New season, new bag. That鈥檚 the rule, right? Right up there with slay-worthy sunglasses聽and tassel-trimmed everything, a snazzy bag that can usher any old #OOTD straight into FROW territory is a non-negotiable summertime essential. And between trips to the beach, your bestie鈥檚 wedding, and plenty of rooftop parties,聽there are plenty of聽occasions that warrant a new clutch or embellished straw tote this season. But which style to choose? We tapped some of our favorite Instababes to find out what鈥檚 hot.

1. Pop Art Prints:聽Classics will always hold a place of prestige in your closet, but as editor聽Caroline Vazzana knows, sometimes you just need to go all out.聽With their bright color palette and bold graphics, pop art prints allow you to do just that.

2. Jane Birkin Baskets: French girl fever is spreading like wildfire thanks to this charming wicker basket that鈥檚 been spotted on the arms of It girls everywhere. Team it with ditsy floral mini dresses and lace-up espadrilles for a winning warm weather ensemble a la Parisian.

3. Half-Moon Bamboo Bag:聽Beachy keen with a sculptural twist, these bamboo聽beauties are聽everywhere right now. Whether you opt for a聽vintage option or an of-the-moment interpretation, take style cues from Rosie Clayton and team it with a shoulder-baring top and go-with-the-flow wide-leg trousers for a flawless low-key look.

4. Chlo茅 Nile Bracelet Bag:聽Introducing the mini bag of your dreams. Chlo茅鈥檚 Nile Bracelet Bag is the ideal accessory for after-work cocktails and brunch dates with your crew, adding the perfect finishing touch to an already Insta-worthy arm party.

5. Circular Straw Crossbody:聽If there鈥檚 one thing Julie Sari帽ana knows, it鈥檚 how to pull together a killer warm-weather ensemble, and this #OOTD is no exception. The star of the show? That circular wicker bag that would look just as ah-mazing styled alongside a slinky slip dress and tassel earrings as it would with cutoffs and a knotted cropped blouse.

6.聽Simon Miller Bonsai Bag:聽Don鈥檛 underestimate the power of a top-handle bucket bag that鈥檚 equal parts classic and cutting edge. We鈥檙e kinda sorta obsessed with how Lucy Williams styled hers alongside a snakeskin jacket, distressed white jeans, and suede Nike sneakers. Off-duty threads have never looked so chic.

9. Flower Power:聽Boring isn鈥檛 even in this Instababe鈥檚 vocabulary. Decked out in a floral (and zebra?!) print, this punchy crossbody proves that all you need is one simple accessory to make even the most basic of basics feel like a million bucks.

10.聽Souped-Up Straw Bags: For stints in the city or in the sand, next-level straw bags are a must for summer 2017 鈥 period. Do like Stella-Uzo and take a more-is-more approach to your trusty tote, opting for look-at-me embellishments such as bright pom-poms, bold embroidery, and unexpected silhouettes.
