During the colder seasons, your outfits become monotonous when the basic items become your down jacket, leggings and boots. Luckily, for those escaping for a quick tropical island vacation, not only do you get a change of scenery, but with it come endless styling opportunities. A trip to the beach isn’t complete without a roundup of easy-to-wear vacation items and an eye-catching handbag. Plus, since you’ll likely only be bringing a few basic accessories that you’ll be spinning around, it’s a good idea to choose vacation handbags inspired by beach resort trends. However, don’t worry, your favorite cross-body bags – from cylindrical baguette styles to sleek structured models – aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. (It wouldn’t be a surprise if you’ve already added one to your suitcase.)
On the Spring/Summer 2022 show, designer brands like Loewe and Dior brought back cheerful colors like yellows, pinks and greens. When packing your carry-on, be sure to opt for that bright bag hiding in the back of your closet – instead of your usual neutral-colored shoulder bag. It’s time to give it a whirl and let it see the light of day – imagine all the cute Instagram photos in the stunning setting.
Another handbag trend for 2022 is woven bags, as the desire to travel and explore the world is greater than before. The style is especially suitable for a day at the beach when all you need is a book, towel, sunglasses and sunscreen. Meanwhile, bucket bags have been making a strong comeback on the catwalks of giants like Chanel and Louis Vuitton. The structural and practical design is suitable when you’re jet-setting and need to carry a variety of lightweight items.
If you’re already addicted to the styles above and curious to learn more, you’re in luck. Scroll forward to browse TZR’s list of the hottest and most functional vacation handbags inspired by resort trends. Choose your favorite essentials to bring on your next trip and in the warmer months ahead.
