I want to get my hands on a new bag, without fail, every season. It’s as if the weather changes even just slightly, and I think to myself: “It’s time for some change — even if it’s just a little. Maybe a tote-size amount. Or clutch-size? OK, let’s look for a new bag. That’s doable.”
I’m not the only one…am I? They’re just so dang pretty, and if you look in the right places (aka J.Crew), it won’t cost an arm and a leg — although I’d bet you that it’d look like it did.
Just… You guys. Prepare to be completely wowed. J.Crew’s current bag situation is totally designer-evoking and nothing short of genius. You’re gonna be stunned.
From Bucket To Crossbody, These Are The 8 Cutest Bags At J.Crew
The top notes (as if that’s a thing) for this mini collection of faves are: suede, texture, leather weave, and pot, bucket and basket shapes. All fall-style-heavy and mostly in succulent neutral tones (we adore that versatility).
Uh, BONUS: J.Crew’s Labor Day sale includes more than half of our picks below (either already marked down or discounted with code: LONGWKND). I’m serious!!! They know exaaactly what they’re doing. I think you’ll love.
This J.Crew bucket bag evokes some type of collegiate, classic, New England vibe for me, and I love that type of inspo for fall dressing. The deep-navy suede is delicious, and the back leather half adds a little bit of edge. This bag is timeless, simple and large enough to fit a laptop. Gushing over this one. Now I want to plan a trip to Boston.
This basket bag has got major Clare V. feels, right?? And you know we love that. The luxe Port Wine burgundy color makes the leather basket-style look much more expensive than it is — as does the interior drawstring closure. Under $65 on sale and SO dang pretty.
Um, how freaking cool is this box-style bag?? The ’70s geometric weave is LEATHER. Ugh. It’s so unique and playful without being too busy. It would totally match any outfit and serve a ton of dimension. Comes with a removable crossbody strap for ultimate dexterity.
This little number would add a lovely laid-back, boho feel to any outfit. I love it in this Dark Tan color too because it’s one of those brown tones that even matches…other browns. You know what I mean? And, obviously, fall = allll the browns. Bring ’em on.
AAKS X J.Crew is the collaboration we never knew we needed. Statement bag, anyone? This striped crossbody would definitely turn heads. The raffia doesn’t strike as overly summery because of the dark strap and accent weave colors, so it can definitely transition into fall with ease.
If you’re looking for something a tad bit simpler, look no further. This sweet little leather-and-suede woven bucket bag is really understated and — truly — the perfect “everyday bag” size. Comes in three neutral colors and is just adorable.
Yup, this tote is an outfit-maker. There’s just something about a brown woven-leather bag that allows it to be worn with even the most casual of outfits. (Why can I see this paired with a cream sweatsuit so clearly? Someone should try….)
I saved the best (and arguably coolest) for last. How amazing is this baw-pot bag? I swear it’d be like wearing a little work of art over your shoulder. Same deal with the other AAKS X J.Crew raffia bag above — it’s summery, but the dark leather details ground it just enough for pairing with fall outfits. Such a beautiful bag.
Get your hands on one of these beauties ASAP. They are not to miss!
Oh, hey, Pinners….
