There's something about a crescent-shaped bag that just seems to scratch an itch in our little fashion-forward brains these days. Softer than a classic rectangular or square bag, and less cute than a fully circular bag, the half-moon or crescent shaped bag has been taking over our feeds for the better half of the year, and we're jumping aboard! There is a slouchiness that a half-moon shape lends to its silhouette, offering a slightly more relaxed feel to things, plus with Y2K style very much back in and here to stay, we can hardly be blamed for returning to the nostalgic shape.
It seems half-moon shaped bags' sales are up, and whether you're into a structured semi-circle shape or a slouchy hobo, we're rounding up our favourite selects for the crescent bag trend, below.
If you are in the market for a new bag and the half moon shape isn't your thing, check out our round up on the best tote bags we're shopping right now, or the best beach bags for summer. We also have a piece on mini bags if you're looking to swing in the other direction. Otherwise, if you're looking for something a little more shiny for a night out, we have a round up on our favourite going-out bags for the evening. We also have a round up of the designer bags that last a lifetime if you're looking to make your first big investment and are unsure where to start. There, we round up some of the most iconic silhouettes in fashion history, with an edit of bags that won't go out of style any time soon.
