The cross body bag will be the biggest men's accessory this Fall

The cross body bag will be the biggest men's accessory this Fall

I'm calling this right now just because I have started to see this as an emerging trend. You remember a couple of years ago when you would carry your reliable Rick Owens tote and people would call you gay, or say "yo nice purse bro!" Yeah, well look who is laughing now. The #manpurse trend is among us, and more and more fashion homies are starting to rock a cross body bag than ever before. I think this is fucking sweet to be honest. Carrying around your phone, wallet, sunglasses, and camera is kinda a bitch, so it only makes sense that guys are finally coming around to carrying a bag. Many brands have started making cross body pouches or bags in reaction to this growing trend. Not to say the fanny pack and other bags haven't been in production before, its just that now that guys are confident enough to rock it, that these brands are starting to satisfy the want and produce more.

For many people it takes just one person to co-sign a product or trend for it to start to take prevalence. Thanks to Off-White's creative director Virgil Abloh, the cross body bag has started to take hold in the street fashion forward youth community. In this Instagram post, Abloh dons his fairly used Louis Vuitton cross body bag.

Supreme definitely spotted this trend, considering these cross bad bags that are apart of their Fall 2016 collection are very similar to the cross body bag that Virgil Abloh carries (above). Coincidence??

So if you are in need of carrying your shit around, you def need to cop some short of bag for this fall. It is a great accessory that can add a little detail to your outfit, and actually serves a purpose.
