Granny-chic pocketbooks are back in style

Print Email
Pocketbooks, 1912.(Library of Congress)

This isn’t is your grandmother’s pocketbook. And, it’s totally trendy. We hear from Kveller that the pocketbook is back—like twins, it probably skips a generation—much to your Bubbe’s sartorial delight.

Other trends we anxiously await the return of: bloomers, sensible heels, skorts.

So make your granny proud and rock that pocketbook with pride. Just don’t forget to keep it snapped shut when you go out. And would it kill you to stand up straight?

Bubbe Chic: It’s All in the Pocketbook [Kveller]

“Bloomers” should be a Gallivanting Spatula word.
