Ask Kimmy: Can you Find Me an Inexpensive Black Cross Body Bag?!
Isn’t it funny how hard it can be to find basics, like a fabulous black crossbody handbag? So glad to receive this question today!
Budget: Yes, Under $200
Can you recommend a black cross body bag that’s not super expensive and not too much hardware? Thanks!
Without knowing what size you need and assuming it’s for daily life, I’ve rounded up some favorite, simple yet chic handbags that will have people guessing how much you spent!
For instance, Topshop’s Push Lock Cross Body ($70) has a smooth finish like Celine does, which gives it an eternally classic and somewhat dressy feel.
Or, opt for the slightly bigger Cambridge Satchel ($155). I love the top handle to grab when you’re on the go.
It was love at first sight at goop’s latest collab with Loeffler Randall. This stitched satchel is a smidgen bigger and has a few more subtle details ($455)
Madewell’s dual texture of pebbled leather and suede in it’s Frame toe with optional shoulder strap ($268) gives this sizable sack a bit of interest.
I also adore Fossil’s affordable, functional sized, super clean stylish crossbody. I actually spotted it in a store window and took a second take! It’s so chic and classic! ($148)
Finally, I know you said black? But it might actually make your bag all the more versatile to add in another neutral color like brown, grey, ivory, or in the case of this satchel from Anthropologie, olive. ($228)
