Cross-body bags may be popular with the over 70-set, but they were popping up all over the spring runways, too. The best thing about them? These bags leave hands free for more important things like
texting, uh, reading. We’ve chosen our faves for every occasion below.
When you’re on the go
A mid-sized bag with a long strap won’t slow you down. Sling it over your shoulder and take it absolutely everywhere. The braided strap lends a boho vibe, but make it preppy by tying on a pretty printed silk scarf. Presh!

When you’re dressing up
A small, sleek bag is the perfect accessory to go with a light, floral dress. Choose one in a fun color to punch up your outfit. Beware—these tiny totes only have room to stash the accessories: cell, lipgloss, cash.
