For a relaxed yet elevated look.

Remember that bag Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would carry around during their ‘boho chic’ era? It’s the same kind that Paris Hilton would strut around in, and it eventually became the bag du jour in the early noughties. Yep, we’re talking about the hobo bag! Marked by its slouchy shape and looped handle, this roomy, relaxed design continues to be a go-to style with revivals released every now and then–Bottega Veneta’s Jodie, Loewe’s Puzzle, Gucci’s Jackie, to name a few. With more contemporary renditions cropping up–think futuristic purses to streetwear pieces–it’s safe to say the hobo bag won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.

Here, 10 pieces you can shop to cop a touch of casual chic now:
