Stop the presses! There’s a handbag trend that’s been sweeping the style scene, and you need to get on board, stat!
Multi-tone handbags have been popping up on the arms of everyone, from the models on the runway to the editrixes sitting front-row. These color-block sensations are the perfect way to add an extra splash of color to your look. They are also a major upgrade from your mundane, single-colored everyday tote. Grab a pen and get ready to take some notes, because we’re got 5 multi-tone handbags you really need to add to your wardrobe, and we’re about to break down the reasons why.
Nothing updates a classic structured tote like a coloring remix. The combination of camel and black also guarantees that you’ll get more wear out of this bag than its one-color counterpart.
Leave it to Marc Jacobs to color block some of this season’s hottest colors into one accessory! With so many different hues combined in one, you’ll never have to worry about your bag not matching your outfit.
3. Fendi ‘2Jours – Large’ Calf Hair Shopper, $4190
Gasp! Here is a clear example of how black and blue together should look like.
Still looking for that perfect bag to take to the office? This large tote conveniently carries everything from your marketing portfolio to your tablet. Best of all, it conveniently hides inside a camouflage of fur, black, and gold. An office accessory has never looked so chic.
5. Loeffler Randall ‘Lock’ Clutch, $395
There’s no worse feeling than realizing your nightlife bag only works with a few outfits. Well, those days can officially be behind you! Opt for a multi-tone clutch, and you’ve got an accessory that you can use over and over again. And before you dismiss the idea, remember that Kate Middleton — you know, a duchess — isn’t above reusing a few clutches… so you should be either!
