Summer is almost here and we are all excited to travel, so now is the time to pull all your travel-ready items together so you are ready to go whenever possible! There are specific handbags that are perfect for summer travels and whether you have them all or a combination of some, it can make all the difference in how well you can pack and get ready to go!

Here are 3 chic handbags that are not only very trendy this season, but they are also perfect for travelling:

1. Crossbody bag

The crossbody bag is easily one of the most beloved handbag styles out there. It looks chic and stylish but it is also incredibly practical. It comes in a number of different sizes, from micro to XXL, and with different shapes and materials you can really find the right one for your needs. If it is your first crossbody purchase, a popular option to consider is the medium size (that hits you at the right point of your hip so it’s comfortable) in leather. There is a lot of options to choose from, for example you can shop beautiful artisanal Italian crossbody bags online at websites like Mirta.

2. Tote bag + water bottle bag 

Ok, so technically this is 2 different bags but it’s paired together as 1! The tote bag and water bottle bag combo is practical and elevated. The water bottle bag helps to keep you hydrated throughout the summer days and doesn’t weigh down your main bag, and the tote bag can be a material and color of your choosing that carries your daily essentials. The classic stylish tote bag in leather, for example, is a great option for an elevated look and will easily be one of your most worn summer (and year round) handbags.

3. Canvas totes

The canvas tote is one of the most loved summer handbags, particularly if you enjoy going to a beachy destination or getting outside for adventures. It is less easily scratched than leather so you don’t have to worry about scratching your favorite leather handbags and you can pack drinks and food in your canvas tote and not worry as much if any spills happen! Bonus: Find a canvas tote that you can spot clean well, just in case! 

Another major benefit of having a canvas tote is it doesn’t get as hot, as the bag itself is often lighter than a leather bag! It can stay as light as you want it to and it is easier to carry around. You can also pack it easier in your main suitcase for travels if needed.
