Spring Trend: Cross-Body Bags

Crystal wearing Gucci BrittDo you remember when cross-body bags were something only your mother or grandmother wore? They were never all that cute and we sometimes cringed when mom proudly put it on over her sweater. There just isn’t a nice way to say “that bag looks horrible”. I am happy to announce that those days are over! Cross-body bags have returned with more style than ever. Most designers have created their own version for spring. In many styles, shapes and colors to choose from, we can give our hands a much deserved break and enjoy the freedom of a cross-body bag. Pictured on the left is the perfect example of how to wear a cross-body bag. Notice the ease of posing for the camera when you don’t have to adjust a bag to catch the right angle. If you shop for handbags with detachable shoulder straps, you can achieve the cross-body look and still have a second style option. Here are a few cross-body bags that caught my eye, which are available at Bloomingdales.
