Beach towels, water bottles and some sun cream. We better do not leave the house without those lifesavers in the next few weeks. Of course, the bags in which we carry around our essentials are just as important. Therefore, this week’s Trendy Tuesday edition is all about the most popular summer bag trends of the season.
1. Straw Bags
You could name them the ultimate summer companions – at least when it comes to bags. Apparently, straw bags are not only made to head to the next sunbed. They even spread the positive beach vibes in the city. Since labels like Gucci, Miu Miu or Dolce & Gabbana showed them in all sorts of styles, such as basket bags or crossbody bags, there is a whole selection to choose from for this spring/summer season. Well, and if you are in the mood anyway, let’s add in a straw hat for the perfect match of accessories.
2. Beaded Bags
Initially inspired by the design of the British label Shrimps, beaded bags made their huge breakthrough this summer. Whether they show up in a neutral white or in bold summer colors, the pearl bags sweeten up an everyday look such as a chic dinner ensemble. This means, you can pair them with a romantic dress and sandals or with a casual jumpsuit and sneakers. Either way, they make the glittery and pearly cherry on the cake.
3. Belt Bags
After they showed up at Gucci and Alexander Wang at their last fall collections, there is no way to pass by those belt bags – also known as fanny packs. Due to their practicability, they definitely had to become the it-bags for this summer as well. The 90s comeback even makes us hold our ice creams with two hands – no worries to drop or hold your bag in an uncomfortable way anymore. Just wrap it around your waist or wear it over your shoulder. A belt bag is the perfect addition for every summer look.
P.S. If you are up for an even fancier trend, Nike makes you carry your fanny pack on their new Nike Benassi "Fanny Pack" slides. So why not carry around your sun cream in your shoes for once?
