    We’re suckers for a classic '60s throwback. The grace and glamour that defined the decade makes us all a little jealous we were never Jackie O's shopping buddy. But, nowadays, pulling off those styles without looking like Grandma’s mothball-scented closet exploded all over us is trickier than it seems.

    Max Mara’s fall '13 J Bag is the perfect ode to this beloved era, but with a 21st-century twist. Materials such as calfskin and ostrich radiate vintage sophistication without looking dated. This means we'll be able to successfully reach that level of class likened best to our favorite '60s icon whether we're walking to work, sipping on cocktails, or sipping on cocktails while at work — which, um, we can't really condone.

    The bag ranges from $1,390 to $1,590 and will be sold in Max Mara stores and online at Halsbrook starting in August. Click through to find the next item on top of your fall wish list.
