TREND: The Fashion Ketchup to Your Burger

Some girls are ketchup girls, some are mustard girls. Some want relish, some want onions. Add your favorite condiment to anything right off the grill and it is like the savory version of “icing on the cake” or “the cherry on top.” What is the fashion version of “icing on the cake”? The perfect purse. The one that is the finishing touch for every outfit. This season, that means a cross-body bag. While the oversized slouchy hobo bag is still fashionable, the cross-body bag is more practical for a barbecue or a quick trip to the store.

This Fashionista has the purse of choice this season: the Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Totally Turnlock Percy Cross-Body Bag'. This purse also comes in a lovely faux patent. Some other great cross-body bag styles in the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection are the 'Totally Turnlock Bell' and the 'Classic Q Nugget.' Similar to this Fashionista, you can pair your cross-body bag with a ditzy floral print dress, a simple cardigan, and nude ballet flats or you can wear it with jeans and a t-shirt. Once you find the perfect bag for you, you will become a cross-body bag girl and put that slouchy hobo on the back burner.

Hint: If you aren’t so sure about the cross-body bag or any other trend, check out stores like Forever 21 or Target that offer wallet-friendly options. At Target, you can find this cute silver cross-body bag or this one from the Hollywood Intuition collection. Once you know the trend is something you will adopt for more than one season, don’t be afraid to splurge. You will be using the bag for years to come.
