The Hobo Bag!

The Hobo bag is the hottest accessory this season. Hobo bags are very practical to carry and still have a fashionable look. They come in different sizes, ranging from the larger versions which are spacious enough for you to carry essentials but also stylish enough to make a statement, to the smaller ones. Hobo bags usually have a slouchy top and shoulder strap. Some of the latest designs come in suede, warm browns, denim and smooth leather. For the business look you could go for a more structured hobo bag and for casual look you can pick up a softer version.

Some of my favorites of this season are:

Furla Elisabeth Camoscio/Croco Hobo in Suede: $495

The Gucci new Jackie bag: $3150            

 Balenciaga Giant leather day bag : $ 1445

Furla matt python print hobo bag: $595

Furla Elisabeth Camoscio/Croco Hobo in Suede: $495

Olivia Harris Zippered North/South leather hobo bag: $ 525

Marc Jacobs small Boho woven hobo bag: $1795

Denim Fever!!!

Why is denim so  HOT this season?  Denim never goes out of style, but this season head-to-toe denim has become a bona fide trend. We see jeans leggings, cut-off shorts, skirts and dresses, boyfriend pants, denim shirts and motocross jackets and waistcoats, stone wash tight jeans and ‘ripped’ jeans which  are really HOT this season. Some designers this season showcased denim-on denim looks in their collections. These included: Ralph Lauren, Helmut Lang ( a darker denim), D&G, Rag & Bone Resort collection ( layered denim) and Jason Wu ( denim dress).

There’s something Cool about wearing denim, it’s very Individual. People can put their  spin on the way they wear it, how they style it and how it fits and molds to their shapes and bodies.  Denim is comfortable and  you can wear it both day and night. It has a casual feel but it can also be dressed up with a blazer and nice pair of high heels.

Also it’s important to know that if you are going to wear an all-over denim look and pull it off, you will need to wear a variety of denim looks and washes, or different shades of blue, such as a darker denim with a lighter denim and mix and match with black or white.

Here are some examples from the collections mentioned above:
