Would You Wear This Daring Bag Trend?
We love testing out the weirdest, most whimsical and out-there trends of the moment. We saw fanny packs come sprinting back into the fashion spotlight last year, confirming that "dad" style and anything with a loose tie to '90s nostalgia is going nowhere. But while the sporty bag achieved major popularity, it's the fanny pack's sleeker cousin we're looking at: the belt bag. Daring, yes. Doable? Debateable. If you're still hesitant about trying out belt bags for yourself, let these stylish women teach you a lesson in making the "out-there" bag so cool and wearable.
This stylish Norwegian makes a strong case for a polished belt bag, wearing hers over her trench coat.
Of course, the reigning queen of cool style can make an artful belt bag the statement piece of her award show look. Solange styled the rest of her look around the eclectic bag shape, opting for a pared-back black jumpsuit and equally standout earrings.

And now, the Italian-girl way to wear a belt bag, which involves luxurious pieces like a silk robe and pretty flats.
We can't get enough of this super-sleek look and double wraparound belt bag.
Double up on bags—whoever said one was enough never witnessed this chic look.
Man Repellers are all going crazy over Leandra's use of mixed prints and traditionally clashing colors. As usual, the unexpected works on her.
A business casual look with a belt bag? You're not alone if you thought the previous sentence was an oxymoron. Yet this look is all the proof we need that elevated belt bags (this one is a previous season Loewe style) can be office-approved, too.
An updated suit will surely balance out the bag's forward style. But no matter how you plan to try out this daring bag trend, keeping it consistent with your own personal style will help it all seem wearable.
