Big, small, neutral, or bold – no summer look is complete without a handbag. That’s why we’ve gathered up our favourite trends we’re seeing this season on Instagram. We’ve found the chicest bag shapes, sizes, and colours that you can incorporate into your wardrobe in the coming months.
1. Cross-Body Bags
@shayna_apopofcolour shows us that these versatile bags are perfect for keeping your hands free for all your summer adventures. These pair well with just about anything, making them a must-have summer accessory.
2. Bright & Bold
Neon’s for summer? Not a groundbreaking trend, but we’re loving it, nonetheless. These neon bags are definitely statement pieces that deserve a time to shine this summer, just ask @Iamisland.
3. Straw Bags
Whether you’re heading to the beach, or just looking to add some additional flair to your outfits this summer, a straw bag is the way to go. With its natural material and low-key aesthetic, @working_chix shows us that these bags are effortlessly chic.
4. Canvas Tote Bags
Looking for the ultimate grab-and-go bag for this summer? Look no further than @justinebrouill. These bags are perfect for heading to your local farmer’s market or just heading out for a beach day.
5. Half-Moon Bags
Alongside the cascade of oversized totes, we’re seeing the re-emergence of half-moon bags this summer, just like we see here with @winnspiration. Achieve your best #OOTD with this 90’s-inspired design.
6. Beaded Bags
Elevate your next summer outfit that’s equal parts edgy and playful. With a variety of silhouettes and colours, @chrisellelim shows us that these beaded handbags are the latest Y2K trend to make a comeback.
7. Bucket Bags
A mix of function and fashion, the bucket bag is all the rage this summer. Bucket bags, like the one modeled here by @sissychacon, are a great way to stay on trend without compromising functionality and storage.
8. Mini Bags
Less is more with this trend! The return of the mini bag is all about decadence and truly more of accent piece. We’d definitely suggest incorporating one of these into your summer accessory rotation just like @taneshaawasthi.
