THE GIFT YOU’LL WANT TO BAG

The classic shoulder bag gets a fashion-forward makeover in a festive red shade that’s perfect for Christmas

There are many reasons why we’re grateful that cross-body bags are currently a style staple. Number one: practicality. While beaded evening bags and satin clutches have their place in our wardrobes and hearts, we’re fully hooked on the hands-free ease that a leather shoulder bag offers. Secondly, when the humble satchel is elevated to new style heights like this one, which boasts clean lines and elegant hardware, you won’t have to upgrade your accessories for evening. Instead, start the day with this bag on your shoulder and you’re all set to head straight out to meet friends after work. Try tucking the strap inside and carrying it by the top handle to switch up the look. We’d love to unwrap this brilliant year-round staple this Christmas and we’re pretty sure our loved ones will too… if we can bear to give it away, that is.
