Best Bags for Spring!

Help! I need a spring bag that’s cute but big enough for all my stuff. Any suggestions?

Hunting for a handbag that’s roomy enough for all your everyday essentials can be hard. You want a bag that’ll fit your cell, crunchy granola bar, keys, cherry chapstick AND that emergency check-up compact. But you also wanna make sure that your carryall is super adorable. Lucky for you we’ve found bags that are fun and functional. From pretty purses to hot hobos, sling our faves over your shoulder and get stylin’ for spring. 

Beachy Bag
Lighter colors are perf for spring purses. The seashell shape, crocheted cotton fabric and khaki-colored piping reminds us that summer’s right around the corner. Wear with low-key cutoff shorts and a fab, flowy top.
Kimichi Blue Shell Bag, $50,
Preppy Purse
This bag’s blue hue is springy but not too bold and tiny eyelets add a touch of texture. Feels nautical-cool with a pretty polo or sweet sundress.
AE Eyelet Tote, $30,
Hippie Handbag
Fringe is fierce right now. We heart it as an accent on sizzlin’ suede bags. Goes well with breezy blouses and destroyed denim for a haute hippie vibe.
Fringe Tote, $20,
Colorful Carryall
Nothing goes with warm weather like bold buds. These bright blooms add extra oomph to any spring outfit.
Floral Tote, $20,
Steely Style
Make like a city slicker and hit the town with an oversized carryall. The studs make it rocker-ready, but the great gray hue keeps it way wearable. Sport it with the ever-hip skinny jeans, canvas sneaks and a tee.
