With summer vacations coming up, you should all be on the lookout for a bag that can fit just your essentials. Whether you're exploring a new city or simply headed to the beach and boardwalk, no one wants to lug around a huge bag with things you don't actually need for hours on end. We've rounded up our favorite black cross-body bags for you to choose from. Keep in mind: The style needs to, at least, be able to carry your phone, wallet, lipstick, and gum. Want one for life? Spend some cash and invest in a good leather piece. Want one you can throw around and not care about? Grab one for under $40. We have both options in the gallery, below.
