At the end of this Eid weekend, schools will start, work schedules will pick up pace and summer will probably come to an end. So, how does one celebrate the last stretch of summer? Well, this season, summer fashion was easy – be it the Greek sandals or breezy kaftans, the boho style was going strong. One of the great things about living in Warmer Countries is that we can wear these summer styles for the next couple of months. However, if there was another trend that made its presence felt, it was the circle bag. It was the accessory that spelt Summer 2018 (though the shape has been around since Spring 2017). Given that the circle cross-body bag also features in many Fall/Winter 2018 collections, it may well be your final summer purchase.
Be it Chanel or Zara, sphere-like bags can see you from day to evening, depending on their size and styling. It’s a shape unlike any other, and yet so practical, especially when you wear it as a cross-body or tote. Its curves make sure the bag falls on the body with ease, though it can accommodate fewer things as compared to a standard rectangular bag. Meghan Markle was one of the first celebrities who drew attention to this trend when she wore a Chloe “Pixie” suede shoulder bag at Sandringham last year during Christmas. Since it has handles, you can use the Chloe bag in many ways – Meghan chose to carry it as a small tote.
