Be Warned: This Handbag Trend Might Make You Extra Hungry

If you are a fan of minimal, sleek accessories, we suggest you look away now, because the latest handbag trend to invade Zara is about as novelty as it gets. If you browse the store's handbag department, you'll notice most of the crossbody and clutch styles this summer are food-related, from pepperoni pizza raffia clutches to watermelon buckets (not literally) and long-strap banana bags. We can thank Dolce & Gabbana for our latest fashion craving, as the brand's S/S 17 collection was an Italian feast of pasta- and gelato-themed clothes and accessories. A fashion of a fruit basket is silly, yes, but is the perfect way to inject a little fun into your wardrobe.
