5 Belt Bags To Elevate Your Fall Style
2020 was offically the year of the belt bag and you don’t need to fork out thousands to own a luxe designer style. Here are our favourites proving that hands-free is ultra-chic.
A new generation of luxe belt bags is proving that hands-free can be ultra-chic and we’re very much into it. What was once solely reserved for backpackers and festival-goers, belt bags have made their way into high fashion, with everyone from Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Rosie Huntington Whitely being spotted with a bum bag slung around their waist. No matter if you plan on trekking a mountain (maybe leave your Chanel one at home for that), or stomping the city streets, a belt bag is the perfect year-round accessory, striking the perfect balance between effortlessly cool and playfully chic. From logo-emblazoned statement-making pieces to chic, minimalist styles that will feel every bit as classic as a top-handle tote, here are our favourite belt bags to add into your fall wardrobe now.
The belt bag has had an ultra-luxe makeover thanks to Chanel. Just like its classic cross-the-body styles, this waist bag comes in smooth quilted leather that’s embellished with the brand’s interlocking logo. Cheaper than the 2.55, it’s the perfect entry piece into Chanel.
Gucci’s bumbag was an instant sell-out success and it’s easy to see why. Reimagining the 80s bumbag and making it feel cool and relevant again, this polished version comes crafted in chevron-quilted leather that’s punctuated with the label's signature 'GG' plaque. Wear it high on the waist just like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Saint Laurent’s leather belt bag has emerged as a modern classic that any fashion girl with timeless style will want in her collection. True to the brand’s impeccable craftsmanship, each style has been crafted in Italy and comes adorned with gold-toned 'YSL' hardware. Wear it fastened over an oversized blazer for an effortlessly cool look.
4. Louis Vuitton
We look to Louis Vuitton for timeless pieces and its selection of waist bags are no exception. Spotted in the closets of fashion girls, including Kendall, a style in classic monogrammed leather is the perfect piece to add interest to a timeless trench coat come fall.
No print is as iconic as Burberry’s house check, which is all a part of the throwback appeal of its wide selection of bumbags. The classic check design feels polished enough to wear into the office, while one of its gold-toned quilted styles will instantly add sparkle to neutral suiting.
