In the fashion world, the term “arm candy” has taken on a whole new meaning: handbags are taking center stage everywhere, from the pre-fall runway and celebrity magazines to the closets and Instagrams of your favorite influencers.
Regardless of your daily style preference, the top names in fashion have blessed us with gorgeous “It” bags to match your mood and suit every occasion. The best part? With pieces this fab, it’s safe to let your outfit come second. On those days when you need to run out the door, you can still leave the house in style with one of these stunners draped over your arm.
Here are some of the designer “it” bags we’re currently crushing on:
Transition your wardrobe from summer to fall with the iconic Fendi Peekaboo bag, which showcases a timeless shape and playful details that live up to its cheerful name. With its new accordion-frame shape, interchangeable inner pockets, and the just-launched personalization service, which allows you to customize the bag with your initials – the Fendi Peekaboo is a piece to be treasured for years to come.
Leave it to Louis Vuitton to set the handbag bar high: the added textures and woven leather straps make the new Capucines PM bag a sophisticated yet light and breezy piece that transitions seamlessly from one season to the next. Named for the Rue de Capucines in Paris, the handbag is crafted from full-grain Taurillon leather and features a flap that can be worn outside to reveal a Monogram Flower or inside to showcase the leather-wrapped LV initials. It can be carried by hand, on the shoulder or worn cross-body with the detachable strap.
We can’t get enough of Chloe’s new Daria bag (especially in the Sepia tone). It’s beautiful, smooth and effortlessly cool. Wear it as a crossbody with a white tee and jeans or carry it in your hand with an ivory dress for an Instagram-worthy fall fashion post.
Carolina Herrera’s bold Vendome bag serves up some major confidence and elegance while providing enough space to carry everything you need to conquer the workday like a boss. If a real-life Miranda Priestly were to drop a handbag on her assistant’s desk every morning, it would be this one.
The sharp, clean and monochrome Prada Louise tote from the brand’s fall collection will be a favorite among those with an eye for minimalist pieces. Our pick? This smoky, edgy grey – perfect for fall and winter.
The Saint Laurent Cassandra YSL Monogram Leather Wallet On Chain crossbody is a cool, go-to handbag for good reason: it instantly elevates any outfit in a simple yet impactful way. You can’t go wrong with an edgy gold chain strap.
The versatile and abstract MCM Shopper in Logo Glitch Hologram features nappa leather top handles and a removable strap for handsfree wear – perfect for the fashionista who wants to make a statement while on the go.
