6 Fall Bags For Luxe Style

Although the thought of packing away all our straw summer bags is slightly depressing, a new crop of bag trends is about to make the transition to fall much more enticing. And all in time for university classes, first (or new) jobs, and internships.

The best work and school bags are a little bit of everything at once: They’re professional, stylish, and reliable, but not too stuffy. Roomy enough to juggle gym sneakers, a laptop, and the odd trinket or two. The best bags, while not required, but still appreciated – can be worn multiple ways.

But which style is right for you?

The Fits Everything Tote
For the everyday working woman. It’s your “live-in” Monday through Friday bag.

The Fun, Wild One
All you need sometimes is a little animal print. Use it to complement a fun weekend activity or perk up a dull day.

A little texture can bring your bag game to A-List level. Pick one that is high in quality as you’re guaranteed to get heavy mileage out of it.

Little Black Bag
A black bag sends the message that you mean business. It’ll become your most loyal and useful companion, but versatile enough to take you from boardroom to dinner.

Small, But Not Too Small
Just big enough to carry your essentials like wallet, keys, phone, and makeup, but small enough to be the ultimate ladylike option to complement your wardrobe.

The Sporty Option
Sometimes a girl’s gotta have a bag that you can grab for a weekend adventure or road trip.

Carol Liu
Carol’s look may be minimalist, and her favorite clothing lines known for simplicity, but she works her role as Marketing Coordinator to the maximum and with her super-power energy. Organized and button down, Carol rolls up those chic sleeves and gets it done. Throw in a journalism background to keep it real, and a great quick smile to deliver the spin. Which reminds us, she’s fast too. Must be all that running.
