Do you ever wonder who decides what the trends are going to be? I mean, how do multiple designers all know that it is the season of wide leg pants or crop tops or, for purposes of this post, ring bags? Rumor is that there is a book that they all get, but I have no idea if that’s true or who writes it. Can you imagine being the person/people who write that bible? I like to imagine that they get together and drink lots of wine then throw ridiculous ideas out at one another and whatever gets the hardest laugh wins! “Furry sandals!”
Anyway, this all leads me to this micro-trend known as the ring bag which is EVERYWHERE this year. The metal ring is such a fun, fresh update to handbags – it reminds me of a choker – and IMO this is a trend to save on. Instead of splurging on the Chloe version (which kudos to you if you do), I’m all about getting this look for less with chic options like this one which I personally own ($34.99) or this one ($24.99) from WhoWhatWear x Target or this Mango one ($59.99) or this TOPSHOP option ($45). SO many good ones:
Who else is into this trend and who do you think came up with it?
