Tips & Trends | The Oversized Bag – Perfect for Fall

Satchels, totes, duffle bags, messenger bags: whatever you want to call them, these oversized bags are ideal for fall! It’s almost as if the workload increases as the kids head back to school, so everyone is searching for the perfect bag for the essentials but also something big enough to throw in that laptop, iPad, or extra notebook. Looking for the perfect oversized bag? Look no further – Designer Swap has some of the hottest pieces in stock, and I’m here to guide you with what’s on trend for large bags, as well!

Colours be POPPIN’!

The cool chill of fall, the early sunsets, and the heavy layers aren’t here just yet, so don’t hide away those bright coloured totes! Nothing makes a fall outfit “pop” like a big, bright bag for accessorizing (and carrying all your necessary items!). Check out this brilliant yellow Valentino Tote being sold by Designer Swap, which will not only carry everything you throw in there so, so comfortably, but with vegan leather, you can’t help but feel like you’re doing your part for the environment, too!

Let’s get heavy

I get it, you’re over it; you’re over summer and you just want those pumpkin spiced lattes, already! And along with those crispy leaves under your combat boots and that wool scarf wrapped around your neck, you’ve got your eye on heavy leathers. I don’t blame you! They’re totally on trend and you can be sure that all your essentials, whether you’re headed to work or to a university lecture, will be safe in bags like these giant babies featured by Tods (those gold details, though!!), Michael Kors, and Prada! Imagine strolling down campus in the perfect fall outfit with that Prada crossbody wrapped over your shoulder, packed full of everything that matters (including a Starbucks gift card for those lattes). Yes, please!

I’ve got a MESSAGE for you…

That message is plain and simple – messenger bags are perfect for fall! And men can jump on this trend too, as so many designers cater their accessory lines to include practical bags for men. Designer Swap currently has this top-of-the-trend-line Salvatore Ferragamo bag available, that’s just waiting to be picked up by the most stylish of men, who have a desperate need for convenient toting of practical items! It’s how they do it in Europe (trust me, I’m living in Paris!), and you should (and could) be rocking the look, as well.

The point of fall is comfort, and I can’t think of anything more comfortable than a great big bag that holds everything you need it to, while also looking stylish as ever. Designer Swap is stocked with some amazing tote bags perfect for the season, and the quicker you move to pick one up, the quicker you’ll be out the door with it, looking absolutely fabulous!
