What kind of Bags goes with Summer?

Summer handbags don’t have to be beachy; they have to go in with the season’s laid-back atmosphere.

Handbags, according to Abbe Held, creative director of the Kooba handbag label, “do not have real seasons.” However, she prefers “softer, more open” styles for her summer bags. “It can look harsh when you’re wearing tank tops and dresses and carrying a hard, huge purse,” she explains.

Basket Bags  

Straw accessories are no longer just for the beach; they may be a vital player in your wardrobe starting in the spring.

Straw, jute, and wicker bags are lighter than leather and hence more laid-back and can offer a boho touch to everyday clothes or tone down sharper pieces.

Do you want something that will last a little longer? Look for leather accents, which provide a more solid silhouette and are more resistant to wear and tear.

Bags are worn across the body

Don’t worry, light packers: you won’t have to tote around a bulky bag if you don’t want to. Cross-body bags, like airy dresses, seem liberating in the summer since they free up your hands to do other things (holding ice creams or a glass of wine at a BBQ, perhaps).

The straw half-moon style from & Other Stories shouts summer, but go for leather if you want something more seasonal.

Crochet bags  

Whatever the warm-weather months have in store for you, there’s a bag style for 2022 that will fit right in. Are you planning a trip to an exotic summer destination? To bring the vacation vibes to life, go for a crochet style (Instagram OOTD-ready). Are you planning any summer hikes? Your new summer best friend could be a mesh sling bag.

You won’t be able to resist reaching for these bags once you get your hands on them. You’ll adore these if you run, not if you walk.

Bags in vibrant hues  

Summer doesn’t mean you have to leave your comfort zone because it’s hot outside. If wearing brights or florals seems intimidating, add color to your clothing with accessories.

The bolder, the better when it comes to bags. However, choose a more mature color for longer-lasting results, such as fuchsia or mustard yellow.

Day-to-night and all-year-round, innovative leather alternatives are a must-have. Allow yours to add a splash of color to workwear outfits (when you’re back in the office), black knitwear, and even a simple pair of jeans and a T-shirt.

And what about those who merely want to dip their toe into the trend? Orange is toned down with neutral white and black panels in Oliver Bonas’ color-blocked purse.

Evening bag suggestions

Opt for a shiny silver clutch (with or without a strap) or an off-white satin or silk clutch for the evening. A white and light grey snakeskin print, a floral pattern with the majority of colors in your spectrum, or a statement color like this deep rose pink one might work well for you.

Conclusion 

So, now that you’re aware of all the major bag trends for spring/summer 2022, you can pick the right style for you.

What Kind of Bag Goes With Spring?

Answering this question can be both easy and hard. As in general everyone’s style is different and not everyone will be wearing the same. And one must also have in mind that trends change every year. So whatever bag was trendy last year, probably won’t be trending the next.

You can have an idea of what kind of bags will go great with spring, then a good idea is to look at well-known influencers or fashion bloggers or at fashion weeks and see what kind of bags are attendees wearing. They tend to start the trends.

It is also known that influencers or fashion bloggers do have more high-end bags, that are most gifted to them. But you don’t have to worry if you can’t afford one. The internet is full of dupes or very similar ones that you can get for a lot of less.

You can just use what they have as simple inspiration and look for something that looks similar but it’s within your budget. You can simply get just inspired by the colors of their bags.

So, when it comes to colors, the bags that are perfect for spring are the ones that have neutral earthy colors (browns, naked ones), white, and pastels (pink, purple, green).

As well as in summer, straw bags are a great option and are probably a must if you are wearing a beautiful white dress or a white outfit. Definitively the white will highlight the brownish color of the straws and your look will be perfect.

Satchels, mini bags, and totes also make a great piece to wear during springtime. Blush, whites, and pastel pinks. But you can also wear yellow ones that are very bright.

Remember that if you are wearing more neutral colors, like jeans and white or light-colored tops, then a good bag color choice will be, for example, a yellow or brown one (usually more bright and dark colors). But if your outfit has darker colors, then the best choice would be a light-colored bag, maybe a pastel, white or sand color.

If you’re wearing a white outfit, then any color would be just fine, just choose the color of the vibe you’re wanting to transmit or depending on the style of your outfit.

Whatever style of bag you choose to pair with your spring outfits, have in mind that your bag should not only be a nice accessory that makes you look good. They also have to be functional, and you have to be able to fit at least the most important things. Those being your wallet and your phone as the minimum.

