Fresh Picks: Spring Handbag Trends

bags, Cole Haan, crossbody bags, designer handbags, drawstring bags, handbag trends, handbags, kate spade, leather bags, leather handbags, marc by marc jacobs, nylon bags, purses, spring fashion, spring handbag trends, spring style, stylish handbags, stylish purses, tote bags, trendy bags, women, women's bagsEvery season brings with it new covetable trends in clothing, shoes and beauty, but let’s not forget the most oft-used, practical fashion staple: the handbag. This spring’s hottest handbag trends are a mixture of relaxed and structured elements.

Here are four spring handbag trends that are worthy to be on your style radar:

1. Nylon: lightweight and fuss-free, today’s latest crop of nylon handbags are a lot more stylish than their older counterparts. Pick one in a pop color like the Marc by Marc Jacobs Preppy Nylon Sasha. Its relaxed, simple shape makes it the perfect daytime bag.

2. Drawstring Closure: There’s a classic, slightly-nautical feel to the drawstring bag that makes it utterly charming. A single-strap leather version, like the Cole Haan Valise Denney Drawstring, makes the most versatile choice for week-long wear.

3. Structured Crossbody: While we’ve seen a huge rise in the popularity of the crossbody bag, the recent versions we’ve been seeing lean towards a more tailored, lady-like silhouette. A good example is the Kate Spade Madeline. The removable crossbody strap lends versatility to this piece, letting you wear it as a hand-held satchel for dressier outfits.

4. Leather Tote: This perennial favorite is perfect for the working woman who wants a stylish, roomy carry-all. Look for classic details like in the Marc by Marc Jacobs D1 Bianca Hayley Tote. The chic, pared-down design makes it super wearable, from the office to a dinner date.
