Fall Wardrobe Essentials; Day 9

If there's one bag that's been talked about the most this season (thanks to Mansur Gavriel and YSL), it's the bucket bag. 70s icon and it-girl accessory du jour, the bucket bag is the epitome of casual cool. Black and heavily studded, it works downtown for drinks. In soft caramel leather, it channels a more collegiate vibe. Preppy or edgy, there's a version out there for everyone. This is not a new silhouette. There are a lot of versions out there at a lot of different price points. Thrifting for this bag could be the best deal out there.
