For years upon years upon years, there have been few choices for different ways in which to carry a bag. While certain styles are designed to accommodate a variety of methods, most typically, options can be a bit limited. A girl can most simply choose between a handheld approach, shoulder slung styles, or perhaps even carrying in the crook of the arm.
Though I first noticed the hip as a new method of transport a while back - and no, I am not suggesting dusting off a fanny pack any time soon - this latest progression has found its way onto the runways for Spring 2014 with prominence, it seems, during the Paris collections.
Fashion voyeurs, keep an eye out - such as the jacket-worn-as-cape was once before, and the shirt tied around the waist is currently, I predict this will be the latest street-style look du jour and will surely be cropping up on a sidewalk near you.
