Crossbody bags to match your weekend style

Hands-free bags that express your true style

The weekend is finally here. What kind of look do you gravitate towards on your off hours? Are you bohemian or minimalist? Feminine or androgynous? Pick a crossbody bag that fits your style.

We all have a unique sense of personal style, and our handbags should reflect those preferences the same way our wardrobes do. Here are seven crossbody bags, each reflecting a different look, so you can celebrate your weekend with (hands-free) style.

As evidenced by Vanessa Hudgens in this photo from Coachella, boho ladies like flowing fabrics, floral prints and leather boots. Get the look with this fringed leather crossbody bag from Free People. The elaborate braiding and beaded accents are totally hippie-fab. It isn't cheap, though, so maybe skip the "rolling in the mud" session at the next outdoor music festival you attend.

Sienna Miller, our modern-day Edie Sedgwick, demonstrates what mod looks like in the year 2014 with her glam black-and-gold dress, dark eyeliner, and long blonde hair. Channel her look with this boxy black crossbody from Forever 21. The bag even has a leopard-print lining, adding to the 1960s vibe. You'd fit right in at Andy Warhol's Factory. (Forever 21, $22)

As Victoria Beckham illustrates, minimalism is all about clean lines and excellent fit. You don't have to forgo colors, however, nor should you. The sparse look of minimalist design means that color and the odd detail pack a far more powerful punch, evidenced by this ASOS crossbody bag with large metal buckle. (ASOS, $48)

Hipsters come in all shapes and sizes with all sorts of variations on style, but if there's one thing all hipsters enjoy, it's some joie de vivre. This bag is shaped like an old school lunch box, but the aqua and black color scheme is ultra cheeky. Wear this and you'll be right at home at a Bushwick loft party. (Topshop, $44)

Ultra feminine

You like flowers, polka dots, cute animals and being compared to Zooey Deschanel. You've never seen a circle skirt or a hair bow you didn't like. And now you've found the bag of your dreams, the Adventurous Acumen Bag, available on ModCloth. You are not messing around with that daring shade of mustard yellow, plus the retro shape and sweet bow on the front closure will go so perfectly with your closet full of sundresses. (ModCloth, $84)

Menswear just... suits you. Like Cate Blanchett in this flawless black pantsuit and white blouse, you gravitate towards men's button-downs, loafers, and impeccably-cut blazers, even on the weekends. You'll want a no-frills purse, but something less sparse than a minimalist might wear. The buckles on this Frye satchel won't distract from your polished, unisex look, but this red shade also prevents the bag from fading into the background. (Urban Outfitters, $438)
