90s Shoulder Bags

With trends like low-rise pants, bucket hats and vests still being on the top of the must-have list, it is really no surprise that accompanying 90’s inspired shoulder bags continue on an upwards trend. There is a lot to love about this small, but mighty bag that can easily be slung over your shoulder. Personally, I appreciate how this 90s shoulder bag adds to your outfit without necessarily overpowering it. Shop Y2K inspired handbags to add to your fall and winter wardrobe below!

Chain-link Bags

Say hello to the trending handbag that packs a punch. Posh bags with large, chunky chain shoulder straps make quite the statement and tend to lean towards a more punky, yet sophisticated aesthetic. The chain-link actually suits quite a lot of different handbag silhouettes too. From pouches, to structured bodies, to dumpling bags, the metallic hardware accentuates each style well. Choose either a gold or silver metal – whatever suits your style the most.

Fuzzy Textures

Fall and winter handbags are all about texture. Jackets are not the only ones getting the 3D treatment. Fuzzy styles are back again as one of the most sought after 2021 fall winter handbags. There is a bit of a variety with this trend too. There are quite a few chic options with shearling, sherpa, long-pile faux-fur and cowhide. Although this handbag trend leans a bit more on the neutral side, I am also loving the more daring textured bags in bold colors and statement animal prints.

Boxy Bags

If you are seeking a handbag that has the ability to instantly act as a facelift for even the most simplistic of outfits, I would have to direct you to this next fall winter handbag trend. Boxy handbags with short, top shoulder straps are nothing short of classy. The sharp lines and structured body can make any outfit combination look elegant and refined, making it a covetable item for those who want something timeless and able to live on throughout the seasons.

Coin Purse Closures

For a vintage vibe, check out the coin purse trend (also known as kiss lock). This traditional style of closure gets a modern revamp by being attached to contemporary bodies and colors. I continue to see this detailing on both petite, small coin purses, as well as larger shoulder bags and totes. It is a smaller handbag detail but I do think it makes a big difference in the overall aesthetic of the look. This coin purse closure trend will add some charm to any look!

Seeing Green

Tired of your neutral bags and are looking for something to stand out from the crowd? The hottest fall and winter handbags come in a punchy, jewel toned green. This attention-grabbing shade conveniently pairs well with earthy tones, blacks and creams – all common colors in a standard fall winter wardrobe. But it also surprisingly can look just as stylish with other brighter colors like navy blue and purple. Both designers and more affordable handbag brands are jumping on board the green train so do not be afraid to give it a spin!
