I’m an avowed lover of black. I generally prefer it in clothes rather than bags, but lately I find myself drawn to more black bags than usual, and also black shoes. I could wear black for the rest of my life and be more or less happy.

That’s not true for everyone, though, and if you’re one of those weird people that prefers to keep the black to a minimum (seriously, you’re weird), then the Botkier Prince Crossbody Bag is a perfect option if you’re looking for a dark neutral for fall.

Even as a black devotee, I can’t help but love this little bag. Colored suede is important for fall, and the way that navy and black look together is a bit of an obsession of mine. Even though I don’t wear a lot of navy, this bag could still fit easily into my wardrobe. If you gravitate more toward grey, cream or brown as your main neutral, even better – navy looks perfect against all three. Buy through ShopBop for $295.

    The color and style are both working and this is the perfect way to try a suede bag.

    Love this bag. Also love navy bags but hard to achieve the right shade of navy. The suede adds nice texture and the colour is spot-on.
