The satchel is the traditional bag with a handle. It's more structured and sturdy — great for the gal who has a lot of stuff to bring in her bag. It also works well at the office.

This is similar to what we saw in the summer with color block, but it's now extended into fall with colors like black, grays, tans and whites. It's a great way to add a pop of color to your look.

This is the shape for the season. It's bigger than a traditional clutch which makes it a great carryall, and it transitions perfectly from the office to dinner or a date.

Cobalt is such a fun color this season. It's a great color that blends well with most anything. It will brighten up your look during the cooler fall days and nights.
