We all know that a white Chanel bag is a must for the summer, but if you’re a snob on a budget or a young snob-in-training, here’s the perfect option: Rebecca Minkoff‘s swing bag. In white leather with a gold chain strap that can be worn three different ways (singled, doubled, or tucked away) it has a classic, sophisticated flavor. Nice and long, it begs you to just toss it on your shoulder and be on your carefree way.
Minkoff’s version of the traditional chain-strapped look takes on a rock ‘n’ roll vibe with its extra-long tassel-esque zipper-pulls – in Balenciaga’s glamorous biker sort of way. With an exclusive and fun kiss-print lining and a matching dust bag, here’s a pretty yet edgy little bag, with a pretty (not edgy!) price tag to match. So, Chanel can wait and you can still feel classy and chic! At Rebecca Minkoff for $330.
Pair with: Seventies-style flares are major for summer. Double up your trends and color-block it with a hot orange pair of mid-rise jeans by Adam. On Net-a-Porter for $225.
