The Belt Bag

Every so often I revisit the belt bag, but never find one that I’d wear — until now. These by The Row and Jil Sander are good-looking, and the Jil Sander looks great as a shoulder bag, too. While working on this post up popped this Gabriela Hearst knit dress (comes in black as well), and Habitually Chic just posted a roundup of the best fall sneakers — all told, a great la rentrée aka transition-to-fall outfit.

  • Hi! I love the tan sneaker, can you say who makes it? Thanks!

  • Maison Margiela (I just bought them) and they are in the Habitually Chic post.

  • It’s hard to believe we’re already looking at the reentry. I just bought a pair of leather sneakers for fall—and have been seeing belt bags all over the city. The structure and proportions on The Row’s bag are nice.

  • That dress is divine.

  • Curiously, belt bags appeal to me as an idea, but when I acquire one or the other (and there have been several throughout the years), I always find an excuse to not wear them. It is either the wrong outfit, the wrong occasion, or I just need a bigger bag!

  • Yes to the knit dress! Hands-down no to the belt bags.

  • I love that dress! This spring I bought it in oatmeal as part of my back to the office splurge.

  • I love the idea of The Row’s belt bag. In practice, the bag flops forward (the Matches Fashion video does a good job of showing this) and I found the ties tough to navigate. I wish it had a proper buckle fastening, which I think would solve both those issues, leaving only whether or not I can actually pull off a belt bag or if it’s something I’m better off admiring on others. 🙂

  • I am sympathetic to the belt-bag comments here: I am not sure that I can make it work for me. Preston just owned her bonnet last winter, though, and that was more challenging than what is essentially a clutch on a strap. I’m interested to see how she works through the belt-bag options!
