How to Choose a Crossbody Bag

Materials

Think about what you will be wearing the bag with before you go ahead and purchase a crossbody bag.

Suede is very porous, and if you wear a suede bag with blue jeans you could accidentally turn the bag itself a blue color.

If you’re environmentally minded, it’s a good idea to research the manufacturer and find out more about their green credentials.

The best material to choose for a crossbody bag is full grain leather. This is because it's both stylish and durable, and it ages well (unlike canvas and other cheaper materials). All of the best bags are made from full grain leather.

Construction

The strap should be tough enough to bear the weight of the items you’ll be carrying. If you like to carry a lot with you, look for a strap that widens to the shoulder base and comes with extra padding. It’s a good idea to try wearing the bag with nothing in it to see how heavy it is.

You should also pay attention to the zippers, ensuring they are YKK quality to avoid breakages.

Monogramming Technique

It's important to understand how your bag will be monogrammed, in order to avoid any unwanted surprises. Choose a company with a proven history of laser engraving without damaging the final product.

FAQ

What are crossbody bags?

If you have a bag that has a strap long enough that you can drape it across your body from one shoulder to the opposite hip, this is a crossbody bag. Recently, manufacturers have been adding longer straps to many bags to ensure more styles can be worn in a crossbody manner.

Where should crossbody bags sit?

Crossbody bags should end in alignment with your hip bone. If your bag sites lower than that, it can appear rather heavy and messy. Nonetheless, there is no official right or wrong way to wear a crossbody bag. Just look for something that delivers all the comfort you need.
