Cross-body bags are the ultimate fusion of fashion and convenience. Small and sleek like your favorite smart bag, they also keep your hands free for working, shopping or eating. The fact that they are draped over your whole body makes them difficult to steal in busy urban environments where a handbag could be snatched. Have a look at our beautiful, colorful leather cross body bags to see which one could complete your look.
Small is Beautiful
If you really want to travel light, a cross-body wallet or organizer bag could be for you. It has all the advantages of a cute clutch, but you don’t need to put it down to hold a drink and canapé at a fancy soiree. Cross-body wallets/organizers have just enough space for your cash and cards, plus a few essentials like phone, keys and lipstick. They are perfect for nights out, or in addition to a wheeled carry-on bag for traveling. If you choose one like our Leather Organizer Crossover Wallet Bag, you can even remove the straps to carry it as a clutch by evening if you prefer. Measuring in at just 2.5 x 4.5 x 8 inches, it is really perfect for holding the essentials, but we also stock a slightly squarer version at 2.5 x 5.5 x 7 inches that could also hold a slim notebook or schedule if you need to have one on hand at all times for work purposes.
How To Wear It
There are lots of ways to wear our cross body bags for women. If you wear it low and tucked behind your back, it keeps the bag out of the way and almost looks like you aren’t wearing one at all. This works especially well with a slim dark or neutral leather strap, as on our small Ladies Leather Cross-body Bag in black and red. Another new trend spotted by blogger Kat Collings at WhoWhatWear is to wear the bag higher (around waist height) and right at the front of the body. The trend probably came about when fashionistas wanted to thwart potential pickpockets on the mean streets by keeping their bag close and visible at all times. However, it can look really cool, especially if you decide to go for a ‘statement’ bag like the Hand-painted Leather Crossover Bag in exotic summer. This one has a bold graffiti style hand-painted pattern, and straps that fade between baby blue and bright pink, giving an almost spray-painted effect. It is definitely a piece made for wearing front and centre with pride.
