Cole Haan Village Satchel

It's time to look ahead to the fall, ladies. "But it's August?" you might be asking. Yes, I know, but fashion is always months ahead of the present day, and true fashionistas should never get left behind. So let's discuss one of the biggest trends for the upcoming season - metallics. When fall and winter arrive, so do dark (and sometimes boring) colors. The sure-fire way to dress up a drab suit or monotone outfit is with a fabulous handbag. A metallic-hued bag is a great option, but the key to success is keeping it simple. Find a bag that best fits your daily needs, but won't appear "cheap". There is nothing scarier that a cheap-looking metallic handbag. Ouch! Keep metallics on the muted side. A matte, gunmetal silver color as seen on the Cole Haan Village Satchel, for example, gets the job done. Instead of over-the-top design elements or gaudy hardware, this smart handbag relies on subtle ruching and a vintage-inspired frame top to command attention. Soft leather, buckled leather shoulder straps, zip top and lined interior with zip and slip pockets polish off this functional selection. Measuring 15 x 13.5 x 5, the 'Village' will store all your essentials plus quite a bit more. Coming in at just under $400 via Zappos Couture, this Cole Haan design follows the trends without becoming their victim. It's a safe, classic choice with loads of appeal and style, and, best of all, it won't break the bank.
