Burgundy may be the perfect fall color; it’s rich, versatile and basically a neutral, but it’s not quite as obvious a choice as an actual neutral. Black, grey, tan, navy–burgundy looks flawless with all of them, and depending on the undertones of the particular shade, it can read as anything from a particularly warm brown to just a shade off aubergine. All of that, of course, makes it a perfect choice for a new handbag.

Burgundy (or, as everyone suddenly decided to call it, oxblood) had a huge fall last year, and based on the deliveries currently rolling into stores, the industry’s appreciation for the color hasn’t abated. If you’re all stocked up on traditional neutrals and want something a little bit more interesting in your wardrobe that will still be appropriate for frequent use, we’ve got 20 options below, in a variety of shapes and price ranges.

So many of these are so pretty. Burgundy/wine is such an attractive leather color.

You missed the most beautiful bag in oxblood IMO, the Antigona!

I tried to pick bags that we don’t have on here all the time! Except for the Peekaboo, because that leather treatment was just too pretty to pass up. I trust all of you to develop affection for the oxblood Antigona without any assistance on my part 🙂

We do! The Givenchy Antigona in oxblood is more beautiful than these beautiful burgundy bags.

Part of the list should have been one of the oxblood Mulberry bags of AW14! Absolutely beautiful!

I can’t stand that Rebecca Minkoff bag, the stitching hurts my OCD :(.

The Rebecca Minkoff looks like a straight knock-off of the small Chanel Boy. How unoriginal.

The Balenciaga is too tall for me. I saw it in store and liked it, but somehow I couldn’t picture myself in something so plain and tall. I LOVE Burgundy but I wish the bags were more innovative.

I just think this color looks very “old lady.”
