A big trend for this summer is retro bathing suits. Sure, the smaller you get the more heads you’ll turn, a la Kate Upton, but if you want to be more than hot and super chic a la the pages of Vogue instead, check out the gorgeous one pieces designers have been turning out for this pool season. Even tank dresses aren’t basic anymore – you find those which look like works of intricately beaded art. And when your outfit is this stunning, a straw beach bag just won’t do. You’ll be needing a stylish leather bag to hold your sunscreen and summer reading. Check out the Goldie Medium Leather bag in black – it’s the kind of bag that will last through many seasons of wear and tear as well as outlast all kinds of trends.
If you were under the impression that gray or dark blue are somber, too dull as bag colors, here’s a palette to change all that. The brighter your clothes, the better you’ll look with a muted bag on your arm. The gray studded Rockstar bag may look muted on its own but beautifully complements the outfit above – a lively indigo pantsuit and a bold aqua colored coat. This bright look also dispels any notions that winter coats have to be black, brown or tartan. This color looks great anytime, not just during summer!
