Our Top Pick

Everlane’s The Form Bag is equal parts functional and stylish, with its sleek, minimalist design and sizeable interior — an interior so sizable, that it fits a 13-inch laptop horizontally. This doesn’t mean it’s bulky, though, as the Form Bag lives up to its name with its streamlined, near-dainty form. Made of 100 percent Italian leather, you’ll be getting good bang for your buck with this bag. It also features an easy magnetic closure and adjustable webbed strap, so you can wear it as a crossbody or on your shoulder.

Kate Spade knows how to craft gorgeous, streamlined bags, and the Margaux Medium Convertible Crossbody is no exception. Made from buttery-soft, refined grain leather, this bag’s slim silhouette belies its rather roomy interior and ample organizational storage that includes dual interior slide pockets, along with exterior slide pockets. Conveniently, this fashion-forward bag also converts into a clutch via an adjustable crossbody strap that clips off, so you can wear it on your evenings out. Simple, classic, and versatile, the Margaux will look good with virtually everything in your closet.

Treat yourself with the Half-Moon Mini Bag from Cuyana — a very splurge-worthy pick with supple, full-grain Italian leather, signature gold-tone hardware, and a clean, sophisticated shape. It may be an investment piece, but this crossbody bag will last and will only get more beautiful as the years go by, thanks to its high-quality construction that wears in and softens over time. Plus, add a monogram for a personalized touch and choose from six gorgeous colors, including Blood Orange, Black, Caramel, Forest, Stone, and Textured Black.

For traveling moms, the Baggallini Big Zipper Bagg is an incredibly convenient option for when you need a hands-free bag that’s lightweight, yet holds all the must-haves. It’s super spacious, with exterior zippers and interior pockets that easily house all your daily essentials like your wallet, keys, and phone. It’s also crafted from water-resistant nylon, so you don’t have to worry about stains (always a plus for those with kids).

Opt for this classic, Abroad Shoulder Bag from Madewell for a vintage-inspired look. Made from silky-smooth, vegetable-tanned leather that burnishes beautifully with wear, this simple bag comes in four attractive shades: Desert Camel, True Black, Distant Olive, and Dark Toffee. It’s still roomy enough to fit a tablet or book, while the super-adjustable strap makes carrying a breeze.

Step up your fashion bag game with the Botkier Cobble Hill Leather Crossbody Bag, a super-chic accessory that adds a funky, whimsical touch to all your outfits. The bag’s thoroughly modern appeal can be found in the details: its bright white color, gilded hardware accents, and an 80s-inspired, asymmetrical flap. Carry it via its top handle or woven crossbody strap.

Crafted from ultra-soft vegan faux leather and recycled nylon lining, the Erika Vegan Leather Crossbody Bag by Matt & Nat is elegant, luxurious, and best of all, cruelty-free.

Classy and sleek, this crossbody bag proves that the more sustainable, humane option can oftentimes be as fashionable as real leather alternatives.

Variety is the name of the game with the Leo Crossbody Bag from Anthropologie.

Everyone’s favorite backpack comes in a crossbody bag version, too: the iconic Fjallraven Kanken Sling Bag is made of durable, water-resistant nylon fabric that’s easy to spot clean, and the bag’s boxy, hip shape doesn’t droop or sag. Conveniently, your belongings stay super-accessible via the zippered pocket on the back. This bag comes in Yellow, Slate, Pink, Light Grey, and many other colors.

Come for the extra-durable ballistic nylon, stay for the extra-roomy interior: the TUMI Organizer Travel Tote for Men is built to last, and it’s crafted to hold all your essentials when you’re traveling, whether it’s just for the weekend or for an overnight flight. The bag’s main compartment expands by two inches, while the back zip-around section has multiple pockets and slots. All that, and its adjustable strap fits cozily on your shoulder, freeing up your hands while you’re on the go.

Frequent travelers may want to consider investing in a high-quality, anti-theft bag like the Travelon Anti-Theft Crossbody Bag, which boasts a bevy of protective, travel-friendly features, like a slash-proof shoulder strap, RFID-blocking slots for all your important cards, a removable LED light, and secure locking compartments. All in all, you’ll instantly feel more protected when wearing this bag. Not to mention, it comes in a wide variety of colors and prints.

Madewell’s classic Abroad Crossbody Bag also comes in a mini version. Made from the same superior-quality leather as the regular-sized Abroad bag, the Mini was designed with function in mind: it has both a sturdy handle and an adjustable crossbody strap. To top it off, the bag is still roomy enough to house your wallet and phone, despite its small size. Its Dark Toffee shade and structured look are nice to look at, too.
