An essential in every 90s fashion starter kit – the humble shoulder bag has returned as a must-have this season.
I t’s no secret that fashion is cyclical – with trends of bygone years typically reappearing on catwalks and in our lives, ever so often. With Prada’s recently re-issued ‘Nylon’ shoulder bag, along with the Dior ‘Saddle’ and Fendi ‘Baguette’ revivals – and most recently Gucci’s iconic ‘Jackie’, all still creating waves, there’s no better time than the present to sift through your closet (or your mum’s) to find a vintage shoulder handbag.
Yep, you read that right: We’re putting away our oversized holdalls and totes for smaller-sized purses that can be tucked safely under the arm and worn close to the body with a short shoulder strap or even in a longer style, thanks to adjustable straps that can be fastened. Unlike the Instagram-friendly, teeny-tiny mini bag, this 90s staple can actually hold all your essentials, while allowing you to go hands-free.
