Emma Roberts, your summer reading list guru, is one of the trifecta of Hollywood鈥檚 Emmas 鈥 Roberts, Stone and Watson 鈥 who we love just as much for their smarts as we do for their style. The former unretouched face of Aerie kicked off her summer with a really great, stylish start.

Let me be upfront with you 馃憖#ScreamQueens

The actress carried an interestingly shaped bag to a recent event in New York: round. In fact, the bag somewhat resembles a sofa cushion. The shape has gone in and out of style in recent years, but it鈥檚 poised to make a comeback with Scream Queen Emma on the cusp of the resurgence of the trend.

It鈥檚 really clever the way she鈥檚 gone monochromatic with her look too 鈥 she鈥檚 letting the overall ensemble speak for itself, rather than a single element of it like the bag or the shoe. If you鈥檙e really feeling round bags for a switch-up this summer, here are a few to try.


1. Julie Winn Designs Round Handmade Bag ($65): If you鈥檙e looking for something that鈥檚 not only one of a kind but super functional (hello, cross body strap!), this one from Etsy dealer Julie Winn Designs might be right for you. The colors are reminiscent of a sunset, which juxtaposes nicely against the black.


2. Mangoshee Wooden Circle Bag ($145): This round bag looks like a giant spool or button, so it鈥檚 perfect for all you makers out there as a wink to your passion! It鈥檚 a great conversation starter for the next wedding you鈥檙e invited to, if you鈥檙e willing to divulge your secret source, of course.


3. Lucky Brand Jordan Round Crossbody ($128): For an everyday bag, it鈥檚 hard to beat this one from Lucky Brand; the color pops against your summer whites, but still looks sleek with an LBD. The fringe tassel is a nice touch, but is removable if you鈥檙e going for a look that鈥檚 a little less bohemian.


4. Beth Friedman Petit Round Crossbody ($59): Talk about a retro throwback that looks just as good now as it does on Betty Draper circa the Mad Men era. The top handle is adorable, and the pretty gray color is just screaming to become a canvas for some bag charms that will personalize the piece.


5. AIOU Macaron Bag in Camel ($268): If you鈥檙e ready to commit to the bag shape, this gorgeous camel color might be the way to go. It鈥檚 neutral and works with all your workday staples, but would also look good with jeans and a tee on the weekend. The color makes it totally useable year-round, driving that cost-per-wear price way down.
