With September comes the promise of cooler winds. But keep your fashion hot as ever when you choose the right Fall accessory. You'll know you'll be looking at the season's hottest handbags when they sport one of these three must-have Fall fashion attributes. Watch for them on store shelves or in your favorite eBay store...
1. SophisticationThis Fall everything will be about wearing a very tailored look - clothes will be sleek, sophisticated and close to the body. Make sure your handbag coordinates. Look for smart looking satchels or totes that are long, lean and structured for organization. Detailing is desirable as this lends toward the tailored look which will be in fashion this Fall. For example, monograms lend strongly toward sharp tailorship.

2. MagentaThis Fall bold eighties colors are coming back, especially purple. In fact, there's so much purple on store shelves and fashion magazine covers already we're already getting tired of it! Yes, wear your purple linens, purple footwear and even purple handbags, but stand out from all the reason by saving just one handbag for magenta. Yes, magenta is your vigilante color this Fall season. Hot, sexy and loud, a pink handbag will launch you to the front of the fashion line in no time. It's so deliciously powerful in fact that you must take care in selecting the right venue to partner up with your pink handbag (Night club? Yes! Professional office? No!).

3. Exotic skinsExotic skins, especially those of the reptilian persuasion, are extremely hot this Fall season, not only on handbags, but on shoes and boots as well. You can spend upwards of $10,000 on authentic exotic skins in a purse, but save your credit card a heart attack and pick up a budget friendy faux skin instead.
