We’ve heard of Hot Girl Summer but what is “Hot Girl Belt Bag” and why is it trending on TikTok?

@luisasboost I can’t believe how much stuff can go in this bag #beltbag #lulu #fyp ♬ hot girl belt bag - kels | fashion inspo

It all started when content creators discovered the Lululemon belt bag, which quickly became their go-to purse due to its spacious interior despite how compact it looks. The style is also versatile as it can be carried as a clutch, a shoulder bag or a multipurpose waist belt to spruce up any outfit.

The rise of chain belts over the last couple of months in several fashion shows have also played a part in opening the doors for this humble bag style to make its resurgence. 

Hugging the waist and hips effortlessly, the bag’s main attraction lies in how convenient it is — both your hands are free to hold onto other items such as a drink, a snack or a bunch of shopping bags with ease.
