There’s one particular bag that has taken the fashion world by storm, from runways to the streets. Say hello to the cross-body bag, which is no longer just a fad, but a staple.
If you’ve thrown away your cross-body, don’t worry. Now is your chance to catch up because they are trending again this spring and easily available. Not that they ever went out of style; they’re just back in more sizes, styles (fringed, textured), silhouettes (satchels, circular, fold over), prints and colours.
Functionality, depending on your lifestyle, is the key factor in buying a perfect cross-body bag. Yes, it is a trend, but we absolutely love how practical and convenient it is. Completely hands-free, it allows you to carry on with other things and is perfect for everyday use.
FYI: This season, the new trend is carrying a mini cross-body that fits just your cell-phone or lip-gloss such as the Fendi peek-a-boo cross-body. Some people are even carrying more than one!

Some of our picks from the runways to the stores (and, how we wish, our closets!)
Alexander McQueen: This padlock cross-body can be considered a classic shape, with an edge, thanks to the iconic McQueen skull.
Valentino: We love the added touch of the rock studs that distinguish the brand.
Chloe: The Marcie cross-body bag is adorable and wearable for all occasions. As is the colour block Rosita bag.
Givenchy: The mini Pandora box cross-body is a classic, but is also available in different colours and prints.
Mulberry: Pretty and perfect for spring/summer with floral detailing and scalloped edges.
Dolce & Gabbana: Miss Glam bag, which shows the season’s hottest shape and texture.
Whether you’re headed for a film or a party, these bags and their convenience will keep your look stylish and give you freedom of movement. So, for now, say goodbye to the totes and clutches. This season it’s all about the favourite cross-body bag.
