In recent years, the 90s style bags have come back into fashion and there are lots of fun ways to work them into your wardrobe in 2023.

  • Versatility: Consider opting for a slightly modern take on the 90s bag with a removable long shoulder trap to give you more options for wearing this bag. 
  • Colours: Go for a bold block print for true 90s style, or consider something sparkly and blingy for a special event. 
  • Material: Consider where you’ll be wearing your bag and choose acrylic, vegan leather or woven straw exteriors.
