If there’s one thing that rates highly in my book it’s and bag that allows you to go handsfree. Whether it’s being out and about running errands or travelling, I always like to keep my bag choice to either anything I can wear crossbody-style or a backpack, so I’m comfortable, agile and not fussing around with straps or trying to balance everything. I had a reader question pop up a few weeks ago asking for some recommendations for crossbody bags so I decided to round a few great options at every price point, and to suit every occasion. From dressy to casual cool, here are some great bag options that will ensure you’re ready to tackle whatever the day throws at you.
I’ve always been a big fan of the bucket bag because it’s a great shape and quite roomy, too. I’ve always found it to be able to hold all my essentials, and it can easily be worked back with multiple looks.
I like embracing textural elements to add an element of interest to an accessory and these are just some of the ways it can be done. Whether it’s quilted design or a lovely herringbone pattern, it takes an bag from something utilitarian to a decorative piece worth showing off.
Every woman needs a classic black bag in her collection. These crossbody bags are all varying shapes and sizes, but in such a classic colour, they’re become a mainstay in any wardrobe. Plus you can easily dress a black bag up or down which makes it ultra versatile.
Don’t dismiss the crossbody style as being just daywear! You can totally do this style at night, but look for elevated features such as a chain strap or embellishments to dial up the glam factor.
If you want to invest in a bag that’s not only comfortable but will last, you can’t go wrong with a crossbody bag from the major high end fashion brands. The construction is always impeccable, the fabrication and hardwear on point and the designs have a luxe vibe that add to their appeal.
Soft, relaxed styles are great, but don’t overlook the slightly more structured options when it comes to crossbody bags. They look sleek and sophisticated and will give any outfit a polished feel.
