In preparation for the change of season, a new trend-right bag can set the pace as a directional staple piece for your 2022 Fall wardrobe! As designer handbags continue to raise their prices, we love the option of non-logo driven bags that allow for unique designs, high craftsmanship and top quality without the sky-high prices.

What’s trending for Fall? The trending neutral colors are chalk and black. We’re also seeing pleating, ruching, croc, fuzz, shine and innovative hardware that will carry you straight into the holiday season. In anticipation of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie, the sensationalized Barbiecore trend is taking form in fabulous fuchsia and rhinestones! 

We have selected 12 bags from trusted brands and up and coming labels we love that create both classic and trend-right bags which offer an ideal balance of high quality and wearability.


In selecting a piece for work, we love a great top-handle “Power Bag” in sophisticated, classic leather. When it comes to structure, a top-handle silhouette speaks to confidence in the office. Become a trailblazer at your next meeting with the visual aid of a bag in intriguing, authoritative colors like red, maroon or emerald. Speak to both your classic and creative side with neutral colored bags in patterns like croc skin.

A leather crossbody is hands free and promotes freedom while shopping, traveling or experiencing a day on the go. We love a crossbody that invokes elevation to even your most casual outfits. This bag should feel chic, yet productive for everyday tasks and travel.

Shoulder bags serve as a fabulous transitional bag. They hold more than a going out bag, but not as much as a typical work bag. We love these pieces for desk-to-dinner outings and for going out to lunch – But these bags are also great for those who just simply don’t like bigger bags! Since this bag is transitional, this is a great bag to keep in neutral colors, while using it’s pattern or shape to speak to trends.

This is the bag that is perfect for exploring trends. Typically, a going out bag is on the smaller side, but you’ll still want it to be big enough to fit your phone, wallet, keys and and any other small essentials for the evening, such as lipstick! Let your bag be an extension of elegance and drama! Pop colors (like trending Barbiecore fuchsia), sparkles, feathers and unique shapes are all elements in a purse that insert a pop of fun into your ensemble.

Sustainable Pre-Loved Bags at a Discount

Another option we love are Senreve’s pre-owned bags. These sustainable pre-loved and refurbished bags are top-rated pieces restored to like-new quality, which makes these typically expensive bags fall into a much more affordable price range. We love an eco-friendly approach that also saves money! Senreve dedicates their company to a zero-waste approach in their business by creative use of their excess materials and producing limited quantities of their products to limit what ends up in a landfill.
