Buckle Bags Are Back and Better Than Ever

Since what was once old is new again once again, it only makes sense to go back to trusty favorites that have never let us down. From oversized shades to argyle sweaters, we are checking out everything and anything “vintage.” At the top of our old-school accessory list? The buckle bag. But these aren’t the buckle bags of yore. They’ve gotten a funky, hip upgrade courtesy of the runways with more and more labels opting for exaggerated buckles (frequently of the logo variety) on fresh silhouettes, like belt bags and boxy cases. Bonus: Those flashy clasps add a sartorial edge to any fall outfit.

Here are some of the chicest buckle bags around.
