GTL : Kate Hudson Brings Edge to a Classic Bag

The idea that opposites attract may not always work out in the dating realm, but it is definitely a favorite mantra for the fashion industry. A perfect example is Kate Hudson's roughing up a classic and lady-like Sophie Hulme bag by adding an Alexander McQueen skull scarf.

Adding a scarf is a simple trick for bringing new life to an old bag, or to simply change up the vibe. While smaller silk scarves work best, you can really use any scarf you'd like! Wrap it around the handles, tie it loosely to the edge, or stuff it part way into an outer pocket for a pop of color. And if you're in love with Hudson's specific mix, you're in luck - both the bag and the scarf are currently available to shop online. Even if you're not able to splurge on the real deal (the pair comes out to just under $1,000 together) you can recreate the look with this black bag from Dasein for $40 and scarf from Urban Outfitters for $14.

Alexander McQueen $115 // Sophie Hulme $804 // Dasien $40 // Urban Outfitters $14
