Supermarket: Crossbody Bags

basic, but not lame.

Like the Little Black Dress, everyone needs a classic crossbody bag. It's the perfect everyday purse, one that usually fits the essentials (your wallet, phone, makeup, and keys). Usually, we keep to neutral colors, but your bag can also be an opportunity to add a pop of color to your outfit. Go for a bag that has different compartments, so you can stay organized. Or, try one that looks small but really fits a lot, like your iPad. But most importantly, make sure the bag has at least one cool element, so you won't grow bored of it after one week.
