Small, intimate and extremely user-friendly, Messenger bags are all about simplicity and comfort. The good thing about them is that they tend to de-clutter your life and suddenly the limited space can make you feel nothing less than liberated. The best thing about them? They cut across all age groups. From a backpacker visiting the ruins of Pompeii to the sweet little aunty on the subway reading her morning paper with much vigour, Messenger bags are fast becoming the toast of Bagville. Call it a strappy bag, a carryall or a sling bag, the Messenger bag is everything the doctor ordered for those who carry the world’s burden with them all day long. Trust us, the lighter the load, the better the mood. Plus, let’s not forget how these bags extend your lifespan by just giving up all that room for folders and multiple pockets, making your day organized and well-spent. So we decided to give you a few options from our own collection that hit this trend with a vengeance. Enjoy!
The Sophomore satchel that can make eyes turn when you pair it on your bright-coloured denims and a neat denim shirt.
The Museum Tour bag is easy to carry on a perfect retro look, complete with leggings and ballet flats. Add cute floral hair clips and clip-on earrings for effect!
The Freshman Satchel can make any look fun and fabulous – just thrown on your favourite pair of denims and a white shirt. Ballet flats, check!
The Museum bag is just functional and fashionable; make sure the LBD you wear it with comes with a statement necklace and high heels.
The Coffee Break Satchel is the best thing one can pair with a pretty little indie kaftan and bright-coloured leggings. Add a few baubles and tie your hair up in a neat bun and we’re set for the day.
The Trooper Bag is just not for the faint-hearted – pair it with cargo shorts and a slogan tee and wait for the fun to begin.
