Summer is so close you can feel it. After a long winter, you’re probably getting excited for warm weather, outdoor dining, and maybe even a trip to the beach. With the season changing, it’s the perfect time for a wardrobe refresh. And an easy way to update your wardrobe is with a new accessory, especially if you’re embracing the current summer 2021 bag trends.
The right bag has the magical ability to transform even your most well-worn looks. Your favorite pair of jeans looks totally different with a leather hobo than it does with a structured wicker tote. And your go-to slip dress feels like a brand new look when you trade your bucket bag for a cloud-style clutch.
The most important factor to remember when choosing a bag is that it feels like summer. Bright or soft colors are a welcome change from winters darker hues, and heavy material can be replaced with wicker and raffia for city life and beach visits alike.
Ahead, find the best of the best when it comes to summer bag styles: everything from pastel hues to chunky chains.
