The Cool-Girl Way to Style the Spring It Bag

We all know that great style is not limited to a certain clothing size. That’s where The 12ish Style by Katie Sturino comes in—a fashion blog dedicated to women sizes 12 to 18-ish. In her new column for Who What Wear, Katie will offer up her shopping tips, styling tricks, and outfit inspiration for women who aren’t a size two.

The Gucci accessory craze isn't new anymore, but it seems to be sticking around for another season, and I'm all for it. With the introduction of the belt bag into the trendosphere, we want to help you navigate the waters as you shift from fanny pack mindset to a chic, hands-free alternative. We've chosen a neutral color so that it goes with everything, ensuring you get the most bang for your buck.

Utilitarian Athleisure

Go handbag-free with this weekend-perfect look, whether you're running errands or for Sunday brunch! I wore the belt bag in its classic full-frontal style and paired it with a staple white hoodie and a skirt in my go-to color palette (red, white, and blue). In this look, you're wearing the belt bag in its most natural habitat—functional yet chic athleisure.

Casual Cool

This look combines three major trends—bodysuits, high-waisted jeans, and the belt bag—in the best way possible. Loop your belt bag through your favorite pair of denim and bam, you've successfully mastered that effortlessly put-together vibe. A nude heel adds a polished finish to the look.

Available in sizes XS to XL.

Available in sizes 33 to 45.

Fancy Fanny

Stars like Kaia Gerber and Kendall Jenner have made the belt bag their own by wearing it crossboyd! While wearing all black is usually a big no-no for me, it can really be dead chic and totally elegant. Add a black turtleneck and wide-leg pants with a pair of statement leopard heels and pink earrings. Toss a sweater over your shoulders à la your Palm Beach grandma and opt to wear the belt bag crossbody style for a night on the town.

Available in sizes EU33 to EU45.
