The Bracelet Bag
The bracelet bag has to be one of the biggest emerging trends in handbags over the past year or so. And with fall’s new arrivals hitting the stores, it’s clear that this trend has only gotten stronger. I personally adore this style of bag, but also realize that its a style that will eventually pass, so my instinct isn’t to invest but rather opt for one of the budget friendly options at places like Romwe, Forever 21 or Target.
The Perfect Chloe Nile Dupe
The It Bag that kicked off this hot trend was without a doubt the chic Chloe Nile. This crescent-like pouch equipped with a metal bracelet, makes for a look that’s dainty and ladylike on the streets. This obviously kicked off a slew of designer inspired options at every price point, as well as a few outright dupes.
This is a bag that moves seamlessly from spring into fall and even boasts a practical crossbody strap, making it completely mom-approved. My perfect Chloe Nile dupe is completely on point and nearly impossible to tell from the original🙂 All for under $20. It elevates even the most basic blouse/jeans/sandal outfit, as well as effortlessly incorporating into a more polished or formal look.
We’ll see, if this trend sticks around, it might end up being completely reasonable to invest in the original!
