Crossing the Bag Trends

If there’s one thing I notice don the runway of the fall show, from New York, London, Milan and Paris, I saw the appearance of bags with cross body straps. Whether it’s a top handle with extra cross body straps, slouchy or structured and even a bag so small that can only fit your coins :)

I like the idea of a bag with cross body straps because it’s functional and when you have so much stuff with you, it’s just really easy to deal with. But I like the idea of having an extra strap with my top handle bag. So I can have the best of both worlds. And there’s this aura of effortlessly chic about having a bag slung across your body. Even if you’re wearing your utmost corporate look.

Some of the cross body bags that we’ve seen on this fall’s runway:

But I think everyone’s favourite will be Kate Spade’s, some of the bags from their latest show:

Don’t want to splurge? How about turning your eyes to the high street brands? Most of them already got these kind of bags in store. I like to browse through ASOS from time to time if I want to look for the latest trend since they have wide array of choices and brands. Most of these bags are what I found on ASOS and Topshop.
