Moon bags used to be the butt of the joke, the fashion faux pas, relegated to the back of your closet with crocs and mom jeans

And then mom jeans became a fashion must-have and what do you know, moon bags became huge too.

The Kardashians, Sarah Jessica Parker, Brie Larson and Rihanna all love them, and they’re great for when you don’t want to carry a big bulky bag, when you have to run around doing errands or if you just want to look extra stylish.

Here’s how you can nail the moon bag look:

Accessorise a simple outfit

Your bag is a very important part of your outfit. Instead of a belt, why not throw on a moon bag on your waist or over your shoulder? They’re great for breaking up a solid colour and are both super fashionable and functional.

Perfect match

The cutest way to wear a moon bag is when it matches your outfit. Purple print plus purple bag? Yes please. And don’t be afraid to wear one that completely blends into your outfit.

Fashionable fitness bunny

What better bag to carry to the gym or on a run than a moon bag? Your stuff will be safe, easy to carry and you’ll look great too.

The classic way

Rocking a moon bag around your waist is kicking it old school in the best way. All the celebs love this totally 80s throwback way of wearing them.

Pop of colour

Let your bag be that one loud accessory that speaks for your entire outfit. Wear a bright yellow or pink moon bag with a muted outfit.
