If there's one thing we know about fashionistas in Singapore, we all love a good trendy bag that keeps us on the chic radar. Case in point: the soft and slouchy cloud and cassette bags that luxury brand Bottega Veneta created two years ago have now morphed into a fluffier and puffy version – the puffer bag.
There is something so satisfying about touching and holding a buttery puffer bag close. The puffer bag is now slightly bigger in volume, thus creating a playful way to show off your personality and style. I've seen cake-sized Stella McCartney and Coach bags on the runways of Paris Fashion Week Spring 2023 that I want to squish so badly.
Plus, don't you think with the rainy mornings we've been experiencing lately, holding a puffy bag will give you such a comforting feeling to work?
It's easy to work these bags into your everyday style, and here are my tips: choose a bright, fluorescent colour if you want to make a fashion statement, or stick to neutral colours for a more timeless look.
