5 Bag trends for spring
There are so many reasons to celebrate spring... not the least of which is an opportunity to switch to a new handbag! Check out this spring's top five handbag trends.
You can spruce up your look this spring without investing in a new wardrobe. Update your outfits by accessorizing with the hottest handbags of the season.
Think fringe. Boho. Even hobo! Handbags embellished with tassels are all the rage this spring. You can opt for classy tailored tassels that are structured and firm or trendy relaxed tassels that are loose and flirty. Keep the colors and fabrics light for spring, and you'll be right on the fashion mark.
Lots of texture
Have you ever seen a handbag you just had to touch? That purse should be yours this season. The hottest bags feature gorgeous and unique textures: colorful beading, jeweled designs and so many other wonderful details. Add a textured handbag to an otherwise conservative ensemble to watch it really pop!
We're so glad the colorblock trend has returned! There's no easier way to update a tired wardrobe than with a fabulous, colorful handbag. Youthful, springy colorblocks purses boast stand-out prints paired with traditional solid colors. Pair a colorblocked handbag with a solid outfit for an instantly fresh look.
White and bright
A white handbag? Absolutely! It's one of this spring's hottest trends. The great thing about white is that it works in every fabric: leather, canvas, stray, you name it! Wear it with bold patterns (like the trendy tribal tunic) or match it to an all-white outfit a la Camilla Alves.
Bucket bags aren't just practical, they're seriously stylish! Top designers featured bucket bags all over the Spring 2011 runways. Buy yours in buttery-soft leather or a summer-weight canvas. Look for the other trendy features listed here to be a fashion frontrunner this season.
