25 Best Summer Bags for 2019
All the go-to handbags you should be sporting this season.
There’s a conveyor belt of options when it comes to spring/summer handbag trends. Bags with fringe or tassels, which made the rounds on the runways, unusual snap clasps or appliqués are always one of the best ways for you to have fun with style. Plus, as well as being fashionable and sophisticated, an extra elegant belt bag, an upgrade to the related fanny pack, helps you get that work done thanks to the hands-free aspect. Another trend guaranteed to always elicit a reaction from your friends are the small, quirky Cinderella-approved see-through bags. And for a bohemian, carefree summer look, we think there’s nothing like raffia or a drawstring-top bag. Boxy lunchbox-style bags are also very fashion-forward and look especially summery when they come in wicker.
If you’re looking for the classic bag shapes that will never go out of style like totes, shoppers and over-the-shoulder options, there’s nothing like pops of colour and fun prints to celebrate the season. Crocodile prints, which were spotted on practically every runway, are also a great way of adding a trendy touch. The great news is that with most brands incorporating removable crossbody straps, bags have become ultra-functional and can easily take you from day to night.
