Every 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.
