8 Mini Beach Capsules For Summer With That Naghedi Bag


This post was waaaay too fun to do. It all started with our team’s love of Naghedi bags. This slow fashion brand creates timeless bags out of strips of neoprene, making them a natural match for the beach. Each bag is woven entirely by hand, and the weavers who craft them create only 1-2 pieces per day. While there are a ton of really useful styles, the one I’ve been eyeing up is the largest size, since it would make an incredible beach bag.

While it’s really hard to tell in the photos, the strap of the large (and medium) size bags is long enough to carry this bag on your shoulder. Most of the photos make this strap look really short, but the brand assures it will stretch a bit with use.

Naturally, the question we’re all asking ourselves is which color?? We needed to see all of the colors (or — almost all of the colors) styled up different ways to really decide which one will be our personal beach bag.

This bag ignited some sort of colorful fire in me and got me very excited for the warm weather. My consensus: I need a pretty coverup and cool towel to go with my beach bag this summer. Nothing like feeling a little pretty at the beach!

Except I still have to decide which color Naghedi bag is my fave. Please let me know your fave so I can narrow it down. (Indecisive queen over here). 

Capsule 1: Fresh + Minty

I was surprised to find out how much I love the orangey-red, green and minty tones together. It just feels fresh and exciting.

NOTES: I thought the ‘Cashmere’ Naghedi bag would pair perfectly with this color combo — not too bright, not too warm-toned against the white and it lets the pop of color do it’s thing. The perfect neutral bag, really. Exciting news: Reformation brought their swim line back this year and of course, it’s so good. This retro one is probably my favorite of the entire bunch (but don’t quote me on that — I wanna try ALL of them).

Capsule 2: Lean Into Luxe

Since I’m focusing on the larger Naghedi bag, I didn’t want the black to be too overwhelming and read cold-weather. I found adding in tan tones and gold jewelry helps balance it all out and makes the whole outfit feel luxe.

NOTES: In case you missed it — I added this bikini to the Bikini Guide Announcement I did recently. Ever since, I’ve been itching to style it up. Choosing which Naghedi bag to go with was hard (honestly, they all looked pretty frickin’ good). BUT I finally landed with the bag in ‘Onyx’ to tie in the black details on the suit.

Capsule 3: A Little Boho

I was so close to pairing the ‘Ecru’ colored bag with a super minimal, monochromatic look (which always works), but…then my brain screamed: “ELECTRIC BLUE! DO THE ELECTRIC BLUE!” It’s my color of the year.

NOTES: Was I expecting to pair said electric blue with an orange and white crotchet set and red bandana? No, not at first. But I love the way it came out. When in doubt, just try it out. You’ll be shocked to see how many colors complement each other in an unexpected but-not-too-crazy way. And a moment for that towel. I didn’t realize how bad I wanted cute beach towels till I started this post.

Capsule 4: Ready To Play

I thought the ‘Dusk’ color Naghedi bag would be the hardest to style up, but I ended up having a ton of fun with it. It definitely worked with neutral options, but when I saw that cute, yellow striped bikini…I knew I had to pair them together. A touch of pastel always feels playful.

NOTES: We decided we’re loving overalls again (and they happen to make great swimsuit coverups, especially if you’re going from the beach to lunch). They always manage to give that perfectly vintage-yet-effortless feel. 

Capsule 5: Neutral Tones

Because what would summer be if I didn’t style up a girl-next-door, striped suit? But I’m finding I either wanna go completely playful and graphic or keep it super sleek and pair it with tan tones. I went with the latter this time.

NOTES: The black and white stripes paired perfectly with the ‘Mink’ colored Naghedi bag. That warmer-toned bag with light, tan sandals and a cream-colored coverup set helps make the black and white stripes feel a little softer.

Capsule 6: Go Full-On Graphics

I love the slightly graphic, abstract weaving on this Naghedi bag so, I wanted to play into that graphic by adding a super graphic coverup.

NOTES: Farm Rio did a collab with Havaianas and it’s so fun (we all knew it would be, though).

Capsule 7: Chic + Moody

So. I wasn’t expecting to pair a leopard swimsuit with the graphic Naghedi bag in ‘Basalt’ at first, but finding ways to mix patterns has been a little personal goal of mine. What did we end up with? Something that screams: MOOD.

NOTES: The graphic print of the bag is super subtle, so it easily works with other patterns and colors. But what really got me was that inky-blue weaved into it — the warm tones of the leopard print and rich, maroon flip-flops blended exactly the way I was hoping.

Capsule 8: Sweet Like Cherries

Kat had a vision for the ‘Lilac’ Naghedi bag and sent me over this gorgeous color-combination. Don’t be scared of mixing pinks, purples and reds together — I promise you don’t look like a walking Valentines day card. It helps to balance it out with some tan sandals, gold jewelry and brown sunnies (or any warmer-toned accessories).

NOTES: Despite the Lilac color, you can get a ton of use out of this bag and you’d be shocked by how many outfit combos it’ll go with. Maybe it’s the fact that this particular shade of Lilac is a little more dusty (in the best way possible). 

What’s the decision, guys? Which color bag is the fave??
