I'm over the "clout pack" trend.
Despite the sartorial success of fanny packs and their contribution to the U.S. accessories industry's growth, I'm already over the "clout pack" trend and looking for a similarly stylish alternative. I've had my eye on Kara's "bike wallet" for a while, but the original creation was a micro-bag that would only fit items that stand at a teeny-tiny three inches high and four inches wide. Luckily, designer Sarah Law, who launched her New York label in 2013, released a larger version of the cool accessory, which was inspired by the chunky bike chains that cyclists wear around the city.
This new version can fit an iPhone and a few other everyday necessities, so I can carry this bag when I'm running errands, to a workout or whenever I want or need to carry a minimal collection of things on me. Plus, the chain strap is removable, so it can double as a large wallet or clutch, too. A multifunctional fashion piece! Sign me up.
Kara Black Large Bike Wallet, $375, available here.
