Arm Candy – Chic Summer Handbags

When the sun comes out it’s time to ditch those highly structured black bags you’ve carried your books in all year and opt for bright, fun stylish handbags that are roomy enough to take you from the beach to the party.

This year, designers focused on statement embellishments such as fringe, ruffles, zippered accents and studs. Oversized bags are still hot, but teeny clutches or chain strap purses and medium-sized hobos and satchels are in style as well. Popular colors include yellow, pink, green, white and nude, but anything bright and fun is always in!
