15 Red Hot Bags to Brighten Your Wardrobe—Fall 2018 Edition

I'm dying for a red bag and with these perfect picks you'll soon be too

Just like last year, red bags are back for fall 2018 and they are as red hot as ever. As I said recently, I’ve always liked the idea of owning a red bag, and now more than ever I’m considering my next big bag buy to be a red one. I do have my eye on two Saint Laurent bags in particular, and I did go to try them both on in-store, but after reading some of the comments on my last post I started to dig around a bit more to see what else was out there. The more I dug the more apparent it became that red is indeed back and just as big as ever for fall 2018. While bordeaux was huge amongst designers lineups the last few fall seasons, I’m starting to think that red is surpassing it this season. Below I’ve rounded up 15 of my favorite picks so you can hop aboard the red train too!

That Wandler bag though?!?! Love it too much this morning. Side note: thanks for including some different brands lately. I’ve scooped up a few bags lately from designers I would not have otherwise known about.

Unless you have a steel shoulder otherwise the studs strap on Valentino will kills you LOL. Didn’t they think before they design the bag

I have a Valentino Rockstud tote and the studs do hurt in the summer but they don’t bother me in the winter. It’s so pretty I still wear it in summer anyway.

This difference for the bag above is there are studs on both side of the strap so the studs will be sitting on your shoulder lol

I thought I hated that toothy Marmont-rip LV bag but now…everything looks better in red!

Ha! I hate to say I like it because so many of you are not about it at all, but I do kinda dig it!

The LV Wave bag is SO fugly. I’m so sorry but it’s not LV at all. Looks like a Gucci wannabe…

I agree it’s awful. LV needs to stick to the classics!

Get a red bag! You will never regret it. Three years ago i bought a classic Prada top handle in red and I love it. Red is more versatile than you think. A red handbag looks great with an all black outfit as well a neutral outfit. It adds pop to your wardrobe. Good luck. I can’t wait to see your purchase.

That Gucci bag is stunning! I also saw someone carrying the Yzefi just this morning and was so intrigued by it, so this is a super timely post.

Other red bags I’d add to the list are the Mulberry Bayswater and the Strathberry. Stunning! comment image comment image

Love that Strathberry! Mulberry is here, slide 5! The croc stole my heart, but this solid one is pretty too 🙂

Oh the croc! Haha completely missed it since I was thinking about the solid one. The croc is also super pretty.

I have the Strathberry nano in white and I really love it. Great bag.

It’s so weird that an iconic brand mimics another famous brand? Why is LV trying to look like Chanel/Gucci and Mulberry like Hermes and Balenciaga like LV and PRada like Valentino? So strange.

I just love love love the Ferragamo Studio bag! After seeing the post in the spring about the antique rose color it’s been all I can think about! Love the look of the soft leather with the gold hardware and it looks like it sits on the body very nicely. Maybe someday!
