It’s well documented here on Some Kind Of Fabulous how much we love Boden Bags. So it’s no suprise to see the Boden Pimlico Bag featuring in this Best Of Guide. This gorgeous, leather, across the body bag has a fully adjustable shoulder strap so you can wear it over your shoulder or make it longer and wear it across your body. This is a medium sized bag with front pockets that remind me of the iconic Mulberry Bleinham bag. Inside you’ll find a gorgeous spotty Boden lining. The Pimlico Bag is available in 3 gorgeous Winter colours, Dark Brown, Dark Navy or Tan as shown here. Priced at £79.00 this is great value for a genuine leather bag.
Radley are a force to be reckoned with in the world of Leather Bags. Whilst their picture book bags are a little twee they do offer a functional range of leather across the body bags.

Whilst leather across the body bags are great for every day use like walking the dog, running around town with the kids and so forth they are also ideal for taking on a night out.

This Ted Baker Hobbie Bag is perfect for this. A small black leather bag with a girly bow detail. Once again it is made from quality grained leather.

Leather bags are usually more expensive than buying bags made from other textiles but if you shop smart there are some real bargains to be found on the virtual high street.

The final bag to show you in this guide to the best leather across the body bags is from Monsoon. Monsoon might not be the first place you would think of shopping for a new handbag but they do stock a small selection of good quality leather bags on their website. All the bags we have features so far have been in traditional colours such as Black, Brown and Tan but if your wearing a dark coloured coat why not brighten it up with a touch of colour like this Red leather Vale Cross Body Bag. It features a stylish turn lock fastening. Price £69.00.
As we said at the start of this best of guide leather bags should last for a very long time but you do need to make sure you look after them. Leather doesn’t really like water so try to avoid taking your bag out on very wet days or invest in some water repellent spray. Some of the more expensive bags do come with a protective dust bag that you can store your bag in whilst it’s not in use.
