Top Camera Bags: Smile and Say Chic!

Valentino_SmallZipTopCameraBag

Here it is, one of the trendiest bag shapes for Spring 2016: the camera case. You’re going to be grateful, and not just because the newest ones are mega-cute. Think of the camera case bag as a crossbody upgrade. Is there an easier bag to run around with than this boxy yet surprisingly roomy little silhouette? I recently got this sunny yellow Valentino (at Madison Los Angeles for $1,395), and I’m currently in the throes of a serious love affair with the classic style.

From the Gucci Soho to Saint Laurent’s chevron texture to Céline’s Box on strap, the camera bag goes perfectly with ’70s-inspired super-flare jeans and a floppy-brimmed hat. Nonchalantly chic and not trying too hard, there are more than a few reasons to make a case for this new-season staple.

6. ASOS Chain Cross Body Bag With Pom: Bag charm fever is at an all-time high, but the downside is that the prices of these keychains can be just as steep. With the addition of a removable pom pom to this classic black bag, this is basically a two-for-one! ASOS has On ASOS for $30.79
