I’d go so far as to say that a leather duffel bag was my best purchase of 2012. I chose this one and haven’t had to check baggage since. (It’s amazing how much you can pack into a weekender!)
This color has gotten a bad rap for unappealing names like burgundy and (shudder) maroon. But it’s time to shake the stigma and embrace oxblood, a richly saturated hue that’s flattering on most complexions. If the color feels too serious for you, pair it with an unexpected jolt of hot pink.
