The Chloé Tess Bag: A Sizing Guide

From Gaby Aghion to Stella McCartney, Phoebe Philo to Clare Waight Keller, Maison Chloé’s past, present, and future shows a pattern of strong female leadership. Truth be told, the house wouldn’t stand so tall if it weren’t for the Chloé girl.


Her carefree spirit is now a more classic and refined version of her old self. She paraded with a slouchy Paddington bag in the noughties and befriended Betty, Edith, and Sally in the decade that followed. She will always cherish Faye, Drew, and Nile, but only now is she truly content. The Chloé girl finds herself tied to a more structured way of life — one where the beloved Tess bag takes center stage.


Adopting a variety of elements from the ever-popular It bags, the Chloé Tess bag pays homage to the brand’s French DNA. The shape emerged on the runway for fall 2018, and it has continued to flourish with a variety of new silhouettes. 


From the Tess Hobo bag to the chain cross-body, this timeless injection of bohemia fits flawlessly into any Chloé wardrobe. Matching everything from prairie-style maxi dresses to checked trench coats, the bag is available in a range of colorways and a choice of sizes. 


Designed with practicality in mind, the Tess Day Bag is Chloé’s latest addition to the Tess family, characterized by its roomier size and multiple pockets. It’s certainly worth it — now read our Chloé Tess bag review with Fashion Creative, Onyi Moss to discover which size and style best suits you.
