The J.Crew handbag shop has gotten a serious facelift in recent months. From structured totes to printed clutches, there’s a handbag appropriate for any fete. When investing in a bag, it’s important to ensure that the quality and shape last season after season. Along with durability, style is another important factor. You want to carry something timeless, not trendy.
Biennial Satchel: This two-handle bag is elegant and will last a lifetime. With looser leather, the structure isn’t as firm, which comes in handy when you’re stuffing your life inside. The sections are convenient and make the bag versatile. When investing in an everyday bag you expect to keep for many years, black is the way to go. Black is less likely to show cuts or stains.
Little Edie Purse: The Little Edie purse has spunk and makes sense in the flame red shade. Its smooth matte leather is unbeatable and was exclusively crafted for J.Crew. The bag can be worn cross-body or carried for a night on the town. Suitable for any personality, the miniature purse Is refreshing among the oversized, tiring bags women tend to carry.
Invitation Clutch in Ribbon Stripe: “Polished enough for black tie but cool enough to rock with jeans, the invitation clutch is your perfect plus one.” On their website, J.Crew describes the clutch better than anyone could. The envelope clutch is a classic shape that fits flawlessly underneath your arm. If you get tired of carrying the clutch, no worries, there is a tuck-away chain strap. The grosgrain ribbon is preppy and sophisticated, the best of both worlds.
Colorblock Tote: Totes are necessary for a woman on the go. This tote in particular is small enough to take out to dinner, and big enough for a day of errands. For the students, the tote is laptop friendly. The cross-body strap is detachable and the zipper closure in the middle divides the tote in two, allowing you to separate work and play. The lambskin tote is hard to beat.
Edie Purse in Italian Calf Hair: Leopard is a timeless print that deserves to be in the same category as stripes and polka dots. The regular all-leather Edie purse comes in six colors, but the calf hair is much more luxurious. The brass hardware and black leather perfectly contrast with the spotted calf hair. Another plus: the top handle. As a part of the J.Crew Collection, the purse is an investment at just under $500, but a definite fashion statement and well worth every penny.
