3 Ways To Style It: Chanel’s New It Bag

Share

Who needs a boyfriend when you can have a girl…bag that is. First there was the Chanel 2.5, then there was the Boy and now, there is the Girl Bag. Introduced at the Parisian house’s Spring ’15 runway show, the low-slung, cross-body carryall brings to mind a classic Chanel cardigan or jacket (it even has buttons). This may not be what you typically picture when you think of a Chanel It Bag, but that’s part of why we love it: This is the purse for the girl who you don’t expect to see wearing a Chanel bag—the edgy update to the quilted icon. With a bag this big and bold, styling is key. Here, we show you how to work the fashion-set must-have into three key looks: weekend, work and evening. Girl, you look good.
