If you’ve looked at the spring and summer handbag fashions, you may have noticed that many of them are crossbody bags. Not only is this type of bag stylish, it’s a really comfortable way to wear a bag, especially if you have rounded shoulders.
Before we get to the bargains, let’s review a few tips for wearing crossbody bags. Curvy women often prefer bags with thick, flat straps and flat bottoms that sit right at the hip. Experiment to find the perfect length for your body type. For all women, wearing thin clothes in the summer may make thin bag straps uncomfortable. Go for wider straps to distribute the weight of the bag in the summer and thinner straps during the cooler months when you’re wearing layers.
Now that you’re up to speed on how to wear them, let’s get to the bargains!
Kenneth Cole Reaction Wooster Street Small Flap Crossbody
You can find this brightly colored bag at Macy’s. Unfortunately, the biggest discount is only available through 4/27, but it’s still a bargain after Sunday at $35.99. Our favorite color is the bold, red Sunset, but the Saddle and Black colors are lovely, too. Note that this bag has a thin strap, but it is flat. The strap is also adjustable for a more flattering fit.
Mossimo Supply Co. Slouchy Print Crossbody Handbag
For a slouchy, casual look, try this handbag from Target for $19.99. It features a black and white print with a roomy, vertical compartment and a zipper closure. The strap is wide and flat (a plus), but unfortunately, it isn’t adjustable. Try this one on in the store if you can before making the purchase.
Chaps Signature Flap Crossbody Bag
If you’re shopping at Kohl’s online or in the stores, take a look at this Chaps brand handbag for $20.65. It’s a great bag for work with a flap front and silver-tone hardware. The strap is adjustable, reasonably wide, and flat. This style may bounce around a little on the hip, so make sure it hits in just the right area before buying it.
