6 Handbags For Women That'll Serve Through Summer

By Somdutta Mazumder

Updated - April 9, 2021 5 min read

Through the years, there has been considerable commentary over our tendency to lug around an assortment of stuff everywhere we go. But ladies, won't you agree that the same folks who poke fun at us and our packed bags, are the first ones to turn to us for the essentials we carry. Perhaps that bears testimony to just how underplayed handbags are as closet essentials. Between glittery 6-inch heels and broad cinching belts with gold emblems, handbags fall at the midpoint of trend and practicality in the world of fashion accessories. 

 

On top of their undeniable utility, handbags also bring a lot of versatility to your styling options. The same bag when paired with a neutral work outfit will yield very different results than when it is thrown together with an evening dress. But there's another undeniable factor at play here, handbags can also be through the roof expensive. So it goes without saying that the handbags you choose to include in your wardrobe, should meet your fashion needs perfectly and in multiple ways. And now that the season of summer is upon us, we thought it's time for a lookbook of the most good-looking and useful, yet affordable handbags one should stock up on for the months ahead!
