Of all the seasons, summer is undoubtedly the one with the best It bags, in my humble opinion. It’s the season when people tend to have more fun with their wardrobes, without having to worry about chilly weather forecasts. That applies to accessories too. Sure, there’s a need for neutral bags year-round, but this is also the perfect time to work some bags with color and/or special materials and embellishments into the rotation.
I’m admittedly drawn to an Instagram post containing an It bag like a moth to a flame, so I have been keeping tracks of the ones I’ve been seeing on repeat, on stylish women around the world. Below, you’ll find eight bags that have reached It-bag status this summer. Scroll on to see some of the It girls that are carrying them and, of course, shop them for yourself. There are options for work and play at a variety of price points with both recognizable designer brands and more under-the-radar brands in the mix.
