STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Check Out A Cross-body

A great purse is often the first thing that catches my eye when I see an outfit I like. From large tote bags to the smallest of clutches, purses truly are my guilty pleasure. I love how an outfit can totally change with the quick swap of a purse or even elevate the simplest of ensembles.

Recently, a major trend for purses is the cross-body bag. This style can be seen in many designers’ collections including Rebecca Minkoff and Tory Burch. What is so interesting about this specific trend in purses, is that it is a trend that fits so easily into many different styles of dress. From classic to boho, the cross-body bag has become a staple for people of all different fashion aesthetics.

So why exactly is this style of purse so popular? Well, this bag is great for many reasons but primarily how easily it translates from day to night. These bags are practical in that they are roomy enough to keep all of the essentials for the day, but the long straps give a more elegant feel that is perfect for a night out.

When I first spotted this Fashionista, I knew that she had nailed this trend perfectly. Her cross-body bag looks great paired with her dress and jacket for a night out, but will look great the next morning with jeans and T-shirt to grab coffee. This Fashionista pays attention to details with her monogram on the side of her bag, adding interest and making it truly unique.
