Crossbody bags, fanny packs, and small backpacks are the perfect spring and summer outfit staples that are stylish, have enough space for your phone, wallet, keys, mask, and SPF, but don’t require much effort to carry around since they sit on your waist, back, or hip rather than on your arm or in your hand. They are easy to dress up or down, are ideal for traveling, running, or a quick jaunt to the store, and much safer than storing your essentials in a back pocket.
Scroll down for the 6 best summer bags that you’ll want to add to your collection immediately.
