A round bag is without doubt the freshest shape for summer. With its un-boxy, un-boardroom shape, it suggests lazy days by the water, tropical holidays, laissez-faire evenings. We’ve got five picks that suit every occasion – and any budget.
1. Steve Madden
This black number is a simple classic, great for hitting brunch with friends or strolling around the mall. If you’re feeling bold, there’s a red option as well.
2. Studio 33
Channel the colour of the sun with this amber yellow cross body bag. Pair it with a bright dress and sneakers or jeans and a crisp white shirt – the tortoiseshell strap is all the accessorizing you need.
3. Sophie Anderson
Given the price of this fabulous Sophie Anderson bag, we’d be cautious about taking it to the pool. But it’s the perfect number for lunch at Kite Beach. Complete the look with Mochi sandals and a white dress.
This beige straw bag is a great basic for lazy pool days or sunset beach nights. Jazz it up with a simple scarf tied around the strap.
5. Poolside Bags
With a removable contrasting strap, this pretty straw item can go from being a handbag to a casual cross-body options. It’s also a convenient roomy size.
