If you are hoping to achieve the perfect look this fall, then you will need just the right accessories to match your cute cardigans and stylish skirts. Jo Handbags has created the ideal collection of timeless and sophisticated bags and accessories to add to your wardrobe. The company, started in 2010 by Delia Kosowicz, Dee Arguelles and Wendi VanHorn, has been making a name for itself by focusing on simple and stylish trends that will stand the test of time. The company has stated that in the design process, one question is always asked: “Will this still be something we want to wear in 10 years?” The classic styles mixed with the broad background among the founders, having previously worked in advertising, interior design, and fashion design, make this brand popular within the fashion industry. Recently, Jo Handbags has been featured in Elle Magazine, Harpers Bazaar, and as well as many other highly established fashion publications. The brand’s name is expanding and its popularity seems to be increasing over time.

Jo Handbags focuses on using neutral tones as the basis for its designs, making use of vintage leathers and subtle accents to keep the classic and simple feel throughout the collections. The most recent collection uses a mix of cool and neutral colors for this season’s looks. Just like many of the Jo Handbags pieces, this collection’s designs use leather and brass accents to create a classic and vintage feel. In this collection there are a few stand out pieces that would make excellent additions to your every day looks. The Dakota Clutch/ Wallet Ocean has been a highly desired item among customers. The diverse piece, working as both a wallet and a clutch, features the brand’s classic leather fabric and brass details.
