A truly great handbag is the best accessory to your every day look. From roomy totes to tiny party clutches, a bag is your best friend wherever you are headed. And with the holidays just around the corner, the question remains the same: which style to choose?
Discover the most coveted bags of the season in a variety of price ranges and how to style them:
1. The Monogram Bag
Logos are here to stay and designers are bringing their vintage monograms back this season for a more subtle and sophisticated look. Pair it casually with jeans, a leather blazer, and a striped sweater for that parisian chic look.
2. The Chain Strap Bag
Ever since Bottega Veneta introduced their chained version of their Cassette bag, bulky chains on bags became more and more apparent. This bag makes a simple fall/winter look stand out in the crowds with its bulky hardware. To spice up your look, match it with a long coat and boots.
3. The Shopper
Being back on campus means being back to business. A shopper style bag has plenty of room for all of your classroom essentials, and can spice up an outfit with its distinctive silhouette and bold designs. Get your hands on the Telfar x UGG collection while its available!
4. The Shearling Bag
Colder weather calls for a warm and fuzzy accessory like a shearling bag. We have been seing lots of it this season, so dont miss out on the opportunity to keep up with trends and make your outfit extra cozy!
5. The 90's Inspired Shoulder Bag
With nostalgia being more present than ever in fashion, 90’s trends such as the shoulder bag are back in style. With shorter straps and a sleek look, this bag is perfect for a tailored look, and some designers such as Celine have more casual options for a weekend outfit with a pop of colour.

The 2000s are another cultural period which is experiencing a fashion renaissance, with designers such as Bottega Veneta and The Row bringing the Hobo bag back into the spotlight. This bag is perfect for an effortless look, as commonly seen on the Olsen twins, and for having a practical bag for all you need to carry.
