If there’s one thing we can count on, it’s that fashion weeks are the perfect place to spot the next big trend before everyone else. Lately, one major trend we’ve seen circulating among some of the most fashionable bloggers and editors isn’t in what they’re wearing, but how they’re wearing it.

While this may seem like an odd choice at first, this way of wearing bags is undoubtedly catching on. Because of the shorter straps, when worn diagonally, the usual handbag looks much shorter, rising up higher on the body than they usually would. Not only does this seem practical, as cross-body bags free up both hands, but also has a unique look to it.
