Let’s not wait any longer—it’s time to make a fashion statement with some of this season’s stellar bags!
First things first, every woman needs a clutch. An envelope clutch that is. This smartly folded (just as the name suggests) style can be worn day or night. Stormy weather might be on the horizon, but these festive Diana Warner Envelope Clutches ($218) available at PinkMascara are sure to brighten your day and bring your outfit to life!
Why not give your look an artisan flair with an earthy, woven handbag? This Woven Dome Studded Satchel ($109) from Bebe would look great with your favorite maxi dress and gladiator sandals. Choose from Natural or Living Color—the neutral tones complement just about every ensemble. And this style can easily transition into any season!
Prints, prints, and more prints are the name of the game. Polka dots, stripes, floral, Aztec, tribal, and animal prints are calling. Mix and match; don’t be shy! Anthropologie’s amazing, whimsical Galaxias Tote ($78) is a perfect way to experiment with mixing prints for a fun, fresh (and slightly daring) look! Make a statement running errands or throw in a bottle of sunscreen and a towel and you’re ready for the beach.
Color is hot this season, and it doesn’t get any hotter than neon. The Neon Mini M.A.C ($195) by Rebecca Minkoff is definitely an eye-catcher. This bag demands attention. Wear it with black, white, or neutrals for a pop-of-color focal point or go all-out and create your own color-blocked look with complementary hues.
Finally, you can’t forget “the little white bag” for summer and we saved the best (read most affordable) for last! ASOS carries this classically chic Quilted Lock Across Body Bag ($29.09)! White is so versatile, you can go ladylike and wear it with your favorite floral sundress or fun and flirty with a pair of jeans and a tank.
