However, this is a positive thing! You carry your work luggage together with several outfits every week, so adaptability is key. The finest handbag trends for the autumn season lean into this concept, with new interpretations on classic shapes that will match your existing ensemble.
That's not to say there aren't plenty of reasons to be excited. The festive circuit saw shiny and shimmering bags sparkle down the runways in autumn 2022, doubling down on the Roaring Twenties look that evolved post-pandemic. Shearling ruled supreme in terms of texture, with snug carryalls that will feel exceptionally pleasant to the touch on those colder days.
The bucket silhouette's popularity has ebbed and flowed over the years, arguably culminating in early 2013 with the release of Mansur Gavriel's now-iconic drawstring bucket bag. Altuzarra, Ulla Johnson, and Louis Vuitton are now revisiting this iconic design for autumn, with elegant additions like leather piping and vibrant hues. We're especially like of the slimmed-down variants, which have enough space to contain your necessities yet are tiny enough to wear in the evening.
This fall, switch up your handbag materials from traditional leather (faux or real) to something fuzzy and tactile. Shearling was spotted on the runways at both legacy houses like Chanel and buzzy names like Jacquemus. While a shearling handbag may appear to be a strong statement, these comfortable carryalls come in more practical shapes, like as the baguette form or saddle type. Furthermore, if the weather becomes chilly, you may tuck them under your arm for extra warmth.
The epidemic has spawned styles across the spectrum of personal style. On one end of the scale, there are home dresses and sweatpants-as-real-pants, while on the other, there is a complete embrace of sexual attire and glittery fabrics. The latter has seemed evocative of the Roaring Twenties, sparking speculation about the revival of this classic era in fashion. Transform this holiday spirit into your handbag collection with one of the season's many glittery purses.
Because hardware can make or break a purse, the emphasis on big, massive chain links on the autumn runways seemed daring for the season. Thankfully, the ultimate effect is invigorating and stylish, as designers like Stella McCartney demonstrated with monotone pastel satchels. Or at Loewe, where designer Jonathan Anderson added a similar hefty chain to a bright orange top-handle bag. But, whether you want something colourful and bold or something neutral, there's something for everyone this season—with an exaggerated chain as the focal point.
