Sling It, Sister!
Let's talk spring bag trends - specifically the sling bag. Okay, so it's basically a fanny pack; the 90s bag your mom wore to take you to the zoo re imagined as a waist bag and then re imagined again, trendily slung across your body. It's a cross body bag, but not. Fashion is a strange and fickle monster, isn't it?
One of my favorite things to study back when I was in school for fashion was the art of trend forecasting. The study of prior trends, the cycle of them, and then contemplating how they will be modernized. When I purchased this "fanny pack"/waist bag/sling bag when I was in Iceland I know that my husband thought I was a little crazy. "Really Sahra, you come to another country and you buy a fanny pack?". "Yes, Z, Yes" I mused, "just wait another year and this is going to be the trendiest piece in my wardrobe".
So I was a little wrong; it took more than a year but here we are, in 2018 where the Kendalls and the Kylies and the Gigis and the Rihannas of the world are at the forefront of the style mafia.
