Summertime Beach Bags for 2013

Updated on February 16, 2015

No seaside or resort ensemble can be complete this season without a stylish and functional beach bag! With all the things we have to carry, from the sunscreen to the towels, a beach bag that can hold all of this and still look fabulous is a must. They’re super convenient and come in a large array of shapes and sizes. Colorful bags can really liven up a simple bikini, and natural toned bags can balance out vivid and wild prints. I love using beach bags because they help me organize all my valuables and keep the clutter away. Now depending on where you’re going this summer, I’ve come up with some beautiful recommendations for you to consider on your next trip!

Cruising the Sea

Cruises the perfect chance for you to just relax in the ocean and eat all day. They’re all about having fun, and sporting the clothes you don’t get to wear very often. For this occasion, I think a colorful and vibrant bag will definitely brighten up your day and attire. One of my favorites is the Blue Peacock bag that’s wonderfully bold and printed. The blue and purple feather pattern really gives it an exotic and natural vibe. I love how it has a top zipper to keep your things safe, while gold straps give it that extra support. The duffle style of this bag is incredibly chic and modern, but if you’re into glamour and sparkle, I highly recommend the Studio 54 bag by Paradizia. This stunning beach accessory has exquisite fringe details on the front that gradually leads to darker shades. I really love how much effort was placed into the design, with the braided straps and the floral embroidery. Just picture yourself strutting along the deck and unleashing your inner diva! You’ll surely turn heads with these flashy and one of a kind beach bags!

Tropical Getaway

When you’re going on that long deserved vacation, there’s only so much you can take with you on the plane. That’s why you’ll need a large and functional carry on, like the Florabella Antilles Horn handbag. This beach bag is amazing because it’s really durable and has tons of space. The crocheted raffia gives it a natural feel that’ll compliment any outfit. The leather straps make it really easy on the shoulders, and its drawstring feature will keep your goods safe. What I love most about this bag is how it easily works with day and night outfits; you can style it with anything because it has a simpler look. Unless you’re willing to pay for an extra luggage, we all know how difficult it can be to bring all our favorite accessories. Now if you’re into more vibrant and eye-catching bags, I think the Disco Diva bag by Paradizia would be fantastic! This bag has it all; it’s wild, fun, and really colorful. It’s great for people who like to be organized, because it has numerous pockets and spaces to hold your phone, ids, passport, and swimsuit! It works with any ensemble because it’s multicolored, and this beach bag can really liven up a simple dress. No one around you will have a bag like this. The Disco Diva is incredibly sturdy, and it’ll totally handle all the crazy adventures you go on!

Your Local Beach

If you’re planning to stay local by going to your nearest beach, you want to keep things light so that nothing will be left behind. That’s why I recommend the Mar de Rosas Floral Gem bag. It features two straps so that you can wear it like a back pack, and it’ll help take the strain off just one of your shoulders. I absolutely love this beach bag because there’s so much attention to the design. It has floral printing, bright accents, and adorable beaded trim along the edges. This bag is super chic and durable; the material will really last against the elements… and the parties. I think a matching pink bikini and a white cover up would go great with this youthful bag! However, if a backpack style isn’t what you’re looking for, the Mar de Rosas Sunset Escape bag is a gorgeous alternative! It’s really soft to the touch and features a cross body strap. There’s a lot of attention to detail in this bag too, with its delicate beading along the edges, colorful straps, fringe details, and cute little tassels! It bag really gives off an exotic vibe that everyone will envy! At the beach, you can easily forget where you settled your things, but this bag will surely be your shining beacon!

The Cool Pool

Taking some time out to relax by the pool is always a great idea! Sometimes it’s nice not having to deal with all the sand and salt from the beach, and just lay by the water. If you’re planning on going to some pool parties this summer, sporting a Mar de Rosas Retro Rays bag would definitely make your friends jealous! This fabulous accessory is wonderfully bright and detail oriented, with the fine embroidery and adorable trims. It’s perfect for ladies who love pink and floral patterns because this bag brings it all together in a sophisticated and fun way. The bag has two straps for better support and has lots of room for all your poolside necessities. I love how vivid it is, but if you want something with a bit more pop, the Spanglish beach bag by Maui would be perfect for you! This bag is all about prints and lively colors. The patchwork style is incredibly creative and unique. It’s made to be carried on your forearm and really gives you an ethnic and exotic feel. This bag will help make all your outfits stand out as you enter the party and tan by the pool!
