The weather is cooling down, but handbag trends are definitely heating up. In fact, I would go so far as to say, designers have out-done themselves when it comes to giving us fun, fresh, options. Here are nine of the best (in a variety of prices) and of course, some tips thrown-in to help you decide which one is awesome for you.

Okay! Enough chitter-chatter, let’s get to the good stuff.

Handbag Trend #1 – Glorious Geometrics


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends Geometric Shapes

Circles, squares, and… trapezoids?!? There is a shape for every taste.

Staud – Rey Leather Shoulder Bag
$325. Tap The Pic For Ordering Info.

This trend is perfection if your style is classic and refined. The structured shape works beautifully with the clean lines of your clothes and will reinforce your sophisticated image. Try an unexpected color to add a hint of fun.

Uma – Lime Green & Black $562. Tap The Image For All The Details.

Pro Tip – Make sure the size will work for everything you need to carry. The structured shape means there’s no wiggle room if extra essentials pop up that you need to schlep along.

Handbag Trend #2 – Modern Metallics


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Metallic Leather
Brunello Cucinelli City Moonlight Metallic Shoulder Bag
$2,995. Tap The Pic For More Info.

I love this trend! Silver and gold are as versatile and black or cognac, but with a more creative, adventurous feel.


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Metallic Leather
Kurt Geiger London Kensington Leather Shoulder Bag $265. Tap The Picture For Info.

Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Metallic Leather
Stella McCartney Metallic Chenille Shoulder Bag $830. Tap The Pic To See Other Colors & Sizes.

Pro Tip – This style is one of my all-time favorites. However, a word of warning. It is way way heavier than it looks. Stella wasn’t messing around when it came to the chain embellishment.

Handbag Trend #3 – Charming Chains


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Chain Handle
Bottega Veneta Chain Pouch Bag $3,600. Tap The Picture For More Details.

We’ve chatted about chains a bunch this year; Chain Link Jewelry and Summer Shoe Embellishment. The trend continues going strong this season but has migrated (in a big way) to handbags. What’s fabulous is there are big chunky chains, thinner more refined chains, and chains strictly as decoration. So, if you’re a fan too, you have a ton of choices!


Fall Winter 2020 Handbags Trend - Chain Strap
House of Want – Chill Framed Clutch $78. Available in White & Beige. Tap The Picture For More Details.

This cream number is also available at Anthropologie in lavender and navy. You can check it out here.


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trend - Chain Embellishments
Daisy Cage Shoulder Bag $44. Tap The Pic For Ordering Info.

Pro Tip – If you’re on-line shopping, check ‘the details’ tab and check how heavy the handbag is. Chains are great, but they can also add weight which will wear your poor shoulder down if it’s going to be your everyday option.

Handbag Trend #4 – Cute Crossbody


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Micro Crossbody
Mz Wallace Micro Crosby Crossbody $135. Tap The Pic For More Details.

Crossbodies have been around for eons. So you’re probably rolling your eyes and thinking what the heck makes this fresh. Well, this season the size has shrunk to micro. Meaning they’re really a small wallet with a strap. I love a crossbody for running errands, to travel, outdoor events (whenever those return), or to carry along with a work tote. If you read Tips To Finding A Handbag You Love, then you may remember us chatting about color and how this is a great place to add a pop of cheer.


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Micro Crossbody
Arrow Festival Ruched Crossbody Bag $22. Tap The Picture For Details

Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Micro Crossbody
The Marc Jacobs Mini Leather Crossbody $350. Tap The Pic For Additional Colors.

Handbag Trend #5 – Playful Puffer


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Puffer Purse
The Marc Jacobs Pillow Convertible Shoulder Bag $450. Tap The Pic To See More.

I know! We talked about Puffer Purses a couple of seasons ago in the Marc Jacobs Pillow Purse review. Well, the trend is growing even bigger with more designers jumping on the wagon.


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Puffer Purse
Salvatore Ferragamo Viva Puffy Shoulder Bag $1,250. Tap The Picture For More Colors.

