Editor’s Choice: This Faux Leather Tote Bag That Looks Expensive

“If you want an affordable bag that looks exceptionally sharp, look no further than this deceptively priced faux leather tote. It has enough room for everything I need, including my purse organizer and 15.6-inch MacBook Pro. There’s a single large interior pocket that’s just right for holding keys and a face mask so they’re always easy to grab without digging through my bag. The thick faux leather can take a beating — I’ve had mine over a year and it still looks new — which, combined with minimalist lines, it could easily pass for a high-end bag. Next, I’m considering another in embossed crocodile that feels luxurious and intimidating in equal measure.”

Another Editor Fave: A Slinky-Soft Turtleneck That Looks So Sleek

“I have this turtleneck from The Drop and wear it almost every single week in cool weather. Whether it’s layered underneath a sweater or vest or I’m rocking it solo with my favorite pair of trousers, I love how effortless this turtleneck is. And it’s so soft thanks to the modal blend. It’s the perfect thickness, too — streamlined enough to work for layering but not too thin to feel cheap. I generally find myself digging through my drawers to find it when it’s inevitably in the wash because I just wore it. Probably a good idea to stock up.” — Kate Miller, Bustle Editor
