Patterned Wash Bags


Thinking of a wash bag as something that should be stylish might not seem to be at the top of the list of most people’s fashion priorities. However, patterned wash bags have become a major trend thanks in part to brands like Paul Smith. Gone are the days of the standard neutral colors like black and gray; now you need a wash bag that really stands out. It might not be an item like an “it” bag, but don’t you want something colorful to hold your travel essentials?

Charlotte Olympia Havaianas


Charlotte Olympia is known for her stylish, Art Deco–inspired shoes that have become red-carpet favorites and must-have items. The designer recently collaborated with Havaianas to launch a collection of sandals, which are the perfect item for those of you heading down to Miami for the winter. Her sandals allow you to have fun and be stylish in the sun and sand.
