Summer Necessity: The White Handbag
White handbags are an absolute necessity for the summer. They go with so many summer outfitsYear after year I find myself in search of a white handbag for the summer. I often have a hard time finding a white handbag I like. There are many things to keep in mind and look for when shopping for white bags. A big problem with white bags is that they can easily look cheap. You really can’t go the cheap route when buying a white bag or else you’ll get what you paid for. You have to find something of top quality but also of a material that won’t pick up every grain of dust that falls on it. The extremely soft white leathers tend to pick up dirt very easily. You want a classic style that will last you beyond one season. After shopping around for a little, these are the top 2 white handbags that I found:
1. The Bottega Veneta White Woven Leather Large Tote: This is one of Bottega Veneta’s signature woven bags. It is truly a classic, and one that will remain in your closet for years of wear. The fine leather and construction makes this bag a quality, sturdy handbag with luxury and style to boot. The minor touches of gold hardware give this bag an added touch of individuality. This bag is the perfect white handbag because it can be worn with anything, for any occasion and will never go out of style. This is my favorite white handbag. And at 20% off you can now get this bag for $1,904.00.
2. Prade White Nylon Bow Pleated Tote Bag: This bag’s simplicity gives it a timeless look. It’s basic structure and nylon exterior give create a look that you can’t really go wrong with. The bag is contrasted with a silver leather strap and handles that contrast this bag’s basic style. This bag is also 20% off and a steal at $476.00.
