Bags of Style

If, like me, you’re a bag person – who isn’t? – then this summer is proving very difficult. (And yes, we are very aware that this is “first world” difficult.) The variety and choice of spring/summer styles on the bag market are endless. From tiny to wooden, mesh to transparent, beaded to bumbag (fanny pack if you’re reading this State side) the list is endless. And very fabulous.

While most of them a extremely impractical – don’t expect to take more  than a bank card, some lippy and your phone – they are worth the risk of leaving that massive makeup bag, which you NEVER end up using when you are out anyway, at home. They are pretty, colorful, chic and hopefully not a micro-trend we see leaving anytime soon (looking at your teeny sunglasses).

The transparent look has been around of a while and definitely cemented into the style bible by Celine’s shopping bag. The fanny pack – I do love that word – has been creeping it’s way onto our waists for a while and Gucci is the leader of the pack. Sorry! And when it comes to eclectic wooden designs, Cult Gaia is the only label you need to know. But there have been some more affordable newcomers to the summer bag party, and two of our favorites are New York designer Susan Alexandra with her nostalgic, childlike beaded bags for grown ups. And Staud, who can’t seem to do any wrong, the brand is the epitome of effortless cool girl.

Whether pairing yours with simple mom jeans and a nice blouse – very French It-girl – or adding one to a full on street style fashion week look, there is one to suit everyone. My personal favourites are the beaded Susan Alexandra for their whimsical candy store vibes, bringing out the ‘little girl who always loved playing with her mums purse’ in all of us. Fashion doesn’t need to be too serious, so express your sense of humour on your arm.