There are some bags (usually totes) that can hold our laptops, tablets, planners, and makeup bags. Isn’t that amazing? Choosing the right bag will also depend on where you’re going. For example, such big totes that carry everything and anything are a great option for work environments. While maybe a mini bag is great for a lunch with your friends.

A more elegant bag, maybe black, will be perfect for attending a wedding or an important event. A pastel one could be perfect for a dinner date too. It just all depends on the situation. So, just make sure, that whatever you choose, makes you feel good.

The 5 Most Popular Bags of Hermes

Some things never change even more when we’re looking for something big while still having value for our style, especially when it comes to classic bags. Hermes has some handbags that never go out of style.

So, you want to buy your first Hermes bag? We are 100% with you in this choice. After all, Hermes handbags are in a class apart in terms of unrivaled quality and luxury, status, exclusivity, and style. There is simply no other designer like Hermes. Unlike other designers, the term “entry-level” does not apply to Hermes handbags.

In terms of the simple price range, the entry-level at Hermes would be a scarf or a belt. For handbags, Hermes offers only the expensive and the luxury. However, this price difference is not due to the difference in quality: the more expensive bags are priced as such because of their rarity and exclusivity (ie a $5,000 Evelyn bag is no less quality than a $50,000 Birkin, instead of Evelyn it is more common and accessible).

The real differentiating factors between Hermes bags are their purpose and function. This is the beauty of Hermes: the brand only offers high luxury and quality products, but guarantees that these products are used as much as they are beautiful.

So which Hermes bag should you buy first?

It is important to analyze two factors: function and purpose.

The function: no matter how pretty it is, a bag is good for carrying your belongings. The first question you should ask yourself is: what am I going to take in my Hermes bag? Are you carrying a laptop, books, or makeup? Are you carrying lots of supplies for a long day of chores? Or do you need to travel light and carry your phone and some credit cards?

In its line, Hermes offers several bags, clutches, bags, messengers, handbags, and shoulder bags. Your preference is, of course, another consideration: Are you a big organizer who wants multiple pockets inside your purse? Or do you prefer a big, open space inside your bag? It seems that Hermes has taken everything into account in the design of their bags, as there is a Hermes bag for all tastes and styles.

Objective: Where are you taking your Hermes bag? Are you a businesswoman in need of something luxurious and durable, more subtle enough for the professional space? Are you about to go out for a nice dinner or event and need something incredibly modern to carry your essentials? Or are you looking for a daily transport you can trust to get any job done? This is where style and material choice come into play.

Some Hermes bags are made with clou or feet on the bottom so you can rest the bag without damaging the leather. Hermes also offers several material choices, with some like Clemence and Epsom leather exhibiting much more durable and water-resistant qualities than other leather options, making these bags perfect for everyday transport.

Your needs should directly influence the style and construction of your first Hermes bag. Below, we’ve broken down some of our favorite Hermes bags, discussing how and why they fit into different situations and lifestyles, usability, and price.

  1. Hermes Birkin

No bag comes close to Birkin in terms of luxury, quality, status, and exclusivity. Like Kelly, Birkin is named after a cultural icon: singer, actress, and model Jane Birkin. The Birkin bag is the finest leather product offered by Hermes, with a unique silhouette, solid leather construction, and heavy precious metal hardware.

  • Hermes kelly

Perhaps one of the finest Hermes handbags to date, the Kelly is incredibly beautiful and elegant. Named after the late actress, fashion icon and princess of Monaco Grace Kelly, this bag is both a cultural icon and a fashion statement, instantly elevating the status of the wearer. Even if it errs on the more expensive side of the Hermes line of handbags, the Kelly is surprisingly usable and appropriate in a variety of environments.

  • Hermes Jige Elan Clutch

A beautiful and romantic bag, the Jige Elan embodies perfection in its small size. Without a doubt Hermes, the clutch features the H leather clasp with signature flap. The bag was actually a gift from Jean Guerrand, son-in-law of Emile Hermes, to one of his daughters-in-law, and bears the creator’s name, Guerrand’s initials, hence the name ‘Jig.

  • Hermes Garden party bag

The Garden Party is an essential staple in the Hermes tote line, being the casual do-it-all tote bag. While the GP isn’t a huge bag, its wide, cavernous interior can carry almost anything you want. Available in three sizes: S / 30, M / 36, and L / 39, there is a Garden Party for all women.

  • Hermes Evelyn Messenger

Modeled after a horse saddlebag, the Evelyn is infused with Hermes’ special heritage. Made just to carry your contents securely and slung over your shoulder, this bag is perfect for those on the go who want to travel lightly and in style.
