All I carry anymore are crossbody bags—they’re practical and hands-free, and therefore good for walking the dogs, but I find myself even wearing them on dates, too, because I just like the way they look. This APC bag appeals because the shape is kind of unexpected, and it has canvas straps, which is always a cool touch.
I am mad for this bag, and I don’t usually like structured top handles like this.
Such a rich, chocolatey brown, and the price is great.
Just a magnificent blue.
Why not something in a bright, poppy yellow?
The geometric woven business here is cool, and blue suede is just the best.
This is all about those canvas straps—such a chic contrast with the leather.
Baggu’s bucket bag is another that fits more than it might appear to, and it’s a shape that never goes out of style.
The stud detail here keeps things interesting.
A nice, classic saddle bag with minimal hardware, just how I like them.
If you’re looking to make an investment purchase in this category, Mansur Gavriel’s Lady Bag can’t be beat.
And finally, I love a good duffel shape.
