There’s just something about a fresh handbag that gets us into the spirit of a new season. Perhaps it’s because bags are the easiest way to lean into fall dressing and test out trends before sweater (and boot and coat) weather arrives. Whatever the reason, we can really never have too many. Lucky for us, Fall 2018 is ushering in a whole slew of shapes that feel updated and exciting.
