Lately, I’ve become obsessed with cross body messenger bags, and for good reason, not only are they a timeless addition to your wardrobe, but they’re also uber-functional. The hands-free design is, well, handy—a true life-saver for me as I make the rounds in New York City every day. I can only imagine that anyone else would feel the same, no matter where they live. The design also happens to come in an array of sizes, too. Check out three of my favorites here.
Linea Pelle Dylan Mini Cross Body bag, $195, lpcollection.com.
I love the smaller size of this bag—plus, the adjustable strap is removable so you can carry it as a clutch, too. And the fine Italian leather will last you for years. Also available in moss and sand.
Fossil Vintage Re-Issue Flap Crossbody bag, $158, fossil.com.
This leather style is a classic with its iconic saddlebag shape and turnlock closure. The belt buckle strap is also adjustable, and the interior boasts multiple pockets for your keys and other essentials. Also available in black/brown, camel, and red.
Melie Bianco Maurissa Carry All Messenger, $96, meliebianco.com.
This satchel also has a top handle, giving you the option to carry it another way. (But then again, why would you?) The 14-inch-by-11-inch frame is also roomy enough for the bulkiest of cargo.
Which one is your favorite?
