The Cool New Way To Wear A Cross-Body Bag

This may seem inane, but hear us out: it’s a fantastic way to pull your prime purse into the spotlight and makes the usually laid-back satchel feel that much more on point. To get the look, check out the shorter-strapped shopping options in this slideshow, or simply knot the strap of your current cross-body or use a ribbon to tie a section of the chain together inside the bag. But don’t just take it from us: let the stylish bloggers from Irina Lakicevic of A Portable Package to Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What show you how it’s done.
