It’s always a great time of year to buy a handbag, but fall is especially awesome. For one, it’s when the most stores and designers release new bag collections, and it’s also the time of year you’ll get the most bang for your buck: chances are, a bag you buy now will feel seasonally appropriate all the way through the end of spring next year.
So let’s get shopping.
Here, we bring you the very best fall bags for 2015, divided up into our five favorite trends, and with picks for every budget (seriously, the lowest price bag on this list is $3 … and there are a few others that have three zeros).
The Bucket Bag
This classic 90s style is back in a big way, and we don’t hate it. It pairs perfectly with casual outfits (think leather leggings, ankle boots, and an oversized sweater), so consider it your new go-to weekend bag.
The Cheeky Clutch
Forget your fancy clutch and your standard wallet-on-chain. This season’s clutches are cheeky, irreverent, and far more fun than anything that’s currently in your closet.
The Fringe Hobo
Fringe might be the trendiest trend of 2015, and it’s showing no signs of dying for fall. These bags prove it has a place in our closets beyond festival season.
The Crossbody Saddle
This perfectly sized, neatly tailored bag is the purse equivalent of riding boots: it’s practical, classic, and pretty much goes with anything.
The Work Tote
Kick that brightly colored Longchamp bag from your college days to the curb, and replace it with a sleek, minimalist leather tote. (There, much more professional).
