Structured handbags have been a trend that has stayed with us throughout spring and will continue to be a major player in our fall and winter wardrobes as well. Designers like Marc Jacobs showed both large and small structured bags on the fall/winter 2013 runways in lovely fall jewel tones like ruby and rich deep earth tones like tan and charcoal.  A structured handbag is the perfect way to complement any outfit this fall. Whether you are heading out to work with an oversized structured tote or going out for a girls night with a petite little structured bag, this trend is one you need to add into your wardrobe ladies.  Below we have our favorite types of structured bags that you’ll want to get your hands on ASAP!

Micro Structured Bags
If you’re the type of gal that struggles with the lifelong dilemma of inevitably losing her keys, glasses and Tic-Tac’s in a large structured bag that you adore, than you should get very excited! Because this season mini structured bags are just as trendy as the stuff-eating oversized versions are.  Pair a monochrome mini bag with your favorite LBD for a polished date night look or opt for a structured crossbody bag (à la Marc Jacobs) and pair that with pastel skinnies and a camel colored top for a bright and casual style.

Oversized Structured Bags
For you girls that have the organizational prowess to master the art of the oversized structured bags then congratulations and get ready to rock some awesome bags this fall. This season try playing around with oversized structured bags that have different textures and patterns on them, for example a leather side panel and strategically placed studs would add a few edgy punk accents into your ensemble in a polished and sophisticated way.

Bold Colored Structured Bags
Don’t be afraid to say yes to rich fall color this season, go for structured bags in brilliant jewel tones, like ruby and sapphire or classic fall colors like bold burnt orange or flowery marigold.  Pair these types of bright fall structured bags with outfits that incorporate a fall nude hue like camel, because neutral colors like this are the perfect backdrop to  showcase a bold colored eye-catching structured bag.
