“Your go-to jeans and T-shirt combination can suddenly become Parisian-inspired with the simple addition of a neckerchief and loafers. A sweater and skirt are quickly transformed into a look that Olivia Palermo would wear when a statement necklace and belt are involved. Accessories are key!” – Who What Wear
I couldn’t agree more with this philosophy! In addition to patches and a good neck scarf, Who What Wear suggests a belt bag as a way to effortlessly enhance a basic sweater and jeans look. Belt what, you say? OK, here me out…
Before you utter the “F” word (FANNYP**K), give this little hipster bag a second glance. After all, when designers from Gucci and Rebecca Minkoff to stores like Asos and Target are featuring this bag, you know it’s achieved a legitimate fashion makeover.
I’ve been searching for a while for just the right option to invest in so I was thrilled to come across this navy suede option from Chloe + Isabel. The pouch comes with a tasseled belt, which can be worn separately, and the bag can be worn several different ways as well (e.g., crossbody or as a mini backpack). The vintage-inspired pins are a pretty little detail, but can easily be removed for a different look.
Where are my lint removal sheets?? I love this sweater, but…
This belt bag is the perfect size for a wallet, keys and lip gloss when you can travel light or to keep the essentials at-hand when you’re juggling other things.
This cute little bag x belt combo is $55 and is available here (check under Rue Royale). The rest of my outfit details, like this tiered-sleeve sweater, and similar options are all below.
So, who has or plans to invest in a belt bag this season? Happy weekend, friends!
