A Handbag for Every Summer Adventure

With summer right around the corner (finally!), we at Lux Second Chance have compiled a list of our top must-haves for the summer months! We’ve hunted the Spring/Summer runway looks for the best in summer accessories and have included looks that you can purchase today online at Lux Second Chance! Here are the staple bags you need in your wardrobe for every adventure in this summer!

 

The Beach Bag

Whether you’re vacationing in the Hamptons or have found an undiscovered, secluded beach somewhere, these chic bags will serve you well for everything you need for a day of sun, while looking trendy and fabulous at the same time! With durable leathers, sizable totes, and woven textiles making a huge splash this year, here is some inspiration for your next trip to the sea from Givenchy, Goyard, and, of course, Bottega Veneta!

 

 

The Wedding Clutch

Honestly, who wasn’t inspired by the recent royal wedding to step up their wedding looks this summer? A sassy clutch can be the perfect way to add a pop of glamour or excitement to any wedding attire. Whether you choose something glitzy or a bold floral, it seems like you can find whatever your style is in this year’s top trends. With inspiration all around us at this time of year, here are some clutches that will make you feel like royalty (or at least friends of royalty) this summer including finds from Saint Laurent, Valentino, and Charlotte Olympia.

 

 The Shopping Bag

 When we think of a long day of shopping, we often think of a perfect shopping tote. While totes are one of the most easy and efficient ways to carry all we need for a long day of shopping, there are other handbags that come in handy (no pun intended) as well, such as a cross-body or small backpack. Here are the trends we’ve spotted that will serve well as a summer go-to shopping bag from Prada, to Balenciaga, to Michael Kors.

  

The Festival Bag

It’s that time of the year; music and art festivals are in full swing! These places are not only where you go to see new music and art, but they’re also the place to be seen. “Festival style” seems to grow and grow every year and with that ever evolving trend comes further inspiration for cool, hip summer looks. Our best suggestions would be a mini backpack or a petite cross-body bag just small enough to keep the essentials, but not big enough to weigh you down while dancing the day away. To showcase your own personal style, but keep things practical given the long days, hot temperatures, and outdoor environment, here are our top picks for your festival circuit from Stella McCartney, Chloe, and MCM.

 

The Weekender Bag

Summer is the time for cottage retreats, girl’s weekends in the city, wine tours of Niagara, and literally anything else that gives us an excuse to escape for the weekend! In order to make room for all the travel essentials, everyone needs that perfect weekender bag that they can just grab and go! Honestly, just purchasing a trusty weekender bag can add to the giddy anticipation of upcoming getaways! Here are our top picks of fabulous and chic finds including 3.1 Phillip Lim, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci.

 Happy summer shopping!

What Does Black Friday and Cyber Monday Mean for Luxury Brands?

by Tessa Hall November 19, 2019

For most people, when you hear “Black Friday” you think of mobs of people almost breaking down the doors of a Walmart or Best Buy to get an insane deal on flat screen TVs or laptops. Similarly, when many people hear “Cyber Monday” they think of sites like Amazon crashing due to the high volume of traffic and users trying to get in on the hot, online discounts. Which leaves us wondering, “how do luxury brands do Black Friday and Cyber Monday?”

THIS OR THAT: BATTLE OF THE ULTIMATE CROSSBODY BAGS
THIS OR THAT: BATTLE OF THE ULTIMATE CROSSBODY BAGS

by Diana Nguyen November 05, 2019

This month on the blog we tackle a “this or that” debate that I’m sure everyone has an opinion on! What is the ultimate crossbody bag? How do you define it? What makes it unique, but practical? We dive into the specifics of our top four based on reviews and research of these luxury finds.

More common than ever, designers are including a longer crossbody strap to many handbags in order to add more versatility and ways to wear (which we love, of course!). As a result, the distinct criterion for this list is that these bags can only be worn crossbody; otherwise the options on what to include would be limitless! Let’s get started!
