These Are the It Bags of Summer 2018

As you may have noticed, we Who What Wear editors are constantly on It bag alert. We scour the runways, street style, Instagram, and the arms of the coolest celebs to determine what the top designer handbags to buy of any given season will be. Accordingly, it's time to talk about summer 2018. Naturally, Chloé, Gucci, and Loewe have new It bags on the market, but there are also a few more affordable trending options this season (music to your ears, right?).

While straw bags have undoubtedly become summer staples, this season we've noticed more structured It bags than usual this time of year, and we're definitely not mad about it. Among the trends we're seeing are PVC, lucite, and logos—all of which show no signs of fading anytime soon. So are you ready for a seasonal handbag upgrade? See the It bags of summer 2018 in action, and shop them below.
