Spring has sprung! But according to the fashion world– a community of high-end designers, buyers, advertisers, critics, and consumers that always seems to remain several steps ahead of the game– it’s summa, summa, summatime. That means that over the next few weeks, mailboxes and inboxes across the country will be clogged up with summer-savvy styles and steals.
Just last week, I received my copy of the Michael Kors Summer 2014 catalog. Here’s a quick peak at some of my favorite MK goodies for the upcoming season, available for pre-order now!
Large Channing Shoulder Tote // bottom right
MK’s summer tote bag is perfect for running from the office to lunch to the outlet mall. The removable, adjustable chain strap and double shoulder straps make for a variety of carrying options, and four small pockets inside make for easy organizing on the go. The navy hue is guaranteed to go with just about every ensemble in your closet.
Jet Set Coin Travel Purse // bottom left
This mini travel purse may not seem like much at first glance, but in colors like raspberry and bright blue, it packs a serious punch. (Opt for a neutral like black for a more classic, everyday vibe.) It’s ideal for the days when you don’t feel like lugging everything around with you. The front flap has a snap button closure that keeps contents tucked neatly inside, and it has a small zipper pocket for coins, as well. Just pack your cash, coins, cards, and go!
Mini Selma Messenger // top right
The Selma has been one of MK’s most popular new styles, but I think my favorite version comes in this mini messenger bag. The size is perfect; it’s not so big that the long strap doesn’t work but not so small that it rivals the Jet Set Coin Travel Purse (mentioned above.) The color-blocked design is genius and the messenger is perfectly structured, ensuring that you’ll looked well put together wherever your travels may take you.
Medium Sutton Satchel // center
A simple satchel can never be wrong. MK struck gold with this polished design, complete with tote handles, perfect for effortlessly carrying your purse in the crook of your arm the way the celebs do. This bag can hold it all! It has an open center pocket, two outside zip compartments, and three smaller inner pockets. The Sutton looks so chic in white, but I’d also recommend trying it in vintage yellow for a sunny pop of color.
