Hip Bags

Choosing a black handbag may not seem like the most unique way to express your style. But, it’s a great way to invest your money in a tote that will go with most everything in your closet. If you want to mix it up a bit, how about trying a mid-sized purse with a long strap that hits you right at the hip?

From above left, Rachel Bilson, Kate Bosworth and Ashlee Simpson are all wearing this trend with a lot of success. Kate and Ashlee’s straps are even long enough to wear it cross-body, which is not only comfortable but a good way to keep your bag safe and sound.
