My new fave designer bag 😍 love the linen, gold chain, pretty tan leather on this YSL – every detail is amaaazing!
Nothing like pretty whites, linens, and sheer details for summer – great designer bag options if you’re on the hunt!
You guys know how much I love handbags. I feel like bags and shoes get the most wear and make the biggest statement. There was a time when I was investing in and building up my designer bag collection, getting a few new designer bags a year. But then I went through a phase I wasn’t really inspired or in love with a lot of the new bags until this year! There have been so many cute bags out this year. The second I saw this one I fell in love, the linen 🤩 it’s even more beautiful in person. Saks has had the best selections this year. I also grabbed this cute denim shoulder bag – definitely a more budget-friendly price point and I love the 90s shoulder bag silhouette!
I’ve been so drawn to color this year, I wanted to share some brands I’m loving right now. These are all major statement-making brands, especially their summer collection, that would be a worthy focal point in any closet. Here are some of my favorites!
FARM RIO – These tropical and floral prints are the things dreams are made of – you can help but smile in their pieces. Love all the silhouettes too – some full sleeve, long sleeve, short sleeve, one shoulder, off the shoulder, cross back – a little bit of everything! These dresses are a must for any beach getaways you have planned.
SIGNIFICANT OTHER – Think feminine, flattering dresses and matching sets in the best prints and colors! I first tried this brand a few months ago when I ordered this top and loved it even more in person.
PATBO – This collection speaks for itself. Every single piece feels like it belongs on the Italian Coast or on a yacht on Lake Como. Honestly, I can’t even put it into words. Stunning, thoughtful cut-outs, statement cropped tops and swimwear, gorgeous prints and colors – truly one of the most amazing designers for summer!
STAUD – This brand feels a little more youthful and fun – from 90s shoulders bags to these pretty sandals to fresh color blocking. Also, most of their pieces are a pretty good price point for such high quality. Also ordered this cute matching track set – love the texture variation for each leg!
ACLER – These dresses will make anyone feel like $1m and every detail is perfection. Each silhouette feels so fresh and current – great options for wedding guest dresses too!
AGUA BY AGUA BENDITA: Another brand with gorgeous, art-like prints but their color palettes feel a little simpler (at least in comparison to Farm Rio). Also love their swimwear!
CULT GAIA: This has been one of my go-tos for summer style – from their gorgeous swimsuits to statement shoes to bags that you’ll want to wear all summer. It definitely leans more towards neutrals, but this summer has some new colorful finds. (Also obsessed with their dresses this season!)
ALICE & OLIVIA: I’ve been wearing this brand for years, but their summer collection is better than ever so I had to share. Their neons are breathtaking and dresses are stunning (also love this one). Great designer for everything from dresses to workwear to activewear (their biker shorts are 😍😍).
ZIMMERMANN: Another tried and true designer but no list of statement-making brands would be complete without Zimmermann. It’s always the first designer I search when I’m looking for a statement dress for easter or a new show-stopping swimsuit. Each piece is designed with the most intricate details, beautiful patterns and prints, and always such feminine silhouettes. Also, always an investment but one that will pay off.
