From refined and defined to loud and stand-out-from-the-crowd, this season, there’s a must-have handbag for every woman! Luxe details, splashes of color and rich fabrics are just a few of the elements that make this roundup of clutches, carryalls, satchels, shoulder bags and totes so remarkable. So get ready to write your “lust” list, ladies, as Bobbie Thomas, Today Style editor and author of the Buzz column for “In Touch Weekly,” talks about the top trends in handbags this season.

PolishedStructured satchels are the perfect accent to fall’s sophisticated fashions. But just because they’re grown-up doesn’t mean they’re predictable. From crisp clutches and small, prim purses to sleek oversized silhouettes, there are all sorts of styles to compliment this season’s buttoned-up clothing. Sharp, clean lines and ladylike top-handles are literally the “frame” of reference to use when choosing a handbag to top off your polished look. And the best part about this trend? These proper pieces are true classics and can be carried over for many seasons to come!
