Don’t you just love when fashion finally brings something fabulous AND functional? Doesn’t happen often, let’s face it. But the crossbody bag is all that. Practical; yes, but bringing more polish, more smarts than the unassuming, unpretentious backpack. Just the right size for at least purse, phone, lippy and maybe even a diary, while more manageable than a big tote. The hitherto humble crossbody bag is your new hands-free hero. Keep your purse close - and your hands free for your G&T.
Crossbody isn’t a new concept – possibly first seen at Chanel circa 1955 - but the new season brings a whole new breed of crossbody bags. Fashion meets form AND function, with a crossbody bag for every taste and every occasion. Some are roomier with longer straps – a staple for city breaks and shopping trips. Some will effortlessly cross from day into night out, with lux trims, statement straps and lush fabrics. All are resolutely on-trend.
Affordable and Exquisite
Affordably exquisite crossbody bags abound here at MyExquisite, where you can effortlessly elevate your wardrobe. We’re a little bit in love with Autumn’s plethora of rich, deep colourways and enduring animal prints; while the upcoming festive season finds metallics, shimmers and delicate chain straps. Thrown easily over the shoulder and under a coat for a classy wealth-stealth vibe or draped decoratively and delicately over the ubiquitous jeans-and-a-nice-top, and you’re good to go.
Top up your glass and have a look at some of our favourites.
Feast your eyes on the spectacular range of colours that Camila offers. With thirty options, each as beautiful as the last – rich deep autumnal shades such as cinder and purple, statement brights like fuschia and pretty pastels (oh! That duck-egg blue) ideal for weddings and race days - you are literally spoiled for choice.
A clean shape formed from supple Italian leather and tassel trim, with room enough for your essentials and a nod to luxury, the Camila crossbody bag is an instant classic. Our Evie brings equally uncomplicated lines, in deliciously classic colours.
The amply-proportioned Windsor saddle bag could just be your new BFF. Soft Italian leather – standard – meets 17 stunning colours. The adjustable strap offers flexibility while the dual fastening is reassuringly secure.
The Windsor’s enduring shape and style is given an uplift with jewel brights and edgy metallics – stunning colours which will go with anything and take you from season to season, year on year.
Our sleek and effortlessly stylish Eliza – in four equally elegant colourways - beautifully bridges the gap between Camila and the Windsor. Practically perfect in every way, with Eliza, practicality meets pretty for day or night.
There’s a chic and stylish tassel detail plus a nice, secure zip as well as a popper, along with a zipped interior compartment.
Clutch or crossbody? In the best, buttery Italian leather our little Lia bag is just ravishing. In a variety of radiant colours, Lia has a detachable chain strap and will grace any outfit for any occasion – simply perfect for the party season. Sophisticated gold-tone hardware adds to the elegance and there’s room for a coin purse, keys, phone and a lipstick or two.
Lia is structured and the leather strokably soft but not at all slouchy. The only problem is which of the myriad colours, prints and finishes to choose. We’re having three. Or four, maybe…
Chloe brings a similar style and offers more make-up, purse, and folding ballet pump space. This makes Chloe the perfect bag for your big days and nights out. My favourite navy proved popular and the sunshine-yellow and pillar-box red bring a refreshing zing of colour to the dullest of days.

A range of perfectly-proportioned purses will make your chosen bag even better… We could wax lyrical all the live long day on the merits of these multi-tasking wonders. Suffice to say we love them and wear them too - and we want them all! Which is your favourite?
