As 2015 draws to a close, like most people, we start to feel a little contemplative about the year that was. It’s been a big year in accessories, with new creative directors hitting their strides at some of the world’s biggest accessory brands and newcomers cementing their spots in the market.

Botkier-x-Coco-Rocha-London-Crossbody-Bag

We’re racing toward the holidays, and after they pass, the fashion you see on the streets tends to get a little…dark. Black coats, grey sweaters and dark-wash jeans are all solid cold-weather workhorses, but there’s no rule that a practical wardrobe staple has to look boring.

I hope you’re done with burgundy, because according to Pantone, we’re all going to be moving away from Marsala, 2015’s big color trend, and on to something a little bit softer: Rose Quartz and Serenity. The soft shades of pink and blue are Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year.

The rich textures that make up a cold-weather wardrobe are undeniably more luxurious than the thin textiles and woven straws of the summer months, but anything that luxe comes with a price. Because we believe in looking for good values even when shopping high-end things, we’re big fans of shearling, and this winter’s crop of bags is full of it.

Even if you’re not a fan of chilly mornings or pumpkin-flavored things, you have to admit fall’s cozy wardrobe is a welcome change after months in cotton and linen. And we’re not just talking about sweaters and coats; fall bags are a wonderful opportunity to add rich textures to your look, and Amazon Fashion has a wide range of beautiful options, including bags in calf hair, velvet, suede and quilted leather.

Even though not every runway trend makes it to real life (thank goodness), we noticed one from the recently completed Spring 2016 shows that’s as close to a sure thing as it gets: tailored flap shoulder bags of all kinds.

Bags-for-Younger-Shoppers

If you’ve looked around the your favorite department store in the past couple seasons and felt like everything there, from itty bitty micro bags to toy-like bag charms, was designed for kids, there’s a good reason for it: luxury brands are looking to younger consumers with lower incomes to bolster sales.

Balenciaga-Papier-Zip-Around-Belt-Bag

Every few years, designers try to give belt bags (often known in the US by their more pedestrian name: fanny packs) their day in the sun, usually to limited-at-best success. These pushes usually coincide with a general trend toward 70s neo-bohemian fashion, and since that’s what we’re in the middle of right now, there are suddenly a lot of belt bags available.

Gucci-Mini-Interlocking-Shoulder-Bag

Mini bag haters, shield your eyes. As fall arrivals come in left and right, designers have somehow found even more bags to shrink down, including a bunch that had somehow escaped the mini treatment in the past.
