Valentino My Rockstud Striped Frame and Loewe Amazona 75 Small Leather Shoulder Bags: Pass with Flying Colors


There are girls who get dressed and then just toss a bag over their shoulder as an afterthought. (Clearly, I am not one of those girls.) And then there’s kind of girl who lives – and dresses – vicariously through her bags. She’s the Snob who wears the simplest of jeans and tees and likes to let her bold accessory do the work. Because sometimes that’s all it takes to provide high style and individuality.

Enter this high-energy duo of Technicolor dream bags. Who knew stripes looked this good on Valentino? Their My Rockstud frame top-handle packs an unexpected rainbow of stripes into a crisp, classic silhouette. The best part: hues like bubblegum pink and burgundy shouldn’t necessarily go together, but this mash-up couldn’t look better. On the flipside of the mega-colorful spectrum is Loewe’s Amazona shoulder bag. Black trim poses a balanced contrast to a powerful weave of high-octane panels for an instant shot of energy. So which of these snappy must-haves hits your color-craving sweet spot? Valentino Rockstud bag, $3,545, available for pre-order at Neiman Marcus. Loewe Amazona 75 shoulder bag, $2,990, on My Theresaicon.

Frugal Find: Try Kate Spade New York’s Cedar Street Maise bag as an accessibly-priced option. Perky, preppy stripes and a convertible top-handle-to-crossbody design makes for great versatility. On Neiman Marcus for $278.
