You are on Team Crossbody if you sport a crossbody bag all or most of the time. You are on Team Any Other Bag if you don’t. Note that any type of handbag counts for Team Any Other Bag. You are also on that team if you don’t carry a handbag at all.
I bat for Team Crossbody, but this was not always the case. I used to find crossbody bags uncomfortable on my neck and shoulders. I got annoyed with the body of the bag on my hips. But the devil is in the detail. After figuring out the types of crossbody bags that work, the types of straps that are comfortable, and making sure that I don’t pack everything and the kitchen sink into my bags, I am as comfortable as can be. I wear crossbodies 99% of the time because I’m on foot and need my hands to carry other things like groceries, dry-cleaning, packages to return to the post office, and our Yorkie Sam. I LOVE how practical they are. Aesthetically, I also think crossbody bags look great.
Fortunately, all my satchels and clutches convert to crossbody bags so I have the option of sporting them with or without a strap. I also have an assortment of guitar straps that attach to the satchels making them even more comfortable.
Over to you. Do you bat for Team Crossbody or Team Any Other Bag. Tell us why, and no batting for both teams. If you can’t pick a side, sit this one out on the bench where there’s sushi and South African malva pudding in takeout boxes to eat in the safety of your homes.
