Everyone knows a shopping whisper; you know, that one friend or family member who always manages to know the coolest brands before anyone else does. And, for us, that's Oprah. For as long as we can remember, the multi-hyphenate has been the arbiter of accessible luxury—and she just dropped her Oprah's Favorite Things 2022 list, where she shares her go-to products. The guide has a lot of home, food, beauty, and fashion items to offer, but topping our list is the JW Pei Aylin Crossbody bag, which is currently available for $32.
While JW Pei isn't exactly a household name, it does have a reputation for making trend-conscious, budget-friendly purses and accessories. Naturally, the Aylin crossbody is no exception. Clocking in at 7.2-inches high and 4.13 inches wide, this purse is perfect for minimalists who want to carry the bare necessities. (This crossbody is large enough to fit an iPhone 12 Pro Max—and has a convenient zipper on the back for cards and cash—so you won't have to worry about overstuffing your bag with items you don't even need.) The magnetic closure will keep your belongings secure, while the crossbody strap provides a hands-free way to carry all of your essentials.
Of course, this bag has a lot more to offer than practicality. Between the two-tone design and gold hardware, this compact carryall is considerably chicer than stuffing your belongings in your coat pocket. (Psst...the canvas version was featured on Oprah's list, but Amazon also has a vegan leather option that looks shockingly sophisticated.) Unlike other styles that may elicit some sticker shock, the Aylin crossbody is on sale for $32, which is less than a lot of people spend at their favorite restaurant. Whether you're on the hunt for the perfect stocking stuffer or a less-is-more bag to carry during a night on your own, this bag ticks off all of the boxes. (And, let's be honest, we had you at "Oprah," didn't we?)
