Leather Cross-Body Bags - the most popular handbag of the season!

As handbag design goes, cross-body bags have never been more popular and it’s easy to see why. These versatile bags can be worn comfortably across the body leaving hands free for other duties such as dog walking, shopping or holding onto excitable children. They also come into their own at airports where you might have a suitcase in tow.

If you’ve ever dropped your handbag and all the embarrassing contents have fallen out, you’ll appreciate how easy it is to carry a cross-body bag without having to worry that it might slip off your shoulder or escape your grasp. It’s also less likely that you’ll put your handbag down and lose it. Another distinct advantage is that carrying your bag so close to your body deters any pickpockets; in fact some of the slim fitting cross-body bags can be worn beneath your coat and hidden away discretely.

Fashionable cross-body bags are also great for night-clubbing and going to discos as they eliminate the need for putting your handbag on the floor and dancing round it. A well chosen, neat cross-body bag can look really cool with party gear.

If you need a bag for the workplace, there are cross-body bags and messenger bags which can carry laptops and iPads. In today’s market, cross-body bags come in all shapes and sizes to suit.

  1. Handbags became “The fashion Accessory” to complete any style or outfit. Although materials for the handbag were limited, the elegance of a well-made handbag could not be overlooked.
