Hobo Bags: A Study in Style and Practicality
Crescent-shaped and slouchy, hobo purses are worn cross-body or over the shoulder and are easily identified by the droopy or curved bottom. But don’t let these off-putting descriptors fool you; the hobo purse is far and away the most popular bag type largely because of its practicality, comfort and versatility. Borrowing its name from the image of a cartoon hobo carrying a bindle on a stick, hobo purses are so simple in their design that they always leave room for designers to create fashion-forward looks with their use of detail and choice of material.
