Atlanta’s own Bella Bag shares the season’s hottest trends.
“Ladylike silhouettes are a classic — they never really go out of style, they just come back into the spotlight every few seasons. This summer, ladylike bags with retro touches and vintage styles are the most coveted. The classic shape pairs well with almost any look, and their structured construction makes them a durable style to carry. If you invest in any handbag, it should be one of these.”
“Mini bags began popping up on the runways and the street this fall, and there’s no sign of the trend slowing down this spring and summer. Luckily, this is a trend that can be embraced without spending a lot on a piece you only wear a few times. Invest in a mini-version of a classic style from a heritage brand — it will be the trend piece that you can wear for seasons to come.”
“Totes are the quintessential summer bag — they stylishly hold everything you need and carry you from the office to the beach. This summer, we’re seeing a rising interest in bright colors in the tote style. Choose a classic piece like the Louis Vuitton Neverfull, and it will last you many years to come.”
“Saddle bag styles are having a moment. They’ve been on all the runways, fashion bloggers and street-style stars since fall and are definitely the ‘it’ bag of the moment. We’re all about investing in classic, iconic, well-made designer pieces here at Bella Bag, so the Hermes Evelyne is our go-to piece when we’re looking to incorporate this big trend into our day-to-day looks.”
“This season brings a bit more fun to the classic silhouette. Think bright colors, fun textures and vintage throwbacks. Bucket bags are perfect for all day wear, but one in a bright color or a vintage piece with metallic accents can also be easily transitioned from day to night.”
