To channel a bohemian look, try this Verch bag from Aldo and let your inner-Nicole Richie come out. This style of cross-body is perfect for a day of sightseeing or museum-going as it securely and comfortably holds all your belongings in place.
For the girl traveling abroad for the summer, this Essex small scout Kate Spade cross-body bag will be your best friend. It has two buckles that keep your items secure with durable cowhide material so it won’t fall apart on you. The studious look it has to it doesn’t hurt either.
