Who said diamonds are a girl´s best friend was totally wrong. Bags are! When looking at fall´s hottest bag designs, we really have to force ourselves to not splurge on too many. Designers are offering offbeat shapes, extravagant materials, upgraded versions of classic models and cool details like big chains, logos and embellishments. So, breathe in deeply now and get your credit cards ready!

DID SOMEONE SAY NECKLACE?
Wearing your handbag around your neck is the next big thing. It might remind you of elderly tourists carrying around some cash on crowded beaches, but with the right design your neck-bag even works as jewellery.

BACK TO MATH CLASS
Forget soft and slouchy, geometric shapes are totally on trend now! Boxes, triangles, cylinders, trapezes – designers are playing with our favourite figures from math class and are giving us a major, way more fun flashback.

ALL THAT GLITTERS
To embrace the disco queen you actually are, you should opt for bejewelled bags. No matter if you are heading into the clubs or just the office, the little glitzy bags will ad some sparkle to your look.

CHAINS GOT AN UPGRADE
When we hear chain bag, we think of Chanel. This fall chain bags are getting an upgrade though. The 2018 version of the classic chain bag has outsized, chunky metal handles that stick out.

ON TOP OF THINGS
From bucket bags to boxy shapes – the bags of the season have a top handle. It might not be the most convenient, but definitely adds some coolness to each outfit.

DRAW A STRING
Drawstring bags made out of soft fabric remind us of our childhood days when we played dress up and walked around with our little bags that just held our fake glitter phones. Being all grown up, these cute and playful bags have also grown with us and hold a little more now.

LOGOMANIA
Logos have long been discredited, but made their way back this fall. Designers are never letting us down on this one, so make sure to invest in a Fendi, Dior or Gucci.
