Trend How-To: Shoulder Bags

The latest handbag trend for spring shows that it’s all about practicality. It seems that the top bloggers, celebs and trendsetters just want something they can quickly throw over their shoulder which gives them easy access to their essentials, whilst not comprising on style, of course.

Shoulder bags certainly aren’t a new invention in fashion, but with all the chaos of fashion week, they seem like the obvious choice, as they can still house all the much needed items like cameras, invites and phones, but you don’t have to worry about them getting in the way or taking the attention away from the rest of your outfit.

The best thing about the shoulder bag is you can get them pretty much everywhere and they are suitable for all occasions. Plus, they look great styled with anything in your wardrobe. It seems that smaller styles that hang around the hip are the most popular this season. Well-known bloggers like Jessica Stein from Tuula and Fashion Toast’s Rumi Neely have been seen with the coveted Proenza Schouler PS11 in recent weeks, but we can’t all afford to fork out that kind of cash, so try more reasonably priced Australian brands like Sportsgirl and Witchery.

Don’t be afraid to recycle your old shoulder bags, that’s the best part about trends, they always resurface. Check out our gallery of celebrities using shoulder bags to get some ideas.
