Everyone needs a sturdy leather bag, but finding a decently priced one made out of quality leather is no easy feat. Fortunately, Cos has an especially stylish under-$200 option that can withstand the hustle of your day-to-day routine. It’s not so big that it will become too cumbersome to carry, but if you don’t want to bother with carrying it over your shoulder, adjustable straps can transform it into a cross-body. Emphasize the bright color with a romantic white blouse and relaxed trousers.
