Summer is arriving fast, and with the warm weather comes so many fun new trends. Today I’m talking about all the latest trends when it comes to the one thing almost every woman wears on a daily basis… a handbag!
This week, Amazon.ca re-launched their online handbag shop where they now have the largest selection of handbags in Canada! Of course with that many purses, how do you choose?!? Well, don’t you worry! Today I’m guiding you through the three biggest trends in handbags for this summer. I’ve rounded up my favourites styles including some amazing affordable finds as well as a few luxe designer pieces!
Here are the three styles of handbags you will want to add to your wardrobe this season.
The Camera Bag:
The camera bag is absolutely perfect for summer with its small size and easy to carry cross-body strap. What sets the camera bag apart from other cross-body bags is its uncomplicated structured shape and zippered top.
The Straw Bag:
Handbags made of natural textures such as straw, wicker or wood are always popular come summertime. This year designers are contrasting soft natural textures with bold details like pretty tassels or a crisp bow. Many of the latest straw handbags are also beautifully structured, almost reminiscent of the much loved picnic basket.
The Stylish Backpack:
Long gone are the days when backpacks were only for students. The newest backpacks are designed to be sleek and stylish with soft leather and pretty hardware. Many backpack styles are also available as convertibles and can also be worn over one shoulder like a traditional handbag.
