This classic 90s bag is back in a very big way, everyone, so get ready to feel incredibly nostalgic…
You may remember the long, short handled shoulder bag from the 90s and 00s. Back then, they were practically the icing on the cake to every ‘jeans and a nice top’ combo, and now they’re back.
Of course, there are other styles like the half moon bags and the micro minis (naturally including Jacquemus) that are getting our attention, but the shoulder bag has been around for a while and shows no sign of going anywhere. So, how do you style them?
French influencer Adenorah (seen above) shows how to style the baguette bag with a hint of Parisian chic. Teaming with oval sunglasses, a Faithfull The Brand milkmaid style dress (they’re also key this year) and fail-safe flip flops.
The shoulder bag is one of those styles you can incorporate into any outfit. From day to after dark they’re the accessory that’ll work round the clock. This is why when our fashion team spotted even more styles popping up in the ‘new in’ sections of everyone’s favourite brands – including Zara, Topshop and Mango – they took it upon themselves to show you the best ones.
From high street to original Fendi options from the pre-loved sections, these are the best baguette bags to shop, and wear, for 2019.
Mango croc-effect baguette bag
If you want a bag that’ll go effortlessly with any outfit you own (no thought required), then of course you need to go for black.
This glossy Mango style is the under £30 update you’ll wear on repeat from this season, to the next.
Zara baguette bag with buckle
We already know that Zara is the go-to for affordable accessory updates. This time, it’s the selection of baguette bags we have our eye on.
Wear this dusty pink beauty with a tonal outfit for a winning look.
By Far Miranda snake-effect leather shoulder bag
By Far is known for their bags. In fact, they’ve had so many ‘it’ styles it’s hard for even our fashion team to keep up.
Meet Miranda, the new season baguette bag that’s already sold out on most sites. Snake print will update any outfit, from a moody floral dress to jeans and a tee.

There’s no doubt about it. Along with baguette bags, anklets and hair clips, there’s also 90s diamantes to add to the throwback accessory mix.

Little Liffner baguette mini patent leather bag
