29 Crossbody Bags For Festival Season & Beyond

Even if the springtime glee hasn't hit you yet, it's time to slap on the denim cutoffs and fake it 'til you make it: Festival season is upon us. We hold our judgement on flower crowns and frolic around some outdoor venue, soaking in the music and long-awaited sun — if only for a weekend. Aside from the aforementioned headgear, there's one accessory that rules above all: the crossbody bag. 

It gives you a little peace of mind in the flurry of chaos that is a music festival: You may have lost your buddy in the flash tat-branded crowd, but at least all your belongings are in check. You may not be headed to the Coachella Valley this weekend. You may have slept through the pre-sale of every festival you had the faintest interest in. Nevertheless, we can all cash in on the convenience of a crossbody in our day-to-day.

Sling it across your torso and never leave your wallet at a coffee shop again; chase after a bus without manically grasping at the strap of your shoulder bag. It's the little things — namely, cute and compact bags — that make our lives a little bit easier.
