By Unefemme @DejaPseu

Bags Of Straw…

Whimsical straw bags are a hot trend, and a fun option for casual outfits. They’re available in a wide range of sizes and prices, with more structured styles toward the pricier end of the spectrum. Totes like the one above with embellishment or colorful accents are the most common style I’ve seen.

If you prefer something more structured, here’s a fun take on a “fisherman’s basket” style with both a top handle and crossbody strap.

In The Bucket…

A leather bucket bag like this one hits that middle ground between polished and casual. The faux pearl studs are a nice touch!

This netting and leather bag makes me think of sunny days on the French Riviera and Jane Birkin, pre-Birkin bag.  (I’m predicting this is going to be a cult favorite.)

Featherweight Champ…

If you’ll be traveling this summer, you could do worse than this pretty le Pliage nylon bag for lightweight day-to-evening wear. I love that Longchamp is now offering so many styles with a crossbody strap!

Do you switch out your bags seasonally? What kind of bag says “summer” to you?
