Perhaps the most talked about item at last September’s New York fashion week was the extra large half moon bucket bag by Victoria Beckham. This bag will most likely be the bag to have this season, but you have to get on a waiting list to buy one. Since that particular bag might be out of your reach, let’s look at some alternatives in the same half moon bag style.
The half moon shape for women’s accessories is not a new one. In fact, one of the reasons it is so popular now is that it has that 1970s feel that is trending in so many looks in 2016. One of the great things about this bag shape is that it can be used in a number of different styles. Half moon bags can be bucket bags, shoulder bags, handbags, saddle bags, crossbody bags, or even wristlets.
In addition to a variety of styles, half moon bags come in both enormous sizes or small sizes depending on your need. A large bucket style half moon bag is great for everyday use, but a small shoulder bag or wristlet might be what you need to an evening out. Since another women’s accessory trend for 2016 is larger bags rather than smaller ones, it is good that half moon works in large sizes.
Half moon bags can be made of many different materials as well, but leather is probably the most common because it can maintain a more sturdy shape which is important with this shape of handbag. However, you can find bags made of other materials like soft cloths or weaves.
