The 17 Kitschiest Summer Bags You Need This Season

This shit is bananas… literally

Summer is officially here, and that’s something worth celebrating. But when it comes to all of the beachside festivities, backyard barbecues, and rooftop cocktail hours we’ll be attending, we find that the most pressing question we’re asking ourselves is: What in the world are we supposed to wear? The answer: A bag shaped like a pineapple, of course.

Let’s face it, when it’s unbearably hot outside we’re most likely wearing as little clothes as possible, and the less fabric we have to work with, the less space there is to be creative. It’s really time to embrace the power of a good accessory.

With that in mind, we went on a hunt for the kitschiest, most adorable bags to rock all summer long, and boy, were we pleased with the results. From tropical birds to bananas, it all exists in the form of a handbag somewhere. And, to be completely honest, we want it all (if not only for the fact that it's a great conversation piece).

Click through the gallery below to check out our picks of the season, and get ready to be the most festive one at the party.
