A lot of people, myself included, love a Stella McCartney crossbody bag just because it is guaranteed to be so easy. You don’t have to worry about messing it up, since it’s not genuine skin, and the Falabella’s trademark chain detail dresses things up, even when you’re not. Stella’s chain strap has an extra serving-up sparkle; apparently, they use some diamond-dust process. I don’t really understand what that means, but whatever. It makes the hardware look super-shiny and nice!
Topping it off, this heart shape is simply too sweet to pass up, even at the end of August. In bright blue, you won’t be walking around like it’s Valentine’s Day all the time. With the plethora of kitschy novelty bags around, this mild and measured one is a breath of fresh air. It toes the line between too cutesy and just right. Which is just right for me. Stella McCartney Heart on MATCHESFASHION.com for $960.
Wear with: A stripy, sailor-inspired sweater never goes out of style, and Isabel Marant’s merino-blend pullover will receive plenty of love. On NET-A-PORTER for $905.
