Oh-So-Chic Belt Bags (and Why We Love Them)
As much as we love our top-handle bags and clutches, there are certainly moments when we’d prefer to go hands-free- and that’s where belt bags enter the picture. Luxuriously-crafted belt bags are the decidedly grown-up equivalent of the vacation fanny packs of our youth: all of the practical functionality, plus style.
And there are so many gorgeous versions to choose from… a sleek, belt bag by Christian Dior, streamlined, quilted perfection by Chanel, Gucci’s chevron matelassé GG Marmont with gold interlocking G’s, in addition to other options from these designers, and dozens of stylish belt bag models by Chloe, MCM, Fendi, YSL and many more.
They may be referred to as belt bags and waist bags, but there’s another way to go hands-free. Did you know you can also wear belt bags across your body? The practicality quotient is the same, but it offers a great way to get a lot more styling mileage out of a single accessory (or a closet full of them!).
