If your idea of handbag heaven is ultra-versatile staples with cool details, this season is for you.

For autumn/winter, bag trends are all about reimagining bold basics – styles you can dress up or down.


Think biker bags, cute fuzzy clutches and supersized shoppers. These are the key trends to know…

1. Studded biker bags

Biker bags are back in a big way, and it’s all about small black leather or suede handbags with bold studded detailing.

To really rev up the action, pair your biker bag with a leather jacket and buckled ankle boots.

2. Nineties-inspired shoulder styles

The Nineties continue to rule fashion, and that means a whole lot of small, over-the-shoulder handbags. You can pick your favourite style – whether it has flap detailing, a logo to love or a turn-lock fastening.

Plus, gold or silver hardware will elevate any look.

3. Chainmail totes

When you want to push the envelope for party season, chainmail is always a winner with its high shine and glossy finish.

Look for slouchy over-the-shoulder styles, or metallic clutches with a delicate chain attached.

4. Large shoppers

Roomy totes are a working wardrobe essential, and this season it’s all about bags with bold typeface and neon colours.

They’re spacious enough to hold everything you need, plus will add a fashionable accent to any outfit.

5. Fuzzy bags

If you’re feeling playful, a faux fur bag is for you.

They’re perfect for these colder days, and are a natural bedfellow with teddy coats. Pair yours with fluffy hats, shoes and anything in a soft texture to make you feel warm and snuggly.
