The Trend Towards Cross Handbags
From society satchels and clutch purses to tote and hobo style handbags the cross theme decoration is more prevalent now among fashion circles than ever before. Once a western novelty that rarely saw exposure outside of Texas the cross style handbag is now being sported on Hollywood celebrities, urban jet setters and runways across the fashion world. Mixed well with traditional and contemporary style women's handbags the cross theme fits well with casual and semi-formal outfits and never fails to attract attention wherever it is shown off.
Obviously a very sacred religious symbol the cross has evolved beyond any particular denomination and now simply represents a symbol of faith that can be adopted by anyone without feeling tied down to any one religious belief or sect. Cross style handbags can be found in many great materials including genuine cowhide leather, shiny sheen leatherette, zebra stripe animal print, mossy oak and croc print. In addition to modern and chic materials you can also find cross theme women's handbags in terrific colors ranging from basic and classic brown and black to shiny purple, deep red wine and vivid turquoise.
Many of the more popular cross style handbags will feature a single rhinestone studded or glass crystal cross adorning the front or side of the handbag. In addition to the large ornamental cross many of these popular handbags will also feature metal and rhinestone studs outlining the sides and straps of the handbag to add a little more bling to your cross handbag. Depending on the model handbag you select there may be buckles for the top closure and in such cases many of these straps and buckles will also feature shiny rhinestone and glass crystal embellishments to create a truly unique and fashionable women's purse.
Another popular style of cross handbag is the genuine hair-on-cowhide leather that features soft materials with a cross insignia on the front surrounded by shiny rhinestones and genuine Austrian crystals. With a single shoulder strap heavily decorated with rhinestone and metal studs this particular cross design handbag captures the rustic feel of the great American west while still maintaining a chic style.
