Fashion Week Streetstyle: The Must-Have Bags

Trends aren’t just made on the runway. Meet those streetstyle-approved bags to carry you all through AW18…

We don’t know about you, but we just can’t get enough of Fashion Week streetstyle. From London to New York (via Paris, of course), its one of our favourite ways to gain inspiration for our wardrobes. This season it’s all about arm candy; these fashionistas know the power of a good bag! Get the lowdown ASAP on the most coveted bags from our favourite fashion capitals…

The London Bumbag

Streetstyle Bags - London

Stereotypically bumbags were reserved for tourists and 80’s fancy dress, however times are changing, as this Fashion Week it was given a well-deserved London makeover. Spotted around Soho in a range of exciting new designs, it was the must-have accessory for every blogger and editor alike. Not just fashionable, but practical to boot – simply throw it over a denim jacket and go. Who knew accessorising could be this effortless?

The New York Reptile Skin Bag

Streetstyle Bags - New York

Edgy and effortlessly hip, New Yorker’s have mastered the “oh, I’ve just thrown this on” look down to a fine art. While more polished than their London counterparts, they are still known for adding an unexpected touch – and what better than a little reptile skin to do the job? Whether its a snakeskin satchel or croc-effect basket bag, a touch of texture can make any outfit ooze cool. Nail that Brooklynite look and team metallic styles over classic tailoring.

The Paris Mini Bag

Streetstyle Bags - Paris

“Chic” may sum up Parisian streetstyle in one word, but our favourite French girls were about everything “petite” this Fashion Week. Think thigh-skimming hemlines, tiny shades and oh-so-chic mini bags. But don’t be fooled by their lack of size, as these bags are huge on fashion factor. Elegant wristlets and pocket-sized clutches were trending all across the style capital… and on our feeds. We think it’s time to say “bonjour” to your new season bag of choice.
