The Key Handbag Trends for Fall 2023
1 || Fluffy Handbags
If you’re in search of a statement handbag, the fluffy styles featured by designers such as Gucci and Burberry would make a fantastic complement to your cozy wardrobe.
2 || Bucket Bags
The style that took over in 2015 is making a comeback. But of course, 2023 had its influence on the bag, featuring of-the-moment accents like acrylic chains, intricately woven leathers, bold hardware, and a creative blend of up-cycled materials and innovative fabrics (Think apple leather!)
3 || Polished Handbags
After the mermaid dressing and Barbiecore took summer by storm, fall fashion is all about getting back to business. Think practical handbags that have everything you need to get things done from hidden pockets to room for your files and chargers.
4 || Color Of The Season
Red is inevitably the color of fall 2023. We have seen it all over the runway. But if you are not the kind of person who wears colors, or you aren’t yet ready to commit to the shade for a full look, a handbag is a great way to dip your toe into this trend.
5 || It’s All Handled
Here’s another choice in the realm of sophisticated handbag styles. The refined and gracefully structured silhouette featuring top handles stands out as a prominent bag trend in 2023. Whether it’s the crisply designed, minimalist bags showcased by Prada or the embellished variations of the iconic Birkin bag by Hermès, there’s undoubtedly an option that resonates with your style.
6 || Clutch It
The clutch bag had stepped aside in recent years, but it has made a striking comeback on the autumn/winter 2023 runways, though it appears quite distinct from the slim envelope designs you might recall from nightclubs around 2008. When it comes to a clutch, the key lies in how you hold it, and labels such as Miu Miu and Versace have advocated for the casual elegance of nonchalantly tucking it under your arm.
7 || Croc-Effect Bags
The Croc-inspired trend is making a significant impact this autumn. We’ve previously discussed Croc jackets, and it’s evident that the trend doesn’t end with outerwear; it has extended its influence to handbags as well. Exuding superb elegance, these handbags harmonize seamlessly with the era of understated luxury.
8 || Shopper Tote
The oversized handbags continue to go strong. Loewe’s Puzzle bag is already one of the most talked-about bags from the fall collections and it is expected that this style will be the IT handbag of the season. They’re also great investment pieces.
9 || Puffy
Showcased by Miu Miu, Loewe and other big names, quilted and puffy handbags are in this fall. Take ideas from big jackets and opt for voluminous purses that can double as pillows. The puffier, the better.
10 || Textile handbags
While one may think that textile handbags are only for summer, it’s clear that organic materials are going to stick around for fall this year. Think raffia, woven, and crochet bags.
