If you take a close look at celebrity fashion, you’ll know that it is full of futile accessories. From Taylor Swift’s $4,250 “87” necklace to Jennifer Lopez’s $43,500 handbag, you probably don’t need any of these things unless you’re walking the red carpet (I wish). However, that’s not the case for a certain practical phone strap case that’s found its way into a plethora of A-lister’s collections.

Bandolier, which literally means a “belt worn over the shoulder,” prioritizes stylish, but functional, accessories. Its popular crossbodies combine a phone case, carrying strap, and wallet into one product, elevating your ensemble with ease. Countless celebrities like Blake Lively, Cindy Crawford, Zendaya, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Selena Gomez have all worn the staple accessory — and the 2024 Super Bowl added two familiar faces into the mix.

After the Chiefs took home the big win (go Taylor’s boyfriend!), Donna Kelce — Travis Kelce’s mom — headed to the field. Strung around her chest was Bandolier’s Donna crossbody case, which featured a Reputation-coded snake print. She made the accessory her own by swapping out the OG band for a studded leather strap. This isn’t the first time she’s worn the accessory, as she reached for an all-black version leading up to the big game, which appeared to be the Sarah crossbody with an alternate strap.

Martha Stewart reached for Bandolier’s Hailey side-slot carrying case in a mossy green hue that same day. It’s not her first rodeo with the coveted accessory, either, though this time, Stewart detached the strap and used it as a stand-alone case, which featured a snap closure and secure card holder.

Both options are lightweight and drop-proof which is great for game-day, but they work just as well for other occasions, too. I’ve carried my own Kimberly Crossbody around New York City, to the park, and even music festivals. I simply sling the case across my body and don’t worry about it until I need to snap a picture or send a text. My phone stays safe and secure, always being within arm’s reach. The attached card holder keeps my wallet super accessible, too, so I don’t have to fumble around my bag just to find my credit card.

Don’t be bummed if you didn’t fall in love with any of the above Bandolier picks. The brand has tons of choices, ranging from classic options like the all-black Mila Magsafe charging case to bold offerings, like the Billie utility crossbody. And don’t even get me started with the dozens of carrying straps and wristlets available, which really let you customize your look.
