Jason Wu Kate Snake-Embossed Leather Shoulder Bag: Everything’s Coming up Rose

Don’t have a pink bag for summer? If you’re still not yet thinking pink, put grabbing one on your list pronto, along with snagging a pair of sage shoes and picking up a beach-ready turban. But I would put a rosy satchel at the forefront; it’s an absolute must at the moment.

Even if you’re not the prissy, powder-puff type, Jason Wu used his sultry runway to reveal that pale pink makes a great contrast for dark hues (and daring hot pants!). Actually, Wu shows us just the way it should be worn: pick one soft color for emphasis; otherwise, it gets washed out. And so do you.

I’ll be taking his cue and toting his snake-embossed leather shoulder bag. The pattern is irregular for a vaguely tie-dyed effect, giving the color more texture and setting up visual cues for the snake-print. In a word: lovely. So lovely, indeed, more than just girly-girls will be coveting this girlish shade. On Net-a-Porter for $1,745.

Pair with: Bring blush into the future with Bottega Veneta’s transfixing karung wedges. With a heel of jet-set metallic silver, you’ll be leaving jolts of lightning in your wake. On Net-a-Porter for $820.
