One of the biggest trends right now is 60s inspired wear, ranging from clothing, footwear, and handbags. This Chloé “Darla” Shoulder Bag demonstrates this 60s inspired appeal, which is exhibited in more of a modern way with an emphasis on sophistication. The lady-like silhouette complements the vintage aesthetic, by which this handbag is impeccably tailored. Though I usually associate Chloé for its affinity of neutral and tan hues, I appreciate the boldness of the red color. Seemingly, this bag shows off a feminine and vintage charm and I really love Rachel Bilson’s modern take on this trend.

This bag is quite practical with an extra strap so that it can be worn like a crossbody bag. This increases the level of convenience without losing the elegant and polished aspect.