Pro Tip – Watch where the strap hits you. Because of the width inherent in puffers, they can add unwanted volume to an area you don’t want. If that’s the case, play with the strap length or wear it on your arm or fall in love with a different bag.


Fall Winter Handbag Trends - Puffer Purse
Free People Puffer Fractus Tote $95. Also Available In A Gorgeous Silver/Pink Version. Tap The Picture To See Your Other Options.

Handbag Trend #6 – Clever Clutch


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trend - Oversized Clutch
Zara Cream Colored Oversized Clutch $149. Tap The Picture For More Info.

Clutch bags are super chic, and this season they are oh-so practical. No longer brought out a couple times a year for the random cocktail party and only large enough for a credit card and lipstick. No. No. No. These are roomy and oversized, and dare I say delightfully slouchy and unstructured? (In the best way possible.)


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Oversized Clutch
Bottega Veneta Pouch Leather Clutch $2,700. Available In A Bunch More Colors. Tap The Picture To Check ‘Em Out.

Pro Tip – From a practical standpoint, these are best if it’s the only bag you need to carry. Meaning an over-sized clutch and a work tote can easily turn into a hassle. Especially if you’re petite.


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Oversized Clutch
Mansur Gavriel Cloud Clutch $595. Other Colors Available. Tap The Pic For All The Details.

Handbag Trend #7 – Quirky Quilts


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Quilted Leather
YSL Black Quilted
Medium College Shoulder Bag $2,490. Tap The Picture For More Info.

This is one of the most versatile Fall/Winter trends. No matter if your style is creative or conservative, there is a bag that’ll fit.


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Quilted Leather
The Marc Jacobs
The Softshot Quilted Leather Crossbody $475. Tap The Pic For Additional Colors.

Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Quilted Leather
Topshop Oversize Quilted Bag $40. Also Available In Black. Tap The Picture For All The Info.

Pro Tip – If the quilting feature is something you love and want to really emphasize, consider a color other than black. Lighter, brighter shades do a beautiful job of showing off the detailed stitching.

Handbag Trend #8 – Tempting Texture


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Fur
ZIYIUI Lamb/Mongolian fur bag $75. Available In A Bunch Of Other Colors. Tap The Pic For All Your Options.

This may be my favorite trend. I adore every style featured. (Oh! That weeping you hear in the background is my credit card.) Texture this season means everything from fur to feathers, to unique fabrics. And here’s one of each for you to ponder.


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Texture
Kurt Geiger London Tweed Shoulder Bag $195. Three Other Colors Available. Tap The Pic For All The Details.

Here’s another instance where you’ll want to check ‘the details’. This KG Tweed number is much larger in real life than you’d expect.


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Feathers
Loeffler Randall – Zadie Feather Circle Tote $280. Tap The Picture For Ordering Info.

Pro Tip – If your aesthetic is creative and you’re cringing at the idea of tweed. Or you’re conservative and wincing at the idea of feathers – Don’t! The juxtaposition of funky & traditional will add an unexpected sense of humor and drama to your look. Which is all good. And super stylish.

Handbag Trend #9 – Woven Whimsey


Fall Winter 2020 Handbag Trends - Woven Leather
Bottega Veneta – Banana Woven Leather Shoulder Bag
$4,800. Tap The Picture For More Info.

This is another super versatile trend that goes from casual totes to refined luxury. The best feature of this trend may be the durability. The woven texture hides wear and nicks making it a smart multi-season investment.

Club Monoco Woven Leather Bag – On Sale $72. Also In White. Tap The Picture For More Info.

    Angela, Loved reading this one….I purchased a fabulous bag just pre-pandemic, I’ve used it once since I never go anywhere anymore .
    So relieved to find out it is still a great choice as it fell into a couple of the categories – whew! Plus found a few new ones in your piece I want to check out, apparently I collect bags. Have a great day!!

    • Angela says:

      Yeah! I’m so glad Taylor! Although I’m not surprised you’re ahead of the game and more than ready for the season. I know – there are a bunch that can fall into several of the trends. I have a good feeling that it’s going to be an awesome season. I’m sure you’ll get to bust out your new bag soon. <3
