6 Crossbody Bags for Going Hands-Free this Fall

We’re busy people juggling a million different things everyday. Think about the number of things you hold in your hands on a daily basis – groceries, shopping bags, kids, life. There just isn’t enough room, or extra hands, to carry more than you already do. That’s why I fell in love with a hands free bag that made my life 100x easier. Crossbody bags are the best way to get through your full day of errand running and child wrangling. I usually prefer these to the cutest satchel because of its ease and versatility. An simple bag that helps streamline our day-to-day is crucial.

Crossbody bags are not new to the scene. They date bag way further than you’d think. The real changes made to these bags are their silhouette, color, length, and texture. Easy in nature, this style of a deconstructed satchel allows us to text on our phones, scroll through Instagram, and sip our coffee all while racing to work. If you are a girl on the go with a handful of essentials, a crossbody is a necessary staple. Every bag collection should include a cool, convenient crossbody style. Much the same as having a LDB in your closet, a crossbody is a must-have, especially for Fall.

What makes these bags an important addition to any wardrobe is they can pair with almost any shoe! Crossbodys and flats are the peanut butter and jelly of accessories for Spring/Summer. I paired mine with leather riding boots and a sweater to create an effortless, stylish and comfortable outfit. Both shoe ideas pair with this bag perfectly so don’t be afraid to mix the looks.

Every influencer has a signature piece that defines her personal style. Over the years, I have purchased my fair share of easy-going crossbody bags. Very different than my love for straw tote bags and the strange but incredible clear handbags, crossbody bags are my go-to.

Can My life fit into a crossbody bag?

I will full admit the majority of my bags come from my FabFitFun boxes and I promote them proudly. During Summer, FabFitFun partnered with Lionel to release their Javanna crossbody (Similar) bag in beige that I grabbed without a second thought. What I love about this bag is it faux straw exterior and smaller canteen-esque body type. Crossbody bags force you to downsize from your overflowing tote. They make you look hard at what you carry around and make decisions of what to leave behind. Sort of like Spring cleaning for your handbag.
