The Coolest Bag To Wear Right Now? A Crossbody Of Course

The Coolest Bag To Wear Right Now? A Crossbody Of Course

Crossbody bags offer form and function. And who doesn’t want/need that double whammy? Here are five of the best to buy right now.

Elizabeth And James is one of my favourite labels. A sister label of The Row, but much less expensive, it gives customers a taste of the Olsen Twins’ beautiful aesthetic. I love the rectangular shape of this bag, as it’s practical for carrying mini iPads and notebooks as well as the usual paraphernalia.

I love the colour and texture that this tweed bag brings to an outfit. It’s a great way to liven up a plain ensemble.

I love masculine cuts and boyish accents so this crossbody satchel really appeals to my aesthetic. I would wear this with something quite feminine to create an interesting contrast.

Clasp detail crossbody bag, €47 at Warehouse

I love the burst of colour this pop of red will bring to any outfit. The gold detailing adds extra bling for a statement piece that comes with a very restrained price tag.

Lizzie crossbody tote bag, €29 at Topshop

This is the perfect evening bag for modern women. Big enough to hold your essentials but neat enough not to overwhelm your outfit, it looks much fresher for evening than a clutch bag.
