Bags can be covetable, impractical, practical, collectors’ items, incredible gifts and prized possessions. What a bag should never be, is an inconvenience. On a summer vacation, even the most practical of bags can become impractical, bouncing against you as you wonder cobbled streets on a city break, or ruining your carefully curated beach look by carrying something cumbersome. The answer to your accessorising woes? A belt bag.
Convenience is king in summer (sweating under a backpack simply won’t do) and there are many designs to choose from. Seemingly, every shape, colour and style exist, so even the fussiest of shoppers can find a perfect match. From Burberry’s reinvented monogram to Dsquared2’s Camouflage: every major brand is tackling the trend. Whether an Alexander Wang white leather number suits your style or a Valentino monogram will help you get festival-ready we hope that you’ll consider that a belt bag might be a stylish alternative to your favourite cross-body.
