2021 Trends: The best 90s bags to buy now

Carrie Bradshaw eat your heart out.

We loved them when Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Aniston championed them 30 years ago, and if it’s even possible, we love them even more now.

90s bags are back – and they’re still as practical, chic and effortless as they always were. While Dior’s Saddle bag and the Fendi Baguette were more recently reissued to celebrate the 90s shoulder bag, here we show you some more affordable options for those wanting to try the trend on a budget.

Whether you’re looking to spend £20 or £200, we’re here to help.
