Crossbody bags aren't just for the messengers anymore. The masculine-shaped satchel is making a fun run everywhere from Mulberry to MCM this spring.

"We've been seeing a lot of the 'urban warrior' trend, and crossbody styles are a big part of that," says Carrie Chapman, Senior Buyer at Barneys New York. "They are functional and edgy, and can be very sophisticated."

With the ability to be slung across one's torso, this functional accessory leaves you hands-free. Not such a bad thing when you consider all the gadgetry that people are carrying these days (hello iPad!). Better yet, it can give an über casual outfit a bit of panache, and pairs well with an elegant look too, like a LBD.

In the following slideshow, we round out the best of the bunch at a variety of price points. What do you think? Will you be tapping into this trend?
