Summer’s hottest handbags are here and if the Spring/Summer 2022 runways have anything to say about this year’s trends, expect saturated, rainbow colors (per the catwalks at Dior, Loewe, and Chanel), soft textures (as seen at JW Anderson, Fendi, and Cult Gaia), and a ton reimagined basket bags (courtesy of KHAITE and Balenciaga, to name a few).
Now’s the time to swap out your beloved black leather tote and suede crossbody for something fresh, fun, and worthy of pairing with your favorite summer outfit. Take a cool woven bag with you from the beach to the pool to dinner or kick it out of neutral by hanging a funky-colored handbag from the crook of your arm. What’s fun in the sun without your favorite accessory?
