History

The crossbody bag was originally seen in the 17th century in modern Europe. The bag was intended to keep coins and both men and women wore it. Moving into the 18th century, women wanted bags that weren’t so bulky, so “reticules” were created. Essentially, an early drawstring bag, these were created in different fabrics such as silk and velvet.

The modern crossbody bag was created during the Industrial Revolution when women needed appropriate bags to travel across the country.

Closures

Flap

The flap crossbody is a bag with a folding flap as a closure. Introduced by Chanel, the flap bag was a revolutionary addition to handbags with its chic appeal. It's effortless and a speedy option to move your personal items, when you are ready to swap bags. You can also wear it with a casual outfit if you want to look instantly pulled together.

Zipper (Zip)

Zip bags ensure that your most important belongings stay safe and sound and wont rustle or fall out no matter how much action your crossbody bags sees.

Drawstring

Drawstring bags, also known as cinch bags is simply a bag that is closed at the top with a drawstring. This is a sleek and versatile option that you can sport while running errands, headed to work, or a bottomless brunch with your friends. The assortment of fabrics available make this option a viable option for formal occasions. For example, a velvet or silk drawstring bag is a perfect option for a black-tie event or a wedding.

Details

Chain

A chain crossbody bag has a classic chain for a strap. Sometimes the chain is woven with leather, but sometimes the chain alone is the strap. This style is currently trending, especially the YSL signature chain bag which is the mark of a true fashionista.

Logo

A logo bag is a bag that features a brand’s logo splashed all over it. This brazen choice in bag wear is hard to ignore and definitely makes a statement. For an interesting combo, wear your logo bag with a distinct pattern.

Quilted

Quilted bags have visible stitching that makes the fabric resemble a quilt. Chanel’s signature bag is probably the most well known quilted bag, but many designers have their own version. This is a classy, chic and upscale bag style choice for work, drinks, or weekend errands.

Studded

A studded bag is a bag that has been decorated with spiky studs, thimble-shaped studs, or any shaped studded hardware. This is a great bag to wear with leather for a rocker chic look. It can also be worn with a feminine ensemble to make it more modern.

Embossed

Embossed describes when leather has a design imprinted on it. The best example of this is handbags that come in exotic skins such as croc, ostrich, or snake. They are actually a design that is embossed on the leather. It’s a more economical way to achieve a luxurious look.

Embellished

Embellished bags are bags with unique, often handmade detailing. This could include tassels, embroidery, beading, rhinestones or intricate stitching. There really is no limit to how far you can go with embellishments. Wearing an embellished bag is a simple way to instantly elevate and amp up your outfit.

Material

Leather

The color and detailing options of leather crossbody bags is unlimited. It is one of the most durable materials for a bag.

Canvas

Canvas crossbody bags are super chill and casual making them a perfect material for your more laidback ourtfits. However, just because they are breezy and nonchalent, does not mean you have to sacrifice or skimp on style. You can still pack a stylistic punch by opting for a logo crossbody bag, like the ones Fendi or Gucci offer.

Color

Black

A black crossbody is the bag equivalent of the LBD. A classic bag choice that can be worn with formal and casual attire, equally. This works well with a patterned sweater and jeans or against a camel colored coat.

Yellow (gold)

A yellow crossbody bag is a eye-catching color. Make your yellow bag front and center when you wear it with all white. Bring life and spice to your monochrome or black and white outfit. This is another sleek color for graphic and bold patterns as well. Stay grounded by wearing yellow with earthy tones. A gold bag is a glamourous option that does not have to only be restricted to the club or evening ensembles. Gold crossbody bags shimmer with denim or brightly colored ensembles.

Brown

Go earthy by wearing a floral maxi dress with a brown crossbody bag. Brown bags also compliment olive green so you can absolutely wear your brown bags with an army and/or military jackets, for a fashionable yet relaxed and chill combo. Following color combos that occur in nature, is a great rule of thumb and guideline when combining outfit colors.

Red

Red is always a classic and sensuous color, and a red crossbody bag is satorial bliss when paired with a black and white outfit. Make the red bag pop against a black or navy sweater dress. Or try it with a flowered pencil skirt and a simple white t-shirt pairing.

Beige

A beige crossbody bag is best paired with soft and feminie colors. It also stands out against denim outfits. For something out of the box, try to sport a beige bag with neon for a look that is truly fashion-forward, unique, and unforgettable. For a classic look, go for a beige blazer and white tailored pants with a white fitted knit top, and a white fedora.

Dark Blue (navy)

A navy crossbody bag shines with a navy outfit. Try it with a navy blazer or dark denim ensemble. For a smart look, try a navy bag with a cream ensemble. Cream jeans and a silk cream button down shirt with silver heels or flats, look striking when completed with a navy bag.

Light Blue

A light blue crossbody bag is best styled with a pastel outfit or an outfit comprised of shades of grey. It would look absolutely fabulous with a hot pink blazer, distressed jeans and statement tee.

Burgundy

A little more subtle than red, a burgundy crossbody bag stands out when paired with a polka dot print. It also looks exceptionally chic with a navy blazer, black leggings, black oversize sweater, and black knee-high boots. Be a little more adventurous and try wearing your bag with a gold metallic dress. Or combine it with bold jeweled tones or prints. A color block dress or sweater would be the perfect backdrop for a burgundy crossbody, especially when over-the-knee stretchy boots are added to the mix. A purple and pink tweed jacket also pair nicely with a burgundy bag. When worn with jeans, it's an elegant and clean pairing.

Nine West is an affordable brand option with simple, basic crossbody bags. At this price point, we so no reason why you should stock up on this fuss-free wardrobe staple with this brand.

Prada is undoubtedly a luxury option when it comes to crossbody bags. Their cahier bag is a small structured vintage style bag that is a nod to an old-school suitcase. This iconic lust-worthy bag will easily carry you from day to night.

Ways to wear them

  • Play with the length of your crossbody. Try tying a knot in it to shorten the strap and bring the bag up the body to make it the focal point of your outfit.
  • To that point, if you make it super short, it can serve as a bag and a pseudo-necklace.
  • Get creative and wear it around your waist like a belt bag
  • Simply wear it on your shoulder, instead of across the body. 
  • You don’t have to wear your crossbody in the front, shift it behind you, to fully embrace and embody a carefree outfit.

Trends

Crossbody bags are being done in a more elevated way so that they are not strictly limited to a casual aesthetic.

When it comes to bag trends, geometric shapes are huge. Circles, squares, and beyond, the trend is a remix on a structured, tailored bag.

Textures and colors are also trending with a strong emphasis on crochet bags and bright, neon colors.

Two is better than one. The “double bag” was debuted on the Chanel bag and it came in the form of a double crossbody bag.

Everything mini! Shrunken crossbody bags hit many runways recently. The impractical, but chic and “perfect for one night on the town” bags were seen in Carolina Herrara, Brandon Maxwell, Longchamp, Ulla Johnson, and Tibi shows.

Pop Culture

The hottest crossbody bag right now that celebrities can’t seem to get enough of is the old school classic Fendi baguette that has been updated with a long chain strap. This version has been seen on Emma Roberts and Amanda Seyfried.

The other popular crossbody bag is the Chanel “boy” bag, seen on Poppy Delvigne and Alice Dellal.

The Chloe “drew” bag is also another popular crossbody bag that celebs are heavily into. Blake Lively and Lorde were both spotted, shining in this style.

Look Forward

The crossbody bag is here to stay. It’s been a mainstay in fashion since it first arrived in modern Europe. The fashion industry will continue to evolve this functional bag to be a creative extension of one’s outfit by blending materials and reinventing ways to make it stand out.
