Nothing catches the shine of the summer sun quite like a modern and chic metallic bag.  Glittering studs and spikes, chain handles and a mirage of metallic fabrics all combine to make up this bold and fashion forward trend.  Metallic bags glimmer and gleam to create a brilliant accessory that can help take any look from ordinary to extraordinary, as seen at the 2013 runway shoes of Phillp Lim and Bottega Veneta. We highly suggest you get your shine on, with one of our favorite styles of metallic bags this season.

Metallic Accented Tote
A fully metallic tote may be a bit much, but a metallic accented tote is perfection. Whether the metallic embellishment is in the form of metallic handles or strategically placed studs, metallic accents are the perfect way to update the classic tote. Best of all this look can be  a fun DIY project, take an old handbag that’s a little past its prime and instantly bring it into the now with the addition of a few metallic studs and spikes from your local craft store.

Metallic Box Clutch
The metallic box clutch has been in the hands of many a celebrity this red carpet season and we just love how this little accessory can pack a huge fashion punch. The metallic box clutch is the easiest way to rock this trend and you can pair it will literally anything.  It’s perfect for both formal occasions as well as weekend outings.

Metallic Satchel
The metallic satchel bag is perfect for the everyday woman who’s on the go.  Satchel style bags are casual enough to wear with jeans and shorts during summer, while the metallic hue of the bag still gives off a chic and fashionable vibe.
