This week's Fashionisto shows you how to rock a men's bag with a little swag. Carry-alls and tote bags are staple accessories of the modern man, and the best way to avoid stuffing everything into your pant pockets.
Choosing the right bag is easy, and a great thing to have since they can add another dynamic to your outfit. Totes are perfect for weekends in the city — see it as an extention of your pocket or wallet since you can throw random leaflets, coupons, water bottles and snacks in it. Plus, the lucozade bottle stuffed in the back of your jeans is a huge no no.
Personally, I love a good bag — I've been carrying my trusty woven leather carry-all for a couple years now, and it always gets compliments. My biggest gripe with backpacks is that they seem to always be either too big or too small. Men's fashion is lucky since many brands take great pride and attention in the build quality, materials and practicality of their accessories, and bags are no exception.
Go for a quality bag with neutral styling and you can't go wrong, like a leather bag. Ladies have been reaping the benefits of their purses for years — guys, it's your turn!
