Olivia Palermo Just Demonstrated the New Way to Carry Your Handbag

When inspiration is low, we can always count on Olivia Palermo to do something that feels so new and fresh that we have to try it immediately. For her latest #OOTD, Olivia was snapped on the streets of New York City over the weekend in a military-inspired look, with a yellow chain-strap sling bag acting as the standout piece. But it’s not just the fact that her honey hued bag stood out against the all-khaki look, it’s the way she was carrying it which forced us to double-take. OP wrapped the chain of her sling bag around her wrist, and carried it as a clutch—almost using it as a piece of jewellery to accessorise her outfit.

We have big plans for this styling trick. Spring racing season is around the corner (yes, really), and this is a genius way to give your look an original spin. Keep scrolling to peep Olivia’s handbag trick, then shop your own chain-strap sling.

We're styling this hard-case clutch with a head-to-toe neutral look so it stands out.

We can never go past the minimalist gold clasp.

Reason we love pebbled leather #437: It doesn't show up scratches.

This bag has mini compartments so you can keep all your things organised and separated.

It might be exxy, but it's so pretty, we're going to put it on display in our homes and carry it.
