No matter how fancy a miniature bag can be, often a single one simply isn’t enough to tote all your essentials or at least get you through the day. This season, however, the solution to this common problem may be double-strapping two, three or however many of your favourite cross-body bags together.

Top handling

When multi hand-bagging, the best way to do it is with top handle bags for there’s always the option of teaming your bags together in one hand or sliding them up your arm. With this combination, contrasting the textures of your bags will put you right on trend and perhaps even make you feel like you’re walking down a Chanel runway.
