Yes, it’s here to stay. The less it looks like your typical tote, the more you’ll need the accessory. And we’re not talking kitsch old school Lulu Guinness lip-shaped clutches here. The unconventional bag shape is the latest 2019 bag trend and all about unusual forms and sometimes, inconvenient sizes. Thanks to the furore over Jacquemus’s ultra mini ‘bags’ that were large enough to carry a morning after pill and a tampon; it seems the fashion world is recovering by embracing all things weird and wonderful, all vessels great (looking) and small. Here’s the edit for the hottest and oddest bags shapes to wear now.
How to wear these strange and beautiful designs? For the everyday look, bags like these will elevate high waisted denim. The best part is that they double up seamlessly as chic little evening bags – so your favourite slip dress and low heeled sandals will look painfully good with them. For your summer getaway, they’ll go with every pared-down pastel and neutral which is the colour palette this year.
