Chains, they’re more tricky to get right than you might think, and as bag lovers, we all know how finicky they can be. Chains are a common denominator of flap bags, shoulder bags, crossbody bags and more. When it comes to chains, there are a plethora of common types and lately we’ve been talking about chains quite a lot around here. The perfect chain bag is hard to come by and sometimes you’d rather skip out on the heavy hardware in favor of a more comfortable alternative—a leather strap. There are a slew of great bags on the market sans a chain strap, and many of them are new this year or season too. We did a little digging to bring you 12 chain-free alternatives to keep your shoulders stress and knot free. Which one would you wear?
