5 Handbags You NEED This Summer!
You may have noticed you don’t find too much fashion on Momma Lew and that is because I have zero fashion sense whatsoever. I always say that my 6 year old daughter has more than I do! So, I was very excited when fellow New Jersey Blogger Cori from Everyday Cori invited me to my favorite outlet mall – The Mills at Jersey Gardens, for their annual Handbag Event. Cori gave us some great tips on what this year’s handbag trends are and I would love to share them with you!
Baskets & Poms
The perfect fun-in-the-sun beach day bag is made out of wicker and raffia straw! This summer you will find that the basket-inspo has gone to new levels with wicker, creating a bag-meets-basket style that is cute, chic and trendy!
When it’s time to come home from a day in the sun and sand and it’s time to head out to dinner or for a night out, switch to your ring handle bag. The circular hardware trend makes a bold statement. You can still have your beachy vibe with wooden handles or for a more polished look for work or a night out it’s metal rings.
I am loving these mini bags!! From crossbody to backpacks, you will find mini bags popping up everywhere. They’re perfect for the summer when you just want to carry a few things, be hands free and ditch a bulky bag!
Guitar Straps + Add On Accessories
This season take your boring bag and add some fun details!! This year we see a lot of handbags with a lot of detail like fringe and hardware. There are also lots of fun accessories that you can customize your bag with! Think tassles, furry poms, charms and even guitar straps!
One of my favorite trends is the romantic florals! You will find blush being the “unofficial” neutral of the year, but romantic florals in contrasting hues such as navy and magenta will give any neutral outfit just the right amount of pop!
