Best Designer Crossbody Bags in 2022 (All Under $1,500!)
Saint Laurent Lou Camera Bag
The Saint Laurent Lou camera bag (priced at $1,490) is one of the best designer handbags if you’re looking for a an everyday designer crossbody bag that will also transition well from day to night.
The Lou features quilted leather with gold hardware and an adjustable leather strap. The beautiful YSL gold hardware makes it look more luxe and elegant. And, it comes in 10 colorways!
The Balmain B-Army is another cute designer crossbody bag under $1,500. In fact, it’s under $1,000!
It’s a linen material mixed with leather and features a gold chain and leather strap. It’s another good option for everyday and the material makes it more casual.
Since it is linen and a light-toned bag, just be aware of the potential for color transfer and avoid wearing this bag with dark denim or colors that bleed. The bag comes in both a brown leather and black leather option.
Gucci Soho Disco
I found the perfect designer crossbody bag in the Gucci Soho Disco bag. And while it’s not exactly a new handbag, it is the perfect crossbody bag for everyday use.
This is a soft structured camera bag in leather with an adjustable shoulder strap.
The bag is a workhorse! It fits significantly more than you’d think and is quite casual making it excellent for everyday errands, a birthday party with kids, traveling and more.
The Gucci Soho Disco bag comes in both nude and black; you can also find it in red on the resale market.
As of the time of this post, it’s priced at $1,390 and is easily my most-used handbag. The classic style makes this a great investment piece you’ll use and love for a long time.
It features one main interior compartment, gold-tone hardware and a leather tassel.
Watch my review + what fits below:
Tory Burch Eleanor
Tory Burch may be a more contemporary designer on this list of luxury brands, but that doesn’t mean the quality of the Tory Burch Eleanor is any less than stunning.
This gorgeous luxury shoulder bag comes in several styles including loads of color options, leather and canvas versions as well as a leather or gold chain strap. It prominently features large gold logo hardware.
The price point is accessible, ranging from $598-$848.
I’m personally loving the gorgeous pink Eleanor or the black version. It’s elegant and would work well for formal events, too.
Bottega Veneta Mini Loop $1,250
How adorable is the Bottega Veneta mini loop?! This classic shoulder bag is understated yet elegant featuring the Bottega Veneta signature Intrecciato pattern weave the fashion house is known for.
This designer handbag is made of calfskin leather with one main compartment and comes in 6 colorways. If you’re in need of a casual everyday crossbody, this one would be an excellent choice.
Saint Laurent Loulou
Saint Laurent is well-known for its classic luxury handbags, and the Saint Laurent Loulou is no exception. This stunning line of handbags includes a great crossbody style in its smaller size called the Toy, and it comes in at $1,590!
The Toy Loulou features a removable crossbody strap and two compartments inside + a zippered pocket. A magnetic closure provides easy access and there is a range of different sizes if you need something a bit bigger.
You’ll also have multiple colorways and material options to choose from including leather, denim canvas and suede.
Gucci GG Marmont
The Gucci Marmont is another popular camera bag style that comes in at under $1,500!
The small size is $1,550 and the mini is $1,390. This trendy bag fits plenty and features Gucci’s signature GG gold hardware.
I own the small Gucci Marmont bag in black and it’s quite similar in size to the Gucci Soho Disco bag. Both can easily accommodate a small wallet and fit way more than you’d think.
It also has an adjustable strap featuring leather and chain detail. This type of strap is ideal so you won’t have a chain digging into your shoulder.
Inside the bag, you’ll find one main compartment as well as a small pocket perfect for credit cards. I recommend a purse organizer to help it retain its shape since it is smooth leather.
If you just need to carry your cell phone, keys and a few credit cards, consider the Gucci Marmont mini size. It’s adorable.
You’ll find both size options in plenty of colors and different material options like leather and suede.
3.1 Phillip Lim Mini Satchel:
If you’re looking for a designer crossbody that isn’t a classic camera bag style, then you may like the 3.1 Phillip Lim Mini Satchel.
While this bag isn’t new in the fashion world by any means, it has been around for many years and has really withstood the test of time.
What’s more, the mini satchel comes in multiple colors including some fun brights like hot pink. And, it’s priced well at under $700!
Saint Laurent Wallet on Chain
If you’re looking for an evening bag option that doubles as a crossbody, look no further than the Saint Laurent Wallet on Chain.
This classic piece comes in several popular styles including smooth leather, pebbled leather and a faux crocodile-embossed leather that is more of a glossy finish (the other two are matte).
The Saint Laurent WOC is an excellent day-to-night option and features a gorgeous chain strap in gold or silver hardware. It’s also far more versatile than just having a wallet or a clutch as this way, you get the best of both worlds!
There are dedicated slots for your credit cards plus space for extras like lipstick and keys. Perfect for weddings, date nights, special events and even the daytime, a Saint Laurent wallet on chain is a strong contender for one of the best luxury crossbody bags.
Senreve Cadence Crossbody
The Senreve Cadence bag is a gorgeous crossbody option with a timeless silhouette. It can fit up to a 6” tablet and has 3 compartments as well as a key hook.
This bag comes in 5 pebbled leather color options and 5 vegan leather color options. It has a timeless and elegant look, and it’s priced well at under $650.
Cadence features an adjustable leather strap that is removable so you can swap it for a chain strap to glam it up or a statement shoulders strap (both sold separately).
Senreve’s leather is quite durable; it’s scratch-resistant stain-resistant and water-resistant, too! You won’t have to baby this bag, making it a great option for everyday wear or even a work bag.
If you prefer sustainable luxury handbags, you can go for the vegan leather option, which is made of 100% plant-based proteins. It’s also a lightweight leather that’s water-resistant.
If you’re looking for a unique crossbody that makes more of a statement, then you’ll definitely want to check out the Gucci Ophidia Mini Round.
This cute bag features Gucci’s signature monogram canvas print along with gold hardware, a gold chain and a green and red stripe down the center.
The Gucci Ophidia clocks in at $1,490 price point and there is also an all-leather option as well if you’re in the market for black designer crossbody bags.
Gucci Horsebit 1955 Shoulder Bag
One of the most classic crossbody bags on this list is the Gucci Horsebit 1955. This designer crossbody fuses some of Gucci’s most iconic details like the monogram print, leather details and horse bit in gold.
This stylish crossbody bag comes in two colorways including the above-mentioned print priced at $1,550 and an all-black leather version for $1,700.
The leather strap is adjustable and the bag boasts a roomy interior. It’s a beautiful everyday piece that is neutral enough to play nicely in most any wardrobe.
Stella McCartney Vegan Leather Camera Bag
If you love designer handbags that use vegan leather, then the Stella McCartney Vegan leather camera bag is the perfect choice.
This bag features a perforated logo detail, a large adjustable guitar strap and it comes in 5 color ways.
What’s more, it’s well-priced at $715. This is another excellent option if you’re looking for a casual crossbody bag.
See by Chloé Mara Embellished Leather Shoulder Bag
I’ve always been a fan of both Chloé and See by Chloé handbags and the See by Chloé Mara embellished leather shoulder bag is no exception!
The O-ring bag also has a removable leather strap that’s adjustable, while the other Mara style features a detachable chain and leather strap.
Both Mara bags feature gorgeous gold hardware and multiple colorways and Chloé’s boho vibes. And the pricing ranges from $395-$700 making it one of the more affordable luxury bags on this list.
It’s an incredibly stylish bag and looks quite elegant for daytime or even evening wear and events like a date night.
