Best Bet: A.OK’s Winter-White Bag


Though pristine white ensembles are typically reserved for warmer weather (only until Labor Day, outdated wisdom says), there's something undeniably chic about winter-white accessories — especially in contrast to fall's sea of black and charcoal gray. This textured white leather handbag is large enough for subway schlepping and can be toted by the handles or slung over a shoulder with the detachable strap. It's reminiscent of Alexander Wang's fall 2009 bags in crackled cowboy gray — albeit at a fraction of the price — and looks fresh paired with dark, autumnal hues.
