You don’t actually have to own a horse in order to get the newest handbag silhouette: a saddlebag! Usually worn as a cross-body shoulder bag, they come in shades of tan and brown for the most authentic look. They are mid-size, easy entry one compartment bags with a simple front flap closure, making finding things in your bag a breeze.

Saddlebags have no season. Although they are somewhat understated with little or no embellishments, they have universal year-round appeal.
Shoulder straps can usually be adjusted to be long or short. Saddlebags are the perfect versatile everyday bag for anyone.
