Toss aside your beat up mom bag, ladies, because there are some new purses in town. From the bookbag (a clutch that looks like a book) to the winter white bag, there are some fun bags you can add to your wardrobe this fall. And don’t worry, there will still be room for a diaper or sippy cup in there somewhere!

Pride and Prejudice

The bookbag

It's back to school time and there's even a bookbag out there for Mom. This fall, if you're ready to ditch your tired tote for something sophisticated, you can carry a clutch that looks like the cover of one of your favorite novels. Kate Spade has several options including a sleek Pride & Prejudice inspired purse that you can take on your next girls' night out. It has a hefty price tag, but hey, at least you'll be carrying a classic!, $325.

Michael Kors bag

The winter white bag

It's all about winter white this fall -- not exactly the easiest color for a mom. But if you're willing to risk a run-in with your toddler's chocolate pudding-stained fingers (all in the name of fashion, of course), you can snap up one of Michael Kors' fabulous travel totes in one of this season's trendiest colors. Roomy enough to hold sippy cups, Cheerios, diapers (or, all of the above), it's perfect for any mom who wants to put fashion first., $228.


Or... the burgundy bag

Burgundy is another hot color for fall. And if you're not brave enough to buy a bag in winter white, you can feel very secure with a tote in a wine-colored hue. (Remember those pudding-stained fingers?) The Catalyst tote is roomy, has a lot of pockets and comes with a strap, if you want to transform it into a shoulder bag., $65.

Sienna tote bag

The faux python bag

For the mom whose bag suffers a lot of wear and tear, a sturdy tote with faux python detail is the way to go. The Sienna Tote by Danielle Nicole is not only hot for fall, but it's waterproof and has a roomy interior back pouch pocket -- plenty of room for all of Mom's stuff. Plus, it's affordable!, $88.
