Top Handle is Tops for Spring
Grace Kelly was beautifully elegant with a ladylike style befitting a princess. It is no wonder they named the eponymous Hermes Kelly bag in her honor.
This Spring, ladylike bags are back in style. Everything old is new again, and we need go no further than shows like Mad Men to see our latest pop culture obsession revisited.
We are seeing many in pastel colors like baby blues, peaches, pinks and greens. Popping up popular are many textures such as real and more common faux Croc and Ostrich embossed. We are even seeing edgy takes on the classic look with studs and nailhead detailing.
For bags close to and under $500, the Leather and Croc Print Satchel or the 797 Satchel by Tory Burch will class up any outfit. The Lyric Ostrich-Embossed Leather Top Handle Bag by Rebecca Minkoff or the Jane Top Handle Flap Bag by our very favorite stylist to the stars Rachel Zoe, have us begging for the April showers and May flowers.
For inspiration, or if you have MAJOR bucks to spend (we’ll let you know our birthdays) doB is worshiping the Accordion Frame Bag by Prada or the Large Rosalie Croc-Stamped Leather Satchel by Jimmy Choo. PS1 by Proenza Schouler in a deep mint green suede makes a blooming statement, but if green is not your thing, it comes in many other color options.
While the prices vary and many we lust after cost a pretty penny, the good news is that these sophisticated classic bags will never go out of style. Invest in a brand name and later sell it on Ebay, or pass it to a daughter or beloved niece one day.
So grab a hold of your bag and get a handle on life.
