I love a slouchy hobo on a lazy Sunday, but there’s something so chic and put-together about toting a tophandle satchel on your elbow. I’m a practical girl so an additional longer strap is essential for the days when I’m walking all over town. Structured, ladylike bags are all the rage right now, but they are also classic staples that will never go out of style. Rebecca Minkoff’s Morning After bags are high quality, beautiful bags if you’re looking to make an investment. Alternatively, TopShop and Asos have tons of affordable, on-trend styles.
Another fabulous way to wear structured and ladylike is a longer style with a chain strap, ala the forever coveted, quilted Chanel 2.55. Or try a saddle bag for a more laid-back approach.
