Summer has finally arrived and styling your outfit with a cute bag is one of the easiest ways to add some flair to your look. These chic purses can instantly elevate a simple white tee and cut off jeans and they can be the perfect final touch to your perfectly planned outfit.

Below I have rounded up the top 4 bag trends for this summer, with everything from brightly colored acrylic from Summer bag gurus Cult Gaia to a more classic woven bag a la Lowe. There are styles to shape all tastes and budgets. Happy shopping!
