This past weekend, I polled three fashion editors to get their thoughts on belt bags: sticking around for another season, exiting for the fall, or just indifferent? Chrissy Ford of Harper’s Bazaar gave me the answer of my dreams, assuring me that they’ll “still be cool for fall”. Amelia Diamond of Man Repeller gave me a cost-friendly option, noting that you can “find cool ones on eBay” (and while I’d like to take her advice, I’m sure I’ll spend my next paycheck on this Chanel one). Allie Michler of Vogue told me to “unbuckle the belt” :(, opting for chain bags for fall. And when I didn’t know what a chain bag was, Elizabeth Tamkin of Man Repeller, who I’ve dubbed as the ‘Accessory Know It All’, informed me that a chain bag is simply “a bag with a chain strap”.
With this new chain bag knowledge, I hit the web, promptly finding a slew of celebs with said bag, like this photo of Emily Ratajkowski. However, I’m still loyal to my belt bag hands-free life, so I’ve rounded up 10 for fall that I’m seriously considering.
