You don’t need a full class schedule to have an excuse to jump on fall’s hottest handbag trend — leather backpacks. Whether you’re looking for a more fashionable alternative to that ratty tote you’ve been taking to lectures or just want to relive your school days in a more fashion-forward take on your everyday work bag, leather backpacks are convenient, versatile, and way more luxe than your old canvas Jansport! 

Coach is known for its classic leather goods, so it’s no wonder they’ve created an upscale take on the backpack to add to the collection of hobos, satchels, and wristlets. Combine two trends in one with this convertible Khirma Eliazov bucket bag with backpack straps, which can take you from class or work to a party in a cinch! 

I also love this Sabina leather backpack, which is made from the softest leather and has plenty of zip pockets for all your loot! And don’t forget the Tylie Malibu Bender bag, which adds studded hardware to edge up the classic shape.

Topshop Faux Fur Lock ClutchWe can’t say enough about faux fur this season. Not only does it have animal friendliness to its credit, it’s perfectly luxurious and so plush to the touch. If you aren’t ready to wear faux fur clothing, though, take note of this cute clutch. Awash in soft, touchable faux fur and finished with a synthetic leather flap and sturdy lock, it’s a fabulous piece that brings instant elegance to fall’s most stunning evening looks.

Jessica Simpson Cypress Faux Leather HoboA sturdy bag done in a rich tan is a fall essential. With its glazed, buckled looking faux leather and smart details, this hobo is a great choice to see you through the season. It’s thoughtfully designed to address the needs of the modern woman - pockets for your electronics, compartments for your makeup - and features plenty of space within to hold the day’s necessities. Just a hint of lightweight gold hardware gives it an edge, resulting in an endlessly chic, time-honored look you’ll love for years. The reasonable price is just a bonus! In three colors.

Steve Madden Bkatia SatchelAt no other time of the year does eggplant even come close to being as relevant (color-wise, natch) as it is now. This just-right satchel is perfect in every way, from its dramatic-yet-practical hue to its structured shape. You can count on hitting all the right notes whether you take it to the office or use it to wake up a basic weekend look. With such an accessible price (and such a luxurious look!), there’s no reason not to indulge. Also in black and stone.
