Sleek and stylish, you’ll look hip rocking one of Spring’s biggest trends
While we’ve explored the fanny pack phenomenon quite a bit here on PurseBlog—and I myself have even gotten behind the trend—I haven’t quite pulled the trigger on actually purchasing a belt bag for my own personal collection. Obviously I’m obsessed with every single one of Gucci‘s fanny packs, at this point, they’re not exactly in my current budget, especially given my most recent acquisition. Additionally, when dipping into a trend that may or may not stick around, it’s better to get your feet wet at a more accessible price point; if you’re looking for an affordable way to do the belt bag trend, look no further than the The Marc Jacobs Hip Shot Bag.
The Hip Shot Bag is crafted in colorblocked crossgrain leather and is incredibly versatile, as it can be worn as a true belt bag, a clutch, or a crossbody bag with the interchangeable chain strap. The belt is also completely removable, so it can be worn by itself as well. Versatility can be very important when purchasing a bag, and this one definitely has versatility down pat. The bag features a top flap closure, as well as interior pockets. On the back exterior of the bag, there is a small slit pocket, which I’ve come to really like having on some of my bags. For daytime, it’s a great place to keep things you’ll reach for quickly, like your subway card or train tickets. For a going-out bag, it’s a convenient place to keep your credit card or some cash so that you don’t have to fully open up your bag. Overall dimensions of The Marc Jacobs Hip Shot Bag are 7″ L x 5.5″ W x 2″ D, and it retails for $350 via Marc Jacobs.
