Brand Spotlight: She + Lo

Brand Spotlight: she + lo(Source: She + Lo Rise Above Crossbody, $278; Next Chapter Perforated Satchel, $298)We like to think of handbags as the accessories equivalent of our very best friends: they're so lovely and dependable, we can't imagine our life (or wardrobes) without 'em. And She + Lo, a new line of essential totes, satchels, crossbody and messenger bags ($118–$398), perfectly capture this fun-meets-functional balance we need in our BFFs (human and otherwise).

Brand Spotlight: she + lo(Source: She + Lo Another Day Mini Crossbody, $118; Next Chapter Satchel, $298)Launched this fall by veteran bag designers Sheila Nazarian and Laura Darrah, the collection boasts relaxed, Cali-cool silhouettes in a range of inspired finishes such as opaque metallic and beveled lamb leathers. The colors, too, are wear-everywhere perfect: look out for neutral black, whites, grays and taupes, with pops of just-right hunter green and pale pink.

Brand Spotlight: she + lo(Source: She + Lo Rise Above Mini Satchel, $348; Next Chapter Bag, $268)We could enumerate the gazillion ways you'll wear these beautifully-made, versatile styles. But the fact that accessories goddess Olivia Palermo recently stepped out with She + Lo's perfect Next Chapter Bag ($268) is probably all you need to know.
