A: The current use of "swag" is most likely to have come from the word "swagger": to conduct oneself in an arrogant or superciliously pompous manner. Basically, to walk with an air of overbearing self-confidence.
- So this meaning got carried over to a person's personality or attitude in general, which they imagine to be "cool and confident".

There is another meaning of "swag", which originates from the word "swag", which is completely different.

It used to refer to a bulging bag, now when a thief steals a bunch of items the stolen goods are defined as "swag" (imagine Santa's sack but a thief instead of Santa).
In the hip-hop era, "swag" refers to those "bling" (huge and shiny) necklaces/chains that would hang heavily around their necks.
- So sometimes when someone says "I got swag" it can also mean he has a lot of monetary possessions/bling. But majority of the time they mean the first meaning.
