Fall Bag Trends: Sequins + Metallics

As the end of summer approaches, fall designer collections are making their from the runway to department stores and boutiques. PurseBop loves everything about fall—the layering, the crisp-but-not-too-chilly weather, the flavored lattes, and, of course, the beautiful new handbags.

So, we decided to do an in-depth investigation into Fall 2017’s biggest handbag trends. As we expected, the classic fall styles are as ubiquitous as ever: suede and deep neutral colors, reminiscent of changing leaves. What we were more surprised to see was the sheer number of bags with sequins, embellishments, and metallic colors. The forecast? A shiny fall for handbag lovers!

If you’re feeling a little playful and want to fall into fall with the new trends, sequins and metallics are the perfect way to change things up without going too crazy. Take a look at the eye candy below in 4 different categories: cross body bags, totes, shoulder bags, and clutches.
