Zeba Khan: She Shopped, She Scored

Update your wardrobe with a new handbag

by: Zeba Khan

"You're hot then you're cold, you're yes then you're no..." With the weather being SUCH a tease this year, it's hard to get excited about dressing for Spring. How can you shop for florals and skirts when you still need to bundle up every time you step outside? Thank goodness for handbags. They're an easy way to freshen up your outfit - even when the weather is not cooperating. Here are three bag trends that will be popular this spring:

Their resurgence in popularity can be linked to the highly coveted Mansur Gavriel bucket bags - the slouchy drawstring style works well with casual looks.

1. Bucket bag, Express, $59.50

2. Bucket bag, H&M, $29.95

3. Bucket bag, Forever21, $29.90


Seventies fashion is a strong influence this year (hello flared jeans!) so it's no wonder that fringe and pom pom details will be super-popular for spring and summer.

1. Hardegree, ALDO, $60

2. Straw Tote, Old Navy, $25

3. Fringe Crossbody bag, Le Chateau, $39.95


Large totes are always a life-saver - from kids' snacks to laptops, there's space for everything! Spring totes are colorful - with perforation and studding details to brighten up your whole look.

1) Hadley Tote, Nine West, $100

2) Perforated Faux Leather Tote, Old Navy, $35

3) Large Perforated Tote Bag, Express, $59.90

It's hard for me to pick a favorite from the nine bags featured above... but I'm especially loving the studded Hadley Tote from Nine West - did you know it made it on to the list of Oprah's Favorite Things last year?
