For carrying your essentials in expert style.
We talk a lot about what’s trending in fashion. From the lilac hue to the slingback heel to the rainbow spectrum of pantsuits you’re bound to encounter in any fast fashion chain. But even if you’re dressed to the nines wearing an outfit you know is fire, grabbing the ratty shoulder bag of the hook before heading out the door can kind of smother the flames. You know the one I mean. The shoulder strap is fraying at the seams, there are mysterious scratch marks climbing the leather, and you’ll be damned if you let anyone see the makeup marks inside.
Bags and shoes are extremely fun to shop for because, hello, you don’t have to slip into a changing room or think too hard about how you’ll wear them. However, the trends seem to change even more rapidly when we’re talking accessories. My suggestion? Splurge on your staple bags – a black shoulder bag or a nude clutch – and buy a few fun, trendy pieces to throw your essentials in for the season.
Here are the only three bags you’ll need this season.
The Straw Bag
The woven basket material has you dreaming of beach days, but it’s also adorable for pairing with springy pastel hues and ladylike ensembles.
Playground cool. Backpacks are popping up in stores everywhere, and since they’re hands-free, I’m all about it. #momlife
The Circle Bag
There’s no better way to give your look a little more dimension than by adding a circular bag. It’s somehow trendy and classic at once, like the bag of choice for a modern Grace Kelly.
There you have it, bag enthusiasts. The straw bag, the backpack, and the circle bag, are three trends you’ll want in your accessory stash this season. With the right accents, dressing up is all the more fun.
