Fall bags are right there at the top of my list when it comes to the seasonal accessories I get the most excited about. There are so many colors, patterns, and textures to play with, whether you want to add a pop or keep it dialed back with neutrals. After my post last week about what’s on my fall wish list, I had a few questions about where my bag was from and how I find stylish bags at a reasonable price point.
Truth is, I search. Like, a lot. I have a Pinterest board where I keep a visual list of sorts for seasonal outfits I’m inspired by, and every so often I’ll find a look with a bag to die over where the source is attached. I couldn’t keep all these beauties to myself, so here are 8 amazing fall bags under $500—in action!

1. Senreve Belt Bag
I wasn’t into belt bags at all until I saw this one. Somehow Senreve gave a classic spin to this typically edgy piece. It’s vintage yet modern and—best of all—hands free. The brown is my favorite, but Senreve has every color imaginable—mint, yellow, burgundy, olive, black, white, and more!
2. Oroton Margot Bag
I mentioned in this post that I just got the beautiful Margot bag for fall! The quality is stellar for the price point, but I will say, I wish I’d gotten the ‘mini’—it has all the bells and whistles of the larger version but looks better crossbody. They also a ‘tiny’ size that’s perfect for date night!
3. A.P.C. Demi Lune Crossbody
4. Polene Numero Un Mini
It feels like Polene took the fashion world by storm a few years ago and interest has since calmed down, which is a good thing in my book because, now, not everyone out there will have your bag. It comes in over fifteen colors, including burgundy, camel, rust, black, and so many more that are great for autumn.
5. Mansur Gavriel Mini Bucket Bag
6. Cuyana Backpack
You might be surprised to see a backpack on this list, but they’re so practical for fall activities, especially if you have kids or are in school. Cuyana’s has adjustable straps, can fit a small tablet, and has a zippered inner pouch to secure your essentials.
