While the coronavirus pandemic has put a pause on so many of our traditional summer activities, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy our favorite warm weather fashions. 

There’s no easier way to embrace the season’s wild and free vibe than with a relaxed, new handbag.  

FEMAIL rounds up bohemian style carryalls that will have you looking (and feeling!) like a jetsetter – even if you’re only making a grocery run.

A handbag shaped like a seashell or embellished with nautical accents can instantly (and effortlessly!) add a touch of beach chic to any ensemble.

This season’s offerings expertly crafted with natural textures like raffia or straw from Into The Woods, Loewe, Simone Rocha and Carolina Santo Domingo are inspired by the sand but suitable for the streets.

A beach bag is not just for the Riviera or island hopping in Greece. Just slip into a light-weight cotton dress by Diego Binetti, reach for a sizable carryall by Mar Y Sol and make waves anywhere you go. 

So what if Coachella and other live music events have been cancelled?! Petit Kouraj has officially taken fringe out of festival territory. 

Fusing the relaxed vibe of a cotton mesh bag with dramatic long flowing fringe that’s designed to move with you, Nasrin Jean-Baptiste’s creations will make you want to get up and dance.

From clothing to accessories, crochet, and its innate boho vibe, is always a huge summer trend.

A slouchy crossbody option, like the one by Palma Canaria, you can take to the outdoor cafe or office alike.

Wanna go clear? The PVC bag trend is back this summer, but labels like Lovers + Friends and Emma Kuo are offering refined and elegant beaded alternatives.

See-through bags are delightfully kitschy and they go with everything.

Want to raise the style stakes? Make a sartorial statement and brighten your mood with a happiness-inducing rainbow bag by Susanna Chow.   

You don’t need to carry a lot in the summer, and for that reason, a clutch is “clutch” this season. 

Handmade woven clutches by Kaiwara or Diego Binetti will sit perfectly in the crook of your arm and add just the right amount of “OOO” energy to your look.

When temperatures start to soar, the last thing you want is a big, oversized bag weighing you down.

With options so beachy cool, you can almost smell the salt air!
