New Ways to Wear a Cross-Body Bag According To Rag & Bone’s SS 2015 Show

We all have this problem. We can’t decide on the bag we should take to a party, on a trip, to go out shopping, or simply anywhere. We are constantly moving from purse to clutch to larger bags in the hopes of being able to carry everything with us. And then when we reach our destination, we are confounded by our lovely bags, which we need to carry around since that’s where we store all the essentials. And then there’s the problem with mugging. You don’t even need to be in New York City to face that type of threat. We see it everywhere these days: damsels in distress as the terrible sketchy looking men make a dive for precious purses and run away faster than our high-heeled shoes are able to carry us.

The New Way to Wear a Cross-Body Bag According To Rag & Bone's SS 2015 Show

In order to solve this age-old dilemma, cross-body bags have crept into the closets of women all around. What’s more they have become so stylish recently that multiple ways of wearing cross-body bags have emerged. At Rag & Bone’s spring 2015 show, we got a sneak peak at how the boys have managed to combine multiple designs into a cross-body that’s part sling, part harness, and part feed bag. Yet, it seems to look rather uncomfortable. After all, the bag is flat on your chest and that truly diminishes the overall market as many women have rather large busts. David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, the stylish New York based British boys, have most definitely created an efficient alternative to the traditional bag, but there is unfortunately only one way to wear it: cross-body or cross-chest to better explain the situation. They even went so far that suggested wearing cross-body bags like traditional backpacks with the strap appearing on your chest and the bag tightly embracing your back.

Yet, what is not taken into consideration is that it might get pretty uncomfortable having a bag weighing down on your diaphragm, even if a woman is rather flat as a board. Furthermore, you run the risk of having it slide under your arms, only adding to the discomfort. Efficient if you need your hands free, it is also rather strange to be walking around with a bag plastered to your chest. We’re not quite sure how appealing that particular style may be.

Either way, the new spin on an old favourite is definitely worth checking out and trying on. It may be more comfortable and easier to manoeuvre than we realize. The more we look at it, the more it seems to be appealing to our senses! Only problem is that we might have a bit of difficulty with giving and receiving hugs. The bags would be getting all the love and we’d be left with the sharp sting of something or another poking into our chests!
