Trend report: Cross-body Bags

March 3, 2017

There's one trend that you couldn't miss on the catwalks of this season's fashion weeks that we absolutely adore. Cross-body Bags. It's nothing new, but this subtle trend is taking its turn in the spotlight and we can't get enough of it.


Dotted throughout Ready to Wear AW17 shows, cross body bags were like the practical garnish on top of the flamboyant cake we call London Fashion Week. The ability of a cross-body bag to become an integrated part of an outfit is one of the things we love about them - they don't look like an add on or an after-thought, they fit in as if they belong there. 


We aren't expecting this trend to go anywhere. With summer (and festival season) on the horizon, what's not to love about a timeless bag that keeps your essentials secure, and your hands free for dancing!? You won't hear any complaining from us! Check out our take on the cross-body trend:

The Mini Bag is one of our favourite shapes of this season. The perfect medium size that will fit all your essentials, and a convenient long cross body strap makes this beauty perfect for evening wear or weekend adventures. Pick your colour, we've got five different ones to choose from!




The Hattie has proven to be one of our top customer favourites so far. This slouchy beauty is perfect for everyday wear, so it's not hard to see why! Casual but cute, Hattie is the perfect size and will give you that effortless London street-style look.




This season's Loxford Collection is a beautiful textural dream. The Mia Cross-Body Bag features a delicate laser cut design (also a major trend at the moment) inspired by beautiful London architecture, that is reminiscent of a soft lace. Mia is definitely at the top of the list of our cross-body bag crushes!



If you're a Paul's Boutique fan you'll already know about the Julia Bag. It's one of our all time favourites, and one of our customers favourites as well, which is why we bring it back time and time again (but always in fresh new prints of course)! This season you'll see Julia in a subtle dusty pink or grey snakeskin, with a gorgeous chain cross body strap.


Grayson and Avery aren't your usual LBB (little black back). Inspired by London architecture, this hexagonal shape is sure to get noticed amongst the crowd! This duo is the perfect mix of cute and badass. 



Devin, and it's mini me, Louis, are perfect cross-body options for anyone who needs to carry a little more with them. Take Devin away for the weekend and you'll fit all your essentials, or grab Louis for daily wear. This structured shape is perfect for workwear, and the thick navy detachable strap will make a statement!
