The belt bag has officially shed its slightly (okay very) daggy 80s roots and re-imagined itself as a bonafide style strend. I’ve spoken about this trend before but now it has really gathered momentum and is being seen everywhere from Paris Fashion Week to fashion blogger feeds everywhere. There’s something quite Carrie Bradshaw-esque about the way the trend is being worn now and if it hasn’t yet, I’m betting it will grow on you. Consider the belt bag the easy way to carry all your essentials while still remaining hands-free and simultaneously belting up a look all at the same time. If you want, you could even worn it thrown over your shoulder like I’ve seen a few street style regulars wear. Big, small, dainty or sporty, this is one bag that can definitely cater to all sorts of tastes and budgets. Feel free to get inspired by a few looks below before jumping into this trend and checking out a few of my fave belt bag picks below.
