Summer is here! This means we all need the perfect tote for the pool, the beach, and traveling to fabulous summer destinations! Since I am in the market for a cute summer tote, I decided to compile the most fabulous on trend, and timeless summer totes, in various price ranges, into this post.
Straw, shades of tan and brown, pom poms, embellishments, and shades of red, are all hot trends in handbags for summer 2016. I love having a classic summer tote on hand which can be worn with a casual outfit, or a dressier ensemble when a roomy tote is needed. (let’s face it, when you have kids sometimes the cute shoulder bag gets left behind and your tote is paired with a dressy outfit despite the unfashionable nature of the look)
I love the idea of an on trend, hot off the runway, embellished tote! The pom pom tote pictured above embodies all the hot handbag trends of the season, and it is super cute to boot! It will also be perfect for beach, and pool days. I am definitely leaning towards the navy straw tote as my summer 2016 tote.
The red totes are also calling my name. I would love a classic, red tote which can easily be worn during the summer months, as well as into the fall, and winter seasons. Red is an important color for the upcoming fall season; and it plays well with the 1970s inspired color palette for both summer, and fall. A red tote definitely has longevity with the current trends; plus it is a timeless bag that can be worn for years!
Which totes are your favorite for the summer 2016 season?
