How is Labor Day less than two weeks away? Inquiring minds would love to know. Anyway, summer is almost over, which gives us little time until we have to pack away our warm-weather clothes for dark hues and cozy materials.
Though that’s exciting in some regards (who doesn’t love chunky sweaters and suede booties?), it also means many of the lighter and brighter bags we’ve sported for the last few months should go back into their respective dust bags until next spring.
Not so fast, though. There’s still time left to rock a white bag before Labor Day, which is considered by many as the unofficial last day of summer. Even though the “no white after Labor Day” rule is incredibly outdated, we’re always on a search for an excuse to snag a new handbag, so let’s go with it.
If you don’t have a white bag in your arsenal, here’s 12 to check out. The Fendi Karligraphy Shoulder Bag is giving me real vintage vibes, while the IMAGO-A Carre Leather Top Handle Bag is sleek and chic with potential to hold its own through fall and beyond. I’m also loving the Valentino Garavani Rockstud Hype Medium Shoulder Bag, even though it’s on the pricer side. I’d settle for the Row’s Ascot, though.
