Make Like Alexa Chung And Put It In The (Brightly Colored) Bag

One of our style faves, Alexa Chung, was spotted at London Fashion Week with a  blue-green Burberry Brights satchel and suddenly we are coveting a bright crossbody bag for the spring as well. Here, some equally-colorful (but wallet-friendlier!) options:

Topshop’s Pale Green Leather Tassel Side Crossbody Bag ($70) is almost a lookalike of Alexa’s bag, but in a softer shade: perfect for the color-shy.

Botkier’s Haven Crossbody Bag ($221.25, from $295), not for the color-shy, definitely grabs attention with its bright indigo blue and buttery leather. Let the bag speak for itself, like Alexa does, by pairing with a dark colors.  We’d go for a blazer and skinny jeans.

B. Makowsky’s Dakota Crossbody Bag ($178) will make you feel like spring even on those blistery March days. Toughen it up and contrast the sunny bag with a leather jacket.

This lipstick-red BDG Turnlock Front Crossbody Bag ($42) is an instant classic that’ll go with everything, but if you want to channel your inner French girl, throw it over a belted camel trench coat.

You also can’t go wrong with a woven bag, like Deux Lux’s Woven Crossbody Turnlock Bag ($89) in dusty purple. And we don’t hate the chain handle, either.
