Look sharp with fall 2007’s essential purses

For many, a new season translates to a new wardrobe and the “IT” bag to go with it. This fall, the “IT” bags are structured and textured, yet with a feminine feel. Big and practical totes – such as the Burberry quilted leather “Beaton” bag – are still popular, but soft clutches, like Fendi’s new “To You” bag, are also on the must-have list. Neiman Marcus also lists exotic handbags as a very important trend. And while jewel tones seem to be the color palete for this season, you can never go wrong with classic black.
