It’s no secret that one of the quickest ways to update your wardrobe is via accessories. Would you agree? I think it’s important to mention that accessories are like the cherry on top for an outfit… the icing on the cake, if you will! They can truly take an outfit from good to great. You can also get your hands on amazing accessory options at a range of prices- from reasonable to ridiculous! I’m going to believe you agree with all the above.
If you ask me what accessory to consider for your next purchase, I would tell you that I am a huge admirer of the circle bag. Have you seen some of these? Or, maybe you’ve already got one!?
Short story, I used to have a beautiful leather cream circle handbag from Gucci with the old school logo embossed on the side…REALLY wish I didn’t give that away! *Le Sigh
My top pick for you fashionista’s is this amazing Mansur Gavriel hand bag. I am certain you have seen this brands handbags – they started off with a really clean and simple bucket bag. Discret and beautiful crafted. It became a favorite REAL quick!
Here is there circle bag – to be carried by the handle. Kind of retro!
From the beautiful leather and construction to the size – it’s perfect!
The zipper closure is beautiful and lets you style with mixed metals. Dig it! Love the name of the color also – Flamma! But there are other colors if you prefer ( you can take a look at Moda Operandi, too)
An alternative that is drastically different is this circle straw bag by Samuji. Loving this green color that it is shown in here ( you kind find the other color way option by checking out Moda Operandi).
It is definitely larger in size so it stands out a bit more and can have multiple uses: day bag to beach bag. Luckily, that shoulder strap can make it the perfect Spring/Summer cross body.
Can you see yourself incorporating a straw bag into your wardrobe?
Here are some options for you to consider at price point you feel the most comfortable with!
This Roksanda bag is more like a clutch and comes in three really great color options. This rust color being my favorite! There is also this Marfa option from Madewell. ( click on those links to check out the bags!)
On a strict budget? This silver patent leather cross body above really nails it , if you ask me. Yes. Silver patent leather. The black leather straps are a great contrast and help ground it. This DVF bag comes in black too – BUT – I think the patent speaks to a few more trends than the alternative. Price is pretty amazing, too.
Have you heard of Hillier Bartley? If not, look them up now. This duo has an amazing circle bag that can easily be worn cross body. The color way? Pink?! The tassel? Orange?!
Both are so very special and really add something bold and clean to any look. The bright pink and orange accents are so perfect for spring!
The link above takes you to Net-A-Porter – a great place to explore and learn about new designers.
Let me know what you think about these options? Do you think you will incorporate this trend into your wardrobe? Would love to see! Leave me a comment and let me know!
