How to Carry an Oversize Shoulder Bag
So, you're not here for Lizzo's tiny bag? You don't feel like giving the Jacquemus' Le Chiquito a try? Me neither, girl. Because I have STUFF. Stuff that ranges from Ice Breakers Ice Cubes Arctic Grape gum to the half-dollar-size key fob that lets me into my apartment. Also, as our Style Director Dana pointed out, the big bag is such a good look.
Bottega Veneta's oversize pouches have been making the rounds on fashion's elite (we love how Rosie Huntington-Whiteley styles the clutch), but there are so many other silhouettes to choose from. When you're toting this big-ass bag of the moment, you can hoist it up on the side of your hip, tuck it away under your arm, or grip it from the top and swing it down at your side. We even love Pernille Teisbaek's styling method for the jumbo shoulder bag — she spins the pouch to the back to achieve that "watch me as I go" look.
At the end of the day, the jumbo bag is great for so many reasons. Regardless of the shape you choose, you can fit all the things inside — if you're lucky, even your laptop — plus you get to try out all the really chic outfit ideas below. Oh, and I didn't even think I'd have to say it to convince you, but naturally, the girls with the big bags have the toned biceps from lifting all that weight, am I right? It's just science.
