The Top 5 Bag Styles of Summer '19

Updating your closet for the coming months doesn’t just mean pulling out tank tops and shorts--a splurge on a new summer bag is equally vital. Sure, it may hold your sunnies, sunscreen, and other summer day essentials, but this accessory also makes the ultimate fashion statement. You’ll see the following five styles on arms all summer long—choose one (or more!) that speaks to your personal vibe:

  1. Wicker

From beach to street, this summer staple can be carried anywhere under the sun. Fashion icon Jane Birkin was even known for carrying a woven-style basket as an alternative to her usual purse.

2. Floral

Take a trip to the tropics without blowing your travel budget by sporting a printed tote. Bold-colored blooms will effectively transport you to the Caribbean sans boarding the plane.

3. Transparent

A clear vinyl bag’s see-through style gives onlookers a peek at all the chic summer essentials you carry—bonus points for bringing a bold phone case along to stand out inside your satchel.

4. Circular

Go gaga for geometry with a bag that mimics the shape of the sun. Often designed as a crossbody, the style not only serves looks but is accessible as well.

5. Beaded

The premier DIY art product gets an ultra-chic upgrade in the form of intricately-crafted handbags. A popular style of the 90s era, the shiny, eye-catching design is suitable for both day and night.
