This summer is all about bags! They’re the perfect accessory for any outfit and provide functionality to boot. Being that it’s such an easy accessory that dresses up any outfit, brands are always keeping up with the ever-changing on-demand styles. Here is a guide to what bags are hot this summer and what bags you should consider leaving home.

Circle bags
Circle bags are all the craze right now. Circular straw bags are specifically very trendy and are the perfect summer accessory.

Vintage bags
Time to raid your mother’s closet- vintage bags are in. We’re throwing it back to tiny shoulder bags and pouches adorned with sequins. Vintage bags are making a come back.

Wooden beads
Wooden beads on a bag are something we never expected, but now that it’s here it’s all we want. You can go simple and go with a small purse made with brown beads, or experiment with shapes and bright colors.

Bright colors
We all know that neon is a major trend this year, and now it is expanding to bags. Add a pop of color and flair to your outfit without adding too much by using a neon bag.

Net bags
Net bags used to be for the beach, but now they’re making their way to every day. The mesh design makes for an adorable purse, but be careful you don’t lose anything through the net!

Acrylic bags are fun to experiment with, because the options for shapes, colors, and sizes are endless. Play around with a simple black or go bold with a fun design. The choice is yours!

Mini backpacks
Backpacks are the perfect bag if you need a little bit more space to carry things but still want to look fashionable. They also are way more comfortable and easy to carry around than a regular purse! Mini backpacks are totally in right now and look cute with just about every outfit.
