Paper-Bag Bottoms – 3 Ways

Paper bag fashion

Not familiar with what paper-bag bottoms are? Paper-bag bottoms are simply high-waisted bottoms that have a slighted ruffled top when cinched together. The shape genuinely looks like what a paper lunch bag would when you grab onto it and leave the top part of the bag peeking out of your fist.

If you haven’t tried out paper-bag bottoms before, we know that it’s probably crossed your mind as to how to wear them. Since the point of the paper-bag style is to show off the design, crop tops, blouses, tees, and fitted tops work very well with this silhouette. It’s a sartorial balancing act. features a neutral and versatile paper-bag culotte by Rag & Bone that you will be able to get a ton of wear out of for the spring, summer, and fall seasons!
