The heat is in full swing this summer, so it’s time to upgrade your summer wardrobe! Although there are still limitations on where we can go, there’s no limit to dressing up and looking your best, whether you’re working remotely at home, taking a walk through the park, or even shopping for groceries. We’ve paired four basic summer looks with the perfect handcrafted, one-of-a-kind, Holy Cow Couture leather handbag to elevate your style.
For a By-the-Water Look:
If you live near the coast, or you want to take a day to picnic by the lake, consider going around with our Get Outta Dodge Tote Bag (18” x 12” x 6”) or our slightly smaller Get Outta Town Tote Bag (16” x 12” x 5”)!
If you’re going for a full beach-vibes aesthetic, a light brown leather tote bag would pair effortlessly with a sleeveless tank, high-rise denim shorts, and a pair of thong sandals. Layer on some simple metal necklaces and a couple bead bracelets for a more put-together look. For a more coastal-chic aesthetic, pair a white or beige colored cowhide bag with a striped, off-the-shoulder romper. Finish off the look with a sunhat and wavy hair!
These tote bags are stiff-sided to keep them sturdy and upright, so they’ll always keep their shape. They’re large enough to fit your beachside or lakeside essentials: your favorite reusable water bottle, a beach blanket, a mini-Polaroid camera, a bullet journal, and some pens.
For a Dreamy Romance Look:
For the girls who love to take photoshoots in gardens and fields of tall grass, this section is for you! Your romantic, vintage aesthetic calls for an adorable Canteen Bag.
Your ideal summer look consists of a floral-print or pastel-colored sundress. Dangly earrings and long layered necklaces are a must for your accessories. You should also look for puffy-sleeves and off-the-shoulder crop tops to pair with flowy maxi-skirts. Opt for lighter colors, like white, off-white, and pastel hues. A light brown or classic cowhide-print canteen bag is the perfect crossbody bag for a dreamy date night outfit. For a more casual aesthetic, finish your outfit with some white or brown ballet flats.
Our canteen bags may be small, but they’re practical! Featuring two interior pockets and a faux leather interior, you get quick access to your items as well as easy clean-up and care.
For a Western Boho Look:
This aesthetic is for the modern day cowgirls and southern belles. Whether you’re grocery shopping or going on a daytrip with the girls, you need a Sling Shot Bag by your side.
Your western-boho closet isn’t complete without a few staple maxi-dresses. For ones with print, look for dresses in a sheer fabric. If you’d rather wear a solid color maxi-dress, look for ones with tiers in the skirt for some dimension. Wear a pair of ankle booties or cowboy boots in the same color as your crossbody Sling Shot bag to complete the look.
The Sling Shot bag (9.5” x 8”) comes with a 46” crossbody strap and is perfect for when you want to travel light. The fringe on the bag adds to the western boho aesthetic, making this bag a staple item for your summer wardrobe.
For a Night On The Town Look:
When you want to go out with the girls on the weekend, you need to stand out from the crowd. Rock your evening ensemble with an Itty Bitty Tote (9" x 6" x 3")!
Cow print is the new black — pair a leather cow print skirt with a halter top for a chic look. With a sleek pair of your favorite high-heeled booties and a mini cow-hide tote bag, you’ll be turning heads all night. If that’s too much cow-print for one look, go for an off-the-shoulder button down blouse with a brown leather skirt. You also can’t go wrong with high-rise jeans and a lace bralette.
Until women’s clothes actually have usable pockets, our Itty Bitty Tote is a cute substitute, fitting all of your nightlife essentials, such as your phone, wallet, lip gloss, and powder.
Don’t forget to pair each summer look with a matching facial mask to complete your outfit! Watch a few DIY videos on how to glam up your facial mask to match your ensemble! Practicing safe social distancing measures is the haute-est way to spend your summer. Stay safe!
