From our friend at thefind.com:
While bright coral bags were the hot accessory of the summer, the fall has lent itself to a richer must-have handbag hue! Deep wine-colored bags are decking the department store racks and e-shelves, serving as a new elegant everyday accessory that makes a statement without verging on too loud. Think of it as the perfect cold-weather neutral tone to go with all your new fall and winter wardrobe! Choose a slouchy messenger-style satchel like this Melie Bianco ‘Ariana’ cross-body bag, or buckle up with something more sleek, square, and streamlined like this Lanvin Leather Tote in a rich merlot hue. If you’re looking for a take-everything bag that can be used at work, during the weekend, and beyond, look no further than the Diane von Furstenberg ‘Elaine’ Leather Shoulder Bag which has loads of compartments for all your loot. And lastly, if you’re on the prowl for the perfect mini clutch, this multi functional Vera Bradley Flap ID in Wine in wine provides a classy alternative to the more severe black and metallic versions!
