Summertime and the living is easy… or would be under normal circumstances. As we reopen and reenter society, we are finding that our bag needs are slightly different this year. Yes, of course, beach totes and fanny packs transcend a pandemic. What we mean, however, is that the need for masks, sanitizer, gloves and the like, causes us to reconsider what we really need and want in a handbag. As a result, if hand-held bags and clutches dominate your existing handbag collection, it may be time to branch out. Consider picking up a few practical sling, cross-body or belt bags that are easy to wear, access and clean!
For our top picks for the summer of 2020, we rate each bag type for Comfort, Size, Material, Usability and Style. At various price points from least expensive to most, there is something in here for everyone.
