As anyone who had to wear school uniforms is familiar with, bags and shoes were your critical chance to show off your style. Certain accessories trends would spread like wildfire, and one of those key pieces at my high school was the Longchamp Le Pliage Nylon Tote ($125). And I’m definitely not alone: Considering the fact that Kate Middleton carried one to her college graduation in 2005, it’s safe to say it was a true cult bag in the early 2000s. As a testament to its longevity, the classic bag is still popular to this day.
Cut to 2019, and new versions of the bag are having a major moment with celebrities. Jennifer Lopez was just spotted with an updated iteration, and we’re more than a little bit obsessed. She wore Longchamp Le Mini Pliage Cuir Snake Embossed Leather Top Handle Bag ($535), which has a higher price tag than the OG but features a very on-trend croc print. She styled it with a Sally LaPointe sweater and matching silk pants, along with Jimmy Choo heels. Scroll down to shop the bag and revisit the original version.
Next, Kate Middleton wore the $30 Zara item everyone will want.
