Summer Must-Have | Cross Body Bags

Cross body bags come in handy on those days when the oversized handbag is a drag. Not only is the cross body bag a chic alternative to handbags and shoulder bags, the mere design of the it distributes the weight of the bag, giving your shoulders and back a break.

During Spring 2010 presentations, models strutted down the runway with an assortment of cross body bags. Louis Vuitton sent models down the catwalk with large cross body bags adorned with tassels and fur tails. Models on the Marc by Marc Jacobs runway rocked vibrant, mini cross-body bags.
A cross-body bag doesn’t necessarily have to be worn across your body. Wear it as regular shoulder bag or tuck in the strap and carry it as a clutch. Cross-body bags aren’t limited to the messenger bag look either. Unique shapes, chain link straps, grommets and other details give the cross-body bag some personality.
