As someone who is petite (4’11 or 150 CM) buying a cross-body bag that doesn't have a too long or too short of strap can be difficult. I have tested out and tried on hundreds of cross-body bags and today I'm sharing with you my favorite. 5 Petite friendly crossbody bags include the Rebecca Minkoff Chevron Quilted Love,
Rebecca Minkoff Chevron Quilted Love Crossbody
The first designer cross-body bag that comes to mind is one that I’ve had for years. It’s called the Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted love cross-body bag. The reason I love this cross-body bag is because of the adjustable straps which allow you to style the bag a few different ways. I purchased this bag a few years ago in a light pink color which is great for the spring and summer in Paris. If you want a cross-body bag that you can wear year round then I definitely recommend the black color or the nude. This bag is priced at $200. Shop Rebecca Minkoff Chevron Quilted Crossbody Bags.
Valentino Rockstud Crossbody Bag
The Valentino Rock Stud crossbody bag is my go-to bag when I'm looking to elevate an outfit to a more edgy look. I adore the gold rock studs on the front of the bag, and whenever I wear this it's a great conversation starter. The reason this bag is ideal for someone who is petite is because it falls right at the hips when worn crossbody, it's lightweight, and can be worn for day or evening. The best part of the Valentino rockstud bag is you can purhase it on the vintage market selling at a steep discount with prices starting around $600.
Celine C Bag
If you are looking to splurge and buy a more expensive crossbody bag then I highly recommend the Celine small C Bag! I have several Celine bags in my handbag collection because of the high quality craftsmanship and chic designs. This bag is the perfect size for a petite frame and doesn’t overpower our figure. What I adore about this bag is how versatile it is, I wear this bag with my casual outfits and it's small enough to wear as an evening bag. This is a timeless, understated bag that falls in line with the quiet luxury look. Shop Celine C Bags
Strathberry Allegro Midi Bag
I was first introduced to Strathberry a few years ago, when I first spotted Meghan Markle carrying one of their bags. Ever since then Strathberry has been taking the market by storm. Recently, I purchased the Allegro midi bag that can be carried by the top handle or with the attached crossbody strap. Although, this is a little bigger than the other crossbody bags mentioned, I love the fact that it can carry so many things including my phone, wallet, Celine sunglasses, and a small makeup bag. I have several Strathberry bags in my collection and love this high quality bags. Shop Strathberry Bags.
Chloe Nile Bag
I have several Chloe bags in my wardrobe because I find them fun, youthful and chic. One Chloe bag that I wear frequently with the crossbody strap attached is the Chloe Nile bag. I purchased this crossbody bag thinking I'd only wear it for special occasions but actually I wear it for special occasions and out and about around the city. What I adore about the Chloe Nile bag is the large gold handle that elevates the piece making it feel like a work of art. The good news is you can purchase Chloe Nile bags discounted on the vintage market for under $800.
