Street style handbag trend

You’ve been wearing your handbag wrong

24 February 2016

Cool-girl brand Proenza Schouler, and street style muses alike, are clutching at setting a new handbag trend this Fashion Week season.

Repeat after me: ‘Thou shalt not wear thy bag on one’s forearm or shoulder, nor carry it in one’s hand.’

Ever since influential New York fashion house Proenza Schouler styled their catwalk models in a never-before-seen way at last week’s Fall ’16 NYFW show, wearing your shoulder bag – particularly one with a short strap – across your body and tucking it under your armpit is so ‘in’.

Just watch out for deodorant stains and potential leather chafing, okay?

The verdict: Comfortable? Probably not. Cool? Definitely.
