Nothing ushers in a new season quite like brand-new fashion trends. While some may look to the changing leaves and crisp temperatures as a sign of fall’s imminent arrival, we prefer to shop for new seasonal basics like sweaters, jeans, boots, and of course, handbags.

From understated woven bags to bold snakeskin, the below 2020 handbag trends are just as stylish as they are timeless.
If you’re looking to invest in a stylish and high-quality bag that will last for years to come, you’re in the right place. Below, shop the 2020 handbag trends we’re eyeing this fall and beyond.
2020 Handbag Trend #1: Woven Everything
If we had to select one definitive 2020 handbag trend, it would be the woven bag. Popularized by Bottega Veneta’s now iconic Cassette Bag, the woven look has spread across the industry like wildfire. Our Edie bag aligns with this on-trend aesthetic, featuring soft leather basket weave, a convenient crossbody strap, and a zipped top. It comes in six neutral colorways and most importantly, it’s incredibly affordable.

2020 Handbag Trend #2: Texture-Rich Stitching
If you’re looking for a more subtle take on the woven bag trend, meet the stitched bag. This texture-rich 2020 handbag trend has flourished at fast and high-fashion retailers alike, and remains a popular style heading into fall and winter. With its stitched chevron pattern and soft leather exterior, our Sunny bag is a high-quality and affordable version of the trend. This versatile crossbody comes in six muted colors and features three organizational compartments.
2020 Handbag Trend #3: Animal Print
From leopard and cheetah to snakeskin and zebra, it’s clear that animal print is back in a big way. This 90s-inspired look experienced a bold resurgence in 2019 and 2020 — you can now find skirts, sweaters, tops, hair accessories, shoes, and more in every eye-catching print. With its simple design and beige handles, our snakeskin Esamy bag is a perfectly understated take on this 2020 handbag trend. This oversized tote is large enough to house all your work essentials, but fun enough for every weekend occasion.
2020 Handbag Trend #4: Circle Hardware
From Chloé to Mansur Gavriel, countless fashion brands have released their take on the circle hardware bag. From ring handles to metal detailing as seen on our Jil bag, this trend has multiple applications and shows no signs of slowing down. If you’re looking for a more affordable take on the look, consider the Jil. It can be used as a clutch, wallet, or crossbody and comes in eight palatable colors. This compact style still offers plenty of organizational compartments, including 16 credit card slots and zip and slip pockets.
2020 Handbag Trend #5: Sleek Belt Bags
Meet the Fanny Pack’s more sophisticated cousin. Belt bags have been around since the 1980s and recently experienced a modern-day revival. These sleek, convenient styles are perfect for all-day events like music festivals, as well as everyday tasks like running errands or traveling for work. With its framed exterior, detachable strap, and secure snap closure, our Yves bag checks all the boxes. It comes in three colors and can be worn as a belt, short crossbody, wallet, or clutch.
