Despite all the bells and whistles of this — ruffled details, metallic hardware, shiny sequins — ladies with an affinity for subtlety can take comfort in the fact that there’s still something to be said about smooth, quality leather, classic handbag shapes, and understated chicness! The Dooney & Bourke Portofino Grommet Sac may not have excessive exposed zippers, convertible chain straps, or studs galore, but it does boast quality craftsmanship and plenty of room (including four linen-lined pockets for all easy-to-lose belongings), and realistically, what else do you need for your everyday go-to bag than versatility, durability, and effortless style? Its roomy interior allows space for everything you might need throughout the day, yet its supple leather allows it to fit comfortably at your side even when it’s not filled to the brim; in other words, it’s the perfect bag that you actually don’t mind hauling with you everywhere you go! And considering it comes in a whopping 15 different colors, it’s impossible to not find at least one that will coordinate with most of your wardrobe!
