The Top Handles
Very few bags qualify as fun to carry, but that changes when their handles are basically giant bangle bracelets. Grab a teeny, tiny ring bag, like Simon Miller's Bonsai style, as an alternative to a clutch for a night out, or stash your weekday essentials in a roomier pick, like Future Glory's architectural (but not too serious) Rockwell bag.
Do the rings on the flaps of these crossbody bags all serve a purpose? Not necessarily. Do they all look great? Yes, absolutely. Try Madewell's O-Ring style or Tory Burch's tassel bag with summer's gauzey blouses while you still can, or pick up a chain-strap version by Little Liffner or Banana Republic for a slightly more polished look.
