No matter what you’re buying, you tend to want everything in your closet to do more than one thing. That’s especially true when it comes to bags. After all, who has time to run home from work and change before a night out? More often than not, it’s straight from the office to happy hour or dinner, and you need a bag that can keep up with your schedule—and look good any time day or night.
These are the best day-to-night bags for fall.

Thanks to its clever square shape, this Metier Perriand bag holds a lot more than you'd expect. The suede is as soft as a cloud, while the hand-braided handles add a luxe touch—and make it easy to carry. Just remove the detachable shoulder strap and it’s ready for an evening out.
