The new fall Studio Thirty-One build-your-own bags, flaps and straps are here! I couldn’t wait to add the new Lovely Leopard Pebble flap to my Caramel Charm Classic body from spring – it’s one of my favorite patterns to spice up a neutral outfit. I’ll even keep the Black Stripe Web Crossbody Strap as part of the set for some fun pattern mixing. This combination quickly takes my “momiform” of a black t-shirt and boyfriend jeans to the next level!
Because it’s so easy to switch out flaps, straps and bodies to fit your outfit (or your mood), I asked some of my friends at Home Office to share the ways they’re mixing – or remixing! – their own Studio Thirty-One purses for fall. So no matter your style, read on for some fun looks to inspire you this season.
“For weekends on the go, I like the security of a long crossbody strap and the look of a scarf tied on. Then when I’m in the car with the top down, I can scarf my hair!”
Get the look:
“Now I can get my fall going with the navy strap from my spring Studio Thirty-One purse: The crossbody keeps my hands free to hold the kids’ hockey bags!”
“I actually designed this pattern, so I really, really love it! It has both navy and black, so it goes with anything. I add denim to play up the casual, Southwestern feel.”
“I lean more toward neutrals (I wear a lot of black and white!) but I think the olive is just enough color for me. The striped strap from spring is comfortable and not too serious.”
“I’m using my body and strap from spring, so I added the Olive Twill Stripe Flap for a fall look. I like the new Swirl font – it’s just fun and I love the tone-on-tone color.”

“This is my everything bag: big enough to throw anything in, but small enough to keep me from over-filling! As for the color, I like a good neutral to go with a patterned shirt.”
“The leopard print coordinates with anything brown or black, so I can go from a day of shopping to dinner out without changing my shoes!”
“I love olive green! I was so excited to see it offered for fall. I’ll use this fun flap from summer for work, then switch to an olive flap for a wedding or special occasion.”
“I like to call my style Simply Southern. I’m classic, so I love neutrals – but I also love patterns. This is perfect for shopping on the weekends with an easy-to-wear dress: Just throw it on!”
“I’m a neutral queen but like a pop of color. The crossbody is great for running all over the office – and you never know when you’ll see an action figure or pair of toddler shoes in there!”
“I love the roomy Modern body, and I think the striped flap gives it a more casual look with a rustic or boho feel. For a more polished look, I can switch out my navy flap from spring.”
“I like that the Classic body is structured and not too deep. This black flap is good for work, but the matching leopard print flap is fun for the weekend!”
