5 Crossbody Travel Bags I Love Right Now

5 Crossbody Travel Bags I Love Right Now

It’s no secret, I’m a sucker for a great travel bag, whether it’s a weekender duffle, a classic leather tote or my always-must-pack, a functional crossbody. And there are so many fun, affordable styles from sleek to sporty.  Here are five that I love right now:

1. Sherpani Rebel Coated Canvas Crossbody ($95.95 at Nordstrom.com)

I just ordered this bag, which is perfect for travel during the fall / winter seasons with its wax coating, helping give it the right amount protection against the elements, while helping maintain the structure of the bag.  The tan leather details shout a subtle contrast to soften the deep charcoal, and zippers & pockets for security and easy access make this a great choice for a go-to packable option.

2. Madewell, The Small Transport Crossbody ($128 at Madewell.com)

Leather satchels are one of my favorite travel staples. Even this small version of Madewell’s Transport Crossbody is roomie enough for your daytime travel essentials and it’s satchel handle is a bonus in my book. It’s the perfect all-season carry-all that, well, makes me want to book a trip to Europe to stroll historic alleyways and sip espresso at sidewalk cafes. Who’s with me?!

3. Free People City Distressed Belt Bag ($138 at FreePeople.com)

Guys, I’m not advocating the return of the fanny pack here (although, let’s face it, it has already made a comeback), but while these leather beauties are considered “belt” bags, the idea is wear them crossbody rather than around the waist.  And in that fashion, they become both contemporary and functional.

4. Caraa x Athlete Crossbody Bag ($98 at Athleta.com)

Sleek and sporty, this bag is so versatile! Throw it on with your tee and jeans or remove the strap and wear it as a clutch with leather leggings and pumps out on the town, this style can complement so many outfits that are perfect for a long weekend away. And it’s wipe-clean nylon material is both durable and packable.

5. Kate Spade Jackson Street Gabriele ($178 at KateSpade.com)

I always like to have a classic option for business travel and evenings out.  You can’t go wrong with the soft leather, clean lines and subtle hardware for which Kate Spade products are known. The Jackson Street Gabriele offers the security of zippers and ample room for essentials without taking away for the elegant lines.
