Cross-body bags are one of the most versatile bags in the market. Mainly, because you can wear them in any way you can imagine. As well, they can be paired with virtually any outfit and there are endless styles to choose from!

The key for fashion is to express your own personal style through experimentation and creativity. Cross-body bags are available in a variety of sizes, colors and shapes. However, the most common question remains in how to wear them. If that question is on your mind, we have 3 ideas for you!

1. On your hips: the classical cross-body style

This is probably one of the most popular ways to wear a cross-body bag. To achieve this look, you just need to adjust the straps on you shoulder so that your bag sits under your hips. This is one of the most natural and comfortable ways to wear a bag of this type.

2. The relaxing way: on your back!

To achieve this look you need to position the bag at the back of your body. This is a great option if you don't need to access the contents of your bag for a certain time and is a good option when walking for several hours.

3. Briefcase style

While most of the cross-body bags come with one or two straps, there are cases when a bag may come with one or two handles. If that’s the case with your bag, you may try to wear with your hands as a briefcase or messenger bag. This is a good option for formal occasions!
