When you're filing into Soldier Field to see the Bears play the San Diego Chargers for tonight's preseason game, your favorite oversized crossbody won't make it past the stadium guards. DNAInfo reports that the Bears (and the NFL in general) have updated their baggage allowance regulations to improve safety in the stadium throughout the season.
Off limits are large totes and backpacks. On limits—and on trend—are small clutches that are "approximately the size of a hand." When you're carrying your phone, lipstick, and a wallet, a small clutch, like this one, is really all you'll need. Guess we'll leave the foam finger at home.—Moira Lawler
