A crossbody is one of those summer essentials everyone should own. The secret to making sure they last through the years, though, is finding one that isn’t branded, isn’t too specifically detailed and isn’t made primarily of an easily damaged material like suede or even certain leathers.

Rothy’s checked all of these boxes with its newly released Casual Crossbody that’s just big enough to hold all your essentials while maintaining its elegant and minimal shape that goes with anything you wear.

This super compact crossbody bag comes in three colors — Evergreen (pictured above), Melon Medley and Parchment — and has one simple zip closure and a sturdy strap that fits comfortably over your shoulder. The Rothy’s Casual Crossbody also has an interior slip pocket that holds your phone or small items.

It doesn’t have any extra hidden pockets or embossed emblems. Instead, it has this sleek design that’s versatile enough to wear to dinner or your next summer music festival without looking out of place. It’s also strong enough to hold 50 pounds!

Like all of Rothy’s products, including its No. 1 best-selling RS01 Sneakers and its weekender bag (two of my personal favorites), this crossbody is 100% machine-washable. So, when you think it needs a refresh or needs to be cleaned, just toss it in the washing machine. Be sure to run it on the gentle cycle (no spin), then let it air dry in the sun for a couple of days, and it’s good to go!

In case you’re worried about washing Rothy’s’ products, rest assured that they hold up just fine. I’ve washed my Rothy’s RS01 Sneakers twice already, and they look brand new — like I just bought them after both washes.

Snag the new Rothy’s Casual Crossbody now, and add it to your summer fashion rotation.
