10 Stadium Approved Bags You’ll Wear Even After The Game

Clear Stadium Bag

Ever since the NFL announced its change in bag policy, fashionistas have been in a tailspin searching for a cute bag that’s also stadium approved.  Truth is, cute stadium bags that are also functional aren’t easy to come by.  So we’ve searched high and low for bags that are just that, stylish yet practical.

If you’re in the market for an update to your stadium bag, keep in mind that the NFL, and most college stadiums, allow you to bring a small clutch approximately 4.5  x 6.5 .  Or, a clear bag that is no larger than 12 x 6 x 12.

Here are some of our favorites.


Mark & Graham Clear bag

Stadium Clear Crossbody Tote by Mark & Graham


Tote bags always seem like such a good idea until you have to spend an entire game holding yours.  That’s why we love that Mark & Graham’s tote comes with a shoulder strap leaving your hands free to hold a drink, a hand or stay on the ready to clap and cheer when your team scores.



Clutch Women Stadium Bag

Clutch by Clutch Women


When Comedienne and actress Sarah Colonna, who’s married to NFL punter Jon Ryan, couldn’t find a cute stadium-sized bag that wasn’t clear, she designed one of her own.  Now, Clutch Women has an entire line of just the right size bags filled inspirational messages inside. We love the shoulder, cross body, or around the waist options. The leather is vegan and totally spill and water-proof.  Score!



Stadium Bag by Hammitt

Tony SML by Hammitt


When it comes to style, Hammitt’s clear bag is a standout.  And with high quality finishes and an adjustable shoulder strap, this little bag delivers big.  We like the easy to access cell phone pocket and the fact that the purse zips shut.  Just like we like it.



Kelly Wynne Stadium Bag

Clear Mindle Mingle Mini With Mini Logo by Kelly Wynne


While the name of Kelly Wynne’s stadium bag may be a tongue twister, this clear bag is one of our favorites.  The bag is just big enough to hold all you’ll need for the game, and then some. While the five color options, including python and gold, may have you wanting to buy more than just one.

Collins Crossbody Bag by Gigi New York


The adjustable strap and zip closure make the Collins bag super practical while the silver, gold or python options make it stylish year round.  But with the option to personalize the bag and the team color tassel that attaches to the bag, this bag is the right bag no matter which team you’re rooting for.



Clear bag by Truffle

Clarity Crossbody by Truffle


Truffle’s crossbody stadium-approved bag is just enough bag to hold the essentials.  And the simple, chic style will go with just about anything. The adjustable strap will keep you hands free and the sleek back won’t weigh you down at the concert or game.



Clear bag by Rebecca Minkoff

Leo Game Day Clutch by Rebecca Minkoff


While we like to be hand’s free at the game, we’re also a sucker for style. Rebecca Minkoff’s translucent clutch is just that.  The smoke and clear bag is stylish enough to for the ballpark or even a night on the town.  And while it’s high on style, the price is low making it a total winner.



Adidas Stadium Bag

Clear Mini Backpack by Adidas


When you’ve got a few things to carry and you want to keep it out of your hands, a stadium-approved backpack is handy, completely chic and uber practical. We love this one from Adidas for its street style and perfect size.  And with a zippered mini compartment and a zipper main compartment, there’s enough storage to keep your stuff safe.



Clear bag by Staud

Mini Leather and PVC Tote Bag by Staud


No you won’t get a hand’s free game day experience, but the Staud tote is so chic you may not want to put it down anyway.  The croc mini purse inside gives you some added privacy while the clear tote checks off all those stadium rules.  This is definitely one to wear before and after the game.



Clear belt bag by Mark & Graham

Clear Belt Bag by Mark & Graham


Fanny packs, aka belt bags, have come a long way since your dad totally humiliated you by wearing one to your high school graduation.  Nowadays, belt bags are what all the cool kids are wearing to the game.  We love this one from Mark & Graham, which has an adjustable and detachable strap so you can mix and match colors.
