After looking at fashion interior photos and realizing that cross-body bags are back in fashion, my heart jumped. Don’t get me wrong (I love the good bag with top handle or bucket), but the idea of having an extra free hand excites me. Think of all the possibilities! To carry my match latte without fear of spilling, to easily grab my subway card from my bag, to write with both hands instead of my thumb? The list goes on.
Not only that, but I think the cross-body bags are incredibly chic. With a shortened shoulder strap moved over both shoulders and a bag located directly under your chest, the style acquires a fashion twist, which distinguishes it from the unfortunate bags I wore in high school.
