Suede Bags

There's a chill in the air. European vacation selfies have given way to apple orchard selfies. It's time to break out the plaids, the knee-high boots, the camel coats. It's time to change up your arm candy.

A great suede bag is to fall what a woven basket bag is to summer — basically a requirement. It embodies the season's aesthetic. While, yes, a kind of leather, suede is a material unto itself. It's timeless, polished, weighty, versatile, richly toned, easy to style. It's ideal for layering. It complements any other fall fabric especially well, be it a chunky cashmere knit or a cinched wool blazer. It makes any oversized bag look less "morning commute" and more "model off duty." It's luxurious, quiet or not. And it's trending.

Bottega Veneta, Khaite, The Row, Jacquemus, Celine — all the accessory heavy hitters, plus dozens more labels, are doubling down on their suede bag offerings for fall. Whether you're into neutral chocolatey browns or eye-catching acid greens, slouchy boho shoulder bags or neat hardware-trimmed purses, there's a range of colors and silhouettes to suit every taste.

Unfortunately, suede can pose a bit of a care problem, which is why we enthusiastically suggest you purchase a preventative waterproofing spray to go with your new bag. This one by French brand Saphir comes expert-recommended and, as an added bonus, works just as well on other seasonal suede favorites, such as UGG booties or Boston Suede Birkenstocks.

Scroll down for the best suede bags to buy this fall and keep forever.
