A purse is just a purse, except when it isn't—and the Ellington Leather Belmont Satchel ($200) definitely isn't. Because it's really the only bag you'll need all summer, it demands full focused attention. So do we have your attention? The Belmont is totally capable of carrying everything you need for a day out (two lined pockets help) while still being small enough that doing so won't feel like one-armed torture. And with a gorgeous glazed Italian leather finish in six shades (three punchy, three neutral), there's definitely a satchel to fit your summer.
