COZY CARDIGANS FOR FALL
Hollywood’s trendsetters are ditching their bulky oversize carryalls and hailing the compact “dad accessory” as their new #It bag. “The modern girl on the go wants a lightweight, utilitarian purse that easily stores all of her essentials without the fuss of a large tote, and the ‘ bum bag’ fits that description perfectly,” says Toye Adedipe, who has styled stars like Christina Milian and Jennifer Hudson. Even better, today’s versions come in luxe fabrics, bold colors and countless shapes, giving the dull nylon wraparounds of the ’90s a chic, high-fashion upgrade. And the fanny pack can be figure-flattering, too! “It hits the highest part of the hips to define a small waistline for a super-sexy hourglass effect,” says Adedipe. Bonus? “Marrying the hip-slinging belt bag with a statement cardigan instantly ups the street-style cred of the retro-inspired piece.” Here, our edit of four #hawt pairings for any outing.
