Although many people keep the rumor alive that white after labor day is a no-no, white purses are making a style statement throughout the year. Wearing a white handbag gives any outfit a bright, clean look and an polished touch. This perfect Rebecca Minkoff structured Hobo handbag is simple, yet the gold harware and eyelet finishes give this bag an extra touch of sass.

Alright bagistas, we all know that the tribal trend is nothing new on the summer handbag scene, and here's why: it's brilliant. It takes that natural outdoors summer feeling, and imbibes it with that which is both pretty and primitive. Be it wools, woods, leathers, or a combination thereof, this trend aims its focus on a breezy bohemian lifestyle. One of the many things I love about this trend is the fact that it lends itself to a plethora of styling options; call it the trend that plays well with others.

Although all of this fashion-oriented information just comes as second nature to me, maybe we need to have a fashion intervention and information convention for all of our bagistas.
