Part of being a fashion enthusiast (read: someone with a shopping problem) is keeping a diligent pulse on trends. You’re proud to be the first person in your group of friends to have the next item on a trending report, whether it’s a pair of platform loafers, a DIY mini skirt, or any other hottest accessory of the season. For me, that means having the next “It” bag hanging from my arm before it hits its peak of popularity.
I call it here and now, you’ll be seeing this J Marc Collection bag from Marc Jacobs everywhere this summer. And I don’t just mean all over your Instagram feed (although it will be there too).
The J Marc shoulder bag is the fashion equivalent of “having a girl who can do both,” but instead of doing both, it does three things at once. No, the secret of the designer bag does not lie in a hidden compartment but in the versatility of the interchangeable straps.
Going out for dinner in a hotspot in the city? You’re going to need a trendy shoulder bag that dangles glamorously from a chain to match the platform heels you’re wearing. The J Marc bag is exactly that. Are you planning a vacation abroad? You will need a comfortable shoulder bag to carry throughout the trip. The J Marc bag has struck again. And what about that wedding invitation hanging on your fridge? I probably don’t need to tell you that the J Marc bag too transforms into a formal clutch.
This bag silhouette is amazing as it looks great with all three strap options so will have great longevity from trendy to timeless. Speaking of timeless, the face of the J Marc collection is none other than iconic actress, Winona Ryder. In the Marc Jacobs campaign photos, Winona Ryder wears archive pieces from the designer’s collection paired with the new J Marc bag: the perfect blend of old and new to create a cool, classic style.
Winona Ryder is seen holding the bag in a bright green color, but with seven different colorways there are plenty of more neutral options if you prefer to take a more minimalist approach. Beyond the shade of your bag, you can also choose from different sizes and shapes, including the Snapshot Bag or a compact mini wallet. As long as the style you choose includes the signature interlocking J-clasp, you’re on the right track.
The J Marc shoulder bag in black
If you were a fan of the infamous Marc by Marc Jacobs Q Natasha Crossbody bag (you know, the black leather bag with gold hardware and the fold-over zipper that was all the rage in 2014), then the J Marc shoulder bag in black is the ultimate adult upgrade.
The J Marc shoulder bag in yellow
If you haven’t started dressing with dopamine, let this yellow shoulder bag transport you to a world of color. This bag is what I consider a “basic item” because it will go with everything, even if it is shiny.
The croc embossed snapshot
The croc embossed leather of this Snapshot bag enhances the whole look. Like the J Marc shoulder bag, this model can also be worn across the body with a removable shoulder strap.
The Glam Shot Mini Compact
The perfect gift doesn’t exist, oh wait, it does. This mini wallet comes in 10 different colors, so there’s bound to be a shade for every significant person in your life, or you know, buy one for yourself (you deserve it!).
