I’m sure you guys have been seeing the new trend with bags, specially fanny packs worn as crossbody bags. These bags are the new it-accessory for both men and women. I must confess that I’m obsessed with them, specially if they are some sort of vintage find.
I was searching the closets of my apartment the other day and I found this old a-f cross body bag. I immediately had an outfit idea, why not?
I thought this bag would look good styled in a very streetstyle-chic way. I had in mind that wearing jeans, a simple two-tone striped shirt and slippers would be the perfect outfit to not overshadow the bag, but complement it and make the whole look a bit more current.
My advice for wearing these bags, specially when they are vintage and you have no idea what brand or designer they are, is wearing a simple outfit that makes it stand out. Let the bag be the statement piece, unless you want it to be a complement to a colorful, Mix N’ Match look. Oversized and neutral tones are always a safe option. It’s all about your style and what functionality you want the bag to take.
