Spring/ Summer 2018 Handbags

One item that women need no matter what are handbags! I never leave the house without a handbag. I am also constantly changing my bags around by season and outfit. Whether it's a classic style or something more trendy, these are this seasons hottest styles. Get your hands on these Spring/ Summer hot handbags! I have picked out a few styles that are worth trying out this season- from circle shapes to metal details. There is a style out there for you. Shop some of my favorites on a budget below!

Circle Bag-

It’s the shape of the season! If there’s one trend you want to hit, it’s definitely this! No matter what color, fabric, or size - circles are the new shape. I’m loving this new Brahmin ‘Lane’ cross body bag! First, I love the color. White is a color that goes well with everything! Seriously, everything. Another reason this bag is perfect for spring/ summer is the faux crocodile skin texture. It’s leather and textured so you don’t have to worry about getting this baby dirty. Third, the size is perfect and holds all the necessary essentials. I can even fit a pair of flats if I really need to! Shop this exact Brahmin bag here!

Belt Bag-

If you’re on the run, never feel like you have enough hands, or are looking for something versatile, this is the bag for you!  The easy going everyday essential. I’ve raved about all the reasons belt bags are amazing here but no joke, they are amazing! This Kamilah Willacy one in particular is amazing because it can also be turned into a clutch or a shoulder bag! Three styles in one! How cool is that right?! I’m all about versatility! You can go from running errands all day to date night in a matter of seconds with this bag. Plus this bold colorful print is perfect for Spring/ Summer! The colors are so happy and go well with anything from black to other festive summer colors or patterns. The hardware touch is also really cool and it makes it super easy to open and close the bag. 


This one is a no brainer and it is always in style. A clutch is a must no matter what season it is. However, this summer, try a bold color! Maybe a bright pink, royal blue, yellow, or red. An addition of a colored accessory can complete change a look! Use a clutch to brighten up a look- it's the easiest way to do so. I love clutches of all sizes but recently I've found, that the bigger they are, the easier it is to transport all of my stuff. Also, this Spring/ Summer, try ones that have extra embellishments like fringe or beads. 

Straw Bag-

Get ready for the beach babes because straw bags are still going strong! There is nothing has says "summer" more than a straw bag. Why dive into this trend? The straw bags are super lightweight making it easier to carry heavier items in the summer like your water bottle. Straw bags also come in a nice light neutral color. This makes it easy to match all of your summer clothing. Last but not least, straw bags are perfect to carry on a regular day and you can take it to the beach. Super versatile for spring and summer. 

Pastel -

The delicate colors are a nice twist for spring and summer seasons. If you aren't into bright colors, that is completely fine. Try something a little more subtle like a pretty pastel. The softer pastel palette doesn't scream "look at me" but it politely says "look at me sitting so pretty". Whether you try out a mini bag, cross body, or a square doctor shaped bag, pastels are a pretty addition to any outfit. Pastel bags are also a good color palette to look into when searching for a party piece. Pastel colors look great in sequins and sparkle like no other.  

Metal Handle Handbag-

Simple, minimal, and elegant. This style is a clean look for spring and summer. Metal is the trendy factor here so look out for a piece where the handle is a nice piece. Search for round metal handles, cool zippers, or metal closures. I prefer a sturdy metal but that is still slightly lightweight so it doesn't get too heavy when you carry everything.
