Spring is doing its best to have its moment here in Florida which means I’m officially on the hunt for the best spring/summer handbags under $200. A girl needs to accessorize right? And because I’m a woman who likes options, we’re taking today’s post in 2 parts. For my luxury lovers or luxury-inspired, there’s a full breakdown on my youtube channel going live tomorrow. (ps. don’t forget to sign up for the newsletter so you never miss a thing). But today is all about my favorite designer-inspired handbags. Fashion is a lifestyle. Luxury is optional.
Best Spring/Summer Handbags Under $200
A Floral Moment
There are three things I think of when it comes to spring/summer styling – floral, bright colors, and all the woven styles. But first up today, we have to talk about the most GORGEOUS handbags courtesy of Aldo. If you often poke around the Nordstrom website, you’re sure to find a few treasures. And over the last 2 years, brands like Aldo and House of Want have been creating designer-inspired pieces that will have you beyond excited to plan your next outfit.
A Bright or Woven Moment
A pop of color is one of my favorite ways to really elevate a look that leans into simplicity (see my Versace styling video for more inspo). But it’s also great for making a look feel more seasonally appropriate or even just adding a bit of fun. There’s also the beach vibe that comes naturally with a woven bag. Something about it just reminds me of sunshine and summer adventures. And of course, pairing the two together is always a bonus.
A Neutral Moment
I’m not typically one to follow fashion rules. I.e. the white after labor situation. But I do often switch my color palette with the seasons simply because Florida doesn’t quite understand the difference between winter & summer. So we pretend where we must.
Neutrals are of course a great wardrobe investment that can help you style up looks from everyday coffee runs to the next wedding/baby shower on your calendar. However, it feels like a true white for handbags is making a comeback this year. Previously, it’s been a slightly cream or off-white version. And of course, all of my recommends handbags are under $200.
