Once in a while, our Instagram feed will fill up with a certain item, designer, company, etc., that all the it-girls seem to embrace. Recently, the it-bags category welcomed another trendy model. So, if you refreshed your feed in the last few months, you had probably come across this rising trend and can give it a name – teardrop bags. Unlike other bags whose names derive from their shape, form, or a different formative characteristic, the teardrop bags got their name precisely because of the space that opens up between the body of the bag and the carrying handle. The round-shaped hole is the common denominator of this boiling category, which no influencer can afford to miss.
The website Who Wear What described the teardrop bags as an updated and freer version of the familiar Hobo bags – thanks to a distinct roundness in the body of the bag, which creates the drop space along with the carrying strap. This handbag is practical. The teardrop shape allows you to throw it over your shoulder comfortably, and from one look at all the photos, you’ll see how much sense this bag shape actually makes. It’s basically the purse equivalent of a hug for your underarm (and what more could you want?).
