The Look Is In The Bag

August 14, 1994|By Vida Roberts | Vida Roberts,Sun Fashion Editor

This fall's vibrant and energetic clothes call for a bag with some zip -- a bag that can carry off a look rather than just carry necessities. That may mean a bag with some structure, some polish and perhaps even a touch of whimsy. It's a season to consider splurging on a bag to suit one fabulous outfit.

So give those all-purpose, boring career totes some time off. They're tired and can't be expected to work seven-day weeks and 12-hour days and still hold a sophisticated look together.
