Studded Bags and Ladylike Satchels
The runways for Fall/Winter 2012 featured handbags complete with heavy metal chains, enormous hardware, and work-ready structure. We like these three choices for their interesting details, wearable colors, and unique designs. They're big enough to hold your necessities but without weighing you down. They'll also look equally chic paired with a floral summer dress, as they will with jeans and ankle boots in a few months.
