Handbag Trends: Fall 2013 

Fall 2013 is on the horizon and it is our job to be prepared. Crocodile leather, pony hair, metal hardware, day clutches, matte black, and backpacks are all in style. After investigating the heavy hitters in the designer handbag category I found the bags that we just need. 

Chanel, Celine, Proenza Schouler, Prada, Versace, and Balenciaga all made our list and are at the forefront of the movement. So let it sink in and be ahead of the ever-changing curve because this fall has so much arm candy to offer. 

Alexander Wang for Balenciaga Fall 2013 - I don't care what people say about this bag, it is gorgeous.
Prada Fall 2013 - I could probably fit my cell phone, wallet, make up, extra pair of shoes, and my dog in this clutch but that doesn't mean it isn't simply stunning. Red crocodile is so my weakness.
Celine Fall 2013 - Just looking at this bag makes me excited for fall.
Chanel Fall 2013 - Pony hair + Boy Bag = LOVE
Chanel Fall 2013 - Side note, this Boy Bag is less structured than the typical Boy Bag and was held down the runway as an oversized clutch... genius.
Proenza Schouler Fall 2013 - This color is amazing and ostrich leather is more amazing.
Celine Fall 2013 - Matte black makes me feel sleek and stylish. This bag might be my favorite.
Versace Fall 2013 - I don't think you can fit your Macbook Pro in this, but who said fashion was functional? This backpack is a great statement for those bold enough to make it.

Now Trending: The Best of Bags

This week on Trendabl we have noticed a lot of HOT handbag posts. Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend has obviously never toted a Celine Trapeze or clutched a classic Chanel. Accessories (handbags, in particular) are known to make or break any outfit. We spent some time perusing the posts and picked out our top 20 bags to feature on the blog. Check them out below:

**REMINDER - we are still donating 10 cents for every image posted to Trendabl to the American Red Cross through tomorrow. NYC has supported Trendabl from the beginning, so its only natural to give the support right back.
