As it is I am a handbag girl, but this season’s bags are making my love for bags into a mild obsession. The bright colors remind me of yummy popsicles in limes, tangerines, and mango (yes I just made mango a color), and like popsicles during the warmer months I can’t just have one!
Here are the season’s yummiest bags and like me I’m certain that you will want them all.
This Reed Krakoff Boxer Tote is a must-have this season. The color alone makes me a big fan, but add the structure with the belted straps and cool envelope pocket in the front and I’m definitely sold. This bag is currently pre-order only and can be expected to ship in April. So head over to neimanmarcus.com before they sell out!
Bottega Veneta does orange so well and this woven tote is no exception. When I first realized that tangerine/orange would be a handbag color trend this season I had a feeling that it would be everywhere and everyone would have one; however, I think there is more than enough room for just one or two more orange bags this spring.
Kate Spade brought two amazing trends together to make the perfect little-big tote (you can expand it). The lime green and white stripes make you want to hit the beach, or take a stroll at your local farmers market.
Marc Jacobs hit on another major trend this season—color blocking. This MARC by Marc Jacobs ‘Werdie Top-Handle Messenger Bag’ is the hippest choice for any casual, day outfit or when you need a bag that will hold everything you need. The two front pockets are perfect for cell phones, cameras, batteries, lip gloss, keys…
If bright popsicle colors and color blocking aren’t your idea of a great spring purse for one reason or another, perhaps this gorgeous Valentino ‘Rockstud’ crossbody bag will strike your fancy. The feminine floral embroidery is nicely contrasted with studs on the leather strap. The juxtaposition between ladylike and edgy is perfection. This one is also on pre-order at neimanmarcus.com
Every girl needs a clutch for a warm, clear sky, springtime evening party. This Christian Louboutin pink, painterly-print, floral satin clutch is the perfect accessory for all of your favorite spring dresses…especially a classic white dress. Grab your favorite red-soled shoes to match and you’ll be the most envied gal at the party.
