Syncing Your Style: Structured Bags

Crisp Autumn air is starting to flutter the curtains and I am READY to transition my wardrobe along with it. The easiest way to update your look, try a trend or jazz up the every day "uniform" is with a great handbag. Structured Bags are all the rage right now.

For now, I am tucking away my large totes and loving the roomy yet ladylike vibe of a structured bag. (I will note that I feel so much more organized because I can see and touch all of my things!) Whether you're looking for a bit of polish, love a lot of hardware and detail, or you love the style of large handles like I do, a structured bag is the trend for you to try right now.

Hobo has always been a trusted name for me when it comes to handbags. The leather is supple, the styles always in fashion and the bags are just well made. I love the richness of this dark green bag. It has all the distressed charm of a bag you have loved for years while being totally on trend. Not only is the Monika Sachel sleek and sophisticated, the "dufflesque" shape makes it fun, very current and enables me to carry it three different ways. Bonus? I love the magnetic close front pocket, perfect for grabbing incoming calls.

This bright cherry structured bag from Vera Bradley ticks all of my must haves. Not only is this bag a class act (we are talking serious quality here ladies), the structured shape is a modern take on the classic, quintessential purse.

I love how the inside keeps my goods nice and organized. The Quilted Natalie bag is spacious without being overwhelming, it has the quilted detail for added interest and the shape just screams "I am a lady" and that color...BOOM! adds a smile to no matter what you throw on.

I always shop Boden when I am searching for a new accessory to jumpstart my wardrobe. If you're looking for a pop of color, this sunny number from Boden packs a punch.

A fun addition to jeans and a tee, the shape of this structured bag holds the essentials without becoming overcrowded or too heavy.

And for unique detailing, I can't get over the dual texture of this peach colored bag. The Bloomsbury bag is surprisingly neutral and has a fun flap closure that is hip enough to take out for a night on the town or lunch with friends.

Metallics are always in and this versatile structured bag from the Kohl's Simply Vera Vera Wang collection is big on style, but easy on the budget. I love the metal detailing and the flat bottom domed shape.

Nothing says classic like a black structured bag with striking hardware. The Regatta Leather Satchel from Lands End speaks volumes all on its own. I simply love the pebbled leather. It is roomy yet holds it shape, has inner pockets for organization and even zips to expand if you need more room~ideal for a work to weekend bag.
