Top 5 Blindingly White Bags: Come Clean

Top 5 Blindingly White Bags

There is something about a pristine white bag that makes the heart race. By definition, white is not a contrasting color, but what better to pair with a brightly colored outfit than a starkly different bag that will stand out? Yes, these are preciously pallid, but don’t fear – they’re not as fragile as you might think. I’ve had a white Valentino Rockstud tote for a while now, and it still looks completely immaculate with only moderate care (as long as you don’t drink a berry smoothie on top of it, all should be fine!). And if you do have an accident, a baby wipe can usually take care of the problem.

Loeffler Randall Rider Bag: The winter snow may be melting away, but the time to break out bright whites is just beginning. The super structured Rider is a bag Tina and I both love! On Shopbop for $495.

Maison Martin Margiela Medium Shoulder Bag: Odds are you’ll get invited to a white party or two this summer, so you’ll need a small shoulder bag to be your colorlessly-coordinated date! On Shopbop for $1,295.

Bottega Veneta Cervo Double-Handle Medium Tote Bag: Bottega is always an investment, but it’s a good one. This tote offers an elegant contrast between white intrecciato detailing and gunmetal hardware. At Neiman Marcus for $3,650.

Saint Laurent White Classic Leather Borsa Tote: Graphic black and white is the trend of the moment, but try scaling it back to just white for back to the basics style. On Ssense for $2,350.

Zagliani Python Alma Clutch: A clean white canvas allows for a little more experimentation in bags – in this case, the wild wristlet gets stitched into python-skinned shape. Exclusively at Barneys New York for $3,500.
