One of the simplest ways to update and transition your wardrobe for the new season is through accessories. The first in the series of on-trend buys to get for spring and summer, I’ve gathered my top 9 picks in handbags for 2015. These picks are great for gals on a budget!
The Little Black Bag Yes, you already own a few but there’s always room for another. This pick from Topshop ($57) is not a cross body version, think modern Jackie O. Big enough to carry your wallet, sunnies, and a couple of beauty staples and you’ll look chic running out the door.
The Back Pack The carry all of CARRY ALL – the back pack is back! It’s been here for a while but ideal for those going to music festivals this summer. This 90’s throwback is part minimal and statement worthy. This black leather option from DailyLook ($45) will also be great when traveling this summer.
Classic Tote Totes are timeless. This one from Topshop ($125) will keep you on trend with the 70s vibe inspired suede. You will be keeping this tote for years to come.
Bowler Bag This year’s satchel, the bowler bag, has been featured all over the runway from Prada to Carven. There are different versions but this pick from River Island ($38) is clean and effortless; also incorporates the black and white trend. A statement piece to take you from day to night.
Boho Fringe The 70’s fringe is simply translated in this functional leather bag from Modcloth ($65). It’s boho with the right amount Woodstock, reminiscent of Ferragamo’s Spring/ Summer 2015 collection.
Woven Bags Particularly popular during the summer months, woven bags have been spotted on the runways of Dolce & Gabbana and Michael Kors. This resort classic may become your summer favorite because of the lightweight materials. This pick from Daily Look ($89) wins all around for mixing trends: the ladylike handle, woven texture, and shoulder strap.
Cross-Body This featured pick from ASOS ($47) makes a statement while staying functional; small enough to be on trend and easy enough to wear for every day wear. The deep blue is neutral enough to carry any casual outfit throughout the day.
Bucket Bag The bucket bag was BIG at the end of 2014. Valentino, Tory Burch, and Saint Laurent featured the bucket bag in their collections BUT the favorite came from Mansur Gavriel, which quickly sold out from Barneys New York. This pick is from Vince Camuto ($148).
The Saddle Bag Again 70’s vibe and very bohemian, the saddle bag takes on traditional for the modern girl. Another carry-all pick from Daily Look ($50), an affordable dupe for the Chloe “Small Marcie” Leather Cross body Bag.
Which will be your go-to bag this Spring and Summer?
