Having a variety of cute satchels on hand can help when accessorizing that perfect outfit. Whether you need a trusted handbag for everyday use or like to switch it up with each wardrobe change, there are plenty of colors and styles from which even the most discriminating fashionistas can choose.
Dooney & Bourke, GUESS, and Fossil are a sampling of today’s leading names in handbags. These top designers bring their own flavor to the classic handled bag, ensuring there is the ideal bag out there for every occasion. The satchel is a bag that tends to feature a short handle, placing the body of the purse just underneath the arms and above the waist when carried. The bag itself can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but most satchels often have a rectangular or squared silhouette. They often have exterior pockets and plenty of interior space, which makes them a favorite for use as an everyday purse.
Cute satchels should be just as functional as they are fashionable, and today’s leading designers are ensuring this classic handbag is well versed in both areas. Choose a faux leather bag accented with designer signature detailing, such as a signature plaque at the front closure, but appreciate its spacious interior that includes enough pockets to hold a smartphone, PDA, makeup essentials, and other must-haves. Many of these interiors feature a fun and flirty interior lining that boasts colors to complement the purse’s exterior. This lining also protects the leather, faux leather, or canvas body.
Although most satchels are made for women and juniors, designers will occasionally create designs for men. A distressed leather and canvas bag with antiqued hardware is a masculine solution to business and travel needs. Other satchels are created for luggage collections, serving as a convenient carry-on or weekend bag.
