With every fashion season comes new trends that we’ll be seeing on savvy sartorialists in the coming months from celebrities on the red carpet to the biggest street style influencers around the world. These trends also define what you should be considering when putting together your wardrobe for the Fall/Winter 2019 season. As you start shopping for furry winter coats and stylish boots,  you’ll also want to overhaul your accessories closet, what’s more important than handbags?

For Fall/Winter 2019, handbag trends are governed by curious reptilian prints, chain details, geometry and more. To help you with your quest for your next wrist candy, we’ve compiled some of the said trends and the bags that embody them. Enjoy your retail therapy.


Structured handles

As apparel embraces the louche, bags retain balance by turning to structured silhouettes for Fall/Winter 2019. Structured top-handle purses, in particular, are all the rage, no matter the size. Some border on travel cases, while others are perfect for everyday wear. The bottom line is, we want them all.


Chain straps

We’re chained to the rhythm with this handbag trend. While chain straps are typically associated with evening bags, we’re glad designers are finally embracing the fact that chainlink bag straps deserve time in the limelight.


Geometric shapes

Creative directors have kicked their design dimensions into high gear this season with bags that bear seriously geometric shapes. From the cuboid to the sphere and everything in between, Fall/Winter 2019 is schooling us on geometry and we welcome it.


Double bags

The principle that two is better than one rings true in the case of Fall/Winter 2019’s most outlandish handbag trend. Brands are embracing the combination of two or more bags, worn as one. While some of us may question the functionality, to chronic overpackers, it’s your time to shine.
