Who says something has to be feminine to be pretty? Not me, that's for sure. In fact, I've always been a big fan of rough materials such as leather, denim, rope, canvas... especially when it comes to accessories. Not only are do they look great for everyday, but are durable for the years to come. In any case, I just wanted to shed light on a brand I think is going in a great direction by using top quality materials to make awesome versatile bags.
Amazing Accessories by JUD, Tel aviv
If you're a traveler or often find yourself worn out from carrying so much stuff in your purse, these bags by JUD are a great way to share some of the weight with your male companion. Come on, you know exactly what I'm talking about. When you're out on a day trip and he asks you to carry his external charger, then the camera, and oh, could you take the keys too? That stuff adds up! Well, now you can just quick draw the strings and tell your guy to carry it himself :)
Upcycled + unisex denim convertible all purpose bag
If you want more bang for your buck, the JUD upcycled denim bag is definitely the way to go. Handmade from #vegan upcycled denim, 100% cotton lining, and cotton rope, this versatile bag can be used as a tote bag or a drawstring backpack. At approximately 46cm x 34cm x 5cm (18" x 13.4" x 2"), this bag to pack is just the right size to fit all your needs for the day.
I love this option for casual school days because it's so light weight and again, in a great size. Simply pop in your laptop, tablet, or notebooks and you're good to go. To take this denim bag from day to night, simply pair with a chic black dress or a dressed up pair of skinnies.

Convertible leather upgrade unisex bag
If you're schedule is anything like mine then you know all about the hassle of changing purses between work, going out, walking the dog, and the occasional weekend trip. Whenever I change my purse I always, always forget something. I know, #firstworldproblems, but seriously guys... it's super annoying to go out only to discover you left your credit card in the other purse and so you're limited to like $10 in cash and now you have to walk home at 2am. True story.
I recommend this amazing unisex bag for school, work, travel, fun, walking the dog, and basically anything else! The Italian quality leather is available in a wide array of colors including black, forest green, burgundy red, and white. Unlike the denim bag I mentioned before, this leather twin is a bit taller at 46cm x 34cm x 5cm (18" x 13.4" x 2"), making it great for anyone carrying a laptop of up to 15".
It's minimal but stylish, great to share with your boyfriend when you're tired of lugging it around, and practical! Honestly, why wouldn't you buy this bag?

Handy little everywhere bag, again in unisex
Honestly, the more I look into this brand, the more I love it. There's simply nothing better than a piece of fashion that both looks good and works well enough to transition from day to night, work to play. This little guy is amazing for exactly that reason. I imagine myself wearing this bag in the black option, together with a cool a-line dress or even t-shirt dress. On a guy, I'd love to see this worn as a backpack (as seen below).
It's a cross body, it's a backpack, it's a clutch, fanny pack, and shoulder bag all in one. If you're a traveler, this one is definitely for you. Measuring in at 21cm x 27cm (8.3" x 10.6") with shoulder straps 180cm (71") at maximum, this limited edition piece is the perfect place to store your iPad, sketchbook, and other essentials. Like everything else by JUD, this bag comes in several colors and textures such as crocodile, python, black snake, and other natural selections.

Although the price point may seem a bit high for young ladies like myself, you have to keep in mind that you're paying for not just quality products, but unique hand made products. It's the difference buying some generic Forever21 bag that'll last a month or two of heavy wear versus the experience of a piece you can cherish for years to come.
