Accessory of the Season: The Crossbody Bag

Posted by Mignon's Treasures

As the first day of Spring comes and goes, so do we. Spring and Summer is the season of vacation and travel – but being on the go doesn’t mean you have to compromise style, functionality or security concerning your bags. 

The crossbody bag is the perfect bag for any season, especially during times of travel. Unlike regular totes, a crossbody leaves your hands free, while keeping belongings securely on you while you’re out and about. By wearing your purse across your body as opposed to being draped over your shoulder, it offers an added level of security while you’re sightseeing or shipping because it makes it difficult for a would-be mugger or pick-pocketer to steal from you. To go along with this added security, the crossbody’s form factor also allows for easy access. You can wear it diagonally across the body on your hip, or in front of you (for when you’re handling money, or grabbing your camera to snap a quick photo). 

Crossbody bags have become a staple for any wardrobe. They are a lightweight alternative and come in a wide variety of sizes, styles and colors, making them perfect for all ages (and sexes). However, it’s best to find a crossbody that comes with a zipper closure versus a snap. Keeping your bag zipped closed at all times will prevent anyone from slipping their hand in your bag to steal your personal items. 

When buying your bag online ( or in-stores, always be sure to buy one with an adjustable strap. This way, you’re able to adjust the crossbody bag to your specific height; keeping it securely near or above your hip. The size of your bag will depend on how much or how little you want to carry with you while you’re traveling. A small crossbody is ideal for those looking to only carry a few items (like money, cards, or a cell phone) where a larger messenger bag would be better suited for someone who’s carrying a large professional camera, or travel items like a jacket, makeup or travel books. 

With the crossbody, owners are asked to make no sacrifices, as its flexible and accommodating form factor fits virtually everyone. It’s practicality and usefulness are what makes it the best bag for travel!
