The 90s are back in a big way. Slip dresses, hair clips, leather jackets and the baguette bag are all returning to the runway. Snap up a piece of the trend with these chic baguette bags.
The return of 90s accessories has been impossible to miss. Scrunchies and pearl clips have adorned hair, chokers have garnered necks, slip dresses have been re-introduced to our wardrobes - and if the street style at the most recent shows is anything to go by, the classic 90s style bag has returned in full force.
Whilst Jennifer Anniston and Drew Barrymore might have been the original poster girls, Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Kaia Gerber have frequently been spotted sporting the baguette style bag around New York, whilst simultaneously dressed in their equally nostalgic clothes. Depop searches for ‘90s bag’ have also seen a serious increase.
The bag is a mixture of both practical (unlike the miniature Chiquito bags famously flounced at the Jacquemus runway) and a chic with a hint of tongue-in-cheek Regina George for good measure (only if it’s pink, of course).
Add one to your everyday jeans, crop top and cardigan look to add a vintage kick, or as an accessory to a midi dress and kitten heels to recreate your favourite Carrie Bradshaw look. From new H&M to the classic nylon Prada shoulder bag, here are the best 90s bags for the season ahead, and based on their timeless appeal, a lot longer than that.
Wear this zebra print bag with low-rise jeans and a cropped cardigan for a Kendall Jenner approved look.
