While the trending bag of the moment may be of the tiny under-the-shoulder variety, the crossbody reigns supreme for practicality, functionality and timeless style. The feeling of having both arms free to gesture, dance, hold drinks, hug people or browse the racks of your favorite boutique is unmatched. Plus, they add a pop of color and texture to your outfit in a front-and-center way that’s also totally effortless. This season, designers are playing around with luxe materials and unexpected takes on classic patterns: On an eye-catching mini bag, Burberry puts a spin on their signature check with shades of moss green and robin’s egg blue; at Bottega Veneta, the now-classic Casette is rendered in autumnal corduroy; and at Prada, the triangular logo shape gets blown up into a double zip pouch with sleek chain and leather straps. There are plenty of wear-forever classics we’re eyeing too, from The Row, Il Bisonte and Celine in particular. Shop all of our favorites below—here’s to a season of easy, hands-free everything.
