Fashion girls seem to automatically know what the It-bags are every season. It鈥檚 almost like there鈥檚 a 鈥渕ust-haves鈥 memo that goes around to the street-style stars. Or maybe it鈥檚 just a sixth (style) sense. Either way, there鈥檚 always a selection of MVP聽bags that they have on rotation, and this summer is no different. Rather than just pine after their perfectly Insta-worthy style, why not invest in a little bit of the magic for yourself? Ahead, we鈥檝e put together the definitive list of need-to-know-about bags and where to scoop them up ASAP.

Maybe it鈥檚 the barbell ring closure or the ladylike shape, or the combination of the two. Either way, style stars everywhere are clamoring for this piece.

In bright red, the JW Anderson Medium Pierce Shoulder Bag ($1690) makes for a can鈥檛-miss accessory. Carry it under your arm or go practical with the shoulder strap.

2. Cult gaia鈥檚 ark bag
