Cross body bags are the NEW fanny pack.
Not that fanny packs were ever really in. And not that they’re ever even out – take a trip to Disney World and look at all the middle aged men wearing them… Quick – clean up your vomit and I’ll tell you all about the versatile, chic & easy to wear version of them.
Honestly while traveling or going out, a cross body has become a huge staple handbag in my wardrobe.
It’s a constant win because you don’t have to hold it – Hands free is always for me. I don’t want to carry more things that I have to in my hands because I’ll probably spill my green tea on myself & singe my hand or ruin my silk blouse.
Cross-bodies mean no pain – AKA it’s not weighing down your shoulder. It can’t even weigh that much because you can’t load it with every item from your bedroom like your usual daily bag for work.
It’s the chic girl’s version of the fanny pack. Which I have to say I would not hate AT ALL!!! If it was at a music festival. I was dressed in neon and listening to electronic music for hours on end. It was questionable but worth it. I’ve done music festivals with Marc Jacobs as well and it doesn’t end well.
Enjoy a few of my Favorites
Most luxe: Chanel (give meeee)
