Cross This Off The List: 7 Crossbody Bags To Wear With Your Casual Desi ‘Fits


Even though we’re over the roof about an increasing number of kurtas having pockets lately, it’s a pity, not all Indian wear does. And the ones that do, don’t have pockets big enough to carry your daily essentials, do they? Whether it’s light sarees, casual kurtas or other desi outfits, it’s a pity Indian wear doesn’t go well with all the bags we have in our closet. Most of us end up just carrying our phones in our hands or worse, carrying mismatched bags with our desi looks.

That’s not an ideal scenario, especially for a fashion girl! So, when it comes down to choosing the right bag to wear with your casual desi outfits, we’re about to make it very VERY easy for you. And guess what, you can wear them with your jeans, dresses and other western pieces too. Score! Can’t wait? Start scrolling…
