Tommy Hilfiger is one of my favourite brands when it comes to somewhat more prestigious fashion items. Especially their bags always catch my attention. For a while I’ve had a lot of fun with my other Tommy bag but recently it was time for an update. I had been eyeing this bag for a couple of weeks and when I finally decided I wanted to buy it, it was sold out. However, after a couple of weeks of nervously checking the website I found out it was back in stock and I immediately ordered it. I’ve been wearing it for a couple of weeks now, so I thought it might be fun to do a fashion review on it. So, if you’re interested in reading about how I like it and whether or not I think it’s worth the splurge, make sure you continue reading!
On the Tommy website they describe/name this bag “Striped Crossbody Bag With Chain” and I think that that’s a pretty good name for this bag. It basically sums up what this is. It is a bag in the classic Tommy blue colour. There is a white and a red stripe on the top part of the bag and on both sides it has a golden Tommy Hilfiger, TH, logo. I really love how these logo’s as added on there because it makes the bag look a lot more unique and luxurious in my opinion. I also think that the red, blue and white colour combination is really pretty and the golden details look very good with that.
The chain on this bag, which is the thing that you will use to wear this bag on either your shoulder or cross-body, is golden. What I really like about it is that it’s pretty darn heavy for what it is. Lots of cheaper bags that come with a chain like that feel very, very cheap. But you can definitely tell by feeling it that that ain’t the case in this bag. It feels good. Even my boyfriend was very impressed by that.
The downside to the heftiness of the chain is that it is pretty noisy. I think that’s because it’s made out of metal rather than plastic, which does make pretty loud sounds when it touches itself or touches an object. This can be slightly awkward if you’re in a very silent room or whatever. But aside from that I don’t really mind it at all.

The size of the bag actually surprised me when it came in. And with that I don’t actually mean the actual size, but more like the amount of stuff that fits into it. The bag itself is medium-sized. It’s perfect to take with you on the go when you’re going shopping or something like that. I also think that the size looks decent. It’s not like an abnormally big bag to wear on your shoulder or something like that. It’s just pretty.
Anyway, back to the amount of stuff that fits inside this little guy. The bag has two compartments that close with a zipper and also a middle part. It does depend on how bulky the things are that you put in the zipper compartments, how much will fit in the middle part, but in general you have three areas to put stuff in. And therefore this bag does hold quite a lot of stuff. You can easily fit in a pretty big sized wallet, a million lipstick, your keys, a pack of tissues and whatnot.
The only thing that isn’t ideal to store in this bag is a pair of sunglasses in their case. If something is pretty bulky, this will make sure you cant really reach to the bottom of the middle part easily, which will most likely result in me not putting anything in there that I need a lot. But still, it is possible to carry that stuff in there, but it will just influence how much other stuff you can store.
Quality wise I think this bag is really, really amazing. You can tell that this isn’t cheap material. The bag feels really nice and sturdy and all the details are perfectly made. No random parts that are looking a little undone, no zippers that don’t zip easily. Nothing of that matter. It’s just a very high-quality bag. The bag is made out of faux leather, which I think is a big plus. I don’t think you need real leather to have a proper quality bag and since leather is made out of animals I just don’t think you should opt for that. But that’s just my opinion, please don’t shoot me if you disagree.
Another thing about the bag that shows how well made and well thought out this bag is, is the inside. On the inside of the way you’ll see nice and white interior. This probably does get dirty pretty easily since it is white, but it’s very easy to clean because of the material it is made of. But what I like is how nice this inside looks. Even though the inside of a bag is the least important part in terms of what it looks like, I think it’s really nice that it looks this good.
Overall I think that this Tommy bag looks absolutely stunning. I think it’s a very stylish bag to wear to any occasion where you need more than a very tiny bag, but not a large bag either. I think that the quality is just amazing, it is very well made and they used nice materials. But my favourite part of this bag is by far the design of it. I really love how classy the Tommy Hilfiger items are, how chic and stylish. Yup, I’m sure this is and will be one of my favourite bags for a very, very long time! I really love wearing it!
That will be it for today’s fashion review! I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know what you think of my new Tommy bag and whether or not you’d wear it too!
