    Trendy Bags from Summer 2018

    It seems like some of these bag trends have been all over my Instagram feed and friends arms for longer than this summer, so maybe that means they aren’t trends anymore and actually have a bit more staying power. Regardless, here’s a roundup of 4 of our favorite styles! Everything we’re loving right now gives wistful, vacation vibes so if you’re planning a trip or just need that energy in your life, then this post, and maybe one of these bags, is for you.

    Cult Gaia’s Ark

    This bag has been EVERYWHERE since it was first released a few years ago. In fact, we already put you on to it here. I own this bag. I love this bag. Your fave probably also has and loves this bag. Since it popped up on the scene, there have been many knockoffs of it so you can probably get the look for less somewhere else, but if you want the original in all the different sizes and colors, head to Cult Gaia to cop.

    Reformation’s Kayu Gianni Bag

    Artisan made bags are also everywhere. This one is made from woven abaca with a turnlock closure. We like that it closes/locks unlike other woven bags that we’ve come across. Take a trend, but do it with a twist you know? This bag is also being sold by Reformation, a brand dedicated to sustainability in fashion, which is something we at RXY can absolutely get behind.

    Foaki’s Net Bag

    At this point, we’ve probably all seen one or two pics on Instagram with the net bag and books or net bag and citrus fruit. It’s a vibe. Here’s your net bag for the low. When I was in Portugal in March, at lunch, the woman at the table across from me was using a net bag. She had flowers, books, and all kinds of other stuff in there. It perfectly accessorized her Vans, jeans and white tee. It was then I knew I needed one. I’m just saying, I warned you about the Instagram post to come.

    Pinkness Co’s Transparent Bag

    Transparent bags are having a moment. I used to be creeped out by the idea of folks being able to see into my purse, but people have found ways around that by including small shopping bags or other mini-bags inside their transparent bag. There’s a workaround for anything apparently. While I haven’t bite the bullet on this trend yet, I might.
