Last year we had the black and white trend, and this year, things are taking a darker turn – in a good way! I’m obsessing over pastels right now just as much as the next girl, but there’s nothing like a bag you can carry year-round.

Marni Haircalf Top-Handle Shopper: Buck the Buckethttp://www.snobessentials.com/2014/04/marni-bag-buck-the-bucket.html http://www.snobessentials.com/2014/04/marni-bag-buck-the-bucket.html#comments Thu, 17 Apr 2014 14:00:44 +0000 http://www.snobessentials.com/?p=56095

Just another bucket bag? Not so fast. A basic black tote? It’s not that simple! Marni presents a wise variation on the bucket style that we’ve been seeing so much of lately, yet again. But unlike the typical hard-to-access, hand-biting bucket (I’m not big on drawstrings), this one opens up like a friendly tote.

Tom Ford Small Lock-Front Crossbody Bag: Undressed to Impresshttp://www.snobessentials.com/2014/04/tom-ford-small-lock-front-crossbody-bag-undressed-impress.html http://www.snobessentials.com/2014/04/tom-ford-small-lock-front-crossbody-bag-undressed-impress.html#comments Thu, 17 Apr 2014 10:00:54 +0000 http://www.snobessentials.com/?p=56084

Sometimes a man with the right touch can change everything (and I’m not talking about taking your night in a seductive direction). It takes the one and only Tom Ford to pack the ultimate unsexy, utilitarian crossbody bag full of sex appeal. Not only does he know what women want, he knows how they function.

When it comes to certain snakes, the saying is, “red on black, venom lack; Red on yellow, killer fellow.” Looking at this mini McQueen, though, I have to disagree. It's poisonous.

Here is a perfect example of a bag that illustrates the pillars of Bottega Veneta: impeccable craftsmanship, contemporary functionality, and timeless design topped with quality materials. And like every Bottega piece, it effectively grabs attention without resorting to the vulgarity of in-your-face logos or cheap tricks like tacky dangling fur balls.

Sometimes the perfect handle is all it takes to make a simple tote feel special. It’s the power of a detail, the potency of one great touch. And speaking of touches, it’s looking like Alexander Wang still has one with some magic to it.

You won’t find me sporting ostentatious, logo-laden pieces. My taste is quieter. I opt for bags of the subtle breed à la Valextra and Hermès because with luxury, no gimmicks are required. For an evening out, all you would need to pair this beautifully structured Marni bag with would be an equally muted and neutral dress.

You know I love a good pouch. That slim silhouette and slender profile are all I need for my absolute essentials some days, but sometimes you crave a pouch with a little more staying power, so to speak. One that you could technically squeeze a little more into if you needed to, one with a strap. Like Tamara Mellon’s Attraction bag.

Neon is back and bolder than ever! I remember it first started trending around the time Wham glowed in the dark for their “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go” video, but my son believes the fluorescent hue belongs to his generation.

My first subject was spring cleaning, or rather, spring organizing (it’s a lot easier to organize than to give away beloved bags!). At the start of a new season, I store the pieces I won’t be wearing in boxes, and bring out all the others I’ve been waiting to carry.

There’s nothing like a good peek-a-boo bag for summer. Suddenly, you’re showing a bit more skin, and it feels right that your bag gets in on the airy, revealing action, too. But like with your sundress and shorts, you don’t want to show too much. The best bags merely hint at being bare, without giving it all away.
