Summer 2018 handbag trends are starting to pour onto store shelves, and city streets. One of the biggest trends in handbags for the summer season happens to be straw bags. This classic beach-side bag started to gain popularity last year alongside the bamboo bag trend. While bamboo bags are still hotter than hot for summer 2018, straw bags are tied for first place.

Straw bags for summer 2018 are so much fun! Instead of a bunch of different natural colored bags, designers are giving us colors, kitschy shapes, and circles! So. Many. Circles! If you haven’t picked up a circle bag yet, this is a great way to get one! A straw circle bag is the ultimate straw bag shape for the summer season, followed by a small tote or satchel.

In addition to shapes, straw bags for summer 2018 are featuring pom poms, tassels, and tied on scarves; which you can style yourself with a favorite scarf from your drawer. You will also find fruit, flowers, stripes, and suns on straw bags this summer 2018 season.

The fun thing about this summer 2018 handbag trend, is that it can be worn both on the street, and the beach; and of course, the pool! Sand particles move in and out of the woven straw, so you won’t come home from the beach with a bag full of sand. They will also survive light rain, and splashes from the pool. Straw bags are quite handy in warm weather!

You can wear a straw bag for summer 2018 with almost any style of warm weather attire. They look fabulous with shorts and flip flops as well as brunch dresses, skirts, and the like. I love a bag that dresses up and down! Plus, they tend to be a lot less expensive then leather bags. Love that!

How to shop your closet for spring 2018

Spring 2018 is almost here! In the fashion world, it’s in full swing! This means we all need to get our closets in order before we head out to the malls and start shopping. The last thing we want to do is buy something we already own. Um, yes, I’ve done that before; so, I want to make sure you don’t make my mistake!

There are a few trends this spring 2018 season we can find inside our closets. This is good news because it means we can all save a little bit of money when shopping for the spring season. Yay! It’s almost like free clothing! Well. . .almost. . .

Many trends from last spring, and the spring before, are back in style. So, let’s dive into our closets and shop until we drop!

Pointy Toe Pumps

You know you have at least one pair stuffed in the back of your closet! Pointy toe pumps are hotter then hot this spring 2018 season, so dust off those pointed toes and bring them front and center. They are your IT shoe of the season. Love that!

Cult Gaia Ark Bag

Did you buy a Cult Gaia Ark bag last year? If so, fabulous! It’s still a hot bag to wear this year. Also, since circles, bamboo, and straw, are all hotter then hot in the handbag world for the spring 2018 season, the Cult Gaia Ark bag fits in perfectly. It’s a half circle, and it’s bamboo; perfection!

Florals

OMG! So groundbreaking, right?! You know you have something with a floral print somewhere in your closet, or stuffed in the back of that drawer you never open. Pull it out, iron it, and hang it front and center in your closet. Florals are hotter then hot for spring. Who knew?! Haha 😉

Yellow

OK, you might not have yellow in your closet, but then again, maybe you do? Yellow has always been around, and it started to become popular last year. So, perhaps you have one yellow item floating around somewhere in your closet. Or, maybe a couple of years ago you jumped on the yellow handbag trend. Fabulous! Pull it out, and wear it often. Yellow is anything but mellow this season!

Purple

As you know, Ultra Violet is the color of 2018. It is extremely similar to 2014’s color of the year, Radiant Orchid. Chances are, you have something purple from 2014 hanging in the back of your closet; or perhaps a fabulous purple handbag sits in your archives. It’s time to bring it back to the front of your closet because purple is everything this year. Love!

White Handbags

White handbags are a huge trend this spring season. White handbags also happen to be a classic summer handbag color. There is a really good chance you own a white handbag. Dust it off, wear it often, and be fabulous.

Girlfriend Jeans

Not a new trend at all, but the denim outline of the season no less. Keep those girlfriend jeans in the front of your denim drawer, they are the ultimate denim style this season. Don’t have a pair? No worries, put your boyfriend jeans in the dryer and voila! Shrunken boyfriend jeans equal a new pair of girlfriend jeans! Haha, No really, I’ve done it and it works.

Stripes

Stripes were hot last year, and they continue to be hot this year. Wear all the stripes! Mix your stripes, or wear them stand-alone; either way, you will look fabulous.

Denim Jacket

You know you own one! It’s the ultimate jacket of the season. If you feel like it is too plain, add some sequins or bedazzle it with pearls; instant update! Love it!

Colored Denim

You know those purple skinnies are still in the back of that drawer you never open. Bring them out, because colored skinnies are baaaaa-aaaaaack! Any color of jean is fabulous this season, so wear whatever you have, and you’re set!

Of course, there are many more trends this spring 2018 then what I have mentioned, but these are the easiest trends from past seasons to shop from your closet. Now that you have found what’s hot for spring in your closet, you can buy that circle bag you have been eyeing with all the money you saved! Love!

Just in case your closet is missing something:

What will you buy for spring now that you saved a ton of money and found most of your spring 2018 wardrobe in your closet?

Thanks for stopping by!
