The cross-body bag is fashionable and smart. This one is small and easy to wear, with the security of having the strap to wrap around your shoulder. Like most small bags it comes with a wrist strap as well, and the shoulder strap is removable, making it versatile enough for nights out. Citrus colours are popular on the runway right now, and tassels never go out of style. This colour is almost as versatile as any neutral, but will give an outfit a more spring-ready look.

 

 

 

2Marc Jacobs—The Large Single $895.00

This bag is available in a variety of colours, each accenting the pretty quilting of the goat leather. The chain accents on the shoulder strap give the bag a feminine look, with a little bit of edge. It’s another bag that is night-out ready but sophisticated enough to bring to any important meeting. The size of the bag is perfect, but the handle is a little on the delicate side, so overloading the bag should be avoided.
