This versatile bag is here to stay and we're sharing some handy hobo fashion tips so you can style it with all of your outfits

To say that your handbag holds your entire universe would be an understatement. Because honestly, it does more than that. Usually it's a combination of her keys, phone, wallet, charger, hand lotion, sanitiser, lip balm, makeup pouch. But sometimes it also works as shoe closet or a snack bar. Perhaps intuiting this, bag makers designed the hobo.

It is big enough to keep everything and can make a fashionable statement at the same time. Naturally, for a busy girl on-the-go, the hobo is literally the best invention.

But if you're wondering whether or not you can style it with outfits other than your jeans and tee, we're here to tell you "Yes, you can!" We'll show you how it's done so you can also experiment with other outfits and still carry your favourite bag. 

Hobo Fashion Tips: Style Your Anti-Theft Bag

But you can give it a stylish spin by throwing in a biker jacket and your hobo. If you love to ride your own bike, you can add some boots to the combination. Otherwise, flat ballerinas could make for a more work-appropriate look. 

#2 The power ranger

There is nothing better than a bag that can carry everything and then your laptop, as you rush to work.

You can store everything—your party dress, heels and makeup—and make a style statement by ditching the small clutches.
