The shape of things to come… the winged satchel is Spring’s go-to silhouette

The winged satchel for Spring 2014


Junk mail, important files from work, yesterday’s scarf (it was itchy), a water bottle… these and many more items find their way into my tote on a regular basis! If you are like me, your tote/carryall/satchel can be your saving grace… and your downfall.

I prefer a roomy tote to handle all of the bric-a-brac I seem to attract. Of course, the bigger my tote, the more stuff I seem to accumulate!

Whether you travel heavy or light, a clean lined satchel is a must-have for a busy woman on the go. And this Spring’s trendiest tote is the winged satchel. With its distinctive silhouette, a winged satchel is an instant update to your Spring wardrobe.

I’ve showcased a few of my top picks above. I also found some beautiful options at Ann TaylorMacy’s and Tommy Hilfiger.

What do you think? Does a winged satchel make your heart take flight?
