The crossbody bag is the most practical way to carry a purse. It is based on the original messenger bag concept where a bag is carried on a long strap that crosses the body and hangs at hip height or below. It can be such a girly look too, if we opt for a cute clutch style bag on a long chain. Or give it the hipster twist with a crossbody bag that has fringes or tassels. Last summer, Tumblr was full of pictures of our favorite celebrities sporting great bags that hang easily at the side and can carry so much. What is there not to love about such a practical choice that looks really great too?
