Summer is just about to come to an end and a quick getaway was just what my household took, to celebrate its farewell. We ended our hot summer venture at one of the largest thrill and water parks in the nation. The sense of going highly fashioned to such a place is quickly disregarded, and instead all is focused on what handbag to wear. Hands down, you must take a hands-free bag!
I packed my Carlos Falchi snake-embossed cross body bag and the only annoyance I experienced was the fact that I had to carry multiple family members’ cell phones around. Cross body bags come with such diversity and in different price ranges, it only takes time to discover which suits your personality the best.
With that said, here are some of the latest: It’s no surprise that a Marc by Marc Jacobs piece makes our list with the Marc Jacobs Preppy Nylon Natasha. It’s a nice and clean style with an attractive U-shaped zip closure. Nylon with leather trim never fails to stay sturdy, but if you prefer an all-leather option the Vanity Cross Body by Rebecca Minkoff would suit you best. Not only does it feature all pebbled leather throughout, but is surrounded with tiny grommets at its trim, giving it a nice vintage touch.
If extra metal doesn’t work in your favor, Botkier’s Apollo Cross Body comes in a cleaner slate with a simple yet eye catching hook-and-eye detail. Washed leather gives off a nice distressed look and patent leather adds character to its forest green exterior. Last is a little something for the fringe lovers. JJ Winters Small Fringe Bag features an attractive fringe body that’ll fit your boho inspired look. There are three hues to choose from and it comes at an extremely affordable $165 for an all calfskin piece.
