Unconventional Sizes: The Bigger (or Smaller) The Better

You may have noticed the mini bag trend that's been sweeping the fashion world the past few months, but now the style's larger handheld cousin is stepping into the ring again – enter oversized clutches. Whether you lead a less cluttered lifestyle and strive to carry nothing but the essentials, or want a larger flatter style to elevate the formality of your look,
these two styles are foolproof choices this season.

Leather  Slouched Silhouettes

Can't go wrong with a classic. Mix up traditional leather styles by playing with structure; slouched silhouettes are smokin' this season. Leather's minimalist nature emphasizes your 'fit, while a slouched silhouette makes your look more casual.
