Beads and beads
Miniature beaded bags with a hint of vintage are one of the most interesting fashion trends in recent years. They are unlikely to bypass a straw basket - they are painfully impractical, but they will definitely be able to act as a boring substitute for clutches at parties. The most popular brand this summer is Susan Alexandra. The brand is not well known in Russia, so we advise you not to miss the moment and buy one of the cheerful beaded bags right now, before they have time to become familiar.

This spring, despite claims that fashion has taken a course towards sustainability, plastic has overthrown the trendy vinyl of past seasons. A little bit of futurism in everyday life certainly won't hurt anyone, and various clear plastic bags are the easiest way to incorporate 1960s space trends into your everyday look. These accessories are made for those who have nothing to hide. In any case, in a separate bag.

Perhaps you paid attention to the "bucket bag" in the accessories section of foreign online stores. Translated into Russian "bucket" is a bucket. And it was this model that finally took the lead. "Buckets" of all the colors that exist in the world, of various sizes, are a useful investment that will pay off in autumn and winter. We advise you to pay attention not only to the serious heavyweights of the fashion world like Alaia or Valentino, but also to lesser-known designers. Decent options are presented by the London brand Danse Lente, which draws inspiration from the works of Pablo Picasso, democratic Italians Camelia Roma and the most popular Instagram brand of this summer - Staud. Bucket bags, entangled in a net, managed to light up in the accounts of the founder of the Man Repeller website Leandra Medin, Alexa Chang, journalist Sabina Sokol and other recognized fashionistas.

The times when a bag must certainly be a serious and status thing are in the past. Designers experiment with shapes, colors and materials, offering creative textile accessories. Theatrical velvet, printed silk, catchy jacquard, roomy silk tots reminiscent of Japanese furoshiki (bags rolled out of scarves in a special way) - it's not easy to choose from such a variety.

With an emphasis on the handle
If earlier the handle of the bag performed an exclusively utilitarian function, then this season this detail comes to the fore. The pioneer of the trend can be considered Chloé, whose bags with metal handles-bracelets have been firmly holding their positions for many years, appearing in street style chronicles more often than other brands.
This summer we also advise you to pay attention to bags with handles intertwined with colorful silk scarves: the time-tested classics look especially good in a duet with dresses in prints or suits in pastel shades. Carved wood handles of intricate shape are another interesting technique that draws attention to the accessory.

Straw and bamboo
Baskets, string bags, knitted bags and even bags this year should be taken not only during a grocery trip, but also to work or a party. For the second summer in a row, the most fashionable girls on the planet have been walking around with string bags, and the basket bag turned into a fashion statement back in the 1970s with the light hand of Jane Birkin, who did not part with her even during the opening ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival.
