If there’s one thing I’ve learned about fashion, it’s the fact that trends always come back around. Which is why it’s so fun to shop in your mom’s or grandmother’s closet – or on Fashionphile, the next best thing! This specialty site is brimming with rare and well-kept vintage luxury bags, as well as plenty…
The leather crossbody bag that I chose to write about today feels really special. If you’re looking for a basic handbag which is really cool and beautifull, this one can hook you up. The style I have seen so far are absolutely gorgeous, but the brown one pictured here is my favorite. Take a moment and discover the color you like!
Saddle bags have been making a comeback lately and, this bag does this style very, very well! Inspired by vintage cartridge bags this bag can be worn on the shoulder or as a crossbody. I love the beautiful, unlined leather and rich brown color. What really makes this piece stand out though is the classic look.
I absolutely love the brown color! This bag would be perfect for casual fall days when you don’t need to carry a lot of stuff with you. I can definitely picture it with a great outfit. However, I think this bag would go with a lot of things, including jeans and a simple T-shirt.
One of my favorite things about covering bags is that I get to discover new and emerging bags and purses in the handbag world. Finding perfect bag for fall 2018 is easy. I get especially excited when I skew indie new bags. These days, is it really necessary to spend a pretty penny on a luxury bag? A slew of indie entrants are popping up to collectively answer us with a no!
These bags are stunning in its simplicity, and I’ve got keen eyes on this bag. Elegantly understated, this bag is a cross body with a front side in glossy croc-like finishing that really makes it standout. While it’s not real, it takes a skilled leather technician to treat calf leather and make it look both refined and luxe, and by the looks of it, this bag perfectly embodies both.
The bag has inside pockets for your phone, keys, credit cards. I love the very idea of a contained, clean and classic look. It comes with a adjustable strap, which I love shoulder bags like this.
With Fall in full view, there’s so many pretty colors to choose from, including Black, Gold, Pink, and Silver. Designed with a minimal approach, it would pair wonderfully with a lush coat to press against.
Take a closer look at the women bag styles which continually sell out
While many longtime, well-established bag styles have been upping the ante when it comes to embellishments and designs on bags, many of the newer brands breaking into the bag market are busy focusing on simple, quality designs, and it’s paying off. While I love to see something quirky from a designer brand, often what I want for myself is a bag that is classic and high-quality. And now we have a better look at some of the bags (check out all the bags here).
Small Fashion Women Bags with New 2018 Design Leather and Chains
The first bag I want to focus on is the beautiful Small Fashion Women Bags with New 2018 Design Leather and Chains. Everything about this bag screams new, with its leather, lack of branding, and overall everyday appeal. This handbag is perfect for a evening out woman, a party, special occasion, a mom, or anyone in between.
This purse is an under-appreciated handbag because typically their usability and functionality outweighs any sort of stand-out style, but sometimes that is precisely what you need. This bag can easily become your go-to bag that is easy to fling over your shoulder and carry essential everyday items.
Yes, you read that right. The hands-free bag that for years has signaled an out-of-place tacky tourist is now all over runways and slung around the hips of some of the world’s most stylish people. The fanny pack—or “belt bag”, as it’s been chicly rebranded—has slowly but surely won over the hearts of fashion lovers everywhere.
As far as purses go, belt bags are quite convenient. They let you go completely hands-free, making it perfect for music festivals, sporting events, and other activities where you’re up and about. And while the most popular way to wear it is around the waist or hips, you can style it a number of different ways, as Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid prove:

No matter how you wear a belt bag, I urge you to give this trend a chance!
Check out a few of my favorite ones:
Keep it sleek and minimal with Theory’s classic belt bag in black leather. The thin strap is great and not too overbearing, while the rectangular shape is a chic update on the usual fanny pack style.
There’s nothing tacky about this luxe Stalvey belt bag made of bright red alligator skin. Featuring gold hardware and just big enough to fit all the essentials, this purse is 100% splurge-worthy. Plus, the adjustable strap allows you to wear it both as a belt bag and as a shoulder bag, making it two times more versatile.
Rachel Comey’s belt bag is perfect for when you just need a few essentials—phone, keys, wallet, and maybe a lipstick or two. Crafted in white crocodile-embossed leather, the texture is enough to make a huge statement.
If you’re in need of a purse with unique, eye-catching details, this Prada belt bag is perfect for you! Featuring an ornate trunk closure and luxurious burgundy velvet, this bag will stun with any autumnal ensemble. It comes with a removable belt strap and a removable chain shoulder strap, allowing you to wear it either as a belt bag or as a shoulder bag depending on the occasion.
When one purse isn’t enough, go for this 3 in 1 belt style from Vere Verto, in collaboration with Sissy Sainte-Marie. Featuring rectangular, square, and circle pouches, you can keep all your items organized. And if you don’t feel like wearing all three shapes at once, you can slide them off and wear one at a time, or use them sans belt as clutches.
Talk about pretty in pink! Miu Miu’s girly style is perfect for rocking the belt bag trend with plenty of femininity. In ever-popular millennial pink and decorated with a pearl and crystal-adorned closure, wear this purse as either a belt bag or a shoulder bag.
It’s never too early to start prepping for festival season! MM6 Maison Margiela’s brilliant fuchsia purse will pack a bright statement at Coachella or Governor’s Ball. It’s also big enough to fit all your essentials, allowing you to go hands-free without sacrificing storage space in your bag.
Gucci is in part to thank (or blame, depending on your feelings on the trend) for the belt bag resurgence, and they have dozens of covetable styles available. Their maroon velvet Marmont style, however, is the one to wear this fall. Jewel tones are always well-suited for autumn, as is velvet, and the chevron texturing is a great added touch.
