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.

Kelly & Katie Betty Over the Knee BootsIn no uncertain terms, over the knee boots are still 100% hot this season - and thank goodness, because there’s no way to choose just one pair of these stunning shoes. And forget about retiring your favorite dresses and skirts for the season, because you can safely sport them with a pair of tights and Kelly and Katie’s sleek boots. Lightly accented with grommet details, they look fabulous with leggings and skinny jeans, too. Also in brown.

L.12.12 is the ultra-hip code name for the original Lacoste polo shirt, invented in 1927 by René Lacoste as a comfortable, breathable new tennis uniform. 83 years later, this timeless classic is a favorite on and off the tennis court, coming in colors to suit every mood for men, women and kids.

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.

Banana Republic Victoria NecklaceSpotted on fall 2010 runways and deftly worked into everything from bags to eveningwear, crochet proved itself surprisingly chic this year. Though crocheted fabrics do boast a decidedly summery, lightweight vibe, you can still embrace the look when the weather cools down with a statement-making accessory, like this intricate necklace. Combining an acrylic/cotton twill blend with gold-tone metal and taupe ribbon, it’s a dazzling piece guaranteed to invigorate your wardrobe this season.
