Best Bet: Mesh Leopard-Print Hobo


Ladylike, structured bags were all over the fall runways, but they don’t seem to be very realistic for busy New Yorkers who need to fit everything for the office, yoga, and after-work drinks into one carryall. This mesh Snow Leopard hobo lets you rock the animal-print trend without having to opt for real (or faux) fur, and its slouchy shape and long strap allow you to tote lots of stuff hands-free. In muted black and silver, it’s a little more subdued than most of the other animal-print bags out there, making a more subtle statement that’s suitable for everyday.
