The 6 Best Fall 2023 Bag Trends to Shop Ahead of the Season

Prepare to be in your bag this fall. No, not in an emotional way—within the literal sense. Fall 2023 bag trends are shaping as much as be total dopamine dressing, and I’m here for it. Based on Latest York Fashion Week’s runways and street style, times are a-changing in relation to what’s hot and what’s not in purses and bags. Commuters, prepare to swap your assortment of reusable bags for one carry-all tote (it’s about rattling time). To all you DIY-ers and eclectic fashionistas who’ve been dreaming of creating a hair dryer right into a baguette bag, the time is nye. From the buzziest color for September to the purse aesthetic du jour, listed below are one of the best bag trends for fall 2023. (And make sure to top off on bags for spring, when you’re at it.)

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and appears like a duck, it’s probably the subsequent viral designer purse. Perhaps it’s just me, but I totally love when trends are rooted in plain old fun. Sure, a pigeon clutch is likely to be a bit zany, wacky, or downright absurd, but who cares? That’s the purpose. If it makes you pleased, flaunt it. Puppets and Puppets leaned in with quite a lot of food-themed bags, while Thom Browne opted for dog and clock shapes. Vivienne Tam, Coach, and Colin LoCascio similarly channeled playful purses in quite a lot of forms.

Collina Estrada Fall/Winter 2023

Albert Urso

Whether or not they’re functional features like buckles or pockets, or just there for aesthetics, bags with hardware are on the rise. I’m having recovered memories of a rivet-covered hobo bag I used as a teen. It wasn’t far off from what we saw at shows like Collina Estrada, Coach, Bruce Glen, and Helena Eisenhart. Right about now, I’m wishing I had spared it from the donation pile.

For a lot of working women in metropolitan areas, you don’t select the crazy bag lady life; the crazy bag lady life chooses you. Ultimately, you may forgo using 4 different bags and spend money on one bag large enough to suit all of your essentials. Totes were heavily featured in a lengthy list of hot-ticket shows like Sandy Liang, Coach, Proenza Schouler, Collina Estrada, Luar, Ulla Johnson, and even Brandon Maxwell, where models used huge hobo bags as clutches. Gym shoes, work laptop, breastmilk pump, leftovers for lunch—throw it within the bag! The more the merrier.

Luar Fall/Winter 2023

Indeed, this timeless silhouette never truly fades out of fashion. Still, though, we saw such a bag greater than crossbody bags, satchels, or regular shoulder bags this season. LaQuan Smith leaned into briefcase renditions, while Luar and Coach stuck with the classic shape.

Gabriela Hearst Fall/Winter 2023

Rodin Banica

This isn’t only a bag trend. It’s an the whole lot trend. Red was all around the runways, making it among the finest fall 2023 fashion trends, and I predict it’s going to be in every single place, come fall. I’m not the just one who thinks so. Gabriela Hearst, Tory Burch, Kate Spade, and Coach all played with shades of rouge. For those who’re seeking to incorporate the trend with subtlety (or without having to purchase a bunch of red clothes), a vibrantly hued bag is the right approach to go.

So far as I can tell, there isn’t a selected name to explain this style, which I’ve affectionately dubbed “lopsided handles.” At shows like KGL and Tory Burch, the unconventional style reigned. While it’s a rare one in my experience, I feel it’s about to blow up in popularity.
