Have there been times you wanted to look stylish yet simple? Do you wish to make the right fashion statement? Then you need to change the type of bags you carry and how you wear them. In the hassle and stress of today, ladies are no longer interested in carrying cumbersome bags but want something practical and stylish hence the reason why so many are in love with cross body bags.
Traditional handbags or clutches look nice but could be cumbersome to transport. You can either decide to hold them with your hand or keep them slung over your shoulder and I bet you that can be very stressful. Often times the strap slips down, requiring you to continually readjust it. At the same time, all of the weight from the bag is in one side of the body, causing undue pressure on each of your shoulders.
On the other hand, cross body bags are a good balance involving the two. Asides the fact that they come in a variety of sizes, colors, designs, and shapes, they are also lovely and are entirely hands-free and will not slip off your shoulder while walking.
In terms of the way they function, they can be extremely useful to carry and comfortable to wear. They may be worn with the strap across your body. Basically, the strap is in one shoulder and also the bag is situated near the opposite hip. This helps distribute the bodyweight of the bag more evenly across your system, minimizing the stress on your shoulder.
Not too big and not too small, cross body bags are just the right size when you have to run some errands downtown or grab a coffee with your partner. A crossbody bag is a perfect choice from day to night for many people because of its practicality, style, and flair.
Adding a crossbody bag to your outfit means adding an effortless and cool vibe to your look of the day. These bags are ideal for running errands and for multitasking because your hands will be free. There are different sizes and that is it’s important to go for the small or medium size because a big bag hanging over your body would not give you the freedom to do other things.
The most important thing is that cross body bags gives you assured security. It is actually far harder for a thief to snatch a crossbody bag than the usual traditional shoulder bag, simply for the reality that it is wrapped around your entire body and can’t definitely be pulled off in passing. But for the traditional handbags, with the slightest mistake or carelessness, you can be rob easily.

Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube.
