A Guide to the Season’s Most Fashionable Bags and their Cheaper Counterparts.
At The Divine Addiction, we love this time of year! Perfect weather to cozy up near a fireplace, drink delicious hot chocolate, bring out your favorite comfort food recipes, and of course get in gear for the holidays. We fall head over heels for fall weather and fall fashion! Chunky sweaters, warm boots, deep romantic reds, and our personal favorite, handbags! We all know that a show-stopping handbag can be lethal, especially in the perfect color! A great handbag can bring your entire outfit together – or not. So shop wisely! Size, quality, color and functionality are very important. Fashion trends work as a great guide, but always make sure it works for you and your lifestyle first. Here’s our guide to the season’s hottest handbags… and their cheaper counterparts!
What we love about handbags in the fall is that you get an opportunity to play with so many different textures. From embossed leathers and pony hair to ostrich skins and smooth saffiano leathers. Yes, it is important to have a timeless, classic handbag for everyday use, but be sure to have one that’s a little daring. Textured handbags make great signature pieces. For example, on those days when you wear all black and need a little dimension. Having a color that pops is a great idea, but a handbag with multiple textures will give the entire look depth. When in doubt, less is more; small and subtle details can go a long way.
Look For Less:
MINI CROSS BODY CLUTCH
Crossbody bags are simply amazing! Especially if you are a mom, student, or always on the go. The crossbody style is definitely a go to when you want functionality. Be mindful of the strap size of the bag to be sure it will fit comfortably. Crossbody bags are also a great alternative if you want to carry something barely there and dainty. This is where it gets fun! Trending for fall are small faux fur or animal skin textured bags with beautiful chain style shoulder straps. Another great feature about the small cross body bag is that most of them can be transformed into a great evening clutch! They are perfect for a night out with the ladies or even an amusement park! Because of the size, its strictly made to carry the bare necessities.
