Neutral Crossbody Handbags

I have had the same Michael by MK large tan satchel for 4 years now, and I’m itching for a new handbag. When it comes to everyday bags, I have a few requirements. It has to be a neutral color that goes with both blacks and browns, and it has to fit everything that I need to bring with me wherever (phone, wallet, camera, gum, chapstick). And it has to be hot! I mean, it’s practically part of every outfit I wear. I love beige, tan, or white bags with gold hardware. Right now, I’m finding myself leaning towards a crossbody-style handbag. At first, I wasn’t a huge fan of these. But in lugging around my massive satchel, I’m starting to realize the appeal: they seem to balance the weight of the bag across both sides of your body, which is a feature women around the country can appreciate (how often are you switching shoulders?). They’re also at a convenient hip height for grabbing something quickly, like your iPhone for a quick photo op. Here are a few that may be in the running for purchase:
