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 again. According to Fall/Winter 2016 trends, the way to go for carrying your bags is anything but the expected. Scroll through for Savoir Flair’s quick and easy guide to the new-season ways of carrying your everyday 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 styling habits right now.
Tied Shoulder Strap
Reimagine the shoulder strap as a handle. Tie it, fold it, or wrap it around your wrist, and you’re good to go with the coolest accessory styling trick for the season.
Open and Nonchalant
Exude effortless, nonchalant vibes by holding your bag by one handle only or leaving it completely open.
Held At the Top
Ignore the handle once again, grabbing handbags and backpacks by the top for busy, on-the-go vibes. Ain’t nobody got time for handles.
There are no rules when it comes to this trick – the point is to keep your precious bag as close to your body as you possibly can.
