The Best Designer Bags From The K-drama It’s Okay Not To Be Okay
The popular Netflix K-drama ‘It’s Okay To Not Be Okay’ has been causing waves on the internet as the new It-show to watch. Asides from the realistic storytelling, twisting plot lines and stellar acting credits, the show’s closets is giving us a lot of lust after. In particular, Xu Ruizhi’s style has caught the internet’s attention, especially when it comes to her taste in luxury handbags. From Alexander McQueen to Dior and Jimmy Choo, no outfit is complete without a statement-making tote
If like us, you’ve found yourself turning to Google after each episode, we’ve listed below our favourite Xu Ruizhi looks and the handbags to go with them.
Alexander McQueen The Story
Rattan bags have had quite a moment this year and Xu Ruizhi proves that this bag is so much more than just a holiday accessory. Case in point: Alexander McQueen’s The Story. Perfect for any season, this rattan tote gets a makeover via a more structured square aesthetic, leather trims and gold-toned detailing.
Dior Saddle Bag
One of the most iconic bags of the noughties, the Dior Saddle, remains one of the most sought-after bag styles of 2020. When it comes to It-bags, this matte-black style is as about as timeless as they come, snap it up now.
Chloé C Vanity Bag
We love a matchy-matchy moment and Xu Ruizhi’s chiffon green skirt and matching Chloé vanity bag was one of our favourite looks of the season. No matter what outfit you pair it with, a structured bag instantly makes everything just a bit more dressed up. Despite its petite shape, this handbag will easily hold all of the essentials with a built-in coin purse, a card slot and a leather strap for storing glasses.
Givenchy Two-Toned Small GV3 Bag
This minimalist style from Givenchy is set to become a new cult classic. Note the accordion sides, chain-link strap and double G clasp. We think it’s the perfect accompaniment to evening looks; wear it with a silk shirt, midi skirt and flat sandals for an effortless trans-seasonal style.
Jimmy Choo Bon Bon Bag
We didn’t believe in love at first sight - until we spotted this exquisite top-handle bag from Jimmy Choo. In a slouchy bucket shape that still has some structure, the Bon Bon bag is polished enough for any kind of event (note the diamante detailing), but relaxed enough to wear on the weekends too.
Tod’s Timeless Bag
Sometimes everything you need to know about a bag lies within its name, such is the case with Tod’s Timeless tote. Crafted after vintage styles, it comes with a top handle, gold-toned detailing and a structured shape. Carry it either by the top handle or cross-body strap.
Valextra Iside bag
In this scene, Xu Ruizhi is wearing the Korean designer brand Avouavou, with Jimmy Choo open-toe sandals and a mini handbag from another Korean brand
Valextra. Mini bags are the nineties accessory making a major comeback and this style from Valextra is an elegant take on the trend. The timeless light-grey leather will mean you’ll bring it back out year after year.
