When it comes to packing essentials, whether your trip involves days spent seeing city sights or a low-key beach escape, a cute crossbody bag offers just as much vacation versatility as a dreamy cover-up or flattering bathing suit you can wear with everything.

They’re sized to fit all your on-the-go items—wallet, passport, sunglasses, natural sunscreen, phone—and are more comfortable and secure than a shorter-strapped shoulder bag. Current designs from high-end fashion houses, like Fendi and Louis Vuitton, include distinctively cool hardware. And more wallet-friendly (but luxe-looking) options, from the likes of J.Crew and Lands’ End, are equally as chic in their minimalist aesthetics.

This summer’s silhouettes range from cheekily embellished saddle bags to ultra-streamlined, rectangular shapes. Best of all? It’s certainly not strictly a travel piece—you’ll want to sling one on even if your final destination’s only your fitness studio or Whole Foods.

Ahead, check out 11 styles made for globetrotting (and more everyday settings, too).
