Luckily, handbags are always a good investment because, unlike other wardrobe staples, you can wear them as many consecutive days as you want without getting nailed by the Fashion Police. What’s also serendipitous is that one of our favorite bag trends – the rock ‘n’ roll studded look, is majorly in style for fall. Here are some of our favorites:
The Matt & Nat Scrilla ($101.97, down from $255) is an earthy take on a studded tote with its vegan status and slouchy, easy silhouette. Don’t be fooled – it works just as easily with a chic, nighttime look as it does with jeans and a tee.
In the “Yes, Please!” category, this MICHAEL Michael Kors Uptown Astor Large Shoulder Tote ($448) is pretty much handbag nirvana. We have trouble imagining an outfit this wouldn’t look amazing with, plus it has strap options, always a good thing.
For maximum impact, the Morcheba Clutch from Malene Birger ($445) is your best bet. Because this foldover clutch mixes different metals and shapes, your other accessories will fit right in and further enhance the rocker-glam chicness of this bag. We love it with a cropped blazer and skinny jeans or a little black dress.
Olivia Harris’ lambskin Studded Ball Leather Hobo ($495) mixes a classic chain strap with the super trendy studded look to arrive at a bag that’s edgy and elegant at the same time, bound to be a wardrobe staple for a long time.
And if you’d need to sell your gold fillings to afford some of the pricier studded options, we feel your pain. Thankfully, Old Navy brings us the supercute Old Navy Studded Hobo ($30.50) which has a comfortable carrying shape and an on-trend trim of mixed metal embellishments, and leaves you some money for a killer pair of over the knee boots.
