Fall is officially here and a new crop of backpack trends is about to make the transition much more enticing. As spotted on the runways from New York to Paris, bags are noticeably more playful for Fall 2019. From doubling up to two bags at once to smaller-than-ever micros and shearling details, this season's best backpacks are anything but basic.
Straight from the runways, these are the top trends to know and shop now. Chloé, Lanvin, Chanel, Fendi would empty your wallet at once though. We covered some styles in the below overview that will upgrade your look and keep your money safe!
1. Crocodile effect.
Elevate your look with the help of a luxe croc-embellished bag. The trend took over runways from New York to Paris, done in everything from python-inspired textures to glam all-black box bags. Available at every price point, the trend comes in both real and faux iterations.
2. The Oversize Daypack.
Good news for those rebelling against the mini-bag trend: Giant carryall totes are making their return for fall. From Proenza Schouler to Giambattista Valli, oversize bags staged a comeback on the runway. In the wise words of Fabolous, "Just throw it in the bag."
3. Chain Reaction.
Chain straps are back in full force. JW Anderson supersized the look on its fall runway with an oversize gold chain strap, while Carolina Herrera, Altuzarra, Chloé, and more stuck with classic chains.
Bags are continuing to shrink smaller and smaller. This season saw an all-time record, with Jacquemus's tiny bags that were barely big enough to fit a pair of AirPods. Designers like Ferragamo, however, managed to deliver micro bags that can still hold a tiny bit more. The takeaway? Only carry things that *truly* spark joy.
5. Cozy Up.
You'll be able to snuggle up to your handbags this season. Shearling, faux fur, and fuzzy textures took over many of fall's must-have bags. From Chanel's cozy après-ski accessories to colorful shaggy totes at Off-White, your on-the-go essentials will definitely be keeping warm next fall.
