Nothing is certain anymore. The world is changing and you’ve got to keep up — even in a styling sense. If you thought shoulder bags were meant for the shoulder and handbags for the hand, think twice. According to New York and London Fashion Weeks, the way to go for wearing your bags in Fall/Winter 2016 is anything but the usual.
See Savoir Flair’s guide to the new-season ways of wearing your precious favorites.
Held At the Bottom
Ignore the handle function and hold your bag at the bottom: this will create an attractive new shape for buttery soft leather bags, while a decorative handle will prevail as a bracelet — just let it fall over your hand.
Folding your tote in half to hold it as a clutch is the chicest update you can make to your wardrobe right now.
Tied Shoulder Strap
Reimagine the shoulder strap as a handle. Tie it, fold it, or wrap it around your hand and you’re good to go with the coolest accessory styling trick for the season.
Open and Nonchalant
Achieve an effortless, nonchalant vibe by holding your bag by one handle only, or leaving it completely open.
Held At the Top
Ignore the handle once again and grab handbags and backpacks by the top for busy on-the-go vibes. Ain’t nobody got time for handles.
No rules over here. The point of this style is to keep your precious bag as close to your body as you possibly can.
