Cross-body bags for women provide today's busy and very modern woman with freedom of movement and fabulous functionality. No other purse can offer the same degree of convenience or style.
Although this style of bag may be regarded by some as sporty, casual, and meant for everyday wear, many very high-end bags designed to be worn across the body are on the market that are obviously meant for more dressy attire. The prices for these great bags range accordingly to very inexpensive (as in under $50) to designer cross-body bags that are rarely less than $100 and may even go up to several hundred dollars. Plain (but durable) fabrics to highest quality leather may be used in the creation of a cross-body bag. One online store I browsed through had three or four bags for women that can be worn across the body for over $1000. And, no, I didn't buy one. But it was fun looking!
Whether or not a cross-body purse is low-end or high-end, they all provide freedom of movement for the stylish woman who does not want a purse hanging on her arm or needing to be held by her hand. She has other things to do besides fiddling with a purse, so having a bag that can be worn across her body is very convenient and practical. The woman into sports or the woman into board meetings will find an equal appreciation for this style of bag. If she is out for a romantic evening on the town, a dressy bag worn across her body will free her hands for more interesting things to do besides holding a purse!
Along with the above benefits, it's important to note in these precarious and troubling times that a purse worn across your body is less likely to get lost or forgotten somewhere, and it certainly can't be ripped out of your hand when you are walking down the street. So, a bag designed to be worn across your body delivers an element of security and safety that no other purse can provide, thus relieving you of one less thing to worry about. This is especially important if you are traveling far from home.
