The Summer Handbag Trend Is All About Color: Don't Sleep on These Cute Picks


After the year we had, it's no surprise bright colors took such a hold on 2021's fashion trends. There was probably a time when I'd present you with a vibrant handbag and tell you it'd bring the perfect pop of color to any outfit, but now I'm going to show you five different bags in five very different hues and tell you to wear them with all the colors and patterns your heart desires. Do you have a pair of checkered pants begging to be paired with that bright green Gabbi bag? What about cow-print denim? It'd look amazing with the purple shoulder bag below. Keep scrolling for more colorful outfit ideas you can wear long after summer's over.

Copy Editor, Branded Content

Aralyn Beaumont joined Who What Wear as the copy editor for branded content after a career in food media. Years of poring over intricate recipes with a fine-tooth comb and working with high-profile chefs has prepared her well for working with fashion's top brands while honoring Who What Wear's voice. Her background as a research editor makes her a finicky editor who will probably care too much about making sure all copy is as factually accurate and aligned with the house style guide as can be. Maybe it's because she's a Gemini, but her personal style is impossible to pin down: One day you'll see her in a turtleneck sweater tucked into a midi skirt with heeled boots, and the next, she'll be wearing mom jeans, a white Hanes tee, and classic Vans. At the end of the day, her style reflects her various moods. Sometimes it will be feminine and elegant, and others it will be grungy or androgynous. Certain things will always remain constant, though. She'll forever be on the hunt for the perfect pair of high-waisted jeans.
