The 6 Cross-Body Bags You Can't Miss This April

Fashion has the power to instantly lift the spirit, and, let’s face it, we could all use a bit of escapism right now. As legendary fashion designer Coco Chanel once famously said: “Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” In this issue, showcased in all their effortless glory the spotlight is shined on cross-body bags.

From neutral tones, to wow factor dreamy shades of pastels, these bags evoke both a sense of optimism and timeless elegance. April styles take the guesswork out of spring shopping.

The Cross-Body Name

Handbags are normally classified primarily by the type of strap/handle they have, and secondly by their shape and style. The term ‘cross-body’ refers to any bag that uses a longer strap so that it can be worn across the body.

The inspiration behind the idea originates from the mission to provide people with bags that could give them the ‘hands free option.’ The hands-free concept was also used by messengers or postman as far back as 1860, when the Pony Express mail service adopted the familiar style of wearing a bag across the body for their employees to carry letters and parcels.

The Hero

Firstly, the cross-body is very comfortable as the strap distributes weight between the shoulder and back. This can defiantly be handy especially if anyone who may have back issues.

Secondly, the cross-body bags have that hands-free advantage and the size of the bags provide you with more functionality, making them perfect for everyday use. These features are ideal that help make this bag a prominent part of the handbag industry.

The Piece That Will Transform Your Wardrobe

Nothing captures everyday vibes like a unique and distinctive take on this iconic style of handbag. Cross-body bags are usually considered to be a casual and everyday bag made with either waterproof materials or leather. These luxury materials are suitable for both glamorous occasions and everyday use, demonstrating their coveted versatility.
