As we get ready to say farewell to March and hello to April, it’s time for a round up on fashion’s largest window, instagram. It feels like we’re moving closer to getting out and about so inspiration for the spring and summer wardrobes is needed. For the regulars who pop into Bagwhispers.com know that they can spare the internet scrolling and enjoy a short, sharp edit of bag fashion each month. And this month, I’ve got some treats for you!
These five bags are all designer brands, and as such, some of them come with sizeable price tags, however, don’t be put off, they have been shortlisted as they deliver you two things:
- a visual of one of the key SS’21 fashion trends
- and a whole lot of style and inspiration
So by stepping away from the runway fashion show reels, see this edit as inspiration to some of the key bag trends, being brought to life, that you don’t want to miss; perhaps as a guide you for when shopping for more affordable options (see some useful links at the end).
This is the spring/summer where the bag blends or matches your outfit. If your outfit is one colour vibe, adopt a tone of the same hue for the bag. Check out these examples:
Starting with the Boheme bag from Coccinelle. This is a great alternative to a traditional bucket bag (I’m a hater of the bucket bag because I can’t bear to chase my keys or lipstick around the bottom of the bag). However, this minimalist slim bag is a great replacement and has just enough detailing to be noticed for the right reasons. Pair with a spring trench coat or summer nude colour tunic and flowing trousers. I can feel the wind in my hair already!
Taking a toned approach to the wardrobe doesn’t mean your bag has to blend into obscurity. Take inspiration from Simone Rocha who shows the skill in adopting different shapes, textures and embellishment, to ensure the bag catches the eye too. Bring on those special summer occasions.
And don’t let those trips to the beach (we live in hope) go without a sprinkle of fashion consideration. Cult Gaia has been giving us interesting bag shapes for the last 3 summer seasons and they haven’t disappointed us for SS’21; check out the accordion inspired Yasmina rattan bag.
This spring and summer has lots of colours; from pastels to bright bolds. If your spring and summer outfits are striped or a vibrant print, pick out one or more of the colours and duplicate on your bag.
And hot off the press, from By Far is the Rachel bag, an ivory spray paint leather shoulder bag. This striped design can be seen on many different bag shapes and styles in the By Far SS’21 collection and prices are yet to be added to the website, with a holding notice saying ‘coming soon’. We can’t wait!
And all hail the iconic print from Versace, the brand that shows us how a bold print can be complimented effortlessly by a bag from the same colour palette. The La Medusa bag comes in lots of colour hues that will keep you on trend this season.
There you have it, 5 designers that are inspiring us this month on instagram with bags to rock the SS21 fashion trends. But before I sign off, I couldn’t resist one more bag from insta this month and thanks to Kate Spade of NY.
Just for fun
