remember when Lizzo had a small little bag dangling from her fingers at the 2019 American Music Awards? Or when all It-girl models carried around puffy Bottega bags? These are some of the major handbag moments from the past, but what’s trending right now dates back to the early 2000s, which comes as no surprise given that the Y2K revival is still alive and well. The Crescent bag is having a moment and all the A-listers – including Jennifer Lopez – are rocking it.

The crescent bag, also known as the croissant bag, is exactly what you’d expect. Shaped like a crescent moon, it reminds you of the flaky French pastry that everyone loves to munch on. So many top designers have embraced this trend, including Louis Vuitton, Loewe Miu Miu and Balenciaga, to name a few. But not everyone has the money to spend on such investment pieces.

Thankfully, saving the day is none other than J.Lo with an $83 crescent bag she recently carried. Charles & Keith’s Crescent Hobo Bag competes with all its more expensive counterparts and here’s why. Firstly, it has a great shape and lots of texture, making it a piece that everyone’s eyes will be glued to. Second, the gold hardware adds an extra touch of sophistication and luxury. And thirdly, the two circular zippers along with the latch closure on the strap are unique features that make this bag stand out from the rest.

It comes in a bright white color (as J.Lo wore) which is perfect for year-round wear, as well as a rich chocolate brown that would look especially stunning during fall and winter. You can follow J.Lo’s lead and style yours Crescent Hobo Bag with a monochrome outfit (as seen in her stylist Mariel Haenn’s Instagram post), or you can pair it with a bunch of different colors, textures and patterns for the ultimate Y2K feel. Julia Fox recently wore one black Balenciaga crescent bag with a head-to-toe denim look, and honestly, I’m here for it. The Charles & Keith option would look so good with sporty accents, like eye or wrap sunglasses.

Whichever way you go, you’ll be reaching for this crescent bag literally 24/7 because it’s so versatile and chic. Shop it at Charles & Keith for $83which is pretty sneaky considering similar bags with designer price tags will run you for thousands of of dollars.
