The fall 2019 accessory trend watch is officially in full swing — and with autumn just around the corner, there's no better time than now to get all caught up on the must-haves for the new season (as well as those items you should pack away for the time being). Straw hats and the raffia totes you carried with you to all of your summertime beach day gatherings can, for now, be tucked into storage. Their respective replacements? A fur bucket hat and a cute By Far bag, like the one Bella Hadid has had slung over her shoulder all Sept. long.
Even though the runways offer up an in-depth look at what's trending and what's bound to be big for the new season, the street-style scene is just as essential in one's trend-watching journey — and the wardrobes of top models, like Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, often prove to be a good kickoff point.
Hadid's Sept. off-duty looks have already demonstrated two key things: that the controversial thong sandals from the '90s are gaining serious momentum in 2019 and that, as per usual, Bulgarian-based By Far has succeeded at churning out yet another it item that's destined for cult status. Remember the brand's ever-popular Rachel bag? Yeah, there's a new tote in town that's just as cool, and Hadid is clearly a fan.
You've heard it before and you'll hear it again: When a celebrity wears something once, it's a style sighting worth taking note of, but when said tastemaker can't seem to stop reaching for that particular closet staple, it's headline-making.
In Hadid's case, By Far's newest Amber bag — which hails from the label's Fall/Winter 2019 collection — is her current obsession. It was her go-to during New York Fashion Week, and she loves it so much that she actually owns it in two different color ways.
On Sept. 9, the model stepped out in an all-white look, consisting of oversized white pants, a corset-like top, and By Far's Amber bag in the snakeskin print.
A few days later, on Sept. 12, Hadid was photographed out and about in NYC, wearing bright-red Dickies Girl carpenter pants, a Brandy Melville T-shirt, JW Anderson x Converse sneakers, and last but certainly not least, the same By Far bag, but this time the black, semi-patent leather version.
The details? The bag Hadid can't stop carrying around with her harks back on the '90s (shocker, no?) and has a distinctive 'U' shape, which means it's going to sit comfortably on your arm. It's a great size, too — not too big or too small, deeming it the perfect everyday purse. The fact that Hadid is a big fan is just the cherry on top.
So, freshen up your accessories collection by shopping the exact By Far bag Hadid has been playing favorites with, below.
