There’s a new accessory trend in town, and it’s coming in with a bang. Led by Fendi (at least among the street style set) but embraced by brands across the spectrum, the multi-pouch, utility-inspired belt bag is gaining steam for spring, and if I had to make an educated guess, I would say it’s going to be a major hit among the style setters of NYC, in addition to the rest of the fashion world, very soon.
Why New York, you may wonder? Well, if there’s one thing I’ve learned through observation since moving here, it’s that whenever there’s a cross between fashion and function, the women of the Big Apple are all over it. Since utility is literally in the name of this trend, I can only imagine it’s going to pick up very quickly here on the East Coast—starting with me, perhaps? To see how street style stars already wore the trend at fashion week and then, of course, to shop my favorite utility-inspired belt bags, just keep scrolling.
