Fall 2014 Trend Watch: Bowling Handbags

Who says sensible can't be stylish? These trendsetters of Fall 2014 prove that functionality and elegance are a mix that can't be beaten. See how beautifully the two elements come together in the form of the classic bowler handbag.

This style of handbag may have started as sports equipment (take a look around the next time you’re at the bowling alley for example), but once fashion designers got their hands on this iconic shape, they turned the bowling bag into a timeless must-have that perfectly combines stylish form and useful function. The characteristic round shape and usually large size of the bowler gives you a great deal of space inside for toting your daily essentials, and the bowling handbag’s overall look pairs equally well with casual and dressy outfits.

Ready to bring both fashion and function to your fall wardrobe? Here are some stylish suggestions from MG Collection:
