Are you feeling the Saint Laurent Betty bag yet? I’ve liked it in every color, but when the sleek, minimalist style got studded on this mini version, I knew I was in love. Every girl needs a small black bag, and Hedi Slimane knows that we don’t all want our minis to match! Strategically placed pyramid studs on the geometric flap are all it takes to glam up the simple shoulder bag. A delicate snakelike chain balances out heavy hardware and infuses some disco glam into the mix. No doubt the bag is rock chic but it’s also ready for a quick run to the grocery store, and that’s the kind of piece we’re willing to invest in. I expect the likes of Zara and Forever 21 will come up with look-alikes in the coming months, but nothing’s better than the real thing. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue for $2,650.
Pair with: A daring bag calls for an equally daring dress. Lanvin’s sexy, asymmetric crepe number will be your showstopper, providing the dramatic juxtaposition of a flared sleeve over a barely there black bodysuit (which is detachable, should you want to make other plans for it). Available on Luisa via Roma for $4,955.
