In this instance, size doesn't matter — here's how you should be wearing your bag stat

We've witnessed many a bag trend come and go over the years. Heck, we're still running on overdrive when it comes to bag charms and badges as we speak. Not to mention, the wave of high brow market totes by the genius that is Demna that has the best of us clamouring for a Balenciaga shopper. Minis, even minier minis, lipstick crossbodies, phone slings... there's nothing we haven't seen. But this season, the runways have proven that the latest bag trend is simply down to the way you wear it.  

Instead of toting or slinging your arm candy, brands such as Marni, Stella McCartney, DKNY and Moncler Gamme Rouge have sent out bags belted and strapped around the waist. Wait — we know what you're thinking: Isn't that pretty much a fanny pack only worn by fresh-off-the-boat-tourists? Riffing off that very idea of uncompromised utility, see how the fashion faux pas has transformed into this season's winning style statement; simply by being rendered in multiples or attached to body harnesses to give an outfit that extra kick — ensuring that your stylish rep stays intact even if you choose to go hands-free.
