20 Great Crossbody Bags
Self

Crossbody bags are a great idea if you always have a bag resting on your shoulder or strapped across your back. Whether for work, school, or other activities, holding a heavy bag can cause stress and tension in certain areas, specifically your shoulders and back.

A crossbody bag, on the other hand, distributes weight better, and there are so many choices to choose from. You can find bags that are compact, just large enough for a lipstick and a phone or ID, or larger if you have more to hold.

The best crossbody bags are a great way to add a pop of bold color to your tried and true conservative work or school outfit. Plus, your back won't feel so achey anymore.
