31 Cute Summer Bags That Feel Primed for a Vacation

That summer feeling is in the air, which means there's also the inescapable urge to start planning a relaxing getaway stat—that is, if you didn't already book your 2022 summer trip a year in advance. (I'm definitely in the procrastinator category, for what it's worth.) I would argue that the most fun part of planning a vacation is imagining all the cute outfits you could be wearing depending on the destination. And your outfit is never complete with a bag, of course. 

Whether you're going to a more central city like Paris or London or to a beachside location like Lisbon or Positano, I rounded up 31 cute summer bags that are longing to be packed in your suitcase and brought along for the ride. There's everything from straw top-handles to sleek crochet baguette bags and mini bags to woven leather crossbody styles. No matter what warm-weather outfits you're neatly packing—or more likely sloppily throwing—into your luggage, you'll definitely find a bag or two here that'll go with your vacation looks. Keep scrolling to see for yourself.
