Because it's a timeless style every girl needs.

An iconic leather accessory in its own right, the baguette bag rose to “It” bag status in the early aughts when it first appeared on Sex and the City as Carrie Bradshaw’s go-to purse. Created by Fendi in the 1990’s, the baguette bag features a short shoulder strap and rectangular-shaped body that is practical yet still very stylish. Since then, the baguette has become a style staple in every fashion girl’s closet while the silhouette has been embraced by designers all over the world. Even labels like Prada and Louis Vuitton have created their own iterations of the trendy purse that solidified its popularity over the years since its inception.

With the re-emergence of Y2K trends like tinted sunglasses, baggy jeans, and chunky sneakers popping up on our social media feeds, the baguette bag, too, has made its comeback with a new generation of celebs and influencers rocking the It accessory with their stylish 'fits. To get a sense of how to style the baguette bag, we’ve put together some styling inspiration for your next OOTD.

How Celebs and Influencers Style Their Baguette Bags:

Look chic in an all nude ensemble like Vina Guerrero, who paired her beige Prada Nylon Mini Bag with a tank top and joggers in similar shades to tie in the monochromatic look. Her look is elevated with a matching pair of By Far kitten heels that can take this casual look from day to night.

3. Alyssa Coscarelli

Instagram and street style star Alyssa Coscarelli (@alyssainthecity) believes in matching her bag with her dress, and why not? Opt for a minimalist leather accessory—Alyssa’s choice is a chic Goerge Kuberia baguette in noir—to complement a statement printed or embroidered LBD.

4. Laureen Uy

Laureen Uy is known for being adventurous when it comes to colors, so we weren’t surprised to see her in a neon green suit paired with a neon pink baguette from Seoul-based brand Ouitt that matched her shoes, and perfectly complemented the whole ensemble.

5. Qjin and Qwon

For stylish twin sisters Qjin and Qwon, more popularly known as @q2han on Instagram, texture plays a huge role in leveling up basic pieces. Here, they play around with leather, denim, ruched fabrics and so on to create playful 'fits despite the pared down color palette. Not to mention, their sculptural baguette bags and chunky boots are the perfect finishing touches.

6. Petra Mack

Influencer @pepamack on Instagram is known for her headless outfit photos that spread like wildfire on style inspo accounts and Pinterest. Her way of styling a baguette bag involves a polished yet relaxed 'fit that evokes a strong office-to-drinks charm. Her structured baguette sits well against her unbuttoned silk top for the perfect contrast.
