Miu Miu’s Matelassé leather tote for Spring and Our Other Top Picks

on March 7th, 2012

When you think of springtime purses, you typically think of pastel or sherbet bags that beckon the floral colors of spring. We’ve searched for the top handbag trends for spring and found five handbags that express different styles that might not be in your typical spring accessories closet, but ones that will put you ahead of the rest for the new season. The first hot trend for spring is raffia. Raffia is a palm-like material that we are starting to see in tons of shoes, accessories, and now bags.

Our favorite one is the Burberry leather and raffia shoulder bag for $1,295. Its tan raffia base combined with caramel leather detailing give it an exotic yet modern feel. Because of the combinations of two neutrals, this bag goes great with almost any outfit and screams “fashion-forward.

The next handbag trend for spring is a spin on the typical evening clutch – the envelope clutch. Our choice is the Chloé color-block leather envelope clutch for $450. This clutch in particular embodies a traditional trend, color blocking, and a more contemporary trend, the envelope style. The lime green has a springy punch against two different shades of brown, creating a very vintage vibe. The soft leather elements and clean distinction in color blocking allow it to be able to have a more casual appearance than the usual purse you’d bring out with you on a Saturday night. The next change for handbags in spring is the textured tote. Whether it’s woven or embossed, spring will bring about tons of texture in oversized bags like totes.

Our pick is the Miu Miu’s Matelassé leather tote for $2,200. Its soft rose pink color acts a neutral but gives a bit more vibrancy than just a classic beige. The subtly ruffled exterior adds an element to the overly structured and tailored bags we’ve been so used to seeing in the past. The partially silver linked handles create an additional form of texture that ties everything together in a gorgeous, sophisticated bag.

The fourth spring handbag that we desperately need is the Victoria Beckham Victoria leather tote for $3,250. This beautifully crafted tote makes a statement with a bold pop or orange with black sides and handles. The geometric shape and expertly chosen hues make it not only chic and elegant, but also sultry and edgy. The last handbag look for spring is carrying a bright satchel.

Our pick is the Proenza Schouler small leather satchel for $1,225. The neon-coral color gives it a fashionable pop of color that will stand out against any outfit. The belt buckle straps and gold hardware are sleek additions to this fabulous bag. Whatever your style is, these five bags are the top choices for spring and utterly amazing.

Neon Bags Will Brighten Up Your Spring

We all have our favorite black bag that goes with everything but with Spring in the fashion forefront, it is time for a change! The new bag trend is bright, neon bags that add bold pops of color to any ensemble.

The Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Snake Bag in Aqua available for $195 is a perfect bag to fit in with this new trend. Its bright blue aqua, the color of the ocean in Miami, color creates a electric slide vibrancy that can jazz up any boring outfit. The snakeskin texture and the silver chain-link strap add texture and decorative elements to the bold bag.

Another bag we like that falls under this fashion category is the Marc by Marc Jacobs Turnlock Python Shine Messenger Bag in Fluoro Lime available for $498. This bag is almost highlighter neon yellow and really shines against a plain outfit or a black dress. Its messenger style allows it to be more practical in that it will be able to hold all of your items. The optional long strap also makes for great versatility.

Foley + Corinna Lady City Tote

The BE & D Agren Satchel in Lava available for $607.60 is a great bright tangerine color with a soft natural brown trim. This contrast along with the gold hardware detail and the snake pattern corner trim make the orange color pop even more.

This Foley + Corinna Lady City Tote available for $345 is one of our favorite neon-inspired bags this season. The turquoise demeanor stands out beautifully on the soft leather. The gold detailing and tassel zippers make for a gorgeous bag that you can actually fit all your stuff in or take on a weekend trip.

Lastly, for a night out on the town, we love this bright red House of Harlow 1960 Val Clutch available for $195. This vintage-inspired fiery red clutch is the perfect accessory for a night out due to its leopard-head clasp, gold adornment, and snakeskin texture. Although small, this clutch will be eye-catching against any little black dress! Whether you want a satchel, a tote, a messenger bag, or even a clutch, there is definitely a bold vivacious bright bag out there for you that will be sure to make you glow!
