The Summer It Bag You Didn’t See Coming


Baskets, unique straw shapes, stark white hues and novelty styles are leading trends in the handbag department for summer. But a certain low-key style is swooping in and having a moment among the style set: net bags. More commonly used to tote fresh food from the farmer’s market, these malleable, lightweight options are catching on as the next casual-cool carryall. The trick to making them stylish? Pairing with more polished pieces, like prim dresses, high-waisted jeans and sleek footwear. (In other words, no slob-kabob outfits, which read lazy daisy.) Here, shop a few of our favorite net bags for summer.
