Upon perusing fashion-insider photos and finding that crossbody bags were back in style, I felt my heart skip a beat. Don’t get me wrong—I love a good top-handle or bucket bag, but the idea of having an extra free hand thrills me. Think about all the possibilities! Carrying my matcha latte without fear of spilling, grabbing my metro card from my bag with ease, texting with two hands instead of one thumb… The list could go on.
Not only that, but I deem crossbody bags incredibly chic. With a shortened strap thrown over my shoulder and the bag positioned directly under my chest, the style takes on a fashion twist, differentiating it from the satchels I wore in middle school.
