Fall’s Must-Have Handbags
October 10, 2019

“Life is short. Buy the bag.”


Whether you prefer a classic look or a trendy ensemble (or maybe it just depends on the day), you can have your style in the bag by having a handbag to match.  Retailers in Southlake Town Square have their fingers on the pulse of style, so pop in to check out the latest.  This fall, get your look in the bag!

Here are a few of our favorite trends:


Clean lines, squared-off shapes, classic colors, a timeless quality: There’s a reason why these bags are always in style. This fall, these classics are freshened with some fun color-blocking. Find great pieces at Draper James, which recently opened at Southlake Town Square.

Unusual Shapes

Anthropologie and Francescas are showing another great trend for fall: Handbags in unexpected, or unusual, shapes that add fun, visual interest to your look. Whether it’s geometric (think circles and spheres) or gathered (think pleats, tucks and folds), the magic here is in the overall outline where the shape can grab the attention while the colors are more muted.

Belt Bags

OK, so this trend doesn’t involve hands at all! Worn on the belt or as a crossbody, belt bags are HOT this season for both men and women. These bags from COACH at Southlake Town Square are seen in a wide variety of aesthetics — from streamlined prints to embellished styles – all with that awesome hands-free ability. COACH is also showing convertible bags with loops on the back to allow you to wear them on your actual belt for a classic, streamlined look.

Stadium & State Fair Chic

Going to the State Fair of Texas, headed to a football game at AT&T Stadium or maybe cheering on your local high school? New bag regulations at many sports and concert venues require a clear bag, or a bag no bigger than your phone. Brighton and Apricot Lane offer some great options. Whichever way you go, make sure to sport your team pride AND be fashionable with these colorful add-ons!


2019 has seen a neo-boho revival in fashion that would make Janis Joplin and everyone at Woodstock very happy. Bohemianism is back, and in a big way. Details like colorful embroidery, patchwork, and hand-tooled leather (or, the modern-day equivalent, laser cutting) are found in everything from totes to clutches and crossbody bags at Brighton and Johnny Was

Embellished Clutches

They’re not just for your evening gown anymore! Clutches with sparkles, beads, and other embellishments are everywhere. Perfect for daytime or evening, a colorful clutch allows you to incorporate pattern and color into your look.  Here are some of our favorites from Francescas!
