In case you hadn’t noticed, what with the sudden inundation of embellished and patchwork denim, soft and accessible suede, and fringe everything, the ’70s are back in full swing. Now is the time to rock your brow-skimming bangs (fear not the constant maintenance and let them hang!), teetering platforms, curvaceous bell-bottoms, and most importantly, a shoulder bag worthy of the chicest hippie at the music festival.
Like Chloé’s Faye shoulder bag. You can always trust the house that basically invented sophisticated bohemian style to take funky elements like chunky ring hardware and an unapologetic mash-up of caramel-brown suede and bold python and make them look painfully cool. Plus, with functional elements like multiple compartments and an accordion-style design for a sleek silhouette, it’s a hippie-Snob bag you can use nonstop, festivals or not. Chloé Faye at Neiman Marcus for $2,590.
Pair with: The best-matched counterpart to a pair of mega-bells and a freewheeling bag? A slim, body-skimming bodysuit, of course. Michael Kors’ ribbed stretch wool-blend one brings the right kind of texture to the mix. On NET-A-PORTER for $595.
