Now trending at NYFW: the box bag
Structured bags are making a comeback. Whether it's a crossbody or a clutch, designers this year -- like Badgley Mischka whose pastel carry-all can be seen above -- are ushering in the year of the box bag.
Unlike a standard tote, the box bag retains its shape, ensuring that no matter how much (or little) you have on you, the carrying case can stand up to the task. Plus it will give your valuables a sense of extra protection.
It's probably the reason why so many street style stars such as top bloggers and fashion editors, are calling it their go-to. After all, having a dependable clutch when running from show after show for a week straight is a must.
Fashion Week aside, they make for the ultimate companion for cocktail hours, weddings, and even office attire. If you're still rocking a bulky messenger bag or pouch clutch, here are 6 reasons why you should become a box bag convert.
