I adore big structure bags with detachable straps. They are stylish yet versatile. They can hold all of our essentials from Ipad, documents to makeups and snacks and can also add some downtown chic to our looks.
But when it comes to color choices, the decision can be tough: This kind of bag in black and brown plus the rigid shape of the bag tends to make me look formal and heavy. Other bright colors are not so versatile. So white is my favorite choice: The clean color adds more feminine grace to the bag, and can instantly make us spring/summer-ready. That’s why I was so happy to see Rosie huntington Whiteley caring her white tote in NYC:
I appreciate the subtle balance between her girly-skirt-with-edgy-shoes outfit and her elegant white bag.
There is no surprise that this gorgeous bag comes from Jason Wu’s new collection. As a “new” designer who just launched his own fashion line six years ago, Jason Wu already has a great reputation in this industry.
Benefited from his multi-cultural living experience, Jason Wu successfully formed his own distinctive style by combining the high-fashion’s quality with fast fashion’s modern look; mixing the free spirit of American sportswear and the elegance of the old-world. What makes me respect him most is his pursuit of excellent workmanship and perfect details.

Besides the way Rosie Huntington Whiteley styled her white bag: with a patterned dress, I also love pairing white bag with white pieces, like these two looks of Victoria Beckham:
Or pair white bag with your everyday blue jeans. I love the contrast between the luxury bag and the tough, casual denim. Check out these two looks of Kylie Minogue and Eva Longoria (The white bag that Eva Longoria was carrying is our feature item: Jason Wu’s Jourdan ivory cross body tote):
