Fashion & Accessories

By Alexandra Taylor

This summer’s must-have accessories are back in your arms. Bold statement handbags are this season’s essential pieces. These days with the accessories market booming, surpassing apparel design in sales, you are sure to find your perfect bag in every shape, color, and price range. No longer is carrying a miniature Chihuahua or a 5 month old the only way to get attention while walking down the street. From ethnic hobos to feminine clutches, the range of stylish handbags available in stores has multiplied in the last few years. Designers are tapping in to the latest accessories craze, building alternate accessories lines to boost the desirability of their brand. Some of the most popular bag trends for summer are the resort and ethnic look of fringe, patterned, and straw bags, great for the beach or a weekend holiday.

Accessories designers like Anya Hindmarch of London design colorful and standout pieces that are sure to catch the attention of onlookers or at least merit a compliment from friends. Her summer 2010 pieces are fun and eccentric for any occasion. Anya Hindmarch’s handbags have caught the attention of such celebrities as Sienna Miller and Reese Witherspoon.
