Crossbody Bags You’ll Want To Throw Over Your Shoulder

Alanis Morissette had it simple. Our hands do more than sit in pockets, give high fives, or play the piano. They also answer your cell phone, hold onto piping-hot latte and fumble to swipe Metrocards, usually all at the same time. The fashion gods have smiled down on us with a slew of hands-free handbags, better known as crossbody bags. This spring, our trusty swing-it-over-your-shoulder-and-go friend has embraced every trend that we can't wait to get our hands on (if we had one to spare). From floral prints to bright colors, and shaping up in satchels, camera bags and super-roomy bucket bags, these options are not only crossbody eyecandy, but may be your saving grace when April showers roll around and an umbrella gets thrown into the balancing act. Peep through our fine bunch of crossbody bags that are undeniably chic and refreshingly convenient.
