At the start of every summer, we like to buy ourselves a whole new wardrobe — in our dreams (cronuts and Ryan Gosling are there, too). In the real world, our budgets don't exactly allow for seasonal closet makeovers. So, we go with our favorite shortcut — treating ourselves to a brand-new bag.
A cute, colorful bag is the best way to breathe new life into your old-season staples — and, the fact that you'll have it for years means the dough you drop here is completely justified.
Check out the 11 Rebecca Minkoff purses currently topping our lusts lists. Treat yourself to a sturdy, neon satchel or ladylike wristlet, plus one of our favorite, under-$50 summer finds, and trust us — it's almost like having the new wardrobe of your dreams. The RyGos part, we can't help you with (sorry).
