Normally I shy away from any trends that can be construed as “boho” or “hippie,” which means that my acquiescence to the tie-dye bag trend has been slow and gradual. The Matt & Nat Hendrix Bag just might put me over the top, though.
I think that what makes me appreciate this bag over others like it is that it’s black-based. Most boho trend pieces tend to be very heavy on the brown, which is a color that doesn’t really work with my personal aesthetic (not to mention my hair color). Black, however, is completely within my comfort zone.
The black background makes the turquoise and orange really pop, and if you prefer to wear dark colors but still want to incorporate a summer-appropriate accessory, this is a great way to do it. Plus, if you’re opposed to the use of animal products, Matt & Nat is a great brand to patronize – none of its bags use leather. Buy through ShopBop for $165.
