STYLE: HOW TO WEAR THE BRIGHT SPARK

The Bright Spark vegan crossbody bag is fast becoming our most popular style. Let's talk styling this maestro of versatility.

The Bright Spark is a compact yet roomy crossbody bag with a bold, utilitarian spirit. It's been a signature style in our last 4 collections, embraced by lovers of versatility as a practical belt bag made modern.

This is not your traditional, cliched 90s belt bag. Made from GRS certified recycled fabric + trimmed with faux croc highlights + custom hardware, the Bright Spark fuses fashion + function, and is polished enough to dress up or down. Yes, you can wear it around your waist + call it a bum bag or fanny pack - whatever takes your fancy - but we like it styled crossbody for work or play.

It's a great choice for travel, as it keeps your important items securely close + within your easy reach. There's plenty of room for your passport, wallet, phone + essentials, and it goes with anything - so if you only take one handbag on holiday, this is the one.

Thoroughly elevated + androgynous, the Bright Spark is definitely a bag for everyone. Watch our What's In My Bag film to see what fits inside + read on to see how the Sans Beast team style their Bright Spark:

Styling the Bright Spark crossbody bag:

Wear high across the front 

We adore the utilitarian edginess of wearing the Bright Spark high on the torso. Keep it front + centre for easy access to everything you need. This is especially helpful when travelling for keeping items secure yet easily accessible.

Wear lower on the hip or sling on your shoulder

You can wear the Bright Spark slung lower on your hip for a relaxed mood, or forgo crossbody altogether and wear as a shoulder bag. This works for casual outfits + also for a more formal ensemble like tailored pants or suits. We told you it was versatile.

Wear to the back

Go all in on the luxe athletic vibe by slinging your Bright Spark to the back. It's a great styling option for days on the go + a versatile, compact alternative to traditional backpacks.

Add a feature strap

Change up the styling mood by adding a feature webbing strap. Keep the included thinner strap for when you want things sleek + monochrome, then swap for a webbing strap when you want a bolder, sportier look or just want to add an extra element to your outfit.

Go big with the Super Bright Spark

The Super Bright Spark is sized around 30% bigger than the original iteration + comes with a Barricade strap included. Giving all the athleisure vibes you could want, the Super Bright Spark has a generous interior and an extra zipped compartment on the front. Check out our What's In My Bag film to explore the Super Bright Spark + play with styling it your way.
