7 Essential Bag Styles You Should Own

Everyone has their favorite everyday bag, but sometimes you need a bag with a little more pop for a special occasion or a different style for a particular day. Having a range of bags to choose from that are both practical and fit your personal style is fashion-forward thinking, but you don’t have to fill your closet to get the right collection.

  • Backpack Purse: Backpack purses had a heyday in the 1990s and are now making a comeback in full swing. The trendiness of backpack purses paired with their ability to store many items neatly in a compact space makes them an ideal choice for any adventures or daily use. This stylish Italian leather backpack pairs practicality with sleek fashion.

Creating Trendy Vacation Looks with Summer Totes, Handbags, and More

Summer is in full swing, and whether you’ve had a vacation planned for months or make a spontaneous decision to take a trip, now is the best time to create your summer vacation looks. Having the right wardrobe for any vacation is almost as important as where you stay, how you will get there, and what you’ll do when you’ve arrived. Without clothing suited to the destination’s climate, your activities, and your comfort, you can find your vacation as grueling as any workday. Packing apparel that meets your practical needs can also meet your unique style needs with additional flair. Before you head out the door to spend time relaxing and exploring on your summer trip, find the right handbags, travel bags, totes, and more that you need to complete your trendy vacation looks with POPPI Italian Leather’s selection of beautiful, handmade bags.


In many ways, bags are the most practical part of any vacation. Not only are they necessary for travel, but they also provide a comfortable way to carry what you need throughout your vacation day. Choosing the bags you need doesn’t have to just be about their practicality, especially not when you choose from our unique collection of summer styles.

Relaxed: Summertime is all about relaxing. Capture the vibes of summer on your vacation with a relaxed tote like this one made from veg tanned quality leather. The softness of our leather and the utility of a tote combined with its trendy look make our totes perfect for any vacation.


Structured: One of the most popular bag styles this summer are structured, stylized handbags like this faux croc patterned retro hand tote made from organic Italian leather. This style offers a simplistic look with clean lines and enough space to store everything you need for a day trip or a night on the town.

Colorful: Nothing radiates summer like bright colors. A splash of color against your summer apparel makes you stand out and gives your unique vacation look an even more vibrant flair. Our most popular options for a colorful bag include our embossed Simone crossbody and our Saffiano leather handbag.


Woven: Another classic summer vacation look is created with woven leather reminiscent of beachy grass weaves. This woven Italian leather shoulder bag is a great option for a useful midsize crossover bag that pairs with any summer outfit.

Summer Whites: Of course, we can’t forget the classics. Summer whites are always a popular, timeless option. The clean-cut, breathable look of an all-white outfit speaks to traditions of aristocratic, classy summer outings. The pure white and gold of our quilted shoulder bag or the creamy off-white of a pebbled crossbody adds effortless style to any summer whites.
