Looks For Less: Structured Satchels for Sunny Occasions

Post-dinner walks in the park, Saturday shopping trips, brunches al-fresco, ahhh! The benefits of warmer weather and sunshine soaked days are upon us. With all the time spent strolling around, nobody wants to have a cumbersome, heavy oversized bag weighing them down. After editing your bag down to the essentials, it’s time to do a little springtime shopping and consider snapping up a new, cute carryall.

Ladylike structured bags with top handles were all over the runway for Spring ’16. Featuring unique keychain details and cool textures, they were sent down the catwalk paired with many different outfits, running the gamut from billowy sundresses and lace-up sandals to loafers and cropped trousers. Designers styled them in a way that was effortlessly cool, complementing the ensembles with accessories like oversized aviator sunglasses and colorful, silk scarves.

And the best part of all? This bag is definitely a classic that won’t go out of style. It can be dressed up with a simple sundress and pumps or taken down a notch with ripped white denim and a chambray shirt. Whether the boho inspired looks were balanced out with a dose of downtown cool, or the bags perfectly accented an already simple, streamlined-look, this is definitely a key accessory right now. If you’re anything like the chic women I know, this style is bound to seamlessly fit in with your current wardrobe because of its charming shape and well-proportioned size.
