Having already briefed you on our autumn boot fixations, we felt it equally necessary to indulge all you bag fetishists with the same kind of affection. The truth is, nothing kicks off a new season of dressing quite like a new fall bag. From slouchy, weathered, oversized totes to more diminutive shoulder styles, this season's crop offers lots of solid, classic designs (save for a few inevitable flashes of zippers and studs). Whether you're downsizing to ladylike dimensions or trading in last season's Rocco for this season's PS 11, we've got 20 styles you'll want to get your hands on stat.
