Satchels and messenger bags are best for in-betweeners — those who prefer a tote but love the spaciousness of a backpack. These bags are classic, meaning they will never go out of style and can last you for years depending on the care and material. So go ahead and invest in your stylish future!

1. Olive Coat from Troppus tra’s closet – $23 retail $0

“It’s such a great color and looks so cozy! The best thing about this coat is the classic cut, making it a definite staple to any wardrobe.”

2. Vivienne Westwood Melissa Rain Boots from S’s closet – $110 retail $0

“These are the cutest rain boots I have ever seen. The simplicity of the gold buttons and the fact that they can be worn with almost any outfit makes them a must-have!”

3. Rebecca Minkoff Cupid Studded Satchel from Zoe’s closet – $395 retail $495

“You can never go wrong with a deep blue colored bag for fall. Not to mention the fact that it’s big enough to toss in a cardigan for when it gets chilly.”

Adiel’s Picks:

1. B.R. Leather Jacket from Liz’s closet – $130 retail $350

“This brand new leather jacket can make an entire fall wardrobe. The style is edgy, but the color makes it more feminine than the typical moto jacket. Wear it with skinny jeans and a scarf or over a dress and tights. The outfit possibilities are endless!”

2. Rock & Republic knee boot from Queen B’s closet – $90 retail $300

“Let’s face it: these never-been-worn Rock & Republic boots are HOT. The height, the studs, the dagger zipper, and the pointed toe…seriously drool-worthy. A perfect way to add a bit of edge to any ensemble.”

3. Foley + Corinna Mid City Tote from L’s closet – $193 retail $395

“The color ‘Oxblood’ is having a serious moment in fashion right now and this bag really feeds that craving for a fall hot color. The fact that it’s been found in the form of a Foley + Corinna Mid City? Even better!”
