Trend Alert: Bigger Bags (still) Being Carried

October 8, 2006 by SheFindsKatherine

Handbags – they’re large and growing larger. But it makes sense. In the morning you leave for the entire day, so what’s inside is more like packed luggage. Hairbrushes, cosmetics, extra shoes, maybe gym clothes or a change for after-work cocktails. Not to mention the essentials: wallet, keys, cell phone. And one of the greatest fashion faux pas is the bag lady look. You’ve seen her: the perfectly put-together woman with a chic handbag and an overflowing horrid plastic grocery bag at her side with its contents spilling over. Even worse, carrying her calorie-counted packed lunch in a shopping bag from last week’s trip to Victoria’s Secret. Invest in a luxurious, beautiful, oversize bag you’re in love with. Don’t overdo it with the amount of metal on your bag (they’re heavy enough as is), but tassels, chrome, huge buckles, and assorted hardware make big bags a must.

This Marc Jacobs Quilted bag is a class act. Two large open compartments help on the organization front and the patent leather adds fun. The Tod’s Bensonville Piccola also has double straps. The blue is oh-so perfect with denim. This Kooba ‘Ada’ Studded Tote is relaxed and makes a standout day and weekend tote choice – it can handle quick pick-ups and errands.
