Crossbody bags are having a bit of a moment right now, and I’ve been in love with them for years. They’re easy, effortless, hands-free, and give off this too-cool-for-school vibe.
Some of my favs:
1. Fossil Sasha Crossbody ($110)
2. Marc Jacobs Asa Crossbody ($650)
5. Burberry Vintage Canvas Crossbody
A crossbody in a neutral color will carry you season to season, year after year. I love the rich luggage color of the Fossil, how soft and lady-like the leather of the Marc Jacobs looks and the preppy-messenger feel of the Burberry.
3. Rebecca Minkoff Stud Rocker Crossbody ($330)
4. Botkier Moto Crossbody ($295)
8. Olivia Harris Studded Baby-Ball Crossbody ($300)
Rebecca Minkoff is a bag-designing baller, and I love the studs on this bag. The Botkier has that typical Trigger-feel, but the dove gray softens the edge. This Olivia Harris is so much fun– from the shiny patent to the tassel detail.
7. Foley + Corinna Disco City Bag ($200)
11. kate spade Darien Thomas Crossbody ($155)
12. Mulberry Alexa Bag ($1040)
I love a blue bag. Love a blue anything, really. I actually have the Foley + Corinna bag showcased here and it’s a solid go-to for nights on the town when you’re juggling a drink in one hand and a digital camera in the other. The leather is soft and I adore the tiny foldover handle that’s become the F+C trademark. This kate spade is really chic, and the elongated shape makes it quite Ivy League. The Mulberry Alexa is named after Alexa Chung, a British hipster and television personality with killer LDN style. The blue pops against the gold hardware, and I love the simplicity of the its shape.
6. Rebecca Minkoff Love Letter Satchel ($495)
9. Kimchi Blue Linen Bucket Bag ($48)
10. Nine West Drawstring Bar Crossbody ($69)
Rebecca Minkoff makes another showing with her Love Letter satchel, which I love for its diagonal zippers and tassels. The watermelon color punches things up a bit, too, don’t you think? Kimchi Blue is a great line (love their dresses and cardigans, too), and this bucket bag is the perfect dose of summer-prep. The Nine West bag is fabulous, with all-over studs and a cute puckered shape.
