The 6 Summer Handbags You’ll Want to Own
by Emily Cholakian
Whether you’re headed to a beach bonfire or a backyard barbecue, having the right bag is essential. After all, nobody wants to be caught poolside with last season’s quilted satchel. Here are the six summer handbags to fit every adventure.
1. Canvas Tote
When it comes to summer handbags, no bag is ready to tackle the season like a tote. Take yours to the farmer’s market, the pool, or park. We love the way Sazan added a pop of red to her everyday denim-on-denim look.
2. Mini Shoulder Bag
This little bag, which can be worn crossbody, is the perfect thing for road trips. It holds everything you need and nothing extra. We caught blogger Kiara of Tobruck Ave roadside with a leather mini bag.
3. Bright Clutch
Summer is all about having fun. What better way to add a spot of fun to your look than with printed clutch? Sheryl of Walk in Wonderland celebrates the season with this sunset clutch. Wear it with denim during the day and a little black dress for night.
4. Native Print
This season is all about detail, and we’re loving all things native and embroidered. Cara Loren styles her black-and-white batik print bag for a casual night out. Native print backpacks are perfect for festival wear.
5. Minimal Backpack
City dwellers need one bag and one bag only: the backpack. Keep it minimal and fresh. Kristen Lam of KristenGlam wears a mint stunner around the streets of New York City.
6. Straw Bag
No matter if you’re headed to the boardwalk or any summer event, the straw bag is the summer bag. Liz of Late Afternoon packs away her beautiful peonies for an afternoon coffee run in an ultra chic version.
