All those heavy shoulder bags that we’ve been lugging around have definitely done some damage to our backs! The side-slung bag is not only more comfortable than lugging around a heavy tote, but you still have easy access to everything inside of it. And they are a lot more grown-up than the messenger bags of the past — even stars like Jessica Simpson, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz have been making the switch over. Why shouldn’t you? Here are some of our favorites at every budget:
