It’s come to my attention that designers seem to be really fond of the black and blue color combo. It’s not the most obvious mix of colors, and maybe that’s why it works. I mean, you don’t see women wearing navy and black often, do you? But what can make the look work is the use of a brighter blue to punctuate the black, as on the Chloe Medium Alice Leather Satchel. This is a smart bag that just makes sense, what with its functionally chic interior packed with pockets. It’s smart, relatively fuss-free and will be with you for a lifetime. Available for $2250 at Nordstrom.
