Book it: 2018 will be the year of the man bag. To hell with the implication that you’re less of a man if you use anything smaller than a briefcase. It’s a new era; the stigma is gone. Besides, you must admit, ladies had the right idea with this whole purse thing. Between your wallet, keys, phone, and soon-to-no-longer-be-illicit substances, your pockets probably look hella bloated with all that stuff in them.
What you need is a nifty crossbody bag — it’ll feel like you’re living life with a cheat code. What’s more, they’re more stylish today than ever, with luxury-goods houses like Hugo Boss and Gucci now making their own variations. Yes, fashion and utility can coexist. All hail the European carryall!
