Best Bet: Edie Purse

As evidenced by our latest video of splurgy satchels, clutches, and cross-body styles from the tents, boxy bags are in. J.Crew’s fall Edie bag has a squared-off shape similar to the Cambridge Satchel Company’s popular Fluro, but with a slightly dressier feel. The flame color can punch up black and camel ensembles (and winter coats, in a few months), while the minimal brass hardware gives it a clean, classic look. Sling it over your shoulder on your way to work or detach the strap to carry it briefcase-style.

Edie Purse, $238 at J.Crew or online.
