What kind of bag serves as a cross body, shoulder strap tote, clutch and handbag? The bag of our (and major fashion bloggers’) dreams: the satchel. Lately, satchels have become the bag of choice that’s popping up all over this season from accessible retailers to the runway.
This versatile bag can be found in all sorts of colors and fabrics, and can easily transition from day to night. Offered in a variety of sizes, options range from large enough for your laptop to just small enough to fit a favorite lipstick. We particularly love the purse styled with an over-sized sweater, shorts and boots.
One thing’s for certain: This bag can be used for basically any occasion no matter if you’re a party girl, a tourist or even a busy schoolgirl looking for an easy way to tote her things around campus. Check out the slideshow to see how some of your favorite bloggers are sporting this bag style. We recommend it as an accessory essential for now and to bring with you into fall.
