Polka dot or animal spot? Painterly circles or graffiti-inspired triangles? Or something else entirely? Honestly, when something looks this good, it doesn’t really need to be defined with a precision-perfect touch.

I absolutely love this! Never one to complacently go with the ordinary designer grain, mix-master designer (and husband to Isabel Marant) Jérôme Dreyfuss always has a distinct, unmistakable way of shaking up textures and colors. But this three-way combo of denim, suede, and snake is flat-out genius.

Sprinkled with a little Marc by Marc Jacobs’ pixie dust, and the most basic of shapes goes from boring to incredibly cute. Narciso may be the king of colorblocking, but you can always look to Marc by Marc for a tasteful (and well-priced) interpretation of the trend – with added texture-blocking to boot!

Sleek, clean, and created for instant organization: Consider Maiyet’s Amonet bag your new little helper. We're seeing a lot of these über-compartmentalized bags lately, as if it’s almost a new trend, and I'm loving it. It’s like designers are finally getting the fact that function is just as important as the way things look.

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. While you can certainly buy any bag out there, the truth is that different bags flatter different body types. See which will work best for you!
