Best Bet: Cross Your Heart


Sometimes that oversize shoulder bag is necessary, for carting around a change of shoes for work, extra clothes for the gym, or the latest mammoth issue of Vogue or Vanity Fair for the subway. But after lugging around our life's contents on one shoulder all week, by the weekend we're ready to sling on something a little less taxing. This cross-body bag from eryn brinié is just big enough to tote the essentials, with a long chain strap so you won't have to fuss around with your drink and a clutch. And despite the affordable price — just knocked down from $100 to $59 — the caramel-colored pouch is 100 percent leather.

Chain link handbag, $59 at eryn brinié or online.
