Love the studded trend but afraid it’s a tad unprofessional and not suited for the office? Then this Cole Haan Stud Detail Messenger Bag is your answer. It’s a classic messenger, so it won’t draw too much attention. But the genius is in the details here. The studs are carefully placed along the flap’s edges, giving it a slightly Old-Western style- but not too much that you need to break out those cowboy boots in order to feel ok wearing it.
The reason this element is balanced out, I think, lies in the inherent slim shape of the bag. It’ll lie flat against your hip rather than bulging out and looking messy. The shape and mini-studs, plus the faintest shine in the grained leather, make this is fashionable bag. Even if you work in the most conservative of offices, that’s no reason to shun your stylish gear- simply sleekify your wardrobe with subtly sophisticated items such as this.
