Good morning, Thursday. I'm working from home today because I have a bit of a cold type situation so writing to you from under the duvet. But a little allergy/cold does not stop this maven from bringing you another post about one of my favorite trends for Spring, the ring bag. I love the 70s vibe of this bag- very chic, vaguely equestrian, and most of all, super on trend like the Chloe version above. I've gathered my favs at various price points below, so why not give this hot little trend a ring:
For classic mavens- The Chloe Faye. If you are a dedicated follower of fashion, you well know this covetable bag from Chloe. I'd say Chloe is the major influencer for this trend, and this bag, while super spendy, is an instant classic even though it's very much of the moment. Gorgeous. Comes in different colors and such and is so lovely.
For wallet watching mavens- Who knew that Lauren Conrad of "Hills" fame had such a flair for fashion? Well I did actually. But this collection she did with Kohl's is fairly on point, and the price point for this bucket bag is wallet friendly and a great way to ring in the season.
For all purpose mavens- Love this bag from Theory- super easy to wear, takes you from day to night and back again. Pretty much a perfect little bag. And love the pony hair.
For high fashion mavens- I love JW Anderson. Love him in a very real way. This Pierce bag is super duper fashion forward and will most likely get you stopped on the street for its coolness and wink to a bit of kink. Again, expensive- but fantastic.
For minimal mavens- It's no secret San Fran's got some major fashion cred of late with the likes of Everlane and other great startups. I adore this bag from Future Glory, a line based in the Bay Area. It's perfection and suits the most minimal of mavens. In fact, it's my number one pick on this list. I love the merlot color and would wear this bag with loose white dresses and sandals in the summer. Love. Ok obsessed. Truly. Madly. Deeply.
For emerging mavens- I don't know- something about this bag screams Greenpoint or Bushwick to me. I love it. It's cute for whatever and super Instagram worthy. Great starter bag from young brand Otaat/Myers. Fab. Plus when Garmentory tells me to buy something, I usually do. Don't you love the color too? Nice with the hardware.
For preppy mavens- I love the preppy vibe of this saddle bag from Madewell. It would be great with a striped button down and jeans and some ballets or loafers. Also love it with a shrunken blue blazer. Very cute. Very Ivy League. Yet much less than tuition at Harvard. Good times.
For colorful mavens- A clear green bag with a ring? Yes please. Don't mind if I do. Great bag for the beach and beyond. Very fashion forward and fun and vintage in feel. Plus GREEN. You know how I love green.
For Swede obsessed mavens- You know who you are. You love Swedish design. And this lovely striped tote from Little Lifner is major- clean, spare, but still really fun because of the striped effect. Good stuff. Love. Great for work too.
For social media mavens- You know how you scroll through Instagram and feel the need to "buy it now"? Yea me too. I spotted this brand in my feed (Kohza) and fell madly in love with the Safe bag- super chic and minimal and great for schlepping your life around. Apparently so did lots of other people, because this line is very hot at the moment and blowing up feeds all over the world. Racked shouted it out here and it really is all that.
So there you have it- a ring bag for every type of maven out there. Clearly a trend to watch and you heard and saw it here. Now go forth and shop. Cause that's what's up this bag loving kind of Thursday in the 718. Yours, in ringing in the new season, with a great new bag or two. XO
