Fossil is a stylish and innovative market leader when it comes to jewelry, leather goods, and accessories. Their handbag collections, in particular, are very beautiful - inspired by nature, fashion, literature and authentic vintage since 1984.
Shopping for Fossil Handbags
Fossil's women's handbags are all about the details. The brand prides its collections on the splashes of color, quirky features, and rich leathers that go the extra mile to fit your lifestyle, your look and, most importantly, your personality.
Fossil's crossbody bags are usually square or rectangular in shape with a long strap that allows you to sit the bag on your shoulder or wear it across your body. While they're incredibly versatile and free up your hands if you're running errands or on the go, they also tend to be smaller in size, which is not ideal for taking to the office or situations where you need a lot of handbag space.
The materials tend to vary, with the sole leather versions coming in at about $198 at the top end of the collection and the PVC alternatives priced around $78.
- Harper is Fossil's current best-selling crossbody bag and comes in a small (about $138) and a large size (around $198). Its saddle bag style is roomy with a smooth, polished leather exterior. The three different color ways (black, tan and steel blue) are simplistic yet eye-catching, and each hue would perfectly complement any outfit.
- At the lower end of the scale for just about $78, the Fiona EW Crossbody is beautifully constructed from PVC and polyurethane trim. It comes in four different colorful prints and color ways, which would liven up even the most basic outfit. As well as its main zipper pocket, it has a slide pocket which is ideal for keeping your keys or phone safe whilst on the move.
Satchels & Shoulder Bags
Satchel and shoulder bags are ideal for busier and longer occasions where you need a smart and roomy handbag for all your treasured possessions - and a small bag just won't work.
Ranging from about $128-$278, Fossil's satchel and shoulder bags come in medium and large sizes. While they're a bit heavier to carry, the handles on these bags offer good, sturdy support for the shoulder and look extremely professional if you're heading to the office or a business meeting.
- The Rachel Leather Satchel is one of Fossil's current bestsellers at around $178 and comes in both classic black and tan. You can also get the PVC version in a range of prints and colors for about $128. The two thick handles are perfect for situations whereby you're in a rush and you just need to grab your purse and go, but the bag also has a crossbody strap if you require hands-free use. Diverse yet chic!
- The Maya Hobo bag is another Fossil bestseller and comes in both a medium and large size. Its slouchy leather exterior is dreamy and it has plenty of compartments for the items you need to travel with. Available in both black and tan for approximately $238, this bag would make a great addition to any woman's closet.
Tote and Travel Bags
Fossil's tote bags are the perfect accessory for if you have an extremely busy lifestyle, because you never have to worry about needing extra space. They can be great for a day out, or a short car trip away; however, they're not ideal for train or plane travel as their decent size takes up a lot of room in the hold.
From about $118-$218, Fossil has a stunning array of totes which you'd struggle to fill on the average day.
- The Rachel Tote is one of Fossil's most popular leather tote bags. Available in classic tan and black for around $158, it's large in size and looks like a serious bit of arm candy when worn on the shoulder.
- At the other end of the spectrum, the Fiona Tote is about $118 and constructed from cotton and polyurethane trim. Its colorful stripes are bright and funky, come rain or shine, for casual occasions where your outfit needs a bit of a lift. Simply wear with denim and neutral colors for a cute yet powerful combo.
A backpack can be a lifesaver for your daily grind if you have a busy morning commute to work, the gym, or even to your kids' school, and you need a practical solution for your belongings. As well as supporting the back to prevent injuries and ensure it doesn't hurt later, Fossil's backpacks have a lot of different compartments and room for everything you need to take with you on your journey, whether near or far.
Ranging in price from around $98-$128, Fossil's women's backpacks are fashionable yet affordable.
- Currently about $68, the Estate Unisex Backpack is manufactured from canvas and nylon trim. Black with tan details, it'll match any outfit that you choose to throw on at the last minute on the daily.
- Also currently $68, the Summit Dome Unisex Backpack has one padded laptop pocket, two media pockets, and one zipper pocket - which means that you don't have to worry about fitting in all your everyday essentials. Not only is it large in size, but it comes in three different hues: red, black and navy.
Whether you're heading to the office or an off-site meeting, Fossil also has some stunning handbag options.
- As well as their Rachel Tote listed above which is great for work, Fossil also offers their top-selling Emma Laptop Bag (about $298). These bags are not only crafted from a high quality, polished leather, but each style has a number of different compartments to hold all your files, notebooks and technology. Available in tan, black, brown and cabernet (which is a gorgeous purple hue) this bag can be grabbed in a rush with its two short handles, or worn across the body to help you spread the weight of what's inside. Either way, it's guaranteed to fulfill all your work needs.
Fossil Handbags: Practical Yet Stylish
As well as solving a problem, each handbag in the Fossil collection is meant to have its own personality and attitude. Fossil prides themselves on proving so much more than an accessory, each piece is designed to become a necessary part of your outfit. When shopping for a Fossil handbag, make sure you take the time to fully explore their varied collections to find a style that works for you and your needs, as well as complements your personality.
