Generally, stars vary their day-to-day handbag choices quite a lot. Not only does the average celebrity have plenty of money to buy whichever bag she might desire, but most are also regularly sent the Next Big Thing by brands with which they have existing relationships. Not only does it help the brands subtly promote their products, but it gives stars new things to be photographed with every time they leave their houses. Sometimes, though, a star loves a bag so much that it becomes a constant companion, and that appears to be the case with Taylor Swift and her Dolce & Gabbana Sara Bag.
Taylor's clothing choices are always very measured and precise, probably out of consideration for her traditionally young fanbase and her carefully crafted image as on of pop music's girls next door. As Taylor has gotten older, though, she's embraced pieces that are more expensive and luxurious, and this bag is a great example of how her stylists are attempting to bridge the gap between the new and old Taylor. The Sara is from an enormously well-known luxury brand, but it's not flashy or particularly obvious. Taylor's preferred versions of the bag are neutral and mid-sized, which makes the look seem accessible to her admirers, despite the fact that it retails for two grand. Those leather versions are currently a bit scarce, but you can pick up the bag in black lace for $1,896 via MATCHESFASHION.COM or gold brocade for $1,945 via Net-a-Porter.
For all the ways that Taylor has worn her Sara bags, check out the gallery below.
