From bold sunglasses to entire fashion jewelry sets, there’s something for everyone when it comes to accessorizing and completing your ideal outfit.
One accessory that’s seen its fair share of use over the years is the satchel bag.
Although popular now as a fashion piece, the satchel bag didn’t exactly start out that way.
Let’s dive into the history of the satchel bag and throw in some of our favorite styles for autumn 2021.
History of Satchel Bags
The satchel bag began its fashion journey as a functional piece. During ancient Roman times, they were used to carry various belongings, such as personal rations.
However, things changed during the 17th century, when satchel bags were starting to be viewed as a fashion piece. During these times, the satchel bag was often carried by school-age children. This trend carried on through to the mid 20th century, where nearly every child wore a satchel bag to school.
Since then, the satchel bag has come and gone as a fashion staple over the years. Now, with vintage looks becoming more prominent, the satchel bag is at an all-time high in popularity as a stylish accessory used to tie an outfit together.
