Fall puts us in the mood for new boots, luxe layers and rich autumnal hues. It’s prime time for layering different textures and tones, but we like to take things a step further by bringing a bold bag into the mix. Grab one in a color or print that doesn’t necessarily scream fall—take a cherry red satchel or a floral crossbody, for instance—and you’ve got a chic look that’s completely unexpected. With so many colorful and embellished bags out there this season, adding a pop of color or wow-worthy detail is as easy as pie (we’ll take apple, please). Read on to see our outfit-making picks.

We think vibrant florals are just the thing to transition from summer to fall. They carry a spirited vibe from season to season—and instantly add color and pattern to any look. This one’s a no-brainer: throw on a floral crossbody with denim and go.

A pale shade of pink might not immediately come to mind when you think of a fall color palette, and that’s exactly why we love it. It’s luxe and unexpected with autumnal hues like rich golds and oranges.

Perhaps the boldest of the bunch, a red bag has the power to seriously amp up fall tones. Pair it with the obvious—think black and grey—or add a daring color, like a dark shade of purple, for a study in contrast that works.
