Trend Report: Crossbody Bags

Trend Report: Crossbody Bags

A trend I’m still loving and one that’s still going strong is crossbody bags. Some call them messenger bags, others sling bags, but whatever you call them, just make sure you’re wearing the trend.

The thing I love most about these bags is how they just seem to make life so much simpler. They make shopping a breeze, because you don’t have to worry about where to put your handbag, they feel safe and secure whilst walking the street, they’re great for travel, hopping on and off an airplane, but above all, they are trendy and look so casual cool.

If you’re looking to find your perfect crossbody bag, make sure you check out the range at Woolworths. You’re sure to find your match with their selection of trendy crossbody bags in a variety of styles. They’ve even got a few leather options, if you love the style so much, it’s totally worth the investment.

Celebs like Claudia Schiffer, SJP and the likes of Sienna Miller, who is a big fan, have all been spotted wearing these bags. 1. Latch-Buckle Western Crossbody Bag (R225), 2. Blue Fold Over Crossbody Bag (R150), 3. Black Front Pocket Bag (R225).

You can wear these bags across the body and adjust them to where you want the bag to sit on your body. You can also wear them as traditional sling handbags like Claudia Schiffer wears hers. They are so versatile, what’s not to love?


RE: has a gorgeous perforated crossbody bag (R275) with zips and button pockets cleverly placed on the outside of the bag, creating smart storage options for your keys, cellphone and wallet. This bag comes in brown – which goes with everything – and also black.


White and tan are also great colour options for summer, and if you prefer to have a more sleek bag design, then these front zip bags from Studio.W are a great choice – R225.


For a good quality bag that also incorporates this season’s hottest colour blocking trend, check out the leather selection from Studio.W. I love the bright orange bag in genuine leather (R850). The same style bag comes in a neutral beige and classic black. Get them all! I’ve already got the classic black one, but I’ve got my eye on the orange one next!


For a night out, nothing beats this cute and sparkly crossbody bag from RE: (R180). It comes in a gorgeous metallic silver as well as a rich metallic copper. It’s the perfect little night out bag for you to keep your Blackberry and lip gloss. No more having to drag your bag along, getting it knocked off your shoulder at the bar or dumping it on the dirty dance floor just to enjoy a night out.


Another classic crossbody bag is this genuine leather one from RE: (R950). It’s screams boho cool, just like Sienna Miller. I love the trendy buckle detail, and the bag holds a surprisingly large number of items. Wonder if the kitchen sink would fit in there?

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s Trend Report and that you’re able to find your perfect crossbody bag. Remember all the bags featured above are available at Woolworths stores, and some of them via their very cool online shopping site. Get them before they are all gone!
