One of my favorite things about each season, it’s picking up a new handbag. My “IT” bag for the season. Now I personally am a huge handbag person. Handbags are my favorite accessory, the item I get most excited about purchasing! Therefore, I typically invest in a new one each season. Sometimes it’s a small investment (like this straw tote I wore all summer) and sometimes I’m willing to splurge a bit more. Typically, that comes in the fall and winter, when bags seem to take more of a beating due to the weather and everything you’re trying to pack in them (gloves, hats, maybe a scarf). 

So with that said, I’ve complied the best fall 2018 handbags out there at the moment. All reasonable priced, all under $300 with most under $150 including several under $100 – see all of those below! Above you’ll also see a view card cases. For some reason, I’ve found myself carrying one of these far more often than a wallet recently, so thought I’d point out some fun ones out there right now. Just in case you’re feeling them like I am.

LOUELLA REESE FALL 2018 Handbags Top 5 Picks

Neely & Chloe No. 19 The Mini Lady Bag Saffiano | more affordable option 

Clare V. Pot De Miel Bag

Able Fozi Handbag | more affordable option

Anthropologie Gemma Ring Tote 

Madewell Transport Tote | more affordable option

The Neely & Chloe bag is one that I’ve had since early this year and have been obsessed with since. The quality is impeccable and it’s the perfect size for when you’re on the go or if you want to take the strap off, date night. Plus the company was created and is owned by two ladies, Neely and Chloe who are truly the sweetest, most down to earth women. Morgan and I had the opportunity to meet them in NYC this past February and they were just the coolest, spilling all the details on the best places to eat in the city. 

Okay, back to the bags! This one is at the top of my must purchase list, it is so much fun and my favorite color of the season. Plus, I feel it is a handbag you could wear again in the spring and summer. 

Also, hardcore crushing on this fabulous bag. The perfect everyday bag – you can wear it as a tote, a shoulder bag, or crossbody. Love the versatility and the fact that it would truly match with everything. I think if I were to recommend one bag for the season, this one would be it! 

Fall 2018 Handbags under $100

  11. I am also a handbag girl myself! I have a Rebecca Minkoff bag that I will forever carry during the fall. I’m also loving the python look for 2018. I feel like a patterned tote with a python print would look seriously chic!
