Summer is coming quicker than we realize and of course you need a summer purse for each occasion. Here in Charlotte, summer is here in full force, gotta love the south! I remember when I was studying fashion merchandising, and I just loved when we would get into the handbags topic! I just love how they pull your outfit together. Based on what I’ve learned in college and the research I’ve done on handbags I’ve made a list of the best purses for each mood or occasion you have!
1. The Beach Bag
This Lily Pulitzer bag is perfect for a beach day! It’s colorful and doesn’t look flimsy like some other beach bags. You can see the deets for this bag here!
2. The Crossbody Purse
The Cameron Street Clarise crossbody from Kate Spade is perfect for on the go! I have a Kate Spade crossbody myself, and it’s perfect for when I go to day events in Charlotte. This is perfect for an event where you can’t wear a huge bag because it would be too much.
3. The Fun Evening Clutch
When it’s summer and you go out on the rooftops of the bars, it is important to have a clutch that screams summer! I for one, love to wear a solid colored dress and really cute clutch with all the summer colors. Find this fun strawberry clutch at Far Fetch.
4. The Festival Purse
With Coachella starting festival season off to a great start, there are many more music festivals to come! When going to a festival, a cross-body is key, but it has to be whimsical and be extremely on trend.
5. The Mini Backpack
This is perfect for the college girl who wants to mix fashion with school efficiently for her summer classes. This trendy mini backpack is definitely fit for the occasion. New Chic has a fun holographic one, for my ladies who love early 2000s trends.
6. The Weekender Bag
Who doesn’t love a fun weekend away! Wouldn’t it be nice to have a really cute bag to pack everything with so you look chic to the event, while unpacking, packing and leaving?! I personally love weekender bags because I have a slight obsession with really cute luggage. Find this cutie at Madden Girl.
7. The Whimsical Summer Purse
This summer purse is for those times where you really want to be silly and wear something that takes you back to the good ol days! I love this Loewe purse, because you can wear it when your looking to turn heads!
8. The Statement Summer Purse
This is your go-to purse for when you’re wearing a fun print and need a purse to make a statement and have your outfits back 😉 I’m know what you’re thinking, “Isn’t that Chloe purse like $1000 dollars?!!” Yes it is, but this is just for inspiration if you don’t want to spend that much! There are plenty of dupes out there that will be sure to complement your everyday outfits. The statement purse is the purse that you wear shopping, or out to brunch with your girls! Honestly any occasion wear it’s perfectly fine to wear a bigger purse is great for the statement purse.
