A Sneak Peek at Fall 2014 Handbag Trends

A Sneak Peek at Fall 2014 Handbag Trends

If you're not quite sure about investing in one of the big Spring handbag trends such as Neon Yellow Satchels or a See-Through Bag - perhaps holding off until a version of one of these Fall 2014 Fashion Week runway looks hits the stores - will be a better option.

What kinds of shapes and materials do you look for in a handbag?  Do you change your bag each month, or use one for the entire season?

"Handbags are like a deep psychological need... and I have this Ferragamo hot-pink bag that I adore. My view was that I would carry it around only in spring, but it makes me so happy, I'm even now lugging it around in January. I mean, how can you be unhappy if you pick up a big pink bag? - Hillary Clinton"

    I have always carried a bigger bag, but now have downsized to a small black leather organizer bag that has a wallet built in. I don't like changing my bag and I generally keep the same one for about 5 yrs. or so

    I carry 2 each season, 1 for business and 1 for casual, with a clutch for special occasions.

    I'm drooling over that Bottega Veneta, and that Celine, and that Viktor and Rolf. I should step out and try something more daring, because I'm generally too conservative, and it's true what Hillary is saying about a handbag being able to make you feel happy!

    I am not interested in everyone seeing what is in my purse. I really like the Akris bag.

    Fall handbags?!?! But, but . . . I haven't even updated my Spring handbag yet!?! Love the Vionnet and the Diesel pictured, though. I typically stick with black, possibly with silvertone detailing, and shoulder straps, when it comes to bags. I'm thinking maybe something crocheted like The Sak for summer, and this article has inspired me to consider incorporating some fun colors into my purse collection.

    I love the bright colors of spring and summer. I carry a block bag in winter. I like the mid size bags.
