Looks for Less: Best Fall Bags For All Occasions

Autumn is right around the corner, which means fall wardrobe prep time! Don’t worry, there’s still some summer sunshine to soak up. Lately I’ve been thinking about accessories, specifically which bags I’ll carry, in the upcoming season. The best part? These can all be worn now and will transition nicely into cooler weather. I’ve found different styles for all the various situations in your busy life including cross body, tote and backpack, all at prices that won’t break the bank. Here are the best fall bags and they are less than $90.

This unique cross body bag from Topshop features a panther and a gold chain. Its soft blue shade would look pretty paired with a black dress for a dinner out or with denim and a white button up on the weekends. For busy days working and running errands, this faux crocodile embossed tote from Anthropologie features unique strap detailing and a suede interior. It’s sure to fit everything you need to carry when you’re rushing from home to school drop off to the office.

For a cozy to the touch bag that would still work for the end of summer, this River Island cross body bag from ASOS features a fun white, black, gold and green check design and a burgundy strap. It’s both subtly colorful and ideal for incorporating into your outfits to explore mixing textures and patterns. If you’re looking for something a little more simple and understated, this waxed canvas tote from Urban Outfitters is a perfect day to day bag. Its removable strap, inside pockets and navy color make it practical while being utilitarian chic.

If you’re the kind of person who is fond of backpacks, Herschel’s limited edition Heritage backpack for this fall features a vibrant floral pattern, reminiscent of a Dutch floral still life painting. The gorgeous blooms are sure to brighten up even the gloomiest of days! If the floral pattern is too much for you, there are other color options and even a sophisticated black with a cheetah print pocket.

So go ahead, treat yourself to a new bag and enjoy the changing seasons!
