You have certainly seen influencers and models wearing the new trend of the moment: the belt bags! And while some of you may think “whaaat? They are so 90s!”, I can only think of the pink Gucci belt bag right now, dammit. But let’s talk about a slightly cheaper version, that is the belt bag that I recently purchased and that has a particularity: it can be converted into an evening shoulder bag! But let’s go by order.
The belt bag
I had already shown you this last purchase of mine in my post about the vacation in Tenerife (you can find it HERE). There I had shown you my shoulder bag with an evening cocktail dress, in a more elegant way. But by unplugging the chain and inserting the wide belt supplied, the bag becomes a very practical belt bag!
This type of versatile belt bag has two interesting features (and that will make it a must have)
Why buying a belt bag 2-in-1
- If you are not sure about buying a belt bag – because maybe you do not know if you will wear it so often – a versatile bag with the possibility of being shoulder-worn is the one for you!
- It’s perfect for the holidays! With just one choice you can have an evening bag and a day bag, a bag suitable for the most elegant suits and one suitable for the more sporty ones. Can’t be more comfortable than that!
I wore my Marc Jacobs bag in a modern and a little bit bohemian look, I would say. The flared pleated skirt with a high waist helps to mark the waist, and the belt bag stands out from it. As a top, I opted for a body in shades of pink that matches the side of the bag and my new wide brim hat by Lack of Colors. All this with the vivid touch of velvet shoes, which, yes, are still good because in Dublin there continues to be 12 degrees.
I love wide-brimmed hats and I really like the combination of hat + pleated skirt + belt bag, and you? I leave you to the look, let me know what you think! Have you already thought about buying yourself a belt bag?
