Fall is just around the corner, and there’s no easier way to zhuzh up your new-season look than with a chic, new handbag. They’re an effortless way to add interest to an understated look, and they can be an easy option to get in on some of fall’s biggest trends. From mock-croc styles, slouchy oversize toes, sculptural silhouettes, and snake-effect bags, fall’s biggest bag trends do not disappoint.
We all know, however, how pricey handbags can get. A sleek designer handbag is always a great investment, but if you’re not looking to spend major bucks on your carryall this season, then we have some super-chic options for you (that could easily pass for designer). Below, we’ve rounded up the biggest fall handbag trends that we found for under $100.
Croc-embossed bags continue their reign for fall 2019. Luxurious and opulent in nature, they make every outfit look more expensive. Luckily there are plenty on the market at more affordable price points.
Pillowy Quilted Bag

Quilted clothes had a major moment on the fall 2019 runways (it's a trend we'll be loving once the cold-weather really hits), but we also saw the cozy, duvet-like fabric in the form of cool pouches and totes. Bonus: It can double as a pillow when you're on a plane or riding the subway back home. Score!
From dresses to shoes and bags, the snake-effect print is one of fall's biggest trends. The luxurious texture adds a chic accent to even the simplest jeans-and-sweater outfits. Wear it in the form of a crossbody bag, bucket bag, or belt bag for a fashion-forward look
Boxes and Cubes

Think outside the box with your purse choice this season—with a literal box bag. Your new evening bag takes the shape of sculptural and unique cubes and box shapes that are made to be seen and admired.
The Luxe Pouch
Just one scroll of Instagram and you're likely to come across a whole host of luxury leather pouches under the arms of your favorite fashion muses. If you don't want to pay major bucks for the famous Bottega Venetta pouch, then these options below are chic, affordable alternatives. An oversize option keeps the look modern.
Sure, teeny-tiny handbags were everywhere on the runways, but it's the oversize slouchy tote bags that are winning our hearts for the new season ahead. (Because, quite frankly, we've got a lot of stuff.) A large shopper bag is a great way to be fashion-forward yet also unapologetically practical. Echo the runway and wear it under your arm like a clutch for a cool-girl look.
Round bags are a trend we continue to see pop up and always create a standout look when carried. Go for bright and poppy or understated and luxe.
