Looking to introduce some edge to your look but still want practicality? A crossbody bag is your best option for functional style that keeps you hands free + looking good. We have 3 key crossbody shapes for you to discover, for this season + beyond.
Crossbody bags are enduringly popular, for their versatility + easy, hands free vibe. They can be worn as hip bags, slung low for a relaxed look, or worn higher on the body for a bolder, utilitarian mood. They can also be worn as shoulder bags - just shorten the strap and wear on the shoulder for a nod to 90s styling.
A crossbody bag can be dressed up or down, paired with everything from activewear to tailored staples to a dressy evening outfit. They hold just what you need without weighing you down + bring a spirit of lightweight ease to your daily adventures.
There's a range of silhouettes + styles to choose from when exploring the best crossbody bag for you - here's 3 essential petite shapes from our new collection that will take you from day to night + everywhere in between.
The High Road Mini
The High Road Mini vegan crossbody bag is petite with elongated design lines, tapering slightly at the top to bring an elegant, elevated edge to a very practical bag. It's structured + minimalist in mood.
It may be a small crossbody bag but it retains a generous sense of space in the interior, thanks to a separate front pocket designed to hold a large phone, leaving the main section clear for all manner of necessities. Explore our What's In My Bag video to see just what you can carry in the High Road Mini.
How to style:
Wear as a hip bag with the included strap, or mix it up by changing out the strap for a feature webbing strap to amp up the athleisure mood. You can also wear it higher on the body for a bolder look or sling it to the back. The High Road Mini is an elegant option for drinks or date night, and elevates a more casual outfit - with minimal effort.
The Bright Spark
A much loved silhouette with our SB community, the Bright Spark takes the energy of 90s belt bags / bum bags and reimagines it in a stylish crossbody. The functional, utilitarian feel is softened with luxe highlights in faux croc on the front pocket and strap + custom hardware details.
The Bright Spark can be a laid back crossbody companion for a day of errands, an injection of fashion fun to work wear, or a stylish finishing touch to a more glam outfit. It also makes a great choice for travel as your cash, passport + cards are secure in the large, zipped main compartment, yet still easily accessible for you. And it fits more than you'd think - check out our What's In My Bag video to get a realistic sense of what fits inside.
How to style:
The styling options are plentiful with the Bright Spark - it can be worn as a belt bag around the waist, or our preferred styling choice is worn high across the body to really bring some utilitarian edge. You can adjust the included strap to sling it low on the hip or flip it to the back, and adding a feature strap will add even more versatility.
Our newest shape is the Sojourn, celebrating a classic camera bag silhouette with luxe Sans Beast details - a beautifully tactile logo emboss, zipped front pocket for easy access, certified recycled fabric + custom gunmetal hardware. Its compact yet generous shape fits your phone, wallet, keys, glasses + more without feeling cumbersome.
The Sojourn's boxy shape keeps the interior open + roomy, with an extended zip along the topline allowing plenty of space to access your essentials. See our What's in My Bag video for a closer look at the size + capacity of the Sojourn.
How to Style:
Wear with the included adjustable strap to keep things monochrome + sleek, and wear it low for a casual look or higher for a more opinionated fashion mood. Both tones of the Sojourn come with gunmetal hardware, so add a Barricade or Corridor strap to build on your styling options.
