9 Seriously Stylish Cross-Body Handbags To Buy Right Now
Travel light with a well sized cross-body bag for every situation
We’re singing the praises of cross-body handbags – the ultimate in convenience. They sling comfortably around the body, meaning you can traipse around town hands-free and navigate airport security with ease.Some come with built-in adjustable straps, while others transform from shoulder or top-handle bags with the swift addition of a detachable strap.
Several handbag designers, both local and international, have included cross-body styles in their new-season offerings. Whether it’s a party clutch with metal chain from Stolen Girlfriends Club’s decadent new handbag collection; See by Chloe’s classic mini-cross body bag for date-night essentials; or perhaps this luxurious yet practical Louis Vuitton number for carrying documents during the working week.
The options are wide and varied, and come in a range of tactile materials that work around the clock, because versatility and practicality is what a cross-body bag offers – whether you’re out on the dancefloor with a phone and a cocktail in each hand, or a multitasking mum on the move. – Dan Ahwa
