Juggling a bag when running around trying to manage your busy schedule never feels right. In both fashion and life, I'm going for the effortless look. So a bag that I can wear without any hassle is always a winner for me. When the crossbody bag became a trend, pretty much everyone rejoiced. I love a good top handle but, what's better than being hands-free? Literally, it's the best feeling no matter who you are or where you're going, you just have to love it. 

I know where to find a good bag so you're in the right hands. The best in luxury and affordable finds lie ahead whether you carry it all or just bring the essentials. I'm pleased to announce that you won't regret buying any of the below crossbody bags because they're seriously the best. So let's load up our carts together and find a new style that is coming with us everywhere on the weekends.

1. Saint Laurent Kaia Leather Crossbody

Itty bitty crossbody bags are having such a moment, so let's start there. You might not be able to carry much more than your airpods and a credit card in this but it will make any look instantly chic.

2. Tory Burch Lee Radzwill Bag

Another bag I've had my eyes on for some time now is the Lee Radzwill. It's a timeless silhouette and exquisite details are inspired by the just as stylish younger sister of Jacqueline Kennedy. The bigger sizes can fit a laptop for your weekday errands.

3. Chloé Judy Crossbody Bag

Slouchy bags have my heart right now. The Judy by Chloé manages to look elevated and relaxed at once—that's the look I'm going for. Its big sister that comes in tote form is worth taking a look at as well. 

4. Jaquemus Le Chiquito Bag

Once an it-bag, always an it-bag. The iconic Jacquemus Le Chiquito Bag is never going out of style. It comes in so many cute colors and fun shapes now that I think everyone should have it.

5. Mansur Gavriel Cloud Leather Clutch

Like a cloud, this crossbody bag is quite dreamy. Mansur Gavriel has nailed the minimalist look that I'm obsessed with in this clutch that also has a great crossbody strap. I'm here for it.

6. Neous Pheonix Bag

This bag is currently at the top of my wishlist. It's the perfect size to carry everything that I like to bring along with me on the weekends, maybe even a good book. The gold hardware and thin strap look so luxe—because they are.

7. Staud Ria Crossbody

Staud has done it again. We know them for popping out an It bag every single season, and I know this one will be next. Since you can wear it as a crossbody or a top handle bag, there are a lot of options.

8. Saint Laurent Toy Loulou Crossbody Bag

I've had my eyes on the Saint Laurent Loulou for quite some time, and good news, it's still having its moment. It feels as soft as a pillow and the iconic fashion house's logo makes an instant outfit-maker. 

9. JW Anderson Chain Lid Bag

A heavy gold chain has never steered me wrong, so I'm letting it guide me to this JW Anderson bag. I just love how it looks like a mini backpack turned crossbody bag. Fill her up.

10. Gucci Mini Shoulder Bag

I can't get over how good this bag is. It's small but mighty and makes for a great item to bring with you if you're headed to the dance floor or wrestling a heavy project. Any moment that you need to be hands-free, this Gucci bag has got you. 

11. Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Shoulder Bag

You'll rarely see a street style moment during fashion week without a Bottega Veneta bag being involved and that's for a good reason. The striking design is one that can't be missed and feels so right now.
