that case, you always go for a mid-range bag, rent your bags through sites like Rent the Runway and Bag, Borrow or Steal or look at consignment options through sites like The Real Real.
I want to walk you through each of these bags and explain what I love, which ones are the most classic, some trendy options, etc. Any of these bags would be amazing choices if you were looking to invest in a new handbag!
This geometric handbag is clearly a fresh and modern take on a bucket bag. I love the black and white combo and of course the VERY unique shape. It has an adjustable and removable shoulder strap so you can wear it as a shoulder bag or carry it by the black handle. It comes in multiple colorways including brown and white, and all black.
I’ve been sporting this cute mini bag all summer and I plan to wear it well into fall! White is one of those colors people tend to shy away from during the colder months, but I love it! Obviously, this Gucci bag is very popular and always a classic, versatile option. And, you can get it in another color if white isn’t your favorite.
The Strathberry brand has blown up since Duchess Meghan Markle starting carrying their bags. The brand is also known for the thin gold bag across the top of their bags. The Allegro is a beautiful classic, structured bag that’s perfect for everyday use! This is the midi but it also comes in a mini size that’s really cute! Find it in multiple colors options too.
Another Chloe bag favorite is the Tess. I have it in a gorgeous brown color called “sepia” and think it’s beautiful for fall. The gray is another really versatile option. The small size is great for just essentials. Get large if you tend to carry more.
This is just gorgeous! It’s incredibly chic and modern. It comes in an array of colors and materials but I love this metallic gold! It’s a beautiful statement bag! Maybe my next big purchase…
The shape of this bag is really chic. I love the modern gold bar on the top. It comes with a strap so you can also wear it as a shoulder bag! This bag only holds essentials.
The Chanel Boy Bag is the favorite of all favorites! It’s classic, chic, and sophisticated. It’s one of those bags that people see and instantly recognize! I love the beige, but I decided to go with black for my first Chanel purchase.
Loewe is one of those super hot brands right now you’ll start to see everywhere now that you know about it (if you didn’t already). I love the tie detail on the front. It has a detachable strap so you can carry as a shoulder bag or a clutch. It’s a small bag that can fit the essentials like a phone, cardholder, and lipstick. It comes in six colors.
It’s no surprise this is one of my favorites! I have this bag in off-white and love it! The beige and brown are two other colors I think will be incredibly versatile. You can carry this as a shoulder bag, crossbody, or by the cool gold ring.
The Annie is my newest Chloe favorite. It has the same beautiful Chloe hardware, but the shape is more classic and traditional. This color is also SO gorgeous and it will work well for those of you building brown capsule wardrobes. It comes in different sizes but the mini is cute and perfect for holding the essentials!
Lee Radziwill was Jacqueline Kennedy’s sister and a style icon. This bag pays homage to her classic style. There are two sizes. Here is the larger size that can carry a lot more! It comes in black, brown, and a black croc-embossed option.
There are so many reasons to love this Burberry tote! Cool stud details, black and brown color combo, perfect structured shape, and gorgeous leather! This will work with both your blacks and browns.
Another tote I’d love to add to my collection is this one by Saint Laurent. I love the quilting, long shoulder straps, and the larger size!
Givenchy is a beautiful handbag brand. This satchel is the epitome of sophistication! I love that the shape is classic with a twist. And you can’t go wrong with getting this bag is black.
Another bag I wanted to mention is the Prada Cahier bag. I just bought the one that mixes cognac with black so I can wear with all my black and brown basics. I am IN LOVE with this bag. It adds an immediate cool factor to any look.
