2016 Fall Leather Handbag Trends

As summer is coming to an end, many department stores are clearing out their summer merchandise and making way for fun fall finds. If you are an avid shopper or simply looking to update your closet with a few trendy pieces, you may be on the lookout for a great handbag that will be trendy and stylish. Paying attention to runway trends is a great predictor as to what styles, colors, shapes and sizes will be popular. Here are a few of the leather handbag trends that are expected to be trendy in the fall of 2016.

Circular Handbags

One of the most unique trends to appear on fall runway shows was the circular purse. This is a small handbag that is typically cross-body style. However, instead of being square or oval in shape, the handbag itself is circular. This shape makes the handbag standout, so if you love fashion, this is a great shape to look for in a leather handbag for the fall.

Drawstring Reticule Bags

Another trend that is expected to be popular with purses in the fall of 2016 is the drawstring reticule bags. A drawstring reticule bag is most commonly associated with coin or jewel bags. You throw the items in the bag and then pull the drawstring to tighten it. This type of bag is commonly made from soft fabrics, such as velvet or cotton. However, the trend on the runway was to make these bags bigger and use them for purses and use materials, such as leather, that are more commonly used for handbags. If you are looking for something fun and girly, this style may be perfect for you.

Bags With Chain Details

The last trend that is expected to be big in fall 2016 is bags with chain detail. The mixing of leather and metal chains creates a modern yet edgy look that is sure to appeal to those looking to make a statement with their bag. Some bags have chain detail along the main body of the purse, while others incorporate the chain detail in the strap of the purse. Regardless, of where the chain detail is implemented, both gold and silver metal chains adding a bit of shine to an otherwise basic leather handbag.

Department stores are beginning to put out their fall inventory, making it a great time to buy. Selection is great and you don't have to worry about not finding the color or style you are looking for. Paying attention to trends that were seen on fall 2016 runway shows can help clue you in to what styles will be popular this year. If you are looking for a trendy leather handbag for fall, consider one that is circular, is a drawstring reticule bag or has chain detailing on it. Check out a store like S.Marco to start shopping.
