How cute is this handbag! One of the big trends for the fall 2022 season is the moon shaped handbag. The new Coach Luna bag is the perfect moon shaped bag for rocking this trend while looking chic. Love it!

The moon shaped handbag trend arose from the hobo handbag trend. It is a slightly more structured version of a hobo without being a larger handbag. Moon shaped bags offer the hobo look without the bulk that comes with a hobo bag. This is a great handbag style for minimalism while being on the cutting edge of current handbag trends. You know I love that!

As soon as the Coach Luna bag popped up on the Coach website and in stores, I fell in love. This handbag is the right size for all of my daily essentials which include a wallet, lipstick, keys, and phone.

In addition to holding my daily essentials, there is still room for sunglasses or other things I need to pop inside my handbag. The Coach Luna is a great size for everyday wear.

One of the things I love about my Coach Luna bag is that the leather is amazing! Coach is known for having high quality leather and craftsmanship at affordable prices. With the Luna bag, Coach does not disappoint. This handbag is made from strong, pebbled leather and offers superior craftsmanship. I am really impressed with this bag, especially for the price! Who doesn’t love a fabulous IT bag under $500! I know I do!

Inside the Coach Luna bag you will find one open pocket. This pocket does not fit a phone, but it does fit folded bills and credit cards. If you don’t want to carry a wallet, this is an optional place for those items. I am just using it to fold and store receipts to keep my interior organized.

Shoulder Bags for fall 2022

shoulder bags fall 2022

Shoulder bags fall 2022 from top left: classic black bag (see my review here) (under $500) / caramel and chain strap bag (under $1000) / black square bag / dark brown and gold shoulder bag (under $1000) / floral clasp handbag (under $500) / ivory stamped croc handbag /

The pendulum is swinging back to classic and quiet handbags, and I am here for it! Logomania is tired. This fall is all about timeless quality; a move back towards investment dressing and understated luxury. No matter the price range, a chic box bag is the ultimate shoulder bag to carry this fall season. Love!

Shoulder bags for fall 2022 are structured, not soft. They also tend to be square, or close to being a square. If you see a shoulder bag which is an obvious rectangle, it belongs in the east/west category; which is also a chic silhouette for the fall season.

If you have been following along, you may have seen my review for the DeMellier Vancouver bag. This is my new shoulder bag for fall and I am in love with it! The pebbled leather is soft, yet the bag offers that classic and on trend structure we all crave this fall season. Since I purchased a black bag, I may add another structured shoulder bag from the above collage in another color. I love the ivory bag and maybe something in caramel or light beige.

You might be asking yourself if your Chanel flap or 2.55 will work for the fall season, and if you have one, you the answer is yes! Although the classic Chanel shoulder bags tend to be rectangles, they are structured and classic. You can rock them during the day as well as into the evening. So, stop letting them accumulate dust in your closet and wear them! I have a chocolate brown classic flap I plan to pull out for fall. Maybe my ivory 2.55 too.

Another thing this fall, we are going back to wearing our handbags on our shoulders, not cross body. Of course, if you are running errands or chasing a small child, by all means, wear your bag cross body and free up those hands! If not, it’s time to go back to wearing your bag on your shoulder. That’s what’s hot!

Are you in a classic mood? I am in a classic mood. I love everything timeless and chic right now. Styles which are simple, no-fuss, and transcend trends are calling my name. Despite all that, while this bag by DeMellier is a classic, it is also on trend. Imagine that!

Box bags are huge right now. In addition, logo-mania is over, which means, the pendulum has swung back to the anonymous handbag and clean lines. While bright colors, pastel hues, and metallic fabrications are on trend, flashing logos is not. This means you can reach for a classic shoulder bag in any color as long as the logo isn’t screaming at people. Love that!

The classic box bag is a must for any wardrobe. This style of handbag will transcend time and you will be able to wear it for years to come. While there are hundreds, if not thousands, of box bags to choose from, very few will catch my eye and give me the urge to purchase it. The Vancouver Bag from DeMellier did just that. The classic box bag shape combined with the sturdy pebbled leather and chic clasp, called my name. I had to have one!

The DeMellier Vancouver bag comes in several neutral hues as well as understated seasonal colors. I decided to go with classic black, because as you know, I love black handbags! You can never own enough black handbags!

There are three different types of leather on the DeMellier Vancouver bag to choose from. There is a smooth leather, a pebbled leather, and a stamped exotic leather. I decided to go with pebbled leather because I always find it is soft yet sturdy. Pebbled leather is also easy to clean and less prone to scratching than smooth leathers. As a mother of three, this is an important leather feature!

The DeMellier Vancouver bag comes in one size. I would call this a small/medium. It is roomier than a small bag, but not quite as large as your typical medium handbag. I can easily fit my wallet, sunglasses case, lipstick, keys, and phone inside with some room to spare. The main compartment is just the right size, and the slim, front compartment is perfect for a phone. There is also a small zipper pocket inside, I have not used this pocket yet.

There are some luxurious features on the DeMellier Vancouver bag I also love. The clasp is very secure as it has a small push button on the bottom which unlocks the clasp. You can see it popped in the two photos below. This makes the bag secure and less likely to get pick-pocketed while on public transportation or in a large crowd. I am very happy with this security feature.

In addition to the secure clasp, the strap is adjustable! This is important because handbag strap trends are shifting. We are moving away from the cross-body bag and going back to the classic shoulder bag. The strap on the DeMellier Vancouver bag can be worn long or pulled up from the center of the top of the bag and worn short. This gives the bag flexibility so you can wear it cross body, 1970s style as a long shoulder bag, or 1990s style as a short shoulder bag. Love that!

So far, I love wearing my DeMellier Vancouver bag on a daily basis. It is a fabulous everyday bag. This shoulder bag can also be worn during the day with shorts or jeans, as well as dressed up at night. It is very versatile. I love a day-into-evening bag!

The DeMellier Vancouver bag is a great handbag to not only rock the box bag trend, but also as a classic wardrobe staple. Love! Which color do you plan to get?
