Crossbody bags and backpacks are stylish solutions for when you need to carry more. Chances are, your day-to-day needs aren't as minimal as some makeup, a few cards, and a little cash. You likely also need to carry larger items like a laptop or tablet and a phone. You need space in your bag and a way to carry it that won't weigh you down.
A good example of a bag that carries it all is the Abby Backpack. It has two open side pockets, so your phone has a choice of homes. The lined interior offers a zippered pocket plus two side pockets, so your credit cards and other smaller items won't just float around in a confused jumble.
On the other end of the size spectrum is the Rory Fiesta Fringe Bucket from Minicci. This little crossbody handbag is great when you're traveling relatively light and feeling a little retro-stylish. It features a festive fabric body with plenty of fun fringe, so it's perfect for outings with family and friends. For security, it has both a drawstring and a magnetic snap closure.
For work and other occasions when you want a handbag that coordinates with a dressier outfit, you should consider the Peony Crossbody from Christian Siriano. The dual padded handles add to this bag's versatility. You can use the handles or the optional crossbody strap to carry it.
The Quilt Jodi Backpack gives you attractive quilted accents and buckle details on the exterior, and adjustable straps for carrying comfort. You'll love the two large front pockets for storing your power cords, phone, and more. And when you take your backpack off, you can use the hanging strap to keep it safe and off the floor.
Wherever you go and whatever you do, there are crossbody bags and backpacks to make the journey easier. Visit your local Payless store, or shop online. They come in many sizes and styles, so there's one waiting for you.
