Cross body bags are on trend this season, but are they easier to carry than tote bags.
We caught up with oceanJ founder Gail to get her insights into both styles and we look at some cool blog posts that can help you get the best from your bag of choice.
“Bags, they come in all shapes and sizes, every possible colour and texture” says OceanJ founder Gail.
‘I’m often asked what’s the easiest bag to carry on the shoulder and what would be the best day to day bag. It’s a tough challenge to answer definitively as we girls have so many different reasons for the type of bag we choose daily.
There are some great blogs that can help you, here are a few of my favourite reads:
‘Personally I choose my bag based on what I am doing on any given day, but here’s a few hints that you may find of use:
For every day essentials
‘The cross body bag is perfect when you need to take day to day essentials out with you and don’t want to be laden down. Invariably, cross body bags have pouches to hide valuables, zip tops, padded straps, and are made from softer materials to help keep them comfy whilst carried over your shoulder. A must have when popping to the shops, or when you need to take just the absolute must have items with you. I love the collection from Drift available her at OceanJ, made from the finest leather off cuts that give them an old and loved feeling’.
For a night out on the town
A stylish over the shoulder handbag is a staple of any girls wardrobe. I always try to have a bag with contrasting details that add interest to my ‘night out’ bag and I really like how Powder Uk have created these delicate two tone bags that have an easy to wear strap that makes them comfortable and classic at the same time’.
Stylish and on trend totes
‘Every girl needs a statement bag and the classic tote continues to be the must have…. slung casually over the arm it’s never going to be the most comfortable bag but sometimes fashion has a price to pay and it’s worth it with the different styles and shapes of tote available. I’m a big fan of Katie Loxton bags, and our OceanJ followers are too, that’s why we have such a wide range on our site. my fave at the moment, ‘love life’ in it’s delicate pink tone, this bag has lots of space in it and is so on trend it is the absolute must have summer bag’.
In summary Gail says “totes, cross body, it doesn’t matter these days, designers take great care in making sure whatever your bag of choice is it is going to be comfortable for you to use”.
