This season, it's all about the top-handle satchel. Adorned with pockets, buckles and sometimes a cross-body strap in addition to the top-handle, the satchel can go from day to night and can hold just about everything you want to carry in it. For fall try it in a neutral color like black, navy, gray or brown, or if you're really daring, try a bright like salmon or oxblood. Truly, the satchel is the perfect handbag to tote around town with or without the kids.
