Black Leather Pushlock Satchel

Definition: A satchel is a type of top handle bag. Some satchels include an additional longer strap to be worn as a crossbody. They are commonly compared to old fashioned doctor’s bags, and are considered to have the same function as briefcases. However, satchels are typically made of soft leather. Satchels are useful for carrying books and other necessities, making them an ideal school and office accessory. They are used by both men and women.

What Should I Wear With Satchel Handbags?:

Satchels have a classy, sophisticated vibe to them. They work very well with pieces such as blazers, cardigans, or button down shirts layered under sweaters. To create a casually chic outfit, complete the look with a pair of your favorite jeans and boots.
