Why: Patent leather is all the rage. Seen on everything from coats to shoes, this trend could work with almost any item in your closet. Though we love the look, we occasionally find ourselves craving something a bit more, well, subtle.
And that's why we're lusting after the Foley + Corinna glazed leather tote. The glaze gives this bag some shine–just enough to offset a more sedate outfit–but you're not likely to catch other subway riders using it as a makeshift mirror to fix their mascara. An added plus? Smudges won't show as easily, giving you more time to carry the bag and less time cleaning it.
