Will the early 2000s be the latest retro fashion craze? Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton, influencers before the term even existed, recently teamed up again for Kardashian’s launch of a velour tracksuit for her brand Skims, paired of course with metallic Louis Vuitton Monogram Miroir Alma bags. On the Skims Velour campaign behind-the-scenes IGTV video, Kardashian shared that the bags were what she got for them both for Christmas. The bags soon came to represent their 2000s style, as the duo took them regularly on their travels to Australia and Ibiza, switching colours back and forth for matching looks.

Hinting at the comeback of fashion trends from that era, here STYLE presents decorative and flashy bags that will add pop to any outfit, from comfortable sporty velour tracksuits to holiday glad rags.
