The fall season is upon us, and so are the hottest handbag trends from the runways to the street! For fall 2016, we are looking at embellished bags, saddle bags, bucket bags, boxy camera bags or train cases, and vintage appeal. Many of these trends can raise the price of a handbag; especially the embellished bag trend! It is hard to spend over $1000 on a handbag; especially when it might have a shelf life. So I scoured the web for the hottest, most fashionable, IT bags of the season-all under $1000 with some under $500 or under $200! Love that!
To sweeten the deal, many of these hot handbags are under $500, or under $200, or even under $150! How fab is that!?
When shopping for a fall handbag under $1000, there are a few things to keep in mind this season in order to ensure the handbag you purchase is 100% on trend. Look for one of more of these trends in a handbag when you shop this fall season: 1970s vintage inspiration, embellishments, thick shoulder straps, suede, saddle bag silhouettes, single top handle satchels or lady bags, and also dark colors such as black, grey, hunter green, burgundy, burnt orange, mustard, and shades of brown. Classic autumn is in!
If you are wondering about size this season when looking for the best of the fall handbags under $1000, don’t worry about it! Any size goes. Fall 2016 is all about totes, roomy hobos, any size of shoulder bag, any size single top handle satchel, and any size clutch. You cannot go wrong! If you plan to buy a basic color such as black in the hopes that the bag carries you through 2017, then stay away from mini bags. Spring 2017 will be moving away from mini bags.
Another hot trend for the fall 2016 season in handbags is the personalized strap. You can find funky, fun straps for under $1000 in the shopping widget below which easily attach to any one of your satchels at home. It is an inexpensive way to update you current handbag wardrobe without buying a new bag. I bought this one for fall. So excited to use it on my black satchel, which you can see in action here.
There are also several IT bags which are hot on the street this fall, and under $1000! You can find Mansur Gavriel’s iconic bucket bag in stock online here, and this hot boxy bag from an emerging designer online here. I really want to get my hands on the small version in black. Isn’t it cute!
So many fall handbags are under $1000 this season, and so many of them happen to be from hot, established and iconic designers, as well as emerging designers to watch. This is a great season for handbag shopping! Love that!
What is your favorite handbag style this fall 2016 season? Are you more of a shoulder bag girl? Or do you prefer the structure of a single top handle satchel? Perhaps you are feeling boho and gravitate towards fringe or tassels? Or perhaps you love chic and interesting designs such as embellished bags? I have found myself leaning towards saddle bags, buckets bags, and single top handle satchels. List your favorites in the comment section below!
Happy shopping, and stay fabulous 😉
