Shop similar convertible bags starting at $23
While bag trends move quickly, with the fashion world oscillating from mini sling bags to comically large totes in a moment’s notice, the practical crossbody bag will always be relevant.
Kristen Bell is one of the latest celebrities to carry the purse style, but hers is actually even more practical. She was photographed with her husband, Dax Shepard, wearing a cozy fall look with a black leather purse slung across her body over a long camel coat. The rounded, rectangular style has a worn-in ease, made more elevated by its metal hardware. But it’s the small top handles that add a true level of versatility, making it easy to carry in different ways.
Plus, her medium-sized crossbody bag allows far more room for everyday basics, with space for more than just your phone, keys, and wallet. The crossbody straps also leave more room for whatever you might be wearing underneath, especially in the colder weather. Like Bell, you can still comfortably go hands-free with this style while wearing a chunky sweater or a coat in the fall or carry it by the top handles with a sundress come summer.
Whether you’re always on the move, planning a big trip, or just prefer a hands-free bag moment, read on for some similar crossbody bags with convertible handles starting at $23.

Starting with the most affordable option on the list, Katloo’s hobo-style bag delivers impressive quality at just $23. It has a rounded, oblong shape similar to Bell’s, complete with the same gold hardware and double strap option for easy, versatile use. As a bonus, the crossbody strap is detachable, so you can use it only when you need it — and opt for the top handle when you don’t.
Amongst the over 700 five-star ratings, past purchasers have called it the “perfect size” and “durable,” raving about its convenient interior pockets and compartments. One reviewer spoke to all of its considered details, saying, “The hardware is sturdy, the zipper is smooth, [and] very nice stitching.”
Iswee Shoulder Bag
Looking for a bag that looks worth more than what you actually paid for it? This style from Iswee strikes the perfect balance of structure and style, resembling Bell’s bag with a bit more refinement. “I have purchased two other handbags by this company, and they are also of very good quality leather,” one reviewer said. “Worth every penny.”
Crafted with quality cowhide genuine leather, the bag has five pockets in total, removable straps, and thoughtful contrast stitching detail for an elevated touch. For longevity’s sake, you’ll also find durable silver metal hardware throughout — including a sturdy metal footed bottom.
Cluci Travel Backpack Purse
Cluci’s Travel Backpack Purse offers a different take on the two ways to wear style, offering a true backpack designed with a longer, detachable strap for wearing on the shoulder or across the body for comfort and safe keeping. It also has anti-theft design details, like a hidden zipper on the backside of the bag, that don’t take away from its stylish look.
Available in over a dozen colors and prints, the bag is made in soft, water-resistant pebble grain leather and is completed with metal hardware for a clean, modern look. It currently has more than 12,000 five-star ratings, where shoppers are quick to note its quality and functionality. “Looks and feels classy, comfortable, and durable,” one reviewer shared.
