Now that spring is here (officially, anyway), it’s time to start turning our attention toward the endless stream of seasonal attire and accessories hitting shelves.
While we’re not running out to buy an entirely new wardrobe, there are a few items we think are worth snapping up to start the season in style—namely, a fabulous new spring bag. For those who don’t feel like buying a whole new outfit, an eye-catching new bag can completely transform an outfit, whether it’s a cocktail dress or a simple T-shirt and jeans.
Not sure which spring bag to snag? Our spring bag guide takes its cues from Spring 2013 runways, which featured an eclectic mix of daytime cluches (many of which looked boxy and hard-shelled), structured satchels, chic crossbody styles, and even a leather backpack or two.
Here, we’ve rounded up 50 runway-inspired bags in a variety of styles, spring-y shades, and price points that’ll add pop to your spring looks (and might even carry you through summer and fall!). From studded bags by Rebecca Minkoff to a floral Pashli tote by Phillip Lim and a surprisingly affordable leather backpack from Madewell, we’re sure you’ll find something to suit your fancy. Happy shopping!
