A good handbag can completely make your outfit. A crossbody purse, however, is extra special. Why, you ask? It's got the added benefit of convenience! Throw one on over your shoulder and your hands will suddenly be free to hold your cold brew (or a chocolate java mint frappuccino, if that's more your jam), send a funny meme to your BFF or swing your arms with wild abandon as you walk. And, with the turn of the season at hand, you've got a built-in excuse to invest in one of the best crossbody purses to match all your summer outfits.
Since these bags come in all different sizes, shapes and materials, the world is your oyster as far as choices go. Those carrying just the essentials can get away with a simple rectangular one-compartment crossbody (from $325), but if you prefer to be prepared for all possible scenarios, you’ll want to opt for a roomier shopper style ($350).
Then, of course, there’s the matter of material. Full-grain leather and canvas purses will last for what seems like an eternity, while animal-friendly faux leather will look great and ease your conscience. At the end of the day, it really comes down to your personal preferences. No matter what type you're into, you’ll find 20 incredible crossbody purses ahead.
