This year, the inimitable Marc Jacobs has created something truly special, an accessory that offers the perfect balance of practicality and luxury: the J Marc Shoulder Bag. Inspired and evolved from the iconic designs of the spring/summer 2016 collection, it’s a convertible bag crafted in smooth leather and sealed by J Marc hardware.
This classic shape will have you reaching for it whether you’re dashing to yoga or cocktails with friends. You can take it from casual to formal by swapping the chain shoulder strap with the webbing crossbody option, or carry it as a clutch for the evening. Thoughtfully, the bag comes with extra straps as standard for extra versatility. Here are three ways to wear it this season.
Gone are the days when a crossbody strap was only acceptable to keep your valuables safe when traveling; it’s now an everyday accessory with hands-free practicality at its core.
How to style it
For days when your schedule is more go and less no, an outfit that allows for movement and comfort is key. Try a knitted lounge set for a cozy, laid-back look. Or when the heat is on, wear this season’s answer to the denim cut-off – the sweat short – with a fail-safe crisp white tee. Layer your J Marc Shoulder Bag neatly across your body – the generously cut webbing strap will work hard but stay kind on your shoulder.
The candy colorway in pops of lime green or hot pink will inject some fun and nostalgia into your life, providing the ideal way to experiment with brights if they’re not usually your thing.
Shoulder it well
There is little else more satisfying than a chic bag on your shoulder, particularly if it has a chunky-chain strap inspired by the iconic Marc Jacobs Stam bag.
How to style it
When you’re keen to showcase your individuality, you could have some fun with clashing prints and shapes. Pick your patterns, go wild for animals or fancy with florals, and pair oversized items with sleeker pieces — no need to conform to prescriptive formulas here. Then add the J Marc Shoulder Bag with its chunky hardware chain to your expressive outfit of choice and you’ll realize just how adaptable it is.
No bag says ‘I’m heading out-out’ more than the treasured clutch. It adds an air of minimal coolness to your ensemble, while staying roomy enough for all your after-dark needs.
How to style it
Marc Jacobs is renowned for his long-term love affair with the grunge era – he was famously fired for daring to send the style down the runway in 1992. But over the decades, his commitment to the simple elegance of the slip dress is unparalleled, which is why pairing it with the J Marc Shoulder Bag in clutch form is an easy win. The silky shimmer of the dress, together with the tough, boxy shape of the bag creates a timeless duo.
