You’re never fully dressed without a handbag. Or a shoulder bag. Or a crossbody. With so many different styles to choose from, picking out a new favorite fall bag can be tough.
Whether your personal style leans elegant, tomboy, classic, punk or some combination of them all, we found a bag for you. Because we know trying to find your perfect bag is like trying to decide between Oreos and Chips Ahoy, except there probably isn’t room in your budget for both.
The 10 Best Fall Bags for 2021
1. Madewell Zip-Top Medium Transport Tote Bag, $178
Madewell’s tote bag is the definition of essential. Like, almost as essential as toothpaste. You-should-be-able-to-write-it-off-on-your-taxes-level essential.
It comes in four different neutral colors, and the leather is ethically and sustainably sourced. The bag is perfect for running errands, going to the office, and hiding under it in the grocery store when your ex walks by.
2. Banana Republic Mini Suede Bag, $128
Suede is in style every fall, but it’s a huge trend for Fall 2021. This mini suede crossbody by Banana Republic will hold all of your essentials.
It’s the perfect non-fuss, everyday addition to your autumn wardrobe. It comes in the colors cement and denim, which sounds like a cool indie band name. You’re welcome.
3. Anthropologie Mini Contrast Tote Bag, $90
Neutrals are in, but so are bright colors. This mini tote bag from Anthropologie is made from vegan leather and comes in three bright colors and a neutral option if you love that wallflower life.
The shoulder strap is removable, which transforms this into a handbag that’s mostly just annoying to carry. Anything in the name of fashion!
4. Cleobella Nia Satchel, $298
This woven leather oversized clutch by Cleobella is hand-crafted by Balinese artisans and partially made with recycled materials. Super-sized clutches are in this fall, which is all well and good, so long as you don’t forget it every time you put it down.
5. Marc Jacobs Faux Shearling Mini Traveler Tote, $225
Shearling is finally in style again, but since this mini tote bag is made from faux fur, no lambs were injured in the process. It also comes in a lavender color called “arctic.” Yeah, we don’t get it either.
6. Show Me Your Mumu Azalea Chain Bag, $52
This cream-colored crossbody bag has some added attitude with the oversized gold chain handle, which works in a pinch to lock your miniature bicycle.
7. J. Crew Classic Saddle Bag in Croc-Embossed Leather, $228
This croc-embossed leather bag comes in three colors and is bigger than your average crossbody. It’s also vintage-inspired, so you can look like grandma, but not smell like her.
8. Fiorucci Apple Leather Icon Mini Bag, $115
Strut your angelic side with this cute pale blue handbag made from vegan leather. Oh, angels don’t strut? Please don’t make us tell Lucifer that.
9. Frye Melissa Hobo Bag, $398
This snake print hobo bag by Frye comes with a removable, adjustable crossbody strap. Big enough to fit your essentials, small enough to almost forget at brunch.
10. Rebecca Minkoff Yin Yang Leather Bucket Bag, $298
This funky bucket bag features a contrasting yin yang pattern over a neutral canvas pouch. The last time Rebecca Minkoff released this bag in a darker brown shade, it sold out instantly. Get your hands on this one before it follows suit.
