Ask any girl about the one accessory she can’t live without, and she will be likely to say her purse. Purses are fantastic. They’re essential. They can really take an outfit from looking pretty drab to really rad. They come in all shapes, colors and styles, making it fairly easy to find a unique purse to accentuate your style. They can hold just about anything you could ever think of needing while you’re out and about. Why shouldn’t boys get to capitalize on this too?
Boys are, for the most part, stuck in their ways of carrying wallets. But wallets are so limiting! Sure, wallets are able to contain the essentials: IDs, credit cards, money. Everything else that a boy would like to carry is left out, though. What about chapstick or ibuprofen? I know I can’t live without carrying those with me everywhere. That’s why I think this Fashionisto has the right idea with his satchel. It’s the perfect color, as could be paired with pretty much any look. It goes perfectly with his chambray shirt and military green pants. Any question of his satchel’s masculinity is irrelevant because of his Dr. Martens—they stomp out any doubts. His striped shirt adds a pop of pattern, as does his watch. While each piece of his outfit would look fine on its own, his satchel really pulls everything together.
