When you imagine your go to bag for the summer, you’re probably not thinking of leather. Don’t store those bags away yet, though! Leather can absolutely be worn in the summer time, and will make your outfit look classy and chic. In the outfits below, I am styling some beautiful authentic leather bags by Last Brand. If you haven’t heard of them, make sure to visit their website HERE to shop high quality products at a RADICALLY lower price!

LEATHER TOTE BAG
The best part about a classic tote bag is that it can be styled up or down. Here, I chose to wear it casually with a baggy sweater and a black skirt. They’re so practical given the amount of room it has, so you can bring this bag shopping with you and throw some of your purchases right in. Other trips it works best with? Work, a day trip, traveling in the airport, or to a meeting.
Leather Tote Bag Don’t: Avoid this size bag for the bar or restaurant because it might be too much to carry around in a small space – I’ll show you the best one to use for your night out!

LEATHER CROSSBODY BAG
Crossbody bags are what I usually gravitate towards. They’re small, but not impractical, and go with almost any outfit! Plus, you can wear it across your body or on your shoulder to style it differently each time. With this Croc Leather Crossbody from Last Brand, I styled it for a day/night out with a cute, flowing top along with jeans and Chucks.
Crossbody Bag Don’t: I wouldn’t wear this style with a more formal outfit because it teeter’s on the casual/semi casual side. Keep reading to see which bag is best for formal wear!

Clutches are the best for going out, and this Italian Leather Clutch from Last Brand is the perfect size! I was able to fit my essentials to meet some friends out at a restaurant, and didn’t feel like my bag was taking up the whole table. I styled it with a romper, and heels, and was pleasantly surprised how well the leather material went with the look. This clutch comes in black or cream color, and it is only $60 which is so much less than other similar leather clutches out there!
Leather Clutch Don’t: Truthfully, you can’t really go wrong with adding this to almost any outfit! The only material I would avoid pairing it with is light jeans. Dark jeans or black jeans, though, are a definite OK!

MINI SHOULDER BAG
This style is in right now! These mini bags were huge in the 90’s, and since the 90’s have rolled back around, this is a must have! So far, I’ve worn it casually with a crop top and high rise jeans, and professionally as you can see in the outfit below! AND it’s only $55 which is a steal as similar bags usually sell for $100 or more!
