Rings and Things: Sunshine State(ment)
All sorts of handbag silhouettes made their way onto the high fashion runways this spring season with many editors saying the era of the “It Bag” has returned. From reinvented classics at Gucci and Louis Vuitton to new interpretations in the Lanvin and Chloe camps, the bucket, cross-bodies, totes and envelopes are back – and they are beautiful. We love them all (and covet them equally) but despite what’s #trending now, the one that remains our constant through our cold winters and steamy summers is the clutch. It always comes back to the clutch. Simple, sure. But sexy? Damn straight. And like many items in our closet – skinny jeans, boyfriend blazers and LBDs – one is simply never enough. March is the onset of the sunny season (here’s hoping, Canada!) so we’re celebrating in a way we know every reader will appreciate: with a lovely, lemon pocketbook that fits our essentials (it has a built-in wallet) while still satisfying our need for style. And because we’re suckers for harmony we think pairing this accessory with an armful of similarly hued beaded bracelets in citrine and canary works, as does including pops of turquoise and lavender just to keep things interesting. You may not have the time or T-4 to reinvent your entire wardrobe, so just take it one clutch at a time.
