Literally a classic with a twist, Chloé’s Elle crossbody has just enough unique detailing to take your basic needs to the next stylistic level. Giving a timeless black leather convertible bag (it can be worn as a clutch, crossbody, or lengthy shoulder bag, depending on your mood) a fresh and unexpected injection of curved gold-tone metal translates to instant excitement that works effortlessly for your daily life.
The bag itself also holds more intrigue than it initially lets on: the tear-shaped body becomes larger towards the bottom, allowing for more storage than you would expect from such a small bag. With a flap-front opening, it offers easy access, and for most days, this is really all you need. Besides, what’s more versatile than clean black leather set off with a major twist of plentiful – and beautiful – gold hardware? Chloé bag on MATCHESFASHION.com for $1,150.
Wear with: Pump up the volume with Aquazzura’s Very Eugenie suede and leather sandals, a lighter, more feminine take on the immense platform shoe. On NET-A-PORTER for $775.
