Bags are trying out for the role of your outfit’s main character this fall. No, they don’t want to just *recede* into the background—they need the spotlight! And applause!
Make way for fuzz (so pettable, your dog might feel jealous), studs (yep, grunge is back in more ways than one), angles (sharp enough to kill a man 🎶), and bags that get a bit weird. Size matters too—on your next flight, you may need to buy an extra seat for your ludicrously capacious tote, so start saving up.
Like the rest of the fall 2023 trends, these bag designs are all about having a ridiculously good time. Let your freak flag fly, wear your baggage with pride, give your fluffy fur purse a nickname—we won’t judge!
Oversized (Like, Really, Really)
Okay, okay, I’ll stop it with the Succession jokes, but let’s be real: Tom Wambsgans is responsible for the resurgence of the tote—in particular, the oversized variety. And honestly? It’s about damn time because I’ve been out here wearing a crossbody, and carrying, like, half of my other necessities between each finger. Thankfully, in fall 2023, designers don’t want you to have to live like that. Throw it all in your tote—there’s plenty of room!

When we’re not fully setting up camp inside our bags this season (because they’re so huge—get it?), we may just be...snuggling them. Truly, your purse could and should cosplay as your family pet this fall because faux fur and shearling and other fluffy materials are claiming this space. These styles are much less of a responsibility than an actual puppy, I might add.

Listen, things are about to take a bit of a turn for the weird and you’re going to have to just lean in. Purses shaped like dinosaurs, bags decked with cookies that look real enough to eat? Those are just the tip of the iceberg, my friend. What you carry is about to say a lot about who you are as a person, so you might as well signal to your adoring fans that kooky doesn’t scare you. Hey, at the very least, these unique bags will be great conversation starters.

We are dainty, we love tea, we are doing our best to make the Queen of England (RIP) proud because top-handle bags are here and as posh as ever. There are so many reasons to love this style of purse (first of all, it’s chiiiiiic), but, IMO, the most important is this: Whether you’re into novelty, sparkles, flashy logos, or understated solids, there’s a top-handle bag for you. Pinkies out now.
