I’m on my way home, and still have much more to share from this fabulous week in Paris. While I didn’t pick up on any overarching style trends this time, I did notice a few “micro” trends which I’ll cover over a few posts.
Fall Bag Trends In Paris
Les Parisiennes also seem to be eschewing heavy, large, bulky bags. I noticed many, many women carrying/wearing two smaller bags, frequently some sort of crossbody style, and a second larger, slouchy tote, quite often a simple cloth bag.
I spied some very chic women carrying (or wearing) bags similar to satchel above, a bit more structured, with a flap closure and both a top handle and longer crossbody strap. I really like this look: polished but not fussy.
Here’s a very budget-friendly version in faux leather.
Slouchy shoulder bags like this one are also seen. They usually aren’t huge, and lay close to the body. I did spot the occasional backpack as well, but less often than the other styles.
Burgundy, red, tan and green (usually a dark green) were the most common alternatives to black. I find both burgundy and dark green to be versatile bag colors. They both look great with other neutrals, but also “play nice” with many other colors.
