In a season where bags were sent down the runways in a myriad of shapes, colors and styles, there have never been more options available to the consumer. The beauty of a great bag is that you don't have to think twice about it; just grab it and go—all while remaining stylish and put-together. Whatever your daily routine, there's a bag that will fit the bill and elevate your look in a pinch. For Fall 2020, we saw the return of hobo bags, a doubling-down on the heavy chain trend, and the advent of the circular silhouette bag—and we were both shocked and delighted to see that small "knick-knacks" ruled another season of runway shows. These are our picks for the best bags of the season, ranging from the luxury to the affordable.
