From magazines to stores to websites to blogs to runways, the new "it" bag of the season - the structured bag - has been everywhere. Inspired by the UK-based Cambridge Satchel Company's signature neon satchel, the stand-alone bag has been reinvented in a range of colors, patterns and fabrics. What's so great about these rigid bags is they add a touch of sophistication to any ensemble, but they don't get too carried due to their usually bright color palettes. And, not to mention, these bags are a far cry from the bottomless-pit, unstructured, slouchy bags that make it a task in itself to find that lipgloss you knew you threw in there...
Here are some of my favorites I've seen so far. They really do make a structured bag for everyone, from the classic to the eclectic dresser.
Love always, Em.
