Black and Gold

If you are going to buy only one bag this season (we know you won’t, but still), make sure it can go with everything. Black and gold are the combination making a comeback this year in a big way. Whether your look is flirty, professional or casual, choose your weapon wisely. The Jimmy Choo Malena Satchel, $1595, is in durable nylon with gold-tone hardware and snakeskin-textured leather making it both practical and chic. Marc Jacobs’ Jen Satchel, $775, features an inverted pleat, gold tone zipper, closure and accented belt, making it the perfect complement for a sophisticated professional. The Chloé Kira Medium Satchel, $1795, is the hallmark of casual. The supple, washed calfskin leather is accented with fancy flap closure, removable shoulder strap, graceful gold-tone chain wraps and nail heads.
