Structured Handbags Are The Big Purse Trend Of The Season

For anyone wondering how to update their choice of accessories for Fall 2017, there’s nothing quite like a structured, boxy handbag to seal the deal. Whether you’re sporting a dark pantsuit or a little red dress, adding the perfect purse can help to elevate your outfit of the day to new heights. We’ve curated a few runway looks that will inspire your accessory statement for the season ahead.


At Gucci, bright crimson was an eye-catching look which instantly brightened handbags and brought a colourful finish to the trend. We are liking the wooden handle which completes this design, along with the contrasting white python print and the metallic accents.


The Altuzarra runway featured a rich burgundy shade that perfectly complements the season’s colour palette. Try pairing a similar textured satchel with red and oxblood tones, in order to truly bring your seasonal wardrobe to life.


At Fendi, basic black and white was brought to brand new heights. The look of sleek ivory and basic black leather is suitable for a business chic vibe, while exposed zippers and metallic handles wrap up the design. Meanwhile, pairing the purse with pointed toe red boots and a grey tweed skirt can enhance your style.
