Pretty handbags are the perfect excuses to get stylishly organised – pockets and zipped compartments guised in luscious leather and gorgeous embellishments. Helping keep you stylishly coordinated this season are handbags that mix glamour with functionality. From spacious to studded, here are styles and shapes to consider carrying this fall.
The Doctor’s Bag
Perhaps it’s just what the doctor ordered to keep us fashionably sane, healthy and of course, neat. The doctor’s bag silhouette is timeless – combining stiff masculine lines and feminine curves that begin and end elegantly.

The Top Handle Bag
Whether a tote or with shoulder straps, top-handle bags are ultra-chic and feminine, beautifully exuding the ladylike theme of the season. The arc handles give structure to the handbag’s graceful and minimal detailing such as tassels and sleek, shiny hardware.

The Studded Handbag
Sophisticated with just a hint of edge, fall’s micro-studded handbags are fun and edgy. Whatever the shape and size of the bag, the mini metal studs adorning them will bring out the punk in all of us.
