Now, join us in exploring the 5 ways to slay the sling game and look stylish while doing it!

1. Creatively Styled Backpack

Backpacks have become a rage among women’s fashion accessories in recent years. The cute, strappy, and easy-to-carry bags are not just stylish but also handy. And now we’re here to guide you on how to transform the sling bags for women with a wide long strap into a sling backpack.

Firstly, wear the shoulder sling bag around the neck like a garland. Then, take your arms out from the strap of the vegan leather sling bag. Following this, grab the purse from under the arm and throws it backwards, over the head. And the result is a magical transformation of the sling purse.

Transforming a sling bag into a backpack can be a useful trick when you need to carry more weight or need to keep your hands free. With a few simple adjustments, you can turn your sling bag into a comfortable and functional backpack. Moreover, the jacquard strap of the sling bag and the shape of the purse makes the sling bag turned backpack into a stylish accessory.

2. Mix ‘N Match Colours

Our in-house designer bags and sling bags come in 5 different colours of black, brown, beige, purple and pink. The best part about these sling purses? They’ve got detachable long straps! We hope this gives you an idea of what sling bag hack we’re going for here.

The handles can be interchanged to create contrasting colour tones, and the coin pouches with the sling bags can also be exchanged for a colourful look. This also makes your sling bag look anew. By choosing complementary colours, sticking to a colour scheme, experimenting with the distinctive jacquard patterns in each sling bag, considering the occasion, and having fun with it, you can create a unique and stylish look that's all your own.

The black purse can be equipped with a beige strap while the pink purse can be equipped with a contrasting purple strap. This is also useful if you have a multicoloured or dual-coloured outfit on. When opting for a different coloured strap for your sling bag, consider the occasion you'll be wearing it to. A bright, bold-coloured strap such as the purple-coloured sling bag strap might be perfect for a casual outing, but a more subdued colour like the beige coloured or the light pink coloured crossbody bag strap might be more appropriate for a formal event.

3. On-The-Go Clutch

The utilitarian sling bag has been given new life as a sleek and stylish clutch. The form of the sling bag has been streamlined and its strap removed, leaving only the smooth form of the purse. Equipped with a glinting metal zipper atop the bag’s opening, securing its contents within, this transformed sling bag has become a statement piece, a testament to how well-designed the sling bags for women by Nestasia are.


The sling bags by Nestasia embody multifunctionality. The bags feature removable straps and without these, the purse can function as a stylish clutch to pair with your party outfit or a formal dress.

The wide strap crossbody bags feature metal clip links that enable it to be removed from the purse. The purse makes for a standalone clutch in itself to accessorize any outfit.

4. The Cool Back Sling Bag 

Turn your crossbody sling bag into a one-shoulder sling backpack which is just what it sounds like. It is a bag designed like a traditional backpack, but it only has one shoulder strap instead of two. This shoulder strap is designed to be worn over one shoulder and across the torso. The sling crossbody backpack enables you to carry essentials easily while looking stylish at the same time.

The style is quite easy to achieve wherein you can shorten the length of the strap of the shoulder sling bag and position the bag at your back. A back sling bag is a convenient and hands-free way to carry your belongings. This is particularly useful when you need to keep your hands free for other tasks, such as shopping, hiking, or travelling. With the coin pouch in the sling bags, you can keep items that you access frequently, such as your keys or wallet.

5. At Reach Waist Bags

Waist bags continue to be the trend for 2022 and 2023. Transforming a sling bag into a waist bag, also known as a fanny pack or belt bag, is a simple process. They are extremely functional and what’s better than having essentials right at your fingertips? Transforming the sling bag into a waist bag is easy and they don’t put any strain on your shoulders.

To wear the sling bag as a waist bag, position the bag at your waist and fasten the strap around your waist. Once the bag is attached to your waist, adjust the strap so that it's comfortable and snug. You want the bag to be secure so that it doesn't move around while you're wearing it.

Wearing a waist bag can help to keep your belongings secure, as it keeps them close to your body and within your line of sight. A waist bag is also more comfortable than carrying a heavy bag on your shoulder or back.
