Felicity Jones’ Croc-Effect Bag Is So Easy To Dress Up — Here’s How She Does It


The addition of a statement bag holds the power to transform an understated outfit into a bold and daring look. Expanding your purse collection far past the bounds of simple black crossbodies can seem out of reach, but a neutral-colored piece with a subtle print can make all the difference. If you're in desperate need of an elegant variety, look no further than Felicity Jones' croc-effect bag.

Jones has captured the public eye over the past few months in light of her latest movie, On the Basis of Sex. The actor, who plays Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the film, was photographed in New York City's Meat Packing district on Mon. wearing a a distinctly straightforward ensemble. The look was made up of a white strapless midi dress (that had a slight blue tint, thanks to the flash of a camera), a black longline blazer with prominently pointed lapels, and a pair of metallic heeled sandals.

While the look was undeniably sophisticated, the piece that brought it all together was her croc-effect micro bag by By Far. The '90s-inspired piece features a unique deep-gray color, a structured top handle silhouette, and a front-flap closure. With just enough room for the essentials, this bag is the perfect companion for a night out.

If you've spent any time scrolling through your Instagram feed in recent weeks, you're probably familiar with the international accessories brand, By Far. The brand recently broadened its selection of vintage-inspired shoes with a super-chic assortment of retro bags. Celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid, and Elsa Hosk have helped the bags gain even more acclaim.

What makes Jones' take on the trend groundbreaking is the way she brought her By Far purse into the formalwear sphere. It's practically a given that these trendy pieces can be easily thrown on with jeans and a cardigan, but Jones' style proves they're just as effective for a dressy occasion.
