What is an It-bag? A fancy handbag – like a chain mail clutch or a tiny mini bag – might initially come to mind. Of course, they’ll make you like you on Instagram and maybe collect a few compliments from strangers on the street. But often these flashy and up-to-date articles lack the portability to stay relevant, forcing them to break out of the trending cycle like a star at the end of its lifespan. Ultimately, the bags that stand the test of time are the ones that prioritize versatility. For example, consider the Coach shoulder bag that Jennifer Lopez wore recently.
Over the weekend, Lopez wore the brand’s brown Beat Saddle Bag, an easy-to-style leather accessory that comes in a classic rounded flap design. Due to its timeless look, the handbag pairs well with almost any outfit imaginable, making it a controversial-free staple that could rival any handbag competitor. In other words, the Coach’s Beat shoulder bag absoutely has what it takes to become the most wanted bag of 2021.
The multi-hyphen debuted in her purse on a daytime date with boyfriend, Ben Affleck, in Los Angeles. Her separate pieces – a pink-flowered Valentino sweater and lightly washed skinny jeans from MOTHER – like her Coach shoulder bag were simple and effortless. But remember, this is a J.Lo ensemble, which means there was a head-turning flair in its look as well.
The actor and singer also wore a pair of khaki boots adorned with Swarovski crystals from Timberland’s collaboration with Jimmy Choo. If you’ve followed the star since the ‘Jenny from the Block’ days, iconic work boots have been a staple of Lopez’s wardrobe for decades. However, his recent pair, with their very shiny collar, brought a playful touch to the ‘ugly’ utility shoe that felt original and so J.Lo.
Returning to Lopez’s latest handbag acquisition, an everyday crossbody bag happens to be one of Lopez’s most worn styles, which is an impressive feat considering the massive size of its collection of bags. Her timeless Coach handbag is currently available in seven different colourways: deep merlot (her favorite), emerald, brown, black, sage green, ivory and taupe. You will find the full assortment below.
