Succession is only two episodes into its fourth season, but it's already created an internet sensation thanks to Tom's hilarious roast of Greg's new girlfriend and her "ludicrously capacious" tote bag. The conversation sparked a thousand memes and inspired think pieces about what "quiet luxury" means to the uber-rich.

"I've heard you made an enormous faux pas," Tom told Greg in episode one. "Everyone's laughing up their sleeves about your date. Why? Because she's brought a ludicrously capacious bag. What's even in there, huh? Flat shoes for the subway? Her lunch pail? I mean, Greg, it's monstrous. It's gargantuan." 

This instantly-iconic quote brings me to Elsa Hosk's newest outfit because she's certainly not afraid to tote around a monstrous bag and make it look impeccably chic, Tom be damned. After all, context is important here—you might not want to schlep a large bag around a formal evening party, but all bets are off when it comes to practical summer beach totes if you ask me. Scroll down to see how Elsa Hosk wears the capacious bag trend everyone's talking about right now.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
