Dear Anne, In the summer I carry a canvas bag, which seems to work with everything. Is there a fall equivalent—something that’s easy, polished, and still holds what I need?—Ashley L.
Dear Ashley, It’s true—the canvas bag is great because it’s a casual neutral that goes with everything. I love an “It bag,” but the reality is daily life calls for something a bit more understated that has staying power. See below for some of my favorite decidedly non-statement bags ripe for the seasonal shift. Each is in its own way a neutral and conveys the subliminal message we can all get behind: laid-back chic.
