We’re rapidly approaching that time of year again: it’s the season for packing your bags to get out of town! As summer inches closer, we’ve rounded up our favorite designer handbags to inspire your packing list with a little luxury— no matter what type of destination you’re headed for!
Whether you’re off to the British Virgin Islands, French Polynesia or the Maldives, these type of locales call for having fun with color, patterns and especially textures. We love embracing straw and wicker inspiration like this Gucci Straw Large Top Handle Tote, this Christian Dior multi-colored tote, or this Prada Midollino Canapa Pesca Tote to carry along any beach essentials (like some oversized Dior sunglasses and plenty of SPF).
Gallivanting through a variety of countries and cultures calls for practicality without compromising any chic. Embrace the quintessentially-European neutral color pallet that can be worn with just about anything. We suggest going for a hands free backpack like this Louis Vuitton Sorbonne, or a cross body that zips (to prevent against pick pockets!) like this YSL Lou Camera Bag or this GG Marmont velvet shoulder bag.
Cities are a magnet for culture and style anytime of year, but you can especially bring the heat come summertime! We love bags that make a statement like this Chanel Small Boy Handbag this Dior crossbody, or this Saint Laurent suede wallet on a chain.
HOLIDAY IN THE HAMPTONS
Whether you’re headed to The Hamptons, or another neighboring seaside destination like Cape Cod or Nantucket, the New England inspired style is one we love to emulate this time of year. The quintessential all-American look is brimming with hues of red, white and blue like this Gucci Ophidia Mini Bag or classic neutrals like this Gucci wicker small shoulder bag.
POOLSIDE AT A LUXE RESORT
It’s inevitable that we’ll all be poolside at some point this summer, so have fun with those bright color hues that the season is known for. We love this clear Chanel Flap Bag for a fun daytime pop. And for a nighttime soiree? Try a bold blue like this Hermes Halzan mini bag.
