There's something about metallics that make us crazy – in a good way. Sure, we love shiny things (they're as pretty as they are distracting), but it's more about the overall edgy look of metallic styles that has us scoping out gold, copper and silver-hued pieces this summer. Take a look at some of our latest gleaming finds.

Metallic Bags

Carry your essentials in a bag that gets noticed. We're loving metallics this season and bags are no exception. Clutches, totes and satchels all get the shiny treatment for a glam and ultra-stylish look this summer.

1Cute clutch

We love this metallic straw clutch (Gap, $50) featuring a bronze or silver finish. Perfect for a night out when a larger bag will be too cumbersome – or when you just want to bust out your best moves on the dance floor without worrying about smacking someone with your oversize tote.

2Structured tote

Gold patent and natural-hued leather are woven together to create a stylishly structured tote bag (Kate Spade, $345) just the right size for a day of running errands – and looking chic while shopping. We love the simple design with a metallic twist.

3Metallic satchel

Be bold in bronze with this slouchy Nanette Lepore satchel (Zappos Couture, $248) featuring black handles and a detachable gold cross body chain. We love the distressed metallic leather and multipurpose vibe of this easy-to-wear bag.
