In our pursuit of fewer, better things, we’re always looking for ways to reinvent the items we already own. Rachel’s ethos is the same, carefully choosing items for each edition of the Box of Style with longevity and versatility in mind. One robust example of this approach is the Spring Edition’s Tribe Alive clutch. Made from real leather and featuring a fastened top flap, the pouch is large enough to fit any model of iPhone (yes, even that new big one), along with your wallet, keys, and lipstick. Here, three ways to style it this season.
Pair with: Totes, polished workwear separates and heeled loafers
Fresh Shoulder Bag
Wrap your Spring Edition Chan Luu Silk Scarf into a long strip, open the clutch, and place the midpoint of the scarf under the top flap. This trick is particularly handy when you need to be handsfree in a pinch.
Pair with: Jeans and tees, sleek sunglasses and mules
Fashion-Forward Belt Bag
Using the same nifty scarf trick, this time affix the pouch at your hip and tie the remaining fabric around your waist. The result is perfect for cinching a caftan when heading from the beach to cocktails.
Pair with: Maxi-dresses, statement earrings, and barely-there sandals
