A handbag is so much more than simply a vessel in which to carry and store needed items. There are few women who do not consider the aesthetical value of each purse they choose to carry. In addition to being a great way to streamline a look, the right handbag can also pull an ensemble neatly together. The following are a few of the top handbag looks you can expect to glimpse for the summer of 2014.
Summer time is the perfect time for the versatility of a tote bag. Whether you choose one for its easy care fabric to carry all your day trip or beach essentials or you favor some of the more stylish resort collections from the top designers, these handbags provide you with the means to combine trendy style with practicality.
Textures and Designs Galore!
For a handbag that really ties things together, be on the lookout for the latest in textures and designs. Faux animal skin prints continue to be a popular item this summer while those handbags embellished with crystal, beads, fringe, velvet, studs and more give you the option to really make your look pop.
The retro look seamlessly melds classic lines with today’s innovative materials and designs. This results in cutting edge handbags that enable you to effortlessly pull together the perfect outfit. Boxy designs will dominate the retro look this season. Choose from smart little numbers with carrying handles or designs with cross body straps for more versatility.
Backpacks Offer the Perfect Combo
The formerly lowly backpack previously delegated to the unstylish method of schlepping books and other necessities from class to class gets a serious style makeover for the summer. Vibrant colors and chic designs give these backpacks a large dollop of class and polish unlike anything seen on campus.
Small and Chic
If you are like many women, you want to downsize and lighten up for the warm weather. Small handheld purses and clutches offer you the optimal way to do so. Designs include simple clutches with fold over tops that hide inner storage to more substantial purses with handles and clasps that open with the flick of your wrist.
Usher in the glorious summer weather with one of the trend-setting handbags highlighted above. Choose from your favorite designs and colors to make your outfit pop whether you are headed to the beach or a night out on the town.
