5 Petite Friendly Crossbody Bags

Today, we are going to talk about a fun topic! I’ll be answering the question, what are my favorite petite friendly crossbody bags? After I posted on instagram about my height (For reference, I’m 4’11 or 150 CM), several people reached out to me asking if I have any designer petite friendly crossbody bags I recommend. Or if I know any brands that are great for crossbody bags for shorter ladies.

Well you are in luck because for one I love shopping and for two I love crossbody bags and small handbags. Don’t get me wrong, I love my giant Louis Vuitton Neverfull Bag as well, but lately I’m really into smaller handbags and crossbody bags.

The first designer crossbody bag that comes to mind is one that I’ve had for years. It’s called the Rebecca Minkoff chevron quilted love crossbody bag. This crossbody bag is not only petite friendly, but has adjustable straps with a few different ways to style the chain. I purchased this bag a few years ago in the light pink color and adore it. If you are looking for a more traditional color then black or a nude color is also a great choice!

Another one of my favorite petite friendly crossbody bags is the Valentino rock stud crossbody bags. I purchased this bag a few years ago because I was able to purchase it on sale, and surprisingly it has become one of my favorite crossbody bags. In fact, many of my photos on instagram feature this bag because it’s perfect for a petite frame. Although a few years old you can still find a few of these preloved on my favorite second hand site.

If you are looking to splurge and buy a more expensive crossbody bag then I highly recommend the Celine small C Bag! 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. For me, I purchased this bag is a classic black on black color, but I love the neutrals for this style as well. This is a timeless bag that is very understated.

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. I love these timeless bags. Recently I got the Allegro midi bag, and you can either carry it or attach the straps to make it a crossbody bag. This is the perfect size to carry a phone, wallet, sunnies, and a few other things. I’m excited to continue to add Strathberry pieces to my collection. I have my eye on the East / West Mini model for my next purchase! (Currently the Strathberry Allegro Midi Bag is sold out in white)

** update! So I did it, I got the East/West Bag, and it's sooo cute!

Chloe Nile Bag

I adore Chloe bags, in fact I have a few pieces in my purse collection. One bag that really surprised me that I wear all the time is the Chloe Nile bag with the strap attached. This is one of those crossbody bags that I purchased thinking I'd only wear it for special occasions, but it's actually quite this opposite. In photos I typically unclip the long strap, but in reality this bag is a perfect crossbody bag. Their unique design is a great addition to any wardrobe. The Chloe Nile Bag is just a fun bag. Every time I wear it, I get tons of compliments.
