Saddle bags are among the more distinctive handbag designs. With their unique, curvy shape, they are always an eye-catching accessory and a hip alternative to conventional standbys. You could stick with the basics, but when you're ready to make a real statement, you'll turn to the trusty saddle for a bit of fashion inspiration. With gorgeous options emerging in many designer collections, there is bound to be something to suit every need and taste.

In the Saddle

The saddle bag occupies unique standing among its traditional handbag counterparts. The striking design immediately separates it from conventional favorites, making a bold, original statement. It's a curvy, asymmetric style that incorporates a short handle, and the unusual design is intrinsically eye-catching.

At the same time, saddle bags are among the more classic handbag designs. They have been around for decades and their fashionable design has stood the test of time. To be sure, almost every major designer line from Dior to Prada has carried saddle bags at one time or another. It's that rare breed of bag that is simultaneously classic and a bit unconventional.

For those looking to keep it simple, traditional colors and fabrics are always a good start. Black leather and suede are simple, elegant choices that allow the lines of the bag to really stand out. By contrast, there are a number of options that allow you to have a little fun with its bold design. Think rich textures and distinctive hardware and you'll make the most of this innovative design.
