We all love our oversized totes for work or shopping, but the perfect crossbody bag can bring an entire outfit together with minimal effort. Although a crossbody cannot hold nearly as much as our enormous totes, it can be the perfect accessory for touring and traveling. I personally own around four of these bags and plan to take every single one of them with me to London next semester. With a messenger bag I never have to worry about my hands being occupied so I have easy access to everything surrounding me and everything I could possibly need can be easily found in these little pouches. Crossbodys come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and price ranges, so there is a particular style out there for everybody. Their unique styles range from a casual, everyday bag to an elegant evening purse.
While wandering around town, I spotted this Fashionista showcasing her style in a pair of mint green shorts and an elegant pearl necklace, topping off the look with her dark green satchel. She looked simple and stylish with a hint of a preppy component from the pearl necklace and her mint green shorts contrasted nicely with the hunter green satchel. Wanting to imitate this look for myself, I immediately thought of Rebecca Minkoff’s crossbody bags, like this mint green, rugged leather crossbody paired with a pair of pastel colored shorts.
Next time you’re debating what to bring to work or a night out with friends, ditch that massive handbag and opt for a smaller, lighter satchel, perfect for the on-the-go lives we all must lead.
