Crossbody bags were a big trend in 2011. I remember last Christmas, all my friends wanted a crossbody bag as one of their gifts. A lot of my friends even gave crossbody bags to their girlfriends as gifts. I have to admit I hated crossbody bags last year. The fact that everyone was in on the trend and that they were so small was not appealing to me. Fast forward to 2012, and now I’m in love with them! I’m definitely someone that has always loved bigger handbags because I tend to carry half of what I own in my bag! It’s that serious! Crossbody bags are on the smaller side and give me a break from carrying a five pound bag around with me.
There are a lot of cute crossbody bags out there right now but one I really like is the Marc by Marc Jacobs “Katie” Bracelet Crossbody Bag. It’s very small but I absolutely love that the chain strap is versatile! Whether you decide to wear the chain long, doubled or tucked inside the bag it will always look adorable! Being able to style a bag in three different ways is kind of like buying three different bags and it gives you the ability to accessorize it with an array of outfits.
Overall, the “Katie” bag is a perfect bag to add to any handbag collection. Times are tough and whenever a bag is versatile, I’m instantly a fan. Not only is the “Katie” convenient but it’s also super cute too. I’m definitely a fan.
