There has certainly been no shortage of handbag options for spring and summer; bag options are as widely varying as the people who carry them. Perhaps you're a backpack gal who lives out of her well-worn leather rucksack, or perhaps after all this time you still have a soft spot in your heart for a classic double-handled tote. Whatever your “thing” is, you may want to take a look at what handbag aficionados everywhere are declaring Summer's most versatile bag — the camera bag.

The camera bag is certainly not a new invention, but rather a sporty variation on the cross-body theme that has been playing for a few fashion cycles now. A camera bag has all of the functionality of a cross-body without the hassle of a flap or chain handle to slow you down. We scoured the net in search of some of the season's coolest camera bag options, and had a really hard time narrowing it down to just a few! Here are our favorites:

Anya Hindemarch “Have a Nice Day” Bag - $895

Anya Hindemarch - Have A Nice Day Bag

Sure, this bag may not be everyone's cup of tea, but there's no denying that when it comes to “feel good” accessories, this bag does what it says on the dime. The clean, functional design and oversized tassel are just the right touches for such a simple bag, and the message? Well, that speaks for itself, doesn't it?

Vasic Collection Anselmo Bag $220

Vasic Collection - Anselmo Bag

For the past few fashion seasons, there's been a move towards quality-constructed, unadorned bags that look expensive without actually being overly so. Vasic's Anselmo bag definitely falls into that category. Coming in at just $220, this unadorned leather bag is the kind of minimalist chic that fashion editors are going wild for right now. It's understated, solid but minimal design not only keeps your belongings safe, it ensures that you look good in the process.
