Chains have been having a major moment for quite some time now, meaning they're everywhere from luxury to affordable retailers. While there are several other lovely handbag trends we're backing this fall, it's the heavy hardware of the chain-adorned styles that keeps us coming back for more. If you've already been a fan of this bag style, then you're well aware that its popularity has only increased as time has gone on, so the options may feel endless from a shopper's standpoint. The good news, however, is that we've done all the heavy lifting for you.
Ahead, I rounded up the 27 best chain handbags for fall, from Bottega Veneta to H&M. Since we're all operating on different budgets, I made sure to include every price point on the map so that you're guaranteed to leave here with at least one new chain bag in your cart. Happy shopping!
Skip the jewelry, and instead opt for a chunky chain handbag. You'll be surprised just how much glam one single strap can add to your look.
Toughen up a simple suiting look with a sporty chain-adorned handbag. As someone who owns this Prada bag, I can assure you it's basically four bags in one.
If you're looking to splurge on a handbag this fall, Bottega Veneta's newest cassette bag should definitely be top of mind.
It's not only metal chains that are trending this fall. Everything from acetate to colored plastic linked straps is making a name for itself.
Everyone loves a BY FAR handbag. While a classic brown or black style is always a great idea, the new fall colors like the bright fuchsia below are the hues winning my heart this season.
Even the most casual of ensembles can greatly benefit from the luxe look of a shiny chunky chain.
This look is proof that there is no such thing as too many chains. Wear them on your clothes, your shoes, and your bags, and call it a day.
See? The new Bottega bag is worth the investment. But I am definitely 100% biased, so what do I know?
When worn around the wrist, a chain strap looks just as good (if not better) as a chunky bracelet.
