Handbag Trends: Spring/Summer 2013

For any woman, handbags are understandably a vital part of one’s wardrobe. Handbags serve the purpose of carrying all of our necessary items, while at the same time adding another visual statement to one’s outfit. Handbags can be fun and functional at the same time. With summer quickly approaching, I thought it would be a good idea to showcase handbag trends for the warmer months.

1. Cool Metallics: You may be sweating from the heat, but a metallic purse in a chill tone will cool you off. Metallic handbags are great for more formal summer occasions, such as weddings.

2. Crossbody Satchel: Lighten up your load with a small purse that holds the essentials (phone, wallet, gum, chapstick, etc). With the rays beating down, a breezy satchel eliminates sweaty discomfort.

3. Bold Brights: It’s summer! Celebrate the barbeques, pool time, tanning, and lazy days with a bright handbag. Lemon yellow, poppy red, and cobalt blue are just a few colors to put some spring in your step.

4. Totes: For the times when you need to carry more that just the necessary, turn to a tote! Totes are absolutely perfect for trips to the pool, picnics, and they double as a great airplane carry-on.
