I know many of us ladies get tired of dragging around an enormous bag that is filled with all of our essentials. But sometimes it just feels great to carry just a few items at a time. That is why all ladies can agree that a small cross-body bag is the perfect accessory.
The best part of having a cross body bag is that depending on the style it can be dressed up or down. If you have a nice patent leather bag you can dress it up with a formal skirt and top for a dressier occasions or wear it with a pair of skinny jeans and a cute top.
There are literally a million places to find the perfect cross-body bag. Of course I always suggest going to vintage stores. You might be able to dig up some really great styles or maybe even find a real leather bag for less. Aldo is one of my personal favorite stores to find great handbags that are not only stylish but made from good quality as well. Urban Outfitters is another great store to find cross-body bags especially if you are a big fan of the fringe trend.
You can find the perfect bag that reflects your style easily. If you have a sophisticated sense of style, try a quilted chain bag or if you love the punk look go for a studded black bag. The possibilities are endless so start searching Fashionistas!
Spotted: Mulberry’s fall 2011 ready-to-wear show incorporated all types of different handbags. The cross-body chain bag that was showcased is called the Carter.
