The catwalks for autumn 2012 seem to have lent a moody elegance to accessories. In terms of bags for the season, this has meant over-sized totes, and work-ready portfolio numbers, with silver being the season’s metal of choice.

In fact, size matters, whatever sort of bag you are going for. Expect to see people using the sort of bag you’d take away on a weekend carried around for an office weekday. Many leading designers have gone super-sized this season. That’s good news if you’re one of those people that tends to carry their lives around with them all day and evening.

Don’t worry, though. You’ll still have plenty of choice if you just want something to fit your lippy, purse and phone as you head out for the evening. In fact, some this season are unbelievably tiny.

And they’re not only getting bigger, but handbags are getting a little wilder, too. We’ve seen more than a little faux fur on the catwalk for this autumn, and even some perspex! These bags may not always be then most practical items, but they look magnificent.

The clutch also continues to be big news for autumn and winter going into 2013, just as they were all summer, with an increasing number of styles and designs to choose from. Another trend you can expect to see is for bright, monotone colors  Just because the weather is cooler you’re not obliged to stick to grey, brown or black! Whether you’re after totes, cross-bodies, hobo bags or anything else, go online and check out the gorgeous offerings that are around this season.
