A trend we first saw for the Fall ’15 season is destined to continue full-steam ahead into spring. Once reserved for our grandmothers and old-fashioned types, coordinating your gutsy print with your bag or shoes (or both!) reveals the cool side of going matchy-matchy.

Top 5 On-Trend Saddle Bags: Off the Ranch and Onto the Runway

As I go through the thousands of looks from New York Fashion Week and choose my favorites, I can’t help but think how safe most of the Spring ’16 collections were revealed to be (with the exception of a few bold geniuses like Marc Jacobs, Alex Wang, and Riccardo Tisci).

Tom Ford Jennifer Medium Python Shoulder Bag

Tom Ford Jennifer Medium Python Shoulder Bag: Hip to the Zip

Love Tom Ford but hate the hefty price and weight of his bags? The Jennifer is one of his most iconic styles, but the earlier version featuring a giant zipper-trimmed flap adds so much heft, you have no choice but to wear it crossbody if you want to walk straight.
