I just bought Givenchy’s black and white-checkered clutch from Bergdorf Goodman (and paid full retail, as I do with most of my bags). I’m completely in love with it and thought I was done with the trend, but now Maiyet’s Sophie bag (on NET-A-PORTER for $1,250) is calling my name! It’s dressier and subtler than the checkered pattern, so I need it in my life, right (wink wink)? Plus, there’s nothing chicer than sparkle of gold against minimalist black and white. If you only buy one bag this season, make it one of these. The light and dark combo is a neutral that goes with everything! Besides, this is a trend with timeless taste – it will never go out of style. Here are some more black and whites at all the right price points:
Milly Kiera Clutch: Compared to Milly’s hologram-heavy Fall 2013 collection, this bag is pretty tame, but it’s right on the money with a classic, sleek shape and detachable chain strap. On Shopbop for $335.
