9 Popular Handbags We Want in Fall 2016

Trendy Handbags #1: Matchy

This is one of the most interesting styles amongst all the handbags on the runways. Matching your handbag to your outfit is hardly a new concept. But this year, matchy takes a new meaning. Forget the same color, now its time to match the embellishments, fabrics and patterns of your handbags to your outfits. We saw handbags and clutches in the same style, color and fabrics as the outfits in the Fall 2016 collections of Chanel, Dior and Atelier Versace. The Chanel black and grey clutch is my favorite.

Latest Designer Handbags #2: Novelty

This is one of the boldest trends we are seeing in various brands as well on runways. Novelty bags are those that are made in the shapes of objects, animals and even outfits. And these unique shaped bags suit every occasion, right from parties to a casual outings. We are loving the radio bag by Dolce & Gabbana and the leather jacket bag by Moschino.

Trendy Handbags #3: Structured Handbags

Some of the popular handbags seen on the runway were structured. With clean lines and defined edges, these bags are classy must-haves. Structured bags can be a clutches, top-handle bags or even shoulder-strap bags.

Latest Handbags #4: Large Clutch

Who says clutches are just for formal occasions? These large clutches can do wonders and take you from day to night for all kind of occasions and parties. I am absolutely adoring the white clutch with the black logo of Moschino.

Popular Handbags #5: Denim

If you’re looking for something cool and casual, then denim clutches and handbags are great options! I’m liking the floral embroidered clutch by Alexander McQueen.

Fall Handbags #6: Bucket

Bucket bags have been given a simple and charming twist this season. They’ve always been great to pair with casual-wear, like jeans, jumpsuits or leather skirts. The stone-studded one by Alexander Wang is great for parties and weddings.

Latest Handbags #7: Broad Strap Bags

Broad strapped handbags are very comfy to carry around, and the trend is here to stay! Whether its box shaped or structured, go for at least an inch wide strap. We saw them lot in the Fall 2016 collections of Dior, Prada and Fendi.

Fall Handbag Trend #8: Box Clutch

Box clutches are very trendy this season and considering how classy they look, they won’t go out of fashion anytime soon. Sounds like a good investment! I’m liking the copper embellished one by Christian Louboutin.
