It’s time to gear up for battle, and by battle I mean Black Friday (and all the sale days preceding, as it seems they’re earlier and earlier every year!) and by gear I mean a belt bag. It may seem crazy to suggest buying a bag in order to go buy other things, but it’s better to be hands-free so that you can shop in top form. Besides, these are not your mother’s fanny packs. The costume designer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has designed a collection for NET-A-PORTER, and since Katniss is a sensible Snob, a belt bag ($225) of course found its way into the Capitol Couture. See which others will ensure the odds are ever in your favor as you shop your way to the holidays!
NewbarK Leather Belt Bag: With the stark contrast of trendy black and white against shimmering gold hardware, this bag just oozes elegance. Who knew a fanny pack could be so chic? On NET-A-PORTER for $990.
NewbarK Eva Snake-Effect Leather Belt Bag: This is one of the most luxe belt bags I’ve ever seen! And while it’s $1K+, it’s worth noting that you can carry the bag itself as a clutch, sans belt. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,200.
Bottega Veneta Small Woven Belt Bag: BV’s signature Intrecciato lends an air of sophistication to the casual bag style. At Saks Fifth Avenue for $1,250.
MICHAEL Michael Kors Logo Belted Bag: Even though not everyone is a fan of large logos, everyone is a fan of a Frugal friendly price. At Neiman Marcus for $88.
B-Low The Belt Tassel Belt Bag: A chunky tassel adds a whimsical touch to an otherwise simple bag (and belt, which you can rock solo). On Shopbop for $248.
