Packing for Paris: The crossbody bag is a must in the suitcase.
The crossbody bag is so useful on any trip; during the day for all those small valuables that are needed close to hand and again in the evening as an alternative handbag choice. I often wear a crossbody and carry a handbag at the same time but as I have mentioned to you before, I am a bit of a snail and carry my “home on my back” much of the time.
It is a practical style and the crossbody bags that I prefer are those that fit my cc’s, lipstick, phone and keys with a little room to manoeuvre if I can’t pare down.
Packing is one of those skills that morphs into an art over time. I have to have routine in my bag with selected items that I enjoy wearing and I know will work. Packing is not the time to experiment with looks and whenever I have, those pieces have stayed in the bag. Always.
I do have regrets from time to time and often think about what’s at home and not in the bag but when I travel, wherever I travel, I want to spend my time out and about and not thinking about what to wear.
That is why I take a crossbody bag on my travels.
This past fashion week in Paris saw an abundance of crossbody bags in all shapes and sizes and it has put me in the mood to find a new one. They look stylish and flattering whether worn across the body or simply hanging by the side.
I do love the Chanel and the Drew from Chloe, the one that seems almost a uniform this season, but I also think some of the less expensive models are seriously fabulous right now. Great style is knowing how to get the mix just right.
Are you practical like me and always opt for the black? Don’t forget to pack one of these in your travelling bag… xv
