The cross body bag is more structured and elegant this year. Go with a boxier design that dresses up your outfit. Wear it on your hip or with the bag sitting on your lower back area. Look for a cross body bag with metal hardware or a distinct shape.

The small bag is a fresh, new style this year. It’s just big enough to fit your phone, keys and maybe a lipstick. To wear the look, choose an interesting bag with some special color or ornamentation. Wear it cross body or as a pendant necklace, as Marc Jacobs and Tods showed on the runway image above.

Feeling adventurous and extremely fashionable? Wear more than one mini cross body bag at a time:

Accessorize your outfit further by selecting a cross body bag with a wide ornate strap. Wear the bag to your back to feature the beautiful detailing of your wide, ornate strap in the front. You can also update a current shoulder bag by adding a decorative strap to it and wearing it messenger bag style.

I’d be careful with a cross-body just around my neck. If it could be grabbed by someone. Actually any bag can be grabbed by an attacker. A bag solely around the neck seems especially dangerous.

But a cross body bag is actually one of the safest options 🙂 and Very comfortable too 🙂

What a tempting examples. I love so many of them. Only the chain strap does not have my love. I have several mini bags (Zara) with chain straps and they are not nice on your shoulder.
