Proenza Schouler Striped Medium Shoulder Bag: The High Line

Say hello to stripes done right. Proenza Schouler is a label that’s never shy about experimenting with unapologetic and unexpected mélanges of textures, elements, and references. That bold mentality even translates to their bucket bags, like this heady little statement-maker. The only thing neutral about it is the clean black and white color palette – and I mean that in the most positive way possible.

Top 5 Felt Bags: Heart Felt

Now is the time to embrace some major texture changes! If fur is too extreme for you as a winter bag, then felt is definitely right. Think of it as the perfect frigid-weather compromise. Soft and not too-in-your face, it’s the more practical choice.

Top 10 Black Tie Shoes: Bow Down to the Bow

I’ve always said that ankle straps are like seat belts for your feet (and we could certainly use those – safety first!), but with these shoes, designers are taking that functional feature and tying it up in a pretty bow.

Top 5 Plaid Bags: A Checkered Future

Forget beat-up flannels. This isn’t the grunge plaid of the ’90s we’ve become so re-familiarized with in recent seasons. Checkered lines have taken a polished turn, so think only chic and elevated for the new season.

Top Fanciful Wallets-on-Chains: Chains of Lust

Lately, I’ve been carrying around my wallets-on-chains more than any other bags, especially while traveling. It’s so liberating to know you require nothing more on your shoulder than your cell, ID, a bit of cash, and a credit card or two.
