This fall, get ready to get all dolled up in chains — chain-strap handbags, that is. From clutches to satchels, the thin-to-thick metal details are adorning purses the world over. And as far as we’re concerned, there’s nothing more chic — or edgy — than taking a slim, classic shape and toughening it up with a little hardware. Gives a girl a little attitude, no?
