Oh how I love handbags! Spring is in the air and there’s always something about the change in seasons that has most of us reevaluating our handbag collection, and the rest of our wardrobe for that matter. So many of my clients, and myself included, have been trying to decide what bag to buy for spring. With so many new bags for the season I decided to help you find the perfect bag to add to your collection with my ultimate bag guide, along with some of my current favorite picks.
First, I want to share the newest handbag I added to my collection. As a stylist I see so many beautiful things on a daily basis it can be difficult to make a final purchase decision for myself! However, recently I came across this INSANE Prada Cahier shoulder bag and fell completely in love. The gorgeous white color caught my attention right away (naturally) but it was also the unique trunk style of the bag and all the incredible details that really set this stunner apart from anything I’ve seen recently. I’m SO happy about this purchase. If you like the style of this bag but you’re not ready to make the investment I did find a crossbody bag by Michael Kors with a similar look in a beautiful blush tone – and it’s even on sale!
As women we need a bag to use on a daily basis. We’re all constantly on-the-go so it’s important that our everyday bags are something that can keep up with our busy schedules and hold everything we need throughout the day. A couple years ago I purchased the Celine Phantom bag in a gorgeous red color. While I loved the pop of color and the quality of Celine, I found that I didn’t love the fact that I wasn’t able to completely close the top of the bag. From personal experience I find the best everyday bags are roomy enough to fit a laptop and have multiple ways to carry the bag with handles and straps. I still can’t get enough of my Collecte bag as an everyday option it’s functional and I always get so many compliments when I use it because of the unique design.
There are times when we don’t need to carry everything we typically do on a daily basis, which is why I think every woman needs a crossbody bag in her wardrobe. Crossbody bags are great for weekends and traveling, when you need some essentials without the bulk of your everyday bag. As a mom I find crossbody bags even more essential when I’m out and about with the kids. Another reason I’m so excited about my new Prada bag.
Every woman needs a great evening bag in her wardrobe. Let’s face it when we’re heading out for the night we don’t want to be toting around a big bag. Since evening bags are perfect for a night out, I suggest choosing one that has some interesting details to it like sequins, studs or even a bow to make it feel extra special.
Between spring break vacations and summer right around the corner, beach bags are a must! Whether you’re going to the beach or the pool you need a chic bag to carry your necessities. I love straw bags for the beach because they really take your beachwear look to the next level and they’re super durable.
This season’s biggest bag trend is definitely the belt bag. Celebrities and bloggers everywhere have already started wearing this trend. The Gucci belt bag has been one of the hottest bags of the season. It’s a major 90’s throwback trend, but one that’s perfect for women on-the-go because they allow you to be completely hands free with your bag. While it’s a throwback trend there are so many chic options it feels like a whole new trend!
