Best Grays: The New Neutral

While black and white may be on trend, it’s their middle ground that I’m finding even more versatile. Just look to Saint Laurent’s suede Lulu bag (on Farfetch for $2,141.48) for proof. You could wear this to work with fall burgundies and cobalts, then break it out come springtime with a green party dress.

Top 5 Day Bags for Fall: Carry On…and On…and On

There are days when it’s all about the bag. You take out your wardrobe’s best and enjoy putting forth the energy to baby it with precious treatment. And then there are those days when life gets in the way and you’re too busy to worry about taking care of an investment piece while you go about your business.

Carven Colorblock Small Tote: Live and Let Live

Carven has really stepped their game up from their trademark cute, little canteen bags. While they’re still adorable, the Parisian brand is now giving us something we can sink our snobby teeth into: a “real” bag that works around the clock.

Sergio Rossi Viva Suede Fold-Over Clutch: Fall Into Simplicity

When the season changes, powerful statement pieces are a blast to buy, but you’ve got to have elements to balance them out. That’s why it’s so nice to have something new and pared-down for fall, so you’re free to go to town on the rest of your outfit. Sergio Rossi’s Viva clutch is the answer to your punch-packing graphic prints, tricked-out bomber jackets and textural exotics.

Victoria Beckham Medium Leather Bag: Beckham’s Got the Blues

If you ask me, sometimes the most sumptuous bags are the simplest. After all, why reinvent the wheel when you can just showcase great quality and true luxury?

Narciso Rodriguez Suede Tote

Narciso Rodriguez Suede Tote: Color Block, Open Mind

A bag like this proves that nobody, even after all these years (18 since he presented his first ready-to-wear collection), does color-blocking like Narciso Rodriguez. Tri-toned slip-dresses and easy-equation geometry abounds in his Fall 2013 collection, but I prefer to take this matter into my hands, via a roomy tote.

Marc Jacobs The Grand Metropolitan Small Leather Tote

Marc Jacobs The Grand Metropolitan Small Leather Tote: The Grand Scheme of Things

Fall welcomes a great new bag from Marc Jacobs. With fur stoles, oversized Peter Pan collars, elements of lingerie (hot pants, anyone?), and lush overcoats, his ready-to-wear collection is all about the vintage vixen gone modern. Which is actually a good way to describe this bag.
