THE BELT BAG: THE STYLE
MUST-HAVE MADE FOR MUMS

WHAT

The Wandler leather belt bag (I would avoid names like bumbag or fanny pack, if you don’t want the children to get silly every time you wear one).

PRICE

£330

LIFETIME COST

Worn twice a week for three years, the cost-per-wear works out at just £1.

WHY

Remember the life-changing realisation that you could hold your drink and still swipe with a cross body bag? The belt bag is pretty much the same, but think scooter in one hand, little one in the other. Handcrafted in Italy in beautiful calf leather, more than a fad they are surprisingly versatile (especially in leather rather than canvas). Created by Dutch designer Elza Wandler, I love that these come in energising pops of colour – wear yours wrapped around a chunky knit, swung over your shoulder or carried by hand for evening. Functional, fun, modern – they are my New Year must buy.

GREAT FOR

The school run, whenever you are out with the pram but want to keep your money/phone/travel card close to hand, and they are even elegant enough for evening.
