How can you choose the right cross body bag for you? They are basically three things that should always be at the back of your mind before you go ahead to buy a cross body bag and these include;

Height; the point where your cross bag stops is where most of the attention will be put. Some cross bags have long straps that go down below the waist to the hips while others have shorter straps that stop at the waist or slightly above the waist. So if you are short it is best to wear a cross bag with a longer strap to make your body appear taller and if you are too tall it is best you wear a cross bag with a shorter strap to balance out your height.

Body shape; for those with a smaller waist and wide hips or have a curvy bottom, if you want more attention drawn to your hips then wear a cross bag that hangs around the hips. If you want attention to your small waist then let it hang on to your waist. But if the upper body is bigger than your lower body it is best to balance your body by wearing a cross bag that falls to the hips.

Personal style; they are very many different types of cross body bags in different sizes, different shapes and different designs so it is all up to you to choose a cross bag that matches with kind of outfit you wear, you as an individual and the occasion you intend to take it to
