How To Wear Steampunk Waist/Leg Bag?

1. Take your bag and try to fold it in four places if possible.

3. If you have a big purse, wear it around your waist with an elastic band or a belt like strap.

Bottom of the bag

The bottom of the bag should be open to show a beautiful pattern. The fabric should be stitched in a way that it is not visible from the front and hence the opening is facing down and can only be seen from the back.

Top of the bag

If you love the look of a collar, go for a high-collared waist bag. However, for those who love the easy access of wearing a crossbody bag, purchase one with a long strap. It’s also worth considering how practical you need your purse to be during the day. Some people prefer to carry a smaller purse that is easily accessible and has plenty of space for cards and cash. Others would rather carry something larger that can hold all their essentials without being too cumbersome.

Accessories for waist bags

You can wear a waist bag with a long skirt or trousers by using the strap that is attached to the bag and you can use it as a belt. If your dress or skirt doesn’t have straps, you can use garter straps.
