The 20 Summer Handbags Everyone Will Want to Own

You probably know this by now, but in case you don't, allow us to repeat: Accessories, such as sunglasses, jewelry, shoes, and bags, have the power to take an outfit from zero to 100 in mere seconds. That's right; you can swiftly and easily jazz up a look with a cool pair of thin-rimmed frames, add the perfect pop of color to an all-black look with a bright-hued purse, or transform a classic little black dress into an evening ensemble with dangling chandelier earrings. That being said, it's good to freshen up your stock of accouterments every so often (making sure to donate or find another use for those you no longer want).

As you tackle the seasonal accessory refresh, we thought we'd help out a bit by highlighting all the best summer shoes your footwear lineup is in need of; we've talked about the hottest jewelry trends; and today, we're calling major attention to the summer handbags you're going to see everywhere in the coming weeks.
