For a lot of people — myself not included — fall shopping doesn’t mean a total closet refresh. Generally, if those dark-wash jeans and oversized sweaters from last year still fit and you haven’t drastically changed your style, you’re in pretty good shape.
Still, if you (understandably) don’t want to miss out on all of the shopping excitement, picking up a new bag or two is a totally low-lift way to freshen up your entire look. Thankfully, there are a lot of options both new and old to choose from. Like, a lot.
We’ve pulled together a glimpse of what this season has to offer, from the classic crossbody and tote styles that will always be staples to the very of-now top-handle, circle, and guitar-strap bags you’ve probably seen all over your Instagram feed for the last six months. No matter your budget or style, let the picks below help you narrow in on your new fall go-to.
