Bags for Your Body Type

Bags for Your Body Type: The Art of the Complement

Contrary to what we might hope, bags are not always “one size fits all.” Skinny, young things may be able to get away carrying just about anything, but my well-endowed girlfriends have trouble finding even a simple crossbody.

Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Printed Tote and Crystal-Embellished Shoulder Bag

Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Printed Tote and Crystal-Embellished Shoulder Bag: Che Figata!

One of two things has happened here: either my eye has changed or Dolce is growing on me. While their bags once (and not a time too long ago) looked blatantly kitsch, two of their latest designs, released today, are charmingly kitsch – and trust me, there is a big difference between the two.

Prada City Calf Medium Bucket Bag

Prada City Calf Medium Bucket Bag: City Slicker

When it comes to bucket bags, the pendulum swings back and forth on the age-old shape, from petite and sweet to bigger and boxier to as streamlined possible.
