Depending on your preference, what I’m about to say might come as a shock: I’m in love with nylon bags, just as much (or maybe even a little more) than leather. Hey, don’t judge me just yet.
If done right, I am a firm believer that a nylon bag can be just as stylish as a leather counterpart. Not only that, the material is infinitely more durable and simple to clean. Depending on the style, nylon bags can fit much more than other purses, and they’re also incredibly easy to maneuver. (We all know the feeling of wrestling with a stiff leather bag just to get our wallet out.) Another important factor: for obvious reasons (i.e. no leather), they’re usually more affordable.
To me, the worst thing about buying a bag is watching it sit on a shelf for who knows how long because of silly (?) reasons like color transfer or the risk of a rainstorm, which in turn would result in unfortunate watermarks all over your precious Fendi or Chanel. (As someone who lives in Miami, I regretfully report that this has happened to me one too many times.) Yep, no need to worry when you’re grabbing your tried and true nylon bag for a night on the town. (Even Megs has discussed her love for nylon!)
If you’re wondering whether or not a nylon bag has the potential to be stylish enough for a fancy dinner or a professional event, allow me give you a crash course in today’s chicest bags that’ll make you wonder why you ever bought leather. (Ok… maybe that’s a stretch, but let’s just go with it.) Either way, I think it’s a must to have at least one nylon bag in your collection.
Behold, my favorite nylon bags at the moment. I’ve got my eye on a few of the Pradas. (In my opinion, they’re the best nylon bag-maker on the market right now.) What’s your opinion on Nylon? If you were in the market for one, which one would you choose? I’d love to know!
