20 Perfect Cross-Body Bags

Scroll through above for our favorite cross-body bags! 

We have to carry a lot on a daily basis: our wallet, magazines we’ve been meaning to read, our metrocard, a hairbrush, makeup for touchups, headphones – the list goes on. Needing to schlep so much stuff around the city doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice our style for functionality, though. The trick is to just find a bag we love that has a little extra space, one we can throw on without having to think twice. Enter the cross-body bag. It’s roomier than a clutch, chicer than a tote, and infinitely easier to carry than a top handle bag. Scroll through above for our favorites; consider the cross-body bag your new staple.
