Do you like saddle bags? Saddle bags are always one of the staples of the fall season. It has something to do with a hunting season. You definitely know the classical pictures of hunters with their brown thick leather saddle bags on one shoulder and a pheasant over the other. Every year, fans of this trend are waiting for the new releases. I have been wearing this Tom Ford Jennifer bag last few years with love. Well but I want to report to you that there is a new player in town! She is made by Chloe and her name is Tess. Chloe Tess bag reflects perfectly the spirit of Parisienne chic girl.
I am not a typical Chloe girl, as I can’t really pull of this bohemian look. However I must say this is probably their nicest bag along with Chloe Nile. The other day I was in Harrods with a friend of mine and even though our style is quite different, we were both very much drawn to this beauty. Chloe Tess bag has something for everyone.
Lets start with size. Chloe Tess bag comes in two different sizes, small and large. In my opinion, the large version is just too big. However if you are looking for something more everyday all day kind of bag, the large one would be better for you. I love the small size. You might need to be very selective with things you actually put in, but I think you would manage. This size is perfect for day to night wear and will look great with most of the outfits.
Last but not least, the style. The style is a mixture of bohemian shape and elegant closure and clasp with signature ring. It comes in quite a lot of colours, all earthy and ideal for fall. But my favourite are this grey and brown pieces. Actually my friend and I couldn’t decide which is nicer. They would both fit really well with most of the fall fashion. Jeans, high boots and cashmere sweater, would be definitely one on my list. If you want to dress this bag up a little, wear it with silk blouse and wool trousers.
So without a further do, lets have a look at the most amazing ones.
