Step Out in Style This Fall
In the past few years, Loehnen said, we’ve seen the platform shoe rule the runway and big bags grace the arms of Hollywoods hottest stars. But this year, which trends are back and what new ones can we expect?
Loehnen said the biggest surprise this season is that you can spend far from a fortune on a really classic, elegant looking bag that features stamped leather or fancy looking hardware, among other designs.
“It used to be that the more affordable brands concentrated on trendier spins,” she said, “but these days they’re doing really classic shapes, too.”
At Lucky, Loehnen said, they see hundreds and hundreds of shoes and bags a season that they cull through and create annual fall shoe and bag guides, which highlight the biggest trends at all price points. Bags and shoes, she said, have never been easier to buy, too especially online. She said you can go to sites, such as Endless and Piperlime, and sort by every imaginable category to narrow down the perfect bag for you.

For example, if you only carry big, huge satchels, then you need something from the motorcycle y category. If you like a proper handbag that keeps everything super organized, Loehnen said, then you need a handbag.
