A few of you asked for a post on crossbody bags that are on the substantial side, which makes the assignment slightly more challenging, as crossbody bags skew small, and who knows why. All of the following measure at least ten inches, which to my mind feels big, if not gargantuan. I love the look of this Coach saddle bag in navy, which is nice and unexpected.
Clare V’s messenger bag can fit a small laptop, is super-lightweight, and comes in lots of colors, but I like this snakeskin version best.
I have wanted a duffel-shaped bag forever, and this one from Derek Lam is just impossibly good. I am sitting on my hands to keep from ordering it.
Just a nice big bag—it measures 11 by 11—this one seems perfect for travel.
I like the poppy green hue here, and the fun exterior pocket.
Another really big bag, with a great hobo shape.
This one is both fully reversible and rings in at under $50.
