Taylor Swift's Summer Bag Is Really Good

Handbags may not be as seasonal as parkas or caftans—unless, say, you're carrying a fur-covered hobo or woven raffia tote—but still, something about Taylor Swift's new bag feels as decidedly summer as Flintstones Push Up pops and melting Chapstick.

Sure, I can't help but think of summer when I see the way Taylor carries the Patricia Nash satchel with classic June to August staples, like light jeans and tortoise sunglasses. But I can imagine it in so many other situations, and all of them are on days when the sun sets after 7 PM.

Really, the bag would fit a festival-goer as well as it does the preppy pop star, stashing tickets and a souvenir t-shirt while its owner dances in a white dress and booties. And it's neutral, unassuming look is an easy complement to the season's brightest trends (floral printed jeans, neon anything). Whatever the outfit, the bag's honeyed color and bendy leather make it the warm weather counterpart to a more glossy, structured satchel like Prada's new satchels.

And maybe this is the best part: Patricia Nash bags are wallet-friendly. Taylor's "Mantova" costs just $188, and all are under $270.
