As we can see by now, pochettes are usually synonymous with in-your-face monograms, and tons of luxe embellishments and fabrics. That’s exactly what makes 2000s-era fashion so covetable now, and why we can’t stop watching all those “Friends” and “Lizzie McGuire” reruns. That being said, we still love our trendy, super-sleek neutrals, and our go-to uniform still consists of everyday straight-leg jeans, white sneakers, and a chic, simple top. If you prefer to keep your pochette understated, then we suggest going for the Saint Laurent Le 5 à 7 Smooth Leather Hobo Bag in Black ($1,690). The shape is the perfect crescent moon to place right under your arm, giving us total ’90s and 2000s vibes. Meanwhile, the Italian leather is super-luxe, and the bronze YSL hook gives it the tiniest dose of monogram-mania. We truly love the look of this bag, and are equally obsessed with it in the creamy “blanc vintage” shade.
Last but not least, we have Prada’s own revamping of a past classic: the Re-Nylon Re-Edition 2000 Mini-Bag in White ($895). This bag features a minimal shape in durable, functional nylon that can easily be wiped clean if needed, which we love. Made of recycled, purified plastic trash from oceans, the bag features a smooth zipper closure, woven handles, and the cutest hanging Prada tag. While we love this snow white hue that pairs with everything, we also adore this bag in Alabaster Pink and the new neutral, cornflower blue.
