I can get pretty obsessed with textures no matter the season – and my favorite way to bring that to light is through my handbags! I’m currently on vacation and the beautiful warm weather has me in full summer mode, so I thought I’d round up the four summer handbag styles I’ve been carrying on repeat. With Memorial Day weekend under way, one of these is sure to elevate your look. Plus, I know they’re all on top of any fashion girl’s shopping list!

Whether you’re doused in color or rocking neutral hues, leave it to a textured bag to add the perfect finishing touch to your outfit.

Straw Bag

No doubt straw bags are the hottest ticket item at the moment. They’re basically the chicest item out there – adding a feminine and vintage touch to any look. Straw bags make great companions for the cobblestone streets of Greece (as seen above), relaxing on a sandy beach, or partaking in any fun festivities outdoors. They come in a variety of shapes, but round ones are my favorite!

Woven and Knitted Bag

Following close behind the straw bag are woven and knitted bags. Think a fishing net-like pouch or a mesh shopper. The rope-like texture and woven patterns scream warm weather like no other. Pair it with a pair of bright flats, a pleated midi, and stack of bangles. The best part about this trend is that it’s cheap! Don’t mistaken cheap for not chic though… In terms of style, the woven/knitted bag sits high on my favorites.

Also, be on the look out for beaded bags this summer. You might find a gorgeous net bag adorned with slivers of beads or a mini tote constructed entirely of beads. No matter which one you prefer, this style will take you back to your childhood dreams and make a playful addition to your wardrobe. And with a variety of colors to pick from, you’ll find the perfect match in no time.

Ring Handle Bags

Saving a classic with an edge for last, meet the ring handle bag. This bag style is nothing new to the fashion scene but it packs power in the styling game. From Chloe’s Nile bag to Staud’s bucket bags, the ring handle has mass appeal even in 2018. It offers structure that the other three don’t – and is equal parts playful and cool. Try a mini wristlet or a large shopper.
