As you round out your fall wardrobe, don't forget to update one essential category: your handbag collection. This season has brought a crop of cool new styles, from beaded bags to micro-minis, seen on the arms of the fashion girls everywhere. And while you could shell out for the pricey designer iterations, you can actually find all the major fall bag trends at Zara for a whole lot less.
Zara is one of the most reliable high street retailers for providing the latest trends to shoppers as soon as they're spotted on street style stars. So when these fall handbag trends started popping up all over the fashionable set, it was a matter of time before similar styles arrived at the popular store.
Take, for example, the bucket bag trend that has been going strong for a few seasons. The beauty of this bag is in its size and versatility – roomy enough to stow your daily essentials, and polished enough to carry from casual errands to more upscale events. Zara quickly picked up on the trend's continuing dominance and offers several takes on the style, like the $59.90 Rock Bucket Bag. The stud-adorned handbag is an edgy option, perfect for giving super-feminine dresses some toughness or lending interest to skinny jeans and a sweater.
The retailer also provides opportunity to add vintage flair to your closet by way of prominent and of-the-moment beaded bags. The fashion crowd-beloved bag trend is available in a few different forms at Zara, including this Mini Beaded Bucket Bag for $59.90. You'll come to consider it the hardest working bag in your collection, since it hits on not just the beaded trend but also covers the mini and bucket styles du jour.
And if you still haven't hopped aboard the universal animal print trend, here's a tempting (not to mention affordable) way to get in on the fun: Zara's snakeskin Animal Print Belt Bag is just $29.90 and effortlessly chic. Use it to add interest to a basic black dress, or style it with suiting separates for a bold downtown vibe.
The trends don't stop there. Zara is stocking plenty of options under $60 to satisfy every current style, like bold crossbody bags, oversized shoppers, and micro-minis that hold little more than your cellphone.
