Of all the trends I saw on the Spring 2014 runways, tassled handbags are one of the most welcoming. The style doesn't require the same punishing discipline that crop tops do, or try to convince me that a BeDazzled version of my mother's gardening shoes are cool; even better, it's something I won't have to wait until next season to buy. Many of this autumn's coolest carryalls have some sort of fringe action happening, whether it's a small embellished or a full-on tufted trim. To see and shop the 13 options I'm most excited about now—including everything from backpacks to bucket shapes to crossbodies—click through the slideshow above.
