Slouchy Shoulders

Summer's casual, hippie-chic fashions call for an equally easy-to-carry handbag. Here, five of the most stylish ways to hang loose.

If you're a serious bag girl -- the type who can't leave the house without everything from an extra pair of slides to a portable fan in tow, you'll love this season's hip, oversize satchels.

For work, try Kenneth Cole's red satchel ($140 at Kenneth Cole) -- it's on the conservative side but will brighten up even the most neutral business attire. Or take a slouchier approach with Jones New York's tan version ($69 at Lord & Taylor).

The slouchiest, trendiest versions are best saved for the weekend. Famed for his clunky shoes, Steve Madden also has some decidedly chic, supple suede bags. We like the unstructured tan hobo ($89). Banana Republic's large linen version ($68) is just a tad preppier. And then there's our favorite of all: The Sak Elliott Lucca's striped drawstring pouch ($65 at Lord & Taylor), in stretchy, colorful nylon.
