Now that spring is upon us we can officially start shopping for the “It” spring bag. I wanted to compile a selection of my favorites from each trend, you can find these bag silhouettes across any price point and they will be popping up everywhere(from Target to Neimans). Bucket bags seem to be here for yet another season(yay!), and designers have officially started to include tech into their designs, the classic satchel is getting a new twist with brighter colors and fresh designs. I am so pleased to see that the saddle bag is back for another season, this particular trend is practical and classic.
I have blogged before about the bucket bag, I started seeing this silhouette pop up across all brands this past fall. I am so happy to see the beautiful leather bucket bag make its spring debut, pick up a bucket bag in a bright color or pattern, and wear it with everything from skinnies and flats, to your favorite Easter dress.
The classic satchel bag gets a spring twist with nude tones and some new embroidery, when shopping for this silhouette, look for something that can be carried in hand, or on the elbow. A true satchel is not meant for the shoulder. This bag should be able to carry all your essentials and then some. I love how this particular bag lends a pop of color to your work wardrobe.
Saddle bags have become increasingly chic in the past couple of years, with the gaining popularity of the cross body, the saddle bag has undergone its own transformation. This bag silhouette is perfect for the girl on the go, and can be found at any price point. Whether you are finally investing in that Chloe bag, or just need something that can carry your essentials at that festival you have tickets to.
Finally the fashion world has fully embraced technology, possibly the most exciting spring bag trend is the tech bag. These fun micro bags are built for the purpose of holding your iPhone 6 (or 6 plus) and the best can function as both a wristlet and cross body. Stash your phone, credit card, and lipstick and you are good to go. You should be able to find this type of bag at any price point but the truly outstanding pieces can be found on the designer level.
Don’t mind the bare toes, they haven’t seen the sky in awhile. I have been tracking the “off the shoulder” style for awhile but had yet to find a top that I would really enjoy and get excited about. Of course a cream top would catch my fancy(you know my thing about cream tops). I love that I found something that fits this trend but also stays true to my style. That is the perfect blend of a trend, when you can seamlessly mix a piece into your existing wardrobe. I already had the skinny jeans and wedges, I was able to grab this top and create a look with pieces I already had in my closet. I would get such a kick out of wearing this top with my flares, and some mule heels. But its easier to keep this style current by pairing it with some jeggings and a faux suede wedge.
As I sit here and write this post, there is currently 6 inches of snow on the ground. But that doesn’t stop me from dreaming of spring weather. As we move into warmer climate its time to shed the heavier layers and darker colors for lighter layers and some bright colors!
I find the easiest way to mix in color trends is to accessorize with them. I can still use my foundation pieces to create classic looks and add in a twist of trend with some affordable accessories. I am linking some accessories that work with these trendy colors, but look for them when shopping at your regular places. These colors and slight variations of them should be popping everywhere! Dressing for transitional weather can be tough. I find myself walking out the door in a sweater, and by the afternoon I am wishing for a tank top. Every freaking time I do this, I am mad at myself so its my aim this spring to stick to the light layers routine. I plan on mixing in Rose Quartz and Serenity through scarves, and jewelry.
