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:
Maybe this lovely YMC blogger needs to read this post.
