Best Bag trends of Fall 2011

Fall 2011 has been all about vintage inspired looks pulling inspiration from the 60's and 70's. Think geometric prints in luxe fabrics or embellished with exquisite details. You can never go wrong with a classic bag either from luxe houses from Louis Vuitton or Chanel. You will find the following list helpful in deciding what to what this fall!

Python Print
Python print bags in any medium are all over the place. They were walking down the runway at the major fashion labels like Chloe and Lanvin and they have now turned up in your favorite high street boutique. You can get this look for less if you visit your favorite shop and look for a bag with gold metal touches and chain straps. Or, you can get the Chloe version that comes in a fabulous hobo shape. Talk about delicious!

The Classic
Classic bags from your favourite designers are always the best standby for year round fashion. From the Louis Vuitton Speedy to the Chanel quilted 2.55, there is a luxury bag for everyone. One new and unexpected designer in the luxe hand bag is Victoria Beckham. All of her designs are classic and reminiscent of her favourite Birkin bag. These are timeless purses that will last you for years. Celebrities and even Posh herself carrying her namesake Victoria Beckham bags all around Hollywood. Talk about a crossover success!

A Modern Clutch
Revered as dainty and lady like, the clutch is making a comeback as a day bag. They have grown in size and some even feature tiny straps for those moments when you cannot possibly hold your bag. Anything goes when it comes to the clutch. If you want to be super trendy, think hard edges and metallic finishes. 3.1 Phillip Lim has some great selection for day to night clutches if you are looking for one that matches an urban style.

The Statement Piece
If you really want to stand out, then grab a bag that will look like a piece of sunshine in falls dark colors. A bright color blocked bag from Celine or a hard clear plastic design from Valentino are fabulous examples of styles you can get to make you stand out this fall.
In conclusion, it does not matter if you have one of the latest Victoria Beckham bags or a python stunner.

The trend in 2012 looks set to continue with embellishments everywhere mixed with timeless designs.

The bags of Fall 2011 are all about making a statement that is both functional and high fashion.  Let's see what 2012 brings!
