Belt bags are back! But do you know how to wear them to look stylish?

Do you remember the time when you were little and you had to wear belt bags? Especially during the school trips belt bags were a among those things you couldn’t forget at home. It was the place for your money, telephone numbers (of course written on the piece of paper, as you obviously didn’t have a phone) or anything that would be small and important. Well, I do remember! And it wasn’t a good look (then).

Now imagine that this fashion is back. However this time with a big bang! The biggest brands transformed this rather annoying but practical thing into stylish and highly fashionable accessory. The principle is the same. You still can’t fit much and you still wear it around your waist (or occasionally cross body). To be absolutely honest, I wasn’t excited when this trend came back. However I rather like it now. It can by chic, if you wear it right and choose the right design. But do you know how to choose the right one for you to look stylish and not like someone who fell asleep in the 8o’s and woke up now?  Well here are some rules to follow.

How to wear belt bags

  1. Choose a size that doesn’t look too big on you. You will wear this on your waist, so if you are petite, it can look like you are trying to wear a backpack on your belt (not a good look)
  2.  Try it on before the purchase. Everyone is a different shape and every style fits differently. Make sure the belt is a good length for you. I was just recently trying on the belt bags. However I couldn’t close it as it was simply too small for me.
  3. Choose a design that nicely “sit” on your waist. It should look effortless and comfortable. You don’t want to be disturbed by it when you are walking.
  4. It looks best when it is styled without additional belt (like on the trousers). Wear it over dresses, skirts, blazers. If you want to wear it with trousers, put on some longer top to cover the belt of the trousers and use the belt bag to create your waist.

Now that we have this sorted, let have a look at the best belt bags you can find right now.

White handbag is a perfect accessory for the summer

Once in while I am thinking why I actually don’t own one single properly white handbag. Not creme, not off white, just plain crisp white. It is usually around the time when summer is starting, so I have decided to dedicate and article about it. Always thinking I would love to get one, I started to do the research and look for a white handbag that would be perfect both with the summer dresses as well as more casual clothes. A bag I can wear during the summer days as well as hot summer nights.

And do you want to know why I never get one? Here is the thing. White handbag get dirty quite fast. I know that fashion is not always about practicality or comfort, but still. Also for some reason, they can look “cheap” if the design and quality is not absolutely perfect.  So the just the combination of the sky high price and the impracticality just puts me off a little. Also there is something 80’s about them, don’t you think? Kind of Miami Vice look. View Post

Floral bag. The expected “unexpected” trend? Every spring this trend never surprise and never fail to appear. Every spring we are like: “oh florals are back”. The thing is, they actually never left. It is every year, over and over again. SO I guess it is quite safe to say, that floral bags were, are and always will be with us. And because of that, I have decided to dedicate this article to this trend and the best handbags the designers have to offer. I am quite girly, but for some reason I can’t wear clothes with floral designs. They look a bit odd, but handbags? Yes please! They agree with me very well.

Anyway. As The spring officially started this week, I wanted to share with you the best handbags that feature flower design. It is always so nice when the start to feel like you don’t need to wear dark colours anymore and change into something more fresh and light. And the bags are more fun as well. View Post
