Summer is upon us, this means it is time to ensure we are carrying the ultimate IT bags for the summer 2017 season. There are three handbags which stand out this summer, and are must-haves for anyone who covets the ultimate IT bag.
You might be wondering, how is an IT bag determined? Well, I have studied social media, sales trends, and also what people are carrying here on the streets of the San Francisco Bay Area. While some bags may appear to have status online, they don’t always have that same IT power on the street. If a bag is spotted regularly online via social media, and on the streets, plus it sells out quickly, then it has achieved coveted IT bag status.
Without further adieu, here are the three IT handbags to have this summer.

Chloe has done it again! They have conquered the IT bag market. The new Chloe Nile handbag is offered in two sizes, and has been deemed the “bracelet bag.” It features a fun, golden bracelet which can be used as a top handle or as decoration. The mini version of this IT bag holds little more then keys and a lipstick, while the medium-sized version can easily be worn everyday as it holds a wallet, keys, lipstick, smart phone, and glasses without a hard case.
I have spotted this bag on multiple women throughout Silicon Valley. This bag is hot right now, and can only get hotter!
If you are seeking the ultimate IT bag for summer, this is it! I am definitely eyeing this bag in black, I think it is so chic! They are hard to find in stock online, but I did find a few! So if you want to add the Chloe Nile handbag to your collection now, you can find it online here-but act fast! They are selling faster than a New York minute.

Cult Gaia Ark Bag
The Cult Gaia Ark bag is hotter then hot. It also happens to be under $150! A-ma-zing! It is extremely rare for an IT bag to be so affordable! While this might not be the most practical of the IT bag family, it definitely wins in the unique style department. You can easily tie a scarf on the handle to make the bag match your outfit, or you can line the bag with a colorful scarf, allowing your own personal style to shine through the cracks of the bag. It is great for the beach, poolside, or as an everyday bag. Love!
This is a bag I have spotted on the arms of women here in the San Francisco Bay Area, plus it was carried by a lot of other fashion and style bloggers at the recent rewardStyle conference. The Cult Gaia Ark is a popular bag on the street, and via social media!

JW Anderson Pierce Bag
The JW Anderson Pierce Bag is getting hotter as we speak. This street style star first gained IT bag status last fall when it peppered the streets of New York at fashion week. The bag’s popularity has grown, and it has become a must-have bag for the summer 2017 season. Look for it in classic black, red, and seasonal dark blush. Swoon!
There is also a cross-body mini version available, so if carrying a bag in your forearm is not your thing. The cross-body version has a pretty chain strap which allows the bag to be worn as a shoulder bag, or cross body bag. Love!
I have spotted a few of these on the streets of San Francisco, but it really shined when I was in New York. This is the bag I get the most compliments on when I wear it, and I have had multiple women ask me how I got my hands on mine. This is a great IT bag to own if you want one which is a little bit on the rare side.
