Colourblocked Handbags

A great way to wear this season's hottest trend

Colourblocked Handbags

Big, bold, and bright colour is everywhere this spring. An easy way to incorporate this into your wardrobe is with cute, colourblocked accessories. Keep your great, classic wardrobe and slide in a new handbag to instantly update yourself.

Here are a couple of bags I'm crsushing on—both premium and value-priced:

I've long been a fan of the Marc by Marc Jacobs line of handbags and I think his Classic Q Hillier is the quintessential hobo bag. This more structured Werdie Colourblocked Messenger bag is a slightly safe but punched-up neutral. It retails for about $500:

When I popped into Banana Republic a week ago, I noticed this cute ladylike Karlie for $124. I love the chain detail and the black trim really grounds the bright colours. I like that it's a little smaller in size, too:

I usually buy one handbag per season—Fall is usually a splurge bag and Spring is more value-priced. Last Fall, I splurged on a chestnut-coloured suede and leather 797 Satchel from Tory Burch that was about $500. I love that it's structred and has a top-handle but I also adore the hands-free option of the cross-body strap. This spring, she's introduced this cool version for closer to $600. I love mustard yellow with navy and denim and the logo-T double as a key ring:

On the brighter and cheaper side, this bright Hermes-inspired by David Dixon for Town Shoes is the boldest of the bunch! Hot pink is the colour in handbags this spring and Celine's $2000 Luggage Tote in Hot Pink is the fashion world's must-have. At $125, this is yours:
