There are so many types of bags out there. From small wristlets to massive Mary Kate and Ashley Olson-style totes that can basically double as weekender bags, a crossbody bag is the perfect in-between that makes it an essential. Chances are that you have several of them, or at least want a few on-hand to match with all your outfits.
Crossbody bags are the perfect go-to bag you grab as you’re rushing out the door. They range in size, but are, for the most part, compact enough to be lightweight but large enough to hold all your essentials, from your phone, wallet, and AirPods case to possibly even a book or some snacks. What makes a crossbody bag so great is that it allows you the ability to be completely hands-free, so you can carry an umbrella or talk on the phone seamlessly.
They’re great for safety while traveling, too—it’s way easier to conceal your belongings in a crossbody purse than a regular hand purse or tote. Even activewear brands like Lululemon and Adidas make crossbody bags ideal to wear during workouts or on day hikes. But what fashion lovers will appreciate most about crossbody bags is that they can seriously upgrade or transform an outfit. A simple jeans and tee look is easily elevated with a brightly-colored crossbody.
See below for 27 of the best crossbody bags in 2022 for any outfit, style, or budget. Yup, there are some *serious* steals on this list, including a seriously chic $20 crossbody—don’t be surprised if you end up grabbing a few.
