Belted bags are back in 2018. Thanks to luxe designers like Prada and Gucci, the belted bag is a refined statement piece far from our memories of the nylon waist bags of the 90’s.

Belted bags give any outfit a high-fashion look while remaining a hands-free way to carry a bag.

Carrying more in your wristlet won’t be a problem with new styles featuring: handle bags, bracelet bags, pouch-style wristlets, and more. Redesigned to hold more, these wristlets are a tiny version of your purse, perfectly styled to carry on your wrist. Chloe wristlets come in a variety of shapes, like mini bracelet bags, and small ring-handled purses. You’ll find these charming little bags are perfect for your spring wardrobe!
