For everywhere you go crossbody bags have become the most popular go to bag! They are the most useful and durable bag! They allow you to have your hands free while on the go, while carrying shopping items or strolling at an event with a cocktail in hand. The crossbody style is made with one long strap that crosses over the body with the bag section resting at the front by the waist. Keep in mind that a crossbody can range in size from a minimal carry to a larger roomier version. The size and style are a personal preference. I personally prefer a smaller crossbody (carrying the bare minimum) while shopping or dining out...how about you?
