The Accessory Report. Ladylike Redux In The Perfect Pop of Red

 

Mango Mini Top Handle Bag

Whether you pair it down with jeans and a tee, or use it to compliment  your LBD, the top handle bag is bringing some serious ladylike sophistication back. However, instead of the classic versions of the past (think neutral colors in a boxy silhouette), designers have added a touch of flair to their collections by crafting top handle bags in exotic materials, highly-saturated colors and decorative details that range from the braided frames at Fendi to the circular embellishments at Louis Vuitton.

This trend is so versatile, because it can up the ante on almost any look you pair it with, and it comes in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. I chose to add some panache to my current denim and men’s button-down situation with this red option, and my mostly monochrome wardrobe just hasn’t been the same since.
